    You just know Jennings is going to get a decent score now when it's entirely meaningless to prolong the torture of him opening.

    Which will keep him his place for the Ashes when the Aussies will tear him apart.

    On a positive note, the West Indies are now a bowler down so there's a chance we could bat out the next three days for a draw.

    It'll be the good old Alex Hales "1 good innings in 10", and he'll keep his place.

    I think they both learned it from Ian Bell.

    If they're going to back someone who might only get a score 1 in 10 it might as well be Jason Roy. At least his 1 will probably be a 100 ball 150 and it'll be entertaining.

    Forgive my lack of faith in Keaton Jennings, but I was quite relieved when he was out for 23.

    Joe Root has a knack for scoring runs when the series is over or in games where we'd win regardless of him performing...

    I’d say that’s only since he’s been captain
