    Properr krigged!
    Lyon hit out the attack once, Root 50, century partnership, Denly 50.
    Still notionally 22 overs to bowl.
    Eng need to bat through all of them to get the Aussie bowlers properly tired.

    This is more like a Test match. Attritional accruing of runs at scarcely more than 2 an over.
    Eng only need another 301.

    England seemed to have operated without a pair of openers for so long,
    I assume the first 2 wickets will seldom amass any meaningful number of runs.
    Purposeful 50s from Root & Denly will put a different perspective on the match situation,
    if ultimately merely prolonging an easily forseen outcome.

    Not that I'm a flesh eater,
    but,
    there look to be quite a few portions in Sarah Vine.

    Far from promoting the (dismal) prospect of 4-day Tests,
    the ICC should be considering 6-innings Tests.

    Gastronomic update.
    Damas Gate was 'out' of felafel by the time Oliver & myself entered. We enquired and one the till people told us 'More will be coming in 15 minutes'. We waited for @hamrack to arrive, but did not see the promised delivery. The meat-free kibbe featured spinach, (or another green leaf), and pomegranate pearls. Adjacent in the serve yourself display were large domed items. I enquired and was told they were 'felafel mixture coating with a lightly spiced vegetable filling'. They were just £1 a piece and featured large yielding chunks of either squash or sweet potato within a filling filling.
    If @platypus does not lead a 2nd Felafel Ride, a loosely copycatting 'Kibbe Ride' might find some takers.

    The experiment of playing Root as 3rd opener is giving consistent results.
