    I half buy this - but he was already seen as a great batsman, but for whatever reasons connected to him and previous off field leadership team - could not get this side to play anything like how they have in the 4 matches since he stood down.
    When he sits alone with a beer and replays his captaincy there must be a decent slice of regret.

    No doubt he has Stokes's back - but it would be hard not to reflect somewhat self critically on what might have been.

    Wonder how Root feels - turns out we've had the best test side in the world for years - he just sucked at captaincy.

    Unreal. Cannot believe this is England.

    Yep. There was no single there. Such a shame for Lees. He'd played beautifully.

    But generally, this is just fantastic cricket. First half of the summer has been an epic advert for test cricket. Endlessly good stuff.

    Yep, just be aware you can't bring in any booze to the blast/hundred. I've smuggled rum and coke and a flask of ice to that oval before though. The queues at the bar a few weeks back were pretty much a T20 innings long.

    On the plus side, daughter collected nearly £50 quids worth of discarded cups / carafes so she was happy with her night's earnings.

    Just re-read the Lords rules, and looks like you can take booze to any international though, regardless of format. All very confusing.
