Agreed that Bopara has had enough chances, I also think it's time to move on, if we look for alternatives to Morgan. Morgan will have this series though to prove himself, needs a big score at some stage top stop the questions.

Prior to me is the #1 wk/bat in the world now. His batting is assertive, never allows attacks to get on top of him and makes big runs often in pressure situations like yesterday.

Test is beautifully poised at lunch - Tendulkar could still get his ton, even if he does, we could still win. I think an India win is now out of the question though, they lost too many wickets in this morning's session to be set up for a chase.

Half tempted to take 1/2 a day off work and watch it...
