And Ryan, having declined to exert himself in the field to Patto's bowling, makes amends by taking off Simpson's bail on 49. Reward for one who did not look like he wanted another spell before lunch ! That's the fourth clean bowled, I think. We are keeping to the task

420-8. 500 looks a long way off now - it sounds like we've largely been excellent with the ball today.

A vg morning for us. We restricted them to just 84 runs and got 4 wickets, which is exceptional considering they would have been looking to score as quickly as they could.

We need the last two wickets pdq for not many runs, then bat and bat and bat........ till lunch on the final day if neccessary.

Yes a very good morning with sensible use of our bowlers. We need to keep it tight after lunch and get them out for under 450. Well done Adil and well done to the skipper for choice of bowlers today and keeping them under control. Come on batsmen!

If we keep them under 450 then we'll need no more than 300 to avoid the follow on. Not sure they'd enforce it unless the conditions were right but it would be a huge psychological advantage.

Talking about follow ons already, that's pessimistic even for me.

Roland-jones holed out trying to press the pace against Adil. Not the first...

And Finn plumb in front of middle stump on the back foot. Tried looking bemused but didn't work. Last six for 100 runs. So far, so good.

Nice set of people in the stand.

Probably as good as could be expected given the overnight score.

The flip side of course is that perhaps batting isn't as easy as it looked yesterday. Is it still bright sunshine down there?

Coad bowled the most overs with the best economy rate.
Excellent performance in that heat.

Bright sunshine. Batting wasn't easy because the bowling was good. In our reply, Lyth looks utterly on top of his game, Lees anything but.

Funny thing is that the only innings I've seen live of Adams this year where he did not look on top form was his Championship century!

There goes the obligatory early wicket. Now that's out of the way we can get on with our innings.

Harry Brook in at three!

Another Lees failure but great chance for young Brook to show his ability as an opener for the future.

Might be worth saying nothing about the prospect of any of our batsmen for the next 30 minutes or so - so as not to put the mockers on them like we usually do!

Harry Brook was born in February 1999. Does anyone know if any players born in the 21st century have made a first class debut yet?

Lees was all at sea. Brook lucky to survive first few balls from RoJo.

Unlucky for Less. Poor umpiring. Pitched outside leg according to the commentary.

Am sitting square-on so can't comment.
Must be regarded as a mercy killing. He could not put bat on ball.
