Hope no-one has purchased tickets for the 4th day of the test. I will be amazed if the test starting tomorrow lasts longer than tea on the third day. A complete mis-match!!

Woakes for Toblerone, otherwise unchanged, it looks like. Marginally stronger team on paper than last outing. Wonder what effect if any the torrential rain of yesterday might have had.

Looks like some decent weather for the week-end so I hope for the clubs sake they do go into the 4th day.

I'm not as foolhardy as to buy a ticket but I've left Monday open and will go if there's a decent wedge of cricket to see and the prices are reasonable.

Was rather hoping they'd keep R-J with them for the next few weeks.

Good luck to those travelling by car!!

What planning - Leeds Carnival, Leeds Festival & the Leeds Test match all this weekend.

Idleman -- Strauss's team do have two very important CC matches during the last two tests!! (With tongue very firmly in cheek).

Presume with Anderson approaching 500 wickets and Broad within reach of 400 neither of them were keen on being rested against a team of 'walking wickets'.

Woakes is now a returning regular so should return but TRJ is unlucky to be dropped.

I think he has shown enough to be pretty sure of his place in the ashes squad.
