would have appeared to do exactly the same. The wicket looks really excellent. It is set fair daily, should not alter considerably. Yes, Wood was available for choice. But unfortunately, he has missed out. Archer’s a man who is come in and impressed. He is very calm if he performs. He is a really exciting prospect. Yeah, the favorites label sits comfortably. It has been a collective force for us.

Transferring to have a bowl. Early beginning in the Oval, when there is anything at the wicket, it is today. Shamsi, Miller, Morris, Steyn not enjoying. Steyn’s approximately 80%.
