That spell from woakes was one hell of a spell.

Kohli is best batsman in the world, but it looked like when woakes would get him, not if woakes would get him.

And he did! Two balls in a row! Shame butlers having a mare, ish, in the slips.

Who said woakes was a step backwards 😂😂😂😂

In those conditions most English Seamers would have got wickets  also with England 1- 0 up    an opportunity as been missed  Porter   or another young seamer should have been selected

Not true, broad and Curran only got 1 each... and broad is one of Englands best.

If that's the case
Even more reason to see what Englands next generation of seamers can do at test level

Shame about the rain but a good test of the batsmen so far. Anderson as good as usual when its swinging and a great spell by woakes. Indian batsmen exposed again sadly.. lets prey that India bowl badly or Englands batsmen somehow cope better as history shows they arent much better. Still. Its a good test of them and thats what we want from a test match.

Anderson getting the plaudits and right so but Woakes showed today how good he can be when fit. He has a bit of extra pace an an outswinger just like Jimmy

If you were being over critical you could say he only takes the ball away from the right handers. But....not many England bowlers can move it both ways in my memory anyway(and were any good)

Eh, Woakes gets loads of wickets with the one that comes back in! Shame he wasn't fit over the winter, we all know he's class in England but will be interesting to see if he can make the step up with a Kookaburra ball.

It was an outstanding bowling performance all round. Lets see how the Indians bowl. Slip catching still found wanting. Jos Butler with 2 second chances.

Couple of the usual suspects that could find a negative in any performance.

 reality of yesterday 2 wickets in perfect English swing bowling conditions  as shown in the first test against a poor  indian batting side.
As for overseas  sky stat showed each wicket ave over 50

Instead of changing test matches to 4 days, or playing them at night, or getting in some dancing girls, they should use the duke ball all round the world, or get kookuburra to make a ball with a bigger seam, that would get the balance in favour of the bowlers and make it more attractive to the public.

Even Pointing has tried (not sure if he achieved it) getting the duke ball in shield cricket.

I think bat dominating ball has made tests a bit boring for the average punter.

If you look at Ashwin, he still bowled brilliantly in the first test with a dukes so quality spinners I don't think would be affected by a different ball than a kook or sg....

.. and broad is one of Englands best.

I disagree, I think Broad is on a one way moped-ride to pootown.

I dont think he will be in the side by the end of the year.

I agree .....kook balls should be ditched for dukes in all tests , everywhere.
Oz have been using dukes for 2nd half of the shield season for the last 2 years (i think) , and i haven't heard any news of them ditching it , so i guess it will happen again this season (it would be stupid to stop doing this now , considering an ashes tour coming up next year).
