Extra pace scrambles footwork, don't imagine he can keep up these speeds but 5 overs will do

The second was a great catch by Burns

Tea come at a right time.


Let wood recharge, and then another 3 or 4 wickets in a spell after tea please.

If Wood has seriously been bowling like this in the nets how has it taken until now for him to get a game?

Surely the management must have seen he was bowling 90+ regularly and how deadly the windies attacks were at that pace?

He played 3 lions games on the trot to prove his fitness but history shows tall and quick bowlers do well out there. The pitches seemed difficult to read in Barbados but after that you would think the penny would drop. Curran is a good player but whoever thought he could go from 3rd or 4th seamer to opening the bowling in place of Broad needs their head examined.

All games the selection has been suspect, Foakes should be playing here.

Commentators getting far too carried away with woods spell. Lets not forget its the windies - ranked at 8

Good spell but windies batsmen havent played him well, hasnt really moved off the straight

I scoffed at people continuing to hype Wood as a serious pace threat based on nothing more than a T20 spell to Root a couple of years ago when he was running in and bowl barely quicker than Woakes over the last few England appearances but he's managed to get himself healthy for the first time in forever and his new run up seems to have worked wonders. I'm glad to eat some humble pie on this one!
