Surely its beneficial for the batsmen to find their form after the pandemic, rather than playing on a spicy wicket and eroding their confidence? West Indies have a gun attack as well.

All the more reason to throw challenges at them. Lets hope the test matches have better pitches!

Will Bracey be in contention for selection or will it be the same old stuff from the England selectors ?

Suggest he probably needed Denly to fail unless England want to make a change with the openers which I don't see happening

Yeah I don't think Bracey would have been anywhere near selection before this game started, so he'd have to do some serious leapfrogging to get in the test side which seems unlikely. Can't be doing his chances any harm though!

Why is Moeen Ali not getting a bowl? If he supposed to be playing as a batsman?

Bracey and Lawrence both look very strong. Leach looks like he had a hard day though!

I watched most of it, I don't think Leach bowled that badly, denly was quite severe on him at points

If Leach has got a bit of tap today it won't help at all. On the basis he is the best or specialist spinner, Ali will move into prime position.

I think myself England just need any sign to leave him out and bring Moeen in. Virdi hasn't played but again, if he has potential can he also bat?

Leach and Bess to me seem the best players but England like Ali.

Could be wrong of course!

Is just me imagining this or did Foakes keeping on the first day a clear message to Bairstow that he is behind Buttler and Foakes as keeper?  If he wants back in the team it will be as a specialist batsmen?

He should be behind those 2 but if he does play again can't believe it would be as a batsman alone. There's a few ahead of him in the que. He would have to displace the current keeper. You can't really hit your way out of trouble with test match fields.

As a batsman Denly,Lawrence and new guy Bracey, Root to come back for the second test should be ahead. No one mentions Joe Clarke anymore and he's highly rated.

So it's crowded if he's not keeping as well

Virdi is a genuine tail ender with the bat. Good spot on the keepers and YJB.
Mo bowled better than Leach today, despite Leach getting first go. Honestly Leach looked very very rusty. Mo looked sharper.

Pope and Laurence were playing beautifully. They looked a class above from what I saw today.

I watched the majority of the day.

And my overriding thoughts were -

1. The bowlers definitely look rusty and it must be a nightmare to get fully up the speed at that level
2. Lawrence is still in ridiculous nick after his winter Lions tour
3. Our batting stocks are alot deeper than our bowling or the teams are skewed and not picked correctly.

I was impressed with Bracey considering he was facing Jimmy (albeit rusty) with the new cherry I thought he did well.
