Tea, Day 3 : ENG 4/171 (Root 97, Bell 16).

England continue their mission to crush our spirits, digging in at a couple of runs an over, in complete control of the match and realising (unlike some of the Sky commentators) that there are still seven sessions left in this match.

Root looks like he will get to his hundred. Sorry, but I still don't think he is that convincing. I know he has plundered the county attacks this summer, but he looks very streaky at test level, and should have been swallowed in the slips last night. Anyway, good luck to him. Unlike our top order he has decided to put a price on his wicket and should get his ton after a nervous tea break.
