    ... and the rain arrives - early lunch though, so Windies need to keep up the rain dances.

    Facile victory for England to take the series. 10 wickets in the match for Broad.

    Just in time though, it's been raining since they got the last man out.

    Broad is a fantastic cricketer but is forever tainted by his non walk against the Aussies.

    To this day I wonder how / why Aleem Dar never gave him out.
    Because he thought Broad missed it and the ball deflected off the keeper's gloves to slip. He got the first bit wrong - Broad did edge it but not straight to slip as is often assumed. In fact the big deviation is not from Broad's bat but from the keeper's gloves.

    Hardly anyone walks these days. Was Broad doing anything different from the players who edge to third slip and stands waiting for the umpire's finger? He probably expected to be given out and thought "Wow! That's a wee Brucie. Take that".

    Yes I get all that. But Dar is an elite umpire, it was spin bowling and a huge nick.

    Very few people walk but Broad just brought the all round cheating (as that's what it is) into the limelight.

    I'm not bothered either way. Pro's cheat in all sports and if it was today it would have been interesting to see if he would have walked or waited for DRS to send him packing.

    Sad to see how weak W Indies have become.
    It is funny because I saw a fair bit of them on their last tour in England and had high hopes that the younger players they were bleeding in could raise them up a level.

    I think a particular disappointment is the drop in form of Shai Hope. Last tour he scored memorable centuries in both innings at Headingley. He hasnít made much impact on this tour.

    On the plus side they do have some depth in bowling, albeit carrying some injuries just now, and Holder is relatively young to be captain and rated as one of the best all-rounders in the world. At bat, I think Hetmyer has natural talent but similarly to Dowrich he needs to be able to play Test cricket, not TV cricket.

    I'd expect the Pakistan tests to be a bit tougher. There's some experienced guys in their squad plus a teenage pace sensation Naseem Shah.

    Shah is certainly quite the the young talent.

    I love Pakistan, they can be be brilliant or an absolute shambles and usually no middle ground. Just like watching Hibs.

    Tougher test as expected against experienced batsmen. Mind you the pacemen didn't bowl too well earlier.

    England were all over the place once the new ball had worn off. There was a lot of bounce of the pitch that made lbw unlikely and Pakistan took full advantage.

    United we stand here....

    Poor batting performance from the guys at the top of the England batting order yesterday evening.

    Great bowling performance from England today after a pitiful batting performance. England looked happy to stick around and block rather than take the game to Pakistan. All credit to Pakistan who bowled beautifully in the morning. Watching Pakistan is a bit like watching hibs, sometimes sublime, and sometimes dreadful. I still think Pakistan will win it though, they have real pace and quality spin.

    A fine victory for England inside 4 days today, enthralling stuff.

    I have been neglecting this thread sadly, and this match has plenty going on.

    Hard to see how England donít win this Test and the series.

    A huge batting effort from Zak Crawley that signals his ability, though also sets himself a high bar! Buttler showing he can bat for a lengthy period, which he needed because Foakes is very much pressing him for the gloves. And Jimmy Anderson narrowing in on 600 wickets.

    I donít think Pakistan have actually been that bad, but the pitch was relatively friendly for the first innings and the weather meant Anderson was always likely to get something.

    Finally weíre going to get some play today. Draw looks long odds on, but it would be nice for Anderson to take 600 wickets.
