Except for England’s catching of course. It’s one of the clichés of modern cricket that fielding is so much better. Some of it is, but (close) catching isn’t.

88 overs bowled day one, by about 6.30.

That’s the worst aspect – but rather 88 like that, than 40 in that competition in Taunton last night!

Another ‘dolly’ by Cook. I wish I’d kept a record of the number of catches he’s dropped and offset the runs it has cost England against the runs he’s scored. Interesting – perhaps Bob M. has some stats?

There was a suggestion on Sky today that he only catches just over 50% – I think. Maybe I misheard? Meanwhile Malan owes England about 120, before his innings starts!!
