Ball spinning & spitting like mad.

Great start by England Broad has 3 wickets Leach just got his 1st since 2019!

When you said 83-5 I assumed England were batting first…

Huge shout for LBW against Sibley. Given not out.
Crawley runs, both at same end.
Fielder on ground fluffy the throw throws on second attempt.
Fielder at stumps for run out is knocked out the way by another fielder, fluffed hitting stumps. Does hit stumps on 2nd attempt but Crawley has got back.
Buster Keaton movie stuff

8-0 2.2 overs

England 17-2

Crawley not judging the pace of the ball properly and spoons an easy catch. Will they make 100, will the match last more than a day…

52 - 2 Root and Bairstow bringing about a bit of a recovery.
