Definitely gives the Aussies plenty of time to work out a strategy before the Ashes hopefully BH...though by then Bairstow should of lost his mojo and Root hopefully as well.....and Smith finds his mojo again.....and Green does a Steve Waugh and announces himself to the English cricket fans.....

Amazing that this is basically the same team that got belted up all over Australia 6 months ago. Its incredible what an attacking positive mindset can do. The only hope for India is to break the Root/ Bairstow partnership in the first half hour then chip away at the rest but such is the belief in the England team they probably think that Jimmy Anderson could whip up a quick fire 30 to get them over the line!  India played into England's hands by going completely negative in their 2nd innings and failing to build on their lead sufficiently. A 425-450 target would have been a different proposition but then again who knows?
At least if England get to 378 it will obliterate the Stokes fuelled Headingly win of 2019 from the record books as England's highest ever 4th innings chase
Yes true Mike but lets face it if not for the inept umpiring from Joel Wilson equalled only by Tim Paine's captaincy that record chase doesnt happen as Stokes was absolutely plumb lbw in front off Lyon but not given by Wilson and Paine had absolutely wasted our last review!

India's batting and then bowling was poor over the last two days and that's where the door was kicked wide open for England - I see India was also docked 2 points for over rates as well which hurts them as well
The Dukes balls are getting badly out of shape quite early and they're saying entire batches are faulty from manufacture over there
We had the same problem with our Kookaburras a while back
