Vaughan has always had gobshite tendencies and has seemed to be even worse since TMS jettisoned Boycott, presumably trying to fill the "professional Yorkshire misery" role. Certainly not one I'm ever pleased to hear on commentary.

And that's leaving aside the Yorkshire racism stuff, which is not great at all.
.

He's only an adopted Yorkshireman. He's from Eccles originally.

He is however a test of the first order and it's a shame TMS continue to use him considering his history.

If some asked me where I was most likely to see someone in a Town shirt, I think the County Ground would be top of the list....

Still trying to figure that comment out myself.

England actually stand a chance here, given their recent history. India blowing reviews left right and centre canít hurt. Apparently Root has had 6 lbw reviews against him this summer and none of them have been successful. Just shows how desperate teams are to get him out. This will be another fun run chase one way or the other!

Next two wickets will be key.

If any combination of Root/Bairstow/Stokes can bat for any length of time England have a decent chance.

I read it as likley being at one of the plethora of cricket County Grounds, so Taunton perhaps?

Rooty passes 50 and Bairstowy is ticking along nicely too (yet another 50!) Ninth biggest run chase in test history in the offing? Bairstowy and Rooty certainly seem to think so

The players don't even seem that surprised by it. Crawley seemed to be saying that once the bowlers did their job the team were perfectly happy with the total they were chasing.

Even if England fail to chase this total (and I think itís ok to say we are now favourites to do so) itís certainly refreshing to see this level of confidence running through the team. The real pudding will be if we can take this newfound confidence overseas
