Caught a bit of the cricket and watched the highlights. It was amazing! While I didn't see any of it, by contrast it sounded like the England football team was dire.

It shows what difference management can make in terms of mindset. Same pool of players completely different outcome. Let's hope the theory/myth of new manager bounce isn't as applicable to cricket as football!

In this match they are also without three of their best fast bowlers in Anderson, Archer and Wood - not to mention Ollie Robinson, who had such a great start last season. All are out injured. We still need a couple of decent, in form openers.

Also note how well Jack Leach has done, having been treated pretty poorly by the previous regime. 10 wickets in the match now he's been treated as first choice spin bowler.
