Awful from Root, wafty drive outside the off stump.
I don't get it, Leach made 92 runs leaving anything wide of a 4th stump line. You do that often enough they put one on your body and you tuck it away and get looser and looser. The ball is moving minimally at low speeds, but yet again we're in dire need of our all rounders to pull 80 runs plus from somewhere.
With Buttler, Stokes and Archer coming back into the team, I wonder who will be making way.
Probably Stone (for Archer), Ali (for Stokes) and either Burns or Deny for Butter. Although you could make a case for dropping Bairstow and Woakes.
I think it will be Stokes for Woakes, Buttler for Burns although that would mean Root having to bat at No.3 and Anderson for one of the spinners. Archer could replace Stone but it would be a risk to play both him and Anderson after their injuries. There is also an argument for playing Foakes for Bairstow but I don't think they will do that.
