On the bright side, this partnership has moved England's batting series average slightly above Mitchwash...

This is so exciting. Chase and Brathwaite bowling lollipops after lollipops. But don't worry, the over rate is fine now.
:D

Second 50 of the match for Buttler, and 100 partnership.

I think the part timers have been racing through the last few overstock try and get to the new ball.

Bets on a declaration tonight?

Root only had two hundreds in his last 21 Tests before today.

Averaging 35.

Very poor for such a key player.

He wasted 3 years of incredible form getting out for 50-80

If he was ruthless like Steve Smith or kohli he would average 59 not 49

Even today he played several terrible shots when he was on about 70

He has 16 hundreds he should have 20-24

He really hasn't been helped by how crap the rest of our batsmen are, every game hes in at 30-2 against fresh bowlers

Shannon Gabriel is potentially in trouble for what may have been a homophobic comment.

Sounds like they may have been the type of comments that have been made on cricket fields for many years. But it's good that they are now at least considered inappropriate and the umpire challenged them. Looks like Honest Joe has come across quite well.

Clearly Gabriel has made a homophobic comment towards Root, who brilliant brushed it off with a smart retort. Looks like it's all being brushed under the carpet.

But is it any less serious than if Root had made a racist comment towards Gabriel? Which would probably have ended up with a fine and a ban and pillory across the world.

Touch of double standards going on here methinks

Wonder if it was an Aussie in the Ashes whether more would be made of it.

Not good from Gabriel if all is as it seems.

It would be pretty tragic for the ICC to idly stand by and allow Gabriel to escape punishment if his original words were heard by the umpires. I cant see why a homophobic slur should be treated any different to any other form of abuse, and there are very little homosexual sportspeople who feel comfortable enough to talk about their sexuality; if players can do this and get away with that, it sends the wrong messages for the future. Someone like Rabada got banned for swearing, and a West Indian is currently banned for not bowling quick enough; yet, nothing is being done about this?

Its massively more important considering this test is being played in the only country in the Americas that refused UN recommendations to legislate for anti-homosexuality discrimination. Cricket should be making a stand against the inherent discrimination that exists (I think all the East Caribbean, its illegal to be gay) in this geographical area, not de facto accepting it by allowing it to happen without punishment.

England also have a duty to support LGBT community, and demand adequate punishment for it. Its sad they are so happy to let it be brushed under the carpet.
