The ECB also announce that by 2025 it is hoped that county championship matches will be reduced to 150 mins per innings.

Durham are left to wonder how on earth they will find a way to double the length of their current average innings

The selectors explain they are trying to get the one day players in the Test team and play their same attacking cricket. We want to be 200/2 at lunch.
Team for the 2nd Test - Hales Roy Root Malan Bairstow Stokes Buttler Woakes Rashid Plunkett Willey. 2nd Test last two and a half days.
