I do hope so. Burns (when fit!) and Denly have shown a bit of grit too so maybe we can develop a bit of stability at the top of the innings for a while.

Surely the writing is on the wall for Anderson

I guess he wants to end his test career this summer in England, he needs 16 for 600

Yes. It catches up with most pace bowlers before they get to 37. One more series might just do 600 but he won't want to keep breaking down during matches.

Some of his spells in Cape Town were sublime, and it would be nice for him to achieve his personal goal. But it's a team game, and if we lose a bowler through 'breakdown' on a regular basis, time for the bar and TV punditry. There is a huge gap to fill after Bob. Jimmy can be almost as miserable on the screen, albeit nowhere near as knowledgable.

I see we're having a mid-order collapse. That's new ?

Yes. But only if we do an "Australia" and stick with the youth giving them time, rather than discarding them after one bad innings

Broad (499) on the verge of 500 tests wickets

Broad is a better bowler now than he was 5 years ago. He deserves to get 500 but I fear the weather may not allow it this week.
