Ian Bell's 100th test.

Alistair Cook "Something needs to be done because for three years as England captain I have been criticised".
BBC's Jonathan Agnew "Do you think it's personal?"
Cook "I think it is, yes."

Captain Cook has cracked. Brickbats (and bouquets) come with the territory. Shane Warne (best spin bowler I've ever seen) has as much right as anyone else to give an opinion, and calling Cook's tactics "boring" is hardly a violent attack. If Warne puts on Twitter "Leaving Sri Lanka to get 390 in 90 overs? PLEASE!" then I think most of us can see where he's coming from. I suspect now that Cook has just made things far worse - all defensive fields or a lack of imagination will be scrutinized even more thoroughly.

Weather seems OK for Headingley for the weekend, Monday's early forecast is mixed.

and I still got a free £100 bet which will be on either Columbia or Cote D'Ivoire!

Brief comparison of England's last three coaches' home test defeats:

Duncan Fletcher 1 defeat vs Aus 2001 (who to be fair were a pretty good team) out of 14 home series
Andy Flower 1 defeat vs SA 2012 (not as good as Aus 2001, but still a good team) out of 10 home series
Peter Moores 3 defeats vs India 2007, SA 2008 and SL 2014 out of 5 home series

Good chance Moores will reach 4 out of 6 before the end of the Summer
