England needed that new ball burst, it may have pulled us ahead in the day, but Windies spent the rest of the day building a pretty decent position.

Regarding Warner, I'm an outsider looking in, but it does seem as if he's being set up as the major fall guy for this, and so is unlikely to return. Smith seems a dead cert to return when fit, and I had thought the same off Bancroft, although penultima thule suggests otherwise above, but more because he's not good enough than because he's too tainted.

Is Smith likely to captain again? If be surprised if he got the job back immediately, but maybe in a few years, when Paine goes?
