Stokes gave ENG the total they needed to defend but a session to much time was lost.
The draw was never really in doubt, the odd palpitation being therapeutic.

The series is played between two pretty average sides; the pitches so far aren't conducive to batting but they are dry and not offering (generally) much bounce or lateral movement, the bowling is sound, the fielding is sub-par, the umpiring reprehensible and the batting is shite.

Which doesn't mean it's not absorbing Test cricket.
