Cricket: England v. Pakistan day one

I can’t make my usual complaint that it always rains wherever cricket is on and never here, because we did have some rain here overnight, at last. Watching the highlights of Pakistan’s first innings I really enjoyed seeing Babar Azam bat. What a stylish player! As is the Irish batsman (I can’t get my head around ‘batter’), Campher, whom we saw in that one day series. I’m all for batting that is a pleasure to watch. Steve Smith may get a lot of runs but I can hardly bear to watch him fidgeting about.

Query. Why is Woakes appreciated so much more by various overseas commentators than he is by his own captain? His bowling is so accurate, time after time.
