    Bit of a left-field pick, but Rory Burns? Malan?

    I hesitated over Broad, but with Stokes, Woakes and Curran all in the mix I'm not sure he is. His use of reviews doesn't inspire confidence in his captaincy potential.

    Buttler is the vice captain for this series so he's evidently next cab on the rank.

    Malan is Middlesex captain this season which at least counts as some relevant experience.

    Broad should not be let near the captaincy as he'd waste the reviews on himself and set fields for bad balls.

    This is a very respectable effort by these two. Footholds are coming more and more into play for Ashwin though.

    Nasty bit of irregular bounce from Bumrah to Stokes just then. Well played by Stokes.

    Stokes and Buttler have seen off more deliveries than the four guys before them combined.

    Kohli has just blown a review that the wicketkeeper apparently wasn't keen on.

    Hint of reverse swing from Shami.

    Yeah, and as the graphic shows, the remaining batters only seem capable of facing about 22 balls between them.

    No pressure lads.

    Good bit of analysis by Michael Holding just then, suggesting that the keeper hasn't got the hang of the conditions yet and is instinctively moving down leg side too much. He did that on the dropped catch. Would have been a much easier chance if he hadn't. Holding contrasted this with some old footage of Matt Prior, who was comfortable taking the ball away from his body on the legside so didn't move too far to leg.

    It's interesting that the two batsman who've played best in this situation are the two most dynamic one-day style players. Reminds me of when Botham batted for ages to help save a test v Pakistan (in partnership with Gatting).
