Without the keeping workload he's looked a lot more assured as a batsman. First innings was a shocker though, terrible way to be dismissed in that situation that early on. Redeemed himself in second dig though, backed his eye in and didn't make many mistakes.Where have all the Wade-haters gone with their he-failed-before-he's-only a-T20-bully scorn? His timely 110 was just what the team needed and more than justified his selection. It was not an easy wicket to bat on. Woakes of all people was their top-scorer in the second dig. CAN bowl (got Smith with a beauty), CAN bat.
If they drop Bancroft, they'll have to drop Warner as well. Doubt it, but if Bancroft fails at Lord's, he'll go.
Honestly, Bancroft looked out of touch and miserable in Edgbaston.
