    Bumra, great bowler.

    Not so keen on the name mind.

    Agreed.

    Not just win, but win by a lot and go even further ahead of us on run rate. Still, we fully deserve to crash out in the group stage. Just hope there are consequences

    Surely there has to be a complete rethink about the whole setup.

    The setup really annoys me, across all formats. Seems like there is no accountability, just going out with "hunches" when in the field, and throwing wickets away with the bat "ah well never mind, at least it's entertaining eh, it's just how we play". No. You're playing top level sport for your country, it's embarrassing. Even if you're not embarrassed, those of us who support you are.

    If we don’t get out of the group then the whole deck needs clearing.

    End of.

    No way should we be coming third behind a country where 99.9999999% aren't even aware they have a team. Would be one of the most embarrassing episodes in the history of the game in this country

    After the 50 over tournament humiliation, we brought an ex Windies player into the coaching set up specifically because he would understand the grounds they were playing on. That didn’t work did it?
    Tactics are woeful. Playing all right handlers in the top 5, when they have the best leggie in T20’s and were always going to bowl 2 spinners, on a ground with a short boundary aided by the wind, They realised too late and did move Ali up to 5 but far too late. Why have four t20 openers in the top four, when these are all specialist positions. Buttler has to give up wicket keeping immediately, he’s so out of touch with what’s going on as captain. Getting penalised for slow overrates was schoolboyish, and exasperated the issue of Buttler not having time to talk to his bowlers. It took 6 overs to realise cutters and a shorter length was the way forward, they’d lost the game by then. And bowling Jacks to the short boundary……..you couldn’t make it up.
    Very poor, they have learnt nothing at all from the last tournament debacle.
    I guess we could see it coming with that great team all going past their peak at the same time, but this was shambolic.
    I see Aus play Scotland after we’ve finished our games, so they can engineer between them exactly what they have to do to eliminate us.

    He always looks like that though you could be right this time, he's not getting any younger. Too slow to get going in this format

    Looking a lot brighter but still relying on the weather and the Aussies not to throw the game against Scotland (it's one thing engineering a win by just enough to knock us out but surely even they wouldn't stoop that low to deliberately lose) but we'll see.

    Micky Mouse competition, in Micky Mouse land, governed by Micky Mouse rules, scheduled for the rainy season, by a Micky Mouse governing body.




    I’m not a big fan of the 20 over game.


    We don’t have 5 a side international competitions in football, do we?


    It’s the same ****ing thing.

    one game rained off. not our fault. hardly classifiable as embarrassing.

    phil salt made 87no as england replied to the windies 180/4. after scoring a 6 off the last ball of the 6th over, salt didn't get another boundary until the 16th over, when he scored 464664. that 30 off the over isn't the highest of the tournament. the windies took 36 off an over against afghanistan, but not via the sobers method. nick pooran scored 6, then he got 4 off a no-ball; the next was a wide that reached the boundary, making 5, and the free-hit yorked the batsman, but didn't get him out. So that's 16 off two valid deliveries so far. next was 4 leg byes, and then 4 more for pooran. 24 off 4. two sixes finished the job, so pooran scored 30 and extras added six.

    the highest inidividual score so far is 98 by pooran, who is currently the highest total scorer so far, with 200 in five innings.

    aaron jones (usa) has a 94no and salt's 87no is the 3rd highest so far.

    safrica's quentin de kock looked to be on for a 100 the other day before losing his wicket for 74 in the 13th over against the usa with plenty of time left.

    the best averages so far are 102.0 berrington (scotland), 78.0 stoinis (aus), 70.5 jones (usa), 70.0 mcmullen (scotland), 60.66 gous (usa).
    for england, salt 49.0, bairstow 47.0, and brook has scored 67 without being out yet.
