    T20 has always been about specialist bowlers.

    This is going beautifully. Sangakkara gone too. The 3 big players are gone, just need to keep the pressure on now.

    Sanga sent back....

    England keeping the RR under a run-a-ball AND taking all big wickets.
    Boring game .

    Dibbly dobbly nothing bowlers have never really been successful in T20, particularly at the highest level.

    Oh then we totally agree, I was just saying that and many critics of the game kept on blathering about it. Counties did use them a lot too at first, James Hildreth bowling for Zummerset was particularly distressing. Anyway this partnership looking a bit dangerous.

    The partnerships might last for a while, but it's still nothing but a run-a-ball. After 16 overs, the RR is 5.75....

    Nasser Hussain made a great point though, the way bats are made these days (lots of weight at the bottom of the bat) makes hitting straight sixes very easy, its harder with these weird bouncers.
