    Smith doing well here. England bowling a good tight line but he is battling through it.

    where did that come from here
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    My point is more that being remarkably consistent and always getting it in the right area isn't as easy as it might appear. Broad doesn't want to be not causing many problems bowling back of a length rubbish, but getting it on the perfect length all the time isn't that easy. It's what separates the good from the very good.

    That is such a ridiculous shot. Would have looked a complete muppet if he'd edged that.

    Holy ****.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Smith must look so good in the nets at times. Even in the last Ashes series he played a few incredible looking shots that were hammered straight to fielders.

    Yes, thats why my point is that Broad isn't good enough to bowl that perfect back of a length line so he should always err on the full side, but he doesn't. Seems to revert to back of a length.

    Good spell from Woakes this.

    I remember really early on in a few ODIs he made a few 30(20) at the death playing the most absurd shots like those. One-handed ramp-drives over backward point and the like.

    Smith has changed a hell of a lot since the last Ashes in Aus. Fair play to him.

    Do you have a sweepstake on the England run rate for the first 20 overs anywhere on here?
