    Woakes needs to stop with the short stuff. Bowled some decent balls first few overs, keep it pitched up!

    Woakes continuing his ODI form I see, seems to bowl a juicy 4 ball or two in every over.

    Do you think his technique in this regard has changed that much from when he was making some runs a few years back?

    I've started thinking maybe rather than being a new technical thing it's just that the bowlers have started bowling more at the stumps. He frequently smashes balls through mid wicket for four , and plays and misses loads early outside off early. Maybe guys used to bowl a more typical outside off line to try and nick him off and it happened to play into his hands a bit.

    My biggest issue with Watto I think is that for his whole innings, he's never in. He seems to be just as likely to miss a middle stump half volley on 65 as 0, so if you keep bowling middle stump half volleys he'll eventually get out, and much sooner than it should be. Someone like Ponting, even though he was acknowledged as an LBW candidate early, once he got in if you kept bowling there he would destroy you.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Not a good start overall from Woakes, only drew two false shots and given plenty of four balls. Seamer on for me, don't fancy Kerrigan this early against Watson.

    He's always been a super strong front foot player and someone who likes to dominate no question, but I've got a theory that he's just taken it to a new level the last few seasons and almost came out there with a pre meditated plan to hit as many fours as possible in the hope he spreads the field, just like a one day game. This has made him even more on edge and results in a lean. Dunno, just my weird theory on it.

    But yeah no doubt people have figured him out more than they have earlier in his career.
