    Tricky Tredders apparently not tricky enough any more? Getting punted is one thing, it happens, but being milked for seven an over with no risks at all is probably more worrying.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Yup, they've taken a shine to Tred's bowling, no mistake. A RR of 6.7 an over in this situation is pretty hopeless really.

    Giles' strategy of only playing two full time quicks is looking horrible. Didn't we have some success playing a more balanced attack not so long ago?

    He's looked way out of his depth in this series, albeit all one and a bit games of it. Any theories what's happened after he did more than reasonably in his previous outings at this level?

    I think, shorn of Anderson, Broad and Bresnan the cupboard's a wee bit bare, seam-wise.

    That said, it does ask the question why Jordan and Overton are in the squad if Gilo doesn't much fancy them.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Oooo. Shocking cross-bat shot from Voges to end a very promising partnership.

    Kept a bit low, but no need for it at this stage, surely?

    As funny as it sounds, Matt Wade actually not a bad man for a crisis

    oh hey wade gets to bat before the game is all but lost or when there's little time left
    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

    Unless that crisis somehow demands he catch a ball, obvz.

    Srs tho, surprised his ODI record is as modest as it is. Averaging <22 at a slowish strike rate.

    Well quite. I can only think that he prefers at least one of the quicks to be able to hold a bat with some confidence, so Jordan and Overton are only there as cover if Finn or Rankin gets injured. But going in with this sort of attack is just asking for trouble, and i don't remember a bowler who can bat a bit doing anything significant runs-wise very often, so we're really better off finding someone reasonable from the counties. Surely there's someone out there?

    Good wicket for Ravi there btw. I think this is the stage where batsmen tend to fancy their chances against him. A a 6th bowler, he's an asset. Less so as the 5th one.

    Hard to say. There's been some low scoring matches here, but IIRC there was one match in the CL where both sides posted 300+.

    fwiw I think Aus are looking set for something pretty competitive here.
