    Certainly not the main problem but poor bowling contributed at Cardiff, being bowled out in the first two sessions was obviously the reason they lost the last match but they did bowl pretty badly that day as well. Basically Australia have bowled notably worse than England in the two games that they have lost, that does not stop the batting being the main issue but it has played its part.

    This. Both sides of the wicket and inconsistent length. Aggravating.

    Don't think Australia have had a wicketless session

    Bowling has been fine all things considered. It's not like you have Steyn on the bench
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    I'm not advocating dropping Starc, mainly due to a lack of options (if Patto was fit I'd pick him in a heartbeat though) but to say that there's been few problems in the bowling is disingenuous.

    Edgbaston is a nice stadium and my seats had a great view. Probably not a bad seat in the house. Crowd had great atmosphere the whole 2 days I went. I thought the MJ stick went a little past ribbing to something meaner IMO but he didn't respond to it. I say this because some fans near me were genuinely ecstatic if he went for 4, bowled a bad ball or misfielded.

    There was a lot of people returning to their seats during overs. It was priceless when my American wife told them off for not knowing better.

    Yeah that is a ****ing annoying issue that I've come across a lot, domestic T20s are terrible for it. I swear some people watch about 6 overs.
