    England did a horrific job of handling Yuvraj in the T20's, and have played Jadeja terribly all series. Was probably worth giving him a couple of overs.

    Just because Jadeja and Yuvraj are the 5th and 6th bowlers, doesn't mean they're going to be the most expensive and the ones we play the best.

    Jadjea 4 overs for 9 runs as I type

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Don't think there was anything wrong in the strategy of bringing on the 6th bowler personally, but after having barely bowled Yuvraj for 2 series now to expect him to straight up come and bowl a couple of tight overs wasn't the best decision.

    Should have maybe brought on Raina who he has used more.

    And Jadeja's good series continues ...

    And here's Eoin Morgan, the 'finisher' who - as the TMS comm has just said, "has been finishing prematurely."

    I don't think his elbow issues are really an injury though are they? More of a thing that has happened him and meant he's not at his best. I'm sure he could continue playing like it is, but England just felt that with the Champions Trophy and double Ashes bill coming they'd be better off if they could try and get him back to his best and examining it. England obviously decided that even with his elbow meaning he isn't as good as he was 18 months ago, that he would still do a better job than Meaker.

    At what point should we get a little twitchy here?

    Ha, leg-side half-volley from Ishant on cue.

    Another tie-break taking priority for me atm. Still got TMS on though.

    No need to worry just yet.

    This has slowly become a fine innings from Bell. He's scored at a run a ball since I had a go at him on 40 off 76.

    Hmm, so Bell has thrown a spanner in the works, if we keep him as opener what happens with KP and Trott. I'd still rather KP opened, but don't see it happening now.

    Agree with that, even though Root has done more to justify his place than Morgan in this series.

    Nah, open with your best aggressive batsman and that's KP for me. Bell has done well today but beforehand he'd had a poor series - we know he's a capable but not all that impressive ODI bat, no more, no less. If there isn't room in the top order for him then so be it.

    Between him and Root for the no.4 berth right now, afaic. No doubt both will get a few chances in the upcoming unimportant ODIs, including in the top three so there's no real need to draw conclusions now, especially not when this series in particular has less meaning than most given where it is.

    There's no way Flower will drop Bell back down the order. And one series isn't enough for Root to replace our best ODI player.

    That being said, I still think Bell is better off trying to smash it at the top of the order, particularly in England.
