    He can bat 11 for all I care, he should reclaim the opening bowling spot that is rightfully his.

    Would be damn cool but we all know nothing will happen.
    Yeah, Victoria park I think it was. I live about 100m away from it as well.

    I may write a letter to the ICC asking them to remove the batting powerplay. It is too painful for fans to listen to commentators bleating on about how the batting team should take it early rather than waiting for over 36.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd

    Oh c'mon lads I undersood the circumspection, before, but there's Morgan and Buttler to come now with few overs left, just thrash.

    They used to go on and on about it right from the start of the innings. Not so much recently, but it is massively annoying. There is 50 overs ffs, stop focusing on just 5.

    Doubling it after 30 gives 264.

    Morgan and Buttler vs a long ass tail.

    Place your bets.

    It's sad really. I thought it was a really good idea when it was introduced, since the three bowling powerplays were always taken in the first 20 overs. But it just never really took off as an effective tactic for the batting team and is just left to be used when over 36 comes around as if it were a mandatory thing. I wonder if the batting team even think about times when they can take it nowadays.

    Agree, many forget Franklin was actually a good Test bowler in the mid 2000s who genuinely swung it

    Thing is, I do think his slow start played a part to Bell getting out. He'll end up with a decent score at a decent rate, but his slow start was slightly damaging in my eyes.

    Shut yo' mouth, Bell was beaten for pace, nothing he could've done.
