Slow back of a length deliveries can often be hard to hit at the back end of an innings, particularly considering many have struggled to time the ball when trying to hit on this pitch today.

    This'll be a pretty ordinary score.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Does anyone know some streaming sites? Pay or non-pay, I don't care, just want to watch the game. Willow.tv doesn't have the coverage for this series.

    shocked to see that there may be a chaseable total.

    so batting lineup:

    Guptill
    Watling
    Williamson
    Taylor
    McCullum
    Franklin
    etc etc etc.

    Actually quite like the look of that.

    And that's the problem. Instead of steadily building the run rate over the course of the innings they've left it all for the hitters who have had to come in and hit immediately, which almost never works. The idea of deciding when to "go" is stupid. If you've paced your innings correctly there is no decision required and there is no reason to "go".

    this this this.

    It's why having taylor bat at 6 in the t20 world cup was stupid.

    Indeed. The acceleration was quite sudden. Take it easy for the first 35 overs, then blitz. Funny really how one can go from fearing that the big hitters won't get time at the crease (and even the odd England fan expressing pleasure at Trott getting out) then have the last 5 overs being used by the bowlers.

    Agree in theory but disagree that the English top order did too much wrong in this case. I just don't think England's innings was ever going that badly, I was more poking fun at the idea that they had taken "too long to go".
