    Well played Broady. Heroic captains innings to get us over the line when the serial bottler was trying to throw it away.

    Should try to get some more actual batsmen in the team though. When your best one-day batsmen are out injured or not on tour, filling in the gaps with whoever helped to put the cones out might not work
    These games are also nice timing. Everything east of us is just too early for me (even the South Africa series) so it's nice to be able to have some cricket on a sunday or weekday afternoon and evening; it's pretty rare.

    Weird stuff.

    Pleased we won, but boy, our batting looks as fragile as a ming vase held by a Parkinson's patient, doesn't it?

    the misunderstood genius wins it for england
    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

    Our batting just isn't playing tbh. Hales and Morgan crocked, Cook cbf, Bell stuck in check in, Trott getting his **** together at home and KP is KP. At least 4 of those would be in the team on merit

    most of those dudes are way out of form so I'm not sure it's a particularly good excuse.

    Think there's a good enough ODI lineup there, just that the order is a bit backwards.

    They're basically playing their T20 side for match practice, aren't they?
