Root will no doubt be in the team too, so your've got a decent sixth bowling option there.
    Considering he took 4fer and bowled well today, odd game to brand Woakes bits and pieces. Rankin/Finn in for the other two would be the best bet.

    Root shouldn't be in the team, he isn't a good ODI bat.

Trouble is our attack weren't able to make as good use of them as India have been. Bottom line is we're going to be 2nd rate whoever we pick in this format. Which is why I got in trouble the other day for suggesting that's there's no point in Anderson playing in anything other than test matches nowadays, He'll usually go for plenty, we'll lose anyway, and he'll be completely buggered by the time we need him next summer.
    If you can't even contemplate chasing 300 on a small ground on a pretty placid pitch then just give up. The bowling is ****e, but its ODI cricket - chasing scores is the name of the game.

    Yeah, it's fairly obvious now (always was though tbf) that our ODI side going forward is incredibly reliant on Finn. With Jimmy, Broad, Finn, Tredders + one of the "bit's and pieces" players (Woakes or Ali for mine depending on conditions) I reckon that's a pretty sound attack.

    Don't mind them ****ing about a bit now while Broad is out and trying some different combinations........but I really hope they get Finn in early in this series and see how he goes. It is becoming obvious that Jordan and Stokes are just too risky to gamble with atm.........the pair of them were Dernbach like in their ****ness last night (and that's probably harsh on Jade tbf)

    And, you know, give Bopara back the place that's rightfully his.

    Not even joking.

    We're starting to sound like Cricinfo, but at least we've got solid reasons behind us wanting Ravi back.

    I'm going to take a wild guess that that means "Revenge".

    I know you guys have been joking about this revenge thing, but in reality none of us Indian fans here think of ODI wins as revenge, so it is bit pointless.

    Talking about Indian fans I was quite amused watching last night.........they must have had a big turn out in Cardiff because they made a lot of noise the whole game, but all their songs were very typically English, and I got to wondering how many of them have probably never even been to India?

    Says a lot about the motherland that you can't even get people born in the UK to support yourself I mean, if there was a match in Scotland right now, support for India would be off the charts
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.
