    It must be hard being an umpire when he's playing. Everytime he walks past you, you miss the next 5 overs.

    Roy's opening partner for the ODIs decided right here imo, Bairstow v Billings.

    Billings out, so Bairstow gets a score and he should be in really.

    Just checked his stats. Guy has spectacular stats as a bowler. 125 wickets in 41 innings at an avg of 24.

    I bet most of those wickets are of frustrated batsmen who realize that they can no longer score runs with the straight drive. Cornwall so big.

    That's got a lot to do with the WI domestic scene being very spin friendly

    Yeah as much a batsman as bowler, with those figures in West Indies domestic cricket. They have almost no batsmen who average higher 30 and specialist finger spinners generally take their wickets in the teens. Cornwall has one of only four list A hundreds in the entire top seven.

    Edit: Nikita Miller's domestic season averages are usually used for this fact - since 2009 they are 12, 10, 10, 8, 25, 14, 16, 13

    england gonna lose looks like. 7 down and ball injured. Our spin bowling looking more and more terrible by the day. I've been watching a bit and their spinners are better than ours. We've got moeen who never takes wickets even in favourable conditions, and rashid with 3 shorts balls an over. Their spinners more control and more variation. It's getting embarrassing. The batting hasn't been much better tbh.

    Card suggests it's a dog's ear of a pitch which doesn't reflect well on our spin bowling, no. Rashid at least making a fist of things with the bat, sent in ahead of Plunkett which is a bit different in this format.

    edit: highlights shows two drops. One that could have ended the big 6th wicket stand, from Moeen, who is having a very bad day. Other a curious woodlouse impression.

    9 needed from 12 balls with two (really one) wicket left. Woakes 40*. Nice finish

    Yeah and Woakes takes it home. Not the first time he's arrested a collapse. Took wickets too.

    Feels like it's been a little while since Buttler got a score
