    Elliott played well and got done by a good ball from a good bowler. He is a serious ODI batsman though imo.

    Taylor though, wtf is he doing? Scores at a completely unacceptable rate and makes no effort to accelerate, then plays a random slog for 6 in the middle? Will this guy ever really have a clue?

    I don't understand it. You're going to slog away in the last 6-7 overs anyway...
    Think they would have if Elliott didn't get out. A shame really.

    The six wasn't completely random, we are getting to the death.

    Certainly knows how to pace an innings. Perhaps it's taught from a young age in South Africa. Always looks unthreatening but manages to score at a strike rate of 80. TBF he does seem to have the knack for edging the balls into gaps at the moment.

    Broom out. That ball didn't bounce at all, but still turned miles.

    Thankfully, now we have Hopkins in to rescue us with his trademark flair, style and panache.
