    Now at the risk of being flamed by one current contributor, that wasn't smart batting. Surely you see off Lee and take your chances against Watson et al? And we've probably thrown away 20 runs or so with that one shot.

    Great knock though. Hopefully made a game of it.

    Well Lee would have a much worse ER than Watson over their careers...

    Only Scaly could fault a number eight batsman with a List A average below 20 coming in with his team in deep trouble and scoring 80 from 76 in a semi final.

    Because it's rank stupidity. England have basically thrown away any chance of getting near 300 by being absolutely ****witted in the last couple of overs.

    Watto's bowling's been awesome in this match, tbf.

    I never realised Bob Willis had the time to make over 13,000 posts on an internet forum...

    Seriously man, we would have probably been bowled out for 150 if Bresnan hadn't played his innings. Where was the complaining when, say, Collingwood got out to an unnecessary attempted hook shot earlier on. Nowhere...

    Come on Jimmeh and Onions here, a mini-reprise of their partnership in the Lord's test would be nice...

    Now that surprises me. Has that changed in recent years?

    Hard blaming Bresnan and Swann for that though. That's why you have those 6, whaddaya call'em, "specialist batsmen" in the team.

    Yeah - and I don't really blame Bres for running on sheer andrenaline at that moment in time. His whole innings defied logic tbf.

    Lol Scaly. How about you stop being so miserable and just appreciate that someone who isn't a very good batsman has just played a blinder.

    Actually, looking it up, they're much the same - which surprises me given Watto has taken slightly less than a wicket a match, and Lee's averages around 2.5 a match, IIRC, and that while Lee has a much better average, Watson's is not terrible. Assumed Watto must be a bit tighter to have a decent average when not taking that many wickets...

    I'm talking out my backside is the short version.
