Match #17 - Australia vs England - 8 June

I don’t know that batting is your biggest issue. I think you’ve picked the wrong attack for the conditions. Seems that guys who can mix up their pace and bowl cutters are better served on the decks rolled out so far. Once you’ve got the wrong attack and got for a lot of runs you’re always up against it in a t20. Chasing 200 is never easy, and I don’t know that it was really a 200 pitch. By all reports England mostly bowled woefully.

and tbf a decent number of England fans on here pointed that out before the first game
That's 100% correct.

Our batting is fine - yes Bairstow was poor and Jacks is still finding his way, but our bowling is our weaker discipline.

To add to that, we've picked the wrong attack for the conditions. Curran and Topley should have played over Wood and Jordan.

Pace off the ball was obviously the way to go as Cummins showed so expertly.

It was never in a month of Sundays a 200 pitch.

Burgey's gonna hate Gill even more when he has a 400+ run series in Aus later this year. About the only place outside India (not that he's too flash in India either) where he'll be worth a ****.

I'm not sold honestly. Australian pitches have been REALLY bowler friendly recently, and last time he got dropped a million times. Batted really well in the 4th dig of the 4th test, but was loose outside of that.

Not surprising Wade has been reprimanded with a Level 1 code of conduct over his umpire dead ball argument in this match.

I actually thought he might of got more
