Not had a great series and it's not like it's not a pace bowlers series. The Pakistan spinners strangled England in the last game, even part timers. Maybe this will be a last tournament then Parkinson or Crane will have to step up. Gleeson is nowhere near good enough. Should be Willey's last series or tournament too. Curran does that job better.Any body else worried by the fact that Rashid has lost the knack of taking wickets and with Willey is becoming a luxury.Gleeson not the answer.We have Wood but who else
Shame about that last over but yeah, really rate him.This has been really good from Topley, others may have picked up the wickets but he's been far the pick.
They got as close as they could've without getting there tbf. Yet again it's an opener who has scored over half the runs. Middle order nowhere to be seen still. Asif Ali is a hack.Will we cross 170 today? Doubtful.
He'd only faced one delivery when you posted this lol .Malan slows the scoring rate.....
I was about to suggest that you won't need to, based on the last couple of games. Then I saw we're 82 for 1 in the middle of the sixth over. Not beyond us to mess it up of course.Will we cross 170 today? Doubtful.
And England fans should rejoice. Our captain is burned out to a pile of embers, while their (former one) is still going strong. Get the feeling our version in the 'Fab Four' is going to retire a lot earlier than theirs is, unless Kane gives away T20 and the captaincy as well.100% Joe Root makes England's best side in any format. Surely it's his call not playing T20i's?
Would suggest that's more to do with the IPL and other stuff that Root doesn't play. This series a big exception, but normally T20s are just a match or too tagged at the end of a One day series he's already travelled too, rather than over a month in India, and other places, same for Kohli and Smith probably. Why Babar and Root are probably the best in the World nowAnd England fans should rejoice. Our captain is burned out to a pile of embers, while their (former one) is still going strong.

Yes when chahcu ifti is your best middle order bat then I guess you are doomedI think this series has given the middle order plenty of chances but they're just not capable of doing anything of note. Hey, Babar pulled off a funky looking scoop adjacent shot in the last over so we're not totally doomed. Just need 2 guys to consistently score 150sr 80s.
