    We were always only one wicket away from crumbling.
    You bottled defending 338 in your own country and couldn't even manage to keep us below 28 from the final two overs bowling to our numbers 8, 9 and 10.
    Lol, where did I say we didn't stuff up?

    The bottom of your post is typical cheerleading where if I accuse England of something negative you must respond with an attack on India, but I never denied India choked near the end. And I've given heaps of credit to England in this thread. But when a team calls a powerplay 2 wickets down and then loses 5 wickets for less than 10 runs it's a choke. People can say the word is overused, but that doesn't mean that when it actually happens, it isn't accurate to suggest as much.

Down in Oz when he came back that first game, he bowled really well and looked like he hadn't been away, then he had that bad game where he went for 90 and I just thought it was a one off because he bowled pretty well in the last 2 games. But like you said it's really his death bowling that he's having trouble with and he's not missing by a bit he's way off target. Maybe it would be a idea for him to miss the next match and relax a bit and work on his skills in the nets. I read a article some where, where the writer mentioned, that he thought Jimmy looked emaciated and tbf I think he does.I don't know whether been away from his new born is getting to him but it won't be doing him any favors.
    I think it was after Finn and Anderson got 55 runs of the Aussie bowlers hitting fours and sixes that Watson wanted to target Anderson in the next match.

    Bowling in the batting powerplays

    57.0-0-442-20 (22.10. econ 7.75 s/r 17.10) - Anderson
    54.3-1-439-25 (17.56 econ 8.05 s/r 13.08) - Broad
    23.5-0-191-9 (21.22 econ 8.01 s/r 15.8) - Bresnan

    Anderson's death bowling hasn't been very good lately and as you say he is way off target. He needs to have a break and work on his bowling in the nets as he seems to have no confidence. I think he is also having a problem with his back. It might be better to say he is injured and send him home and bring Tremlett in.

    Strauss has been really consistent for a couple of years and Trott is averaging 52, KP seems to be hitting some form and Bell is inconsistent like you say, but apart from maybe India and SA the same can be said for all the teams, some players are in form and others are trying to find it. The more guys you have in form is all that matters and the further you'll go in this tournament.

    I'll believe KP is hitting form when he actually starts making some half-centuries. He's looked good on far too many occasions, only to get a 20 or 30.

    Jeez.. that was a great game wasn't able to watch it live but really enjoyed the highlights, think both teams can be proud of themselves for producing a game like that and England in particular would take a lot of confidence from this.

    As for India what we all knew is coming true, the batting is shredding the opposition teams but the powederpuff bowling attack in the first two games has gone onto prove that pretty much any target is chaseble against this Indian attack and England's batting effort is something that would give a lot of confidence to the other teams as well when they come up against this Indian side.

    Yeah, and I disagree. With Strauss and Bell batting you were basically one wicket away from our tail which starts at 5 basically.
    Collingwood, Prior and Yardy basically can not be relied upon to score runs.
    Just read back through the thread at the number of people who expected England not to win once Strauss got out.

    At least we haven't lost to Ireland..
