  • Its been clear since Jonny came back into the side in the india series last summer he had worked on his technique and looked much more put together. He is now seeing the rewards and i really hope it continues. Would love it if we see Jonny the quality test match player of 2016-18 without losing anything in his white ball game.
    And that is very much the point. Some players like Bairstow have the ability to work on their game and adapt. Others like Ballance, Jennings ot Hales either can't or simply refuse to do so.

    Can we make 300?

    Yes
  • Wood gone

    305-9
  • 311 all out

    Bairstow 140
  • What a dependable cricketer Holder is. Excellent catch and returns figures of 21-11-24-2
  • Feels a decent score, but we shall see.

    Well done Bairstow.

    Whereas our opening bowlers have conceded 35 off 7 for no loss
  • The critics before the game said that England's attack looked toothless

    England's pace bowlers have countered by looking toothless
  • In the absence of Anderson and Broad I would have offered the new cherry to our fastest bowler, Wood.

    So would everyone except Root.
    Mind you tbf he's not produced much as yet.

    But he has, at least, hurried them a bit more and the ball wasn't thrown to him 'til it was 7 overs old and 35 runs had been smacked off it
  • Viv still looking very trim. Beefy not so much  :D
  • Gower's spot on with regards to the Windies having an easy release shot down the ground
  • Oh dear. OK give Leach a go but, seriously, why Woakes and not Wood who has still only been given 3 overs and has had his feet up for the last 45 minutes!
  • We are trying to contain rather than attack. It's just so negative but, perhaps, reflectively of the fact that Root simply doesn't trust our bowlers. I'm surprised he doesn't have sweepers both sides, a long on and long off plus, of course, third man and fine leg!
  • Possibly the least threatening attack our selectors could pick.
    Some counties look better than this
  • Trying to bore the batsmen out after only 16 overs is a bit depressing

    Indeed and yet Wood was one of our most threatening bowlers in the Ashes, is the quickest we've got but doesn't get the new ball and is only given 3 of the first 20 overs. We are already down to two slips and a gully and Woakes, Overton and Leach have had two spells each now. It is absolutely baffling unless Wood's injured of course. In which case, he wouldn't be on the pitch anyway.

  • The troll opener is gone. If WI bat anything like decently they'll get at least 450 here though
  • I dont like to be negative but Englands attack so far has been club standard. 
  • In the absence of Anderson and Broad I would have offered the new cherry to our fastest bowler, Wood. 
    Instead we open up with a bowler who's best figures are on home soil with a swinging ball. 

    It's like going to India with 4 quicks & no spinner.

    Bonkers

    When we have 2 quicks with 1200 wickets between them sitting at home.
  • 101-2.

    Brathwaite 55 (70) c Overton b Wood
  • Never underestimate WI's ability to simply throw wickets away when they're on top
  • Did someone mention Wood?

    He was actually bowling too straight and allowing the batsmen to work him off middle and leg but, there again, when he's bowling to a close field of one slip and a gully that is hardly surprising. The lucky bit was the edge going to gully and Overton taking what was a very good catch.


  • The person working the big screen has had too much rum punch.
  • Nelson!

    111-3
