...well that was woeful, bowled out by a retired cricketer
One boundary in the last 8 overs.
Although I can't say I'm surprised with a middle order as useless as Bopara, Patel and Wright.
Samit Patel is absolutely woeful.
Its only hit and giggle
What is the point in Luke Wright?
Far better off playing someone who can actually do something with either bat or ball. He does neither
That Lakmal must have the rattiest mullet in world cricket- SL should be deducted some runs because of it.
exactly. Wright ahead of Bell is frankly absurd
oh aye I forgot Bell is such a wonderful one day player not the same Bell who gets to 20 then gets out every game playing a soft shot
Mustard should be playing. Patel, Lumb and Wright are fuckin' shite. Dernbach looked miles away from being good enough. Bopara doesn't have the bottle to play international cricket and Broad just bangs it in halfway down thesedays and hopes for the best.
Swann, Morgan and KP are the only ones in that side that I have any faith in.
Broad is debatable and Woakes shows glimpses.
Mustard, Bell, Hales Onions, Shahzad, Taylor, Hildreth and a few others would all be better options than some of those knackers.
Luke Wright is fucking shite.
Average county player at best.
Atherton is right when he said Woakes is too friendly to open the bowling.
I wonder if England will get left behind in 20/20 Intl cricket due to our players bar one or two not playing IPL which is comfortably the best limited overs competition in world cricket bar none.
Woakes is too slow and is just another Jimmy Anderson but slower
Give up man. Woakes is million miles away from Jimmy Anderson.
typical english green top seamer, who struggles on flat wickets
Pietersen and Morgan played very well and seem like the only ones who understand the shorter format when it comes to batting.
The running between the wickets was poor today, especially from fatty.
Lets not forget though that in the bat around the park versions of the game the Sri Lankans are a very good outfit.
Who cares if we do? For the vast majority of true cricket fans, being there or thereabouts in test cricket is all that matters. These games are nothing more than a warm up for the tests against India and a chance for some of the younger/fringe players to play some international cricket.
dunno the agenda is with anderson but you keep making yaself look like a tatie. i dont particular rate him in the shorter versions of the game but at test level he is quality. yes he will be better in certain conditions, just like every other bolwer is ffs.
all correct, regardless of what EB will come back with (which will no doubt be summat about how many countries dont care about test cricket anymore).
EB will come back with this.....
Test cricket is the better format and is the one I would rather watch but considering we play more domestic cricket than anyone else I would ask questions why we are in the main so poor in one day cricket
i wouldnt have a clue either. my guess, and its just a guess, is that we dont have enough good death bowlers and attacking doesnt come natural to most english players, still.
however, i suppose it doesnt bother me cos out of all formats the ODI is the one i wouldnt care less about if they decided to scrap it tomorrow.
I would say it is because one day cricket is a batsmans game and pretty much every country play on flatwickets whereas we play on wickets 'which do a bit if you put it in the right spot'.
