Eng/SL on iPad, Aus/SA on work computer screen number 1. Work on work screen number 2.

Starc's bowling rapid - his quickest ever opening spell based on average speed. Markam just dispatched a 94mph bouncer into the crowd :wub:

I expected the spinners to be a little more effective than this but I suppose the pitch isn't offering as much as it traditionally has.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

So how many do you reckon he needs to become England’s first choice spinner who doesn’t bat up the order?

What I would like to see happen is for Leach to replace Rashid in the team in home conditions. Rashid doesn’t tend to dismiss top-order batsmen (aside from Virat Kohli :lol: ) but Leach I feel can, just like Moeen does, plus he’s left-arm and it still allows Moeen to keep the “second spinner” tag.

Yes I think that works for me. Feel bad for Rashid who’s been messed around a bit, but his average has just crested 40.

I don't feel as if he's done anything wrong, but this match is the perfect example. He is the least effective of the spinners in conditions that should help him the most. There's just little point of including him.

I mean, OBVIOUSLY as I'm typing this he takes a wicket. Of course he does.

I'd strongly consider giving Jimmy the new ball from one end and have the ball dive in toward the stumps for a few overs.

Not necessary.

Well, I can safely say I didn’t see this coming at the start of the match.

Miller needs to start farming the strike in the Aus/RSA ODI.

Fair to say this isn’t going overly well.

This is strawberry floating shite. I mean if we don't make 200 then I give us a 10% chance of winning at best.
