Need to get them out quickly and not let them grab a 50 run lead

This is not test cricket.

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

The only chance England have in this game is Buttler and Stokes hitting 30-40 each in roughly the same number of balls. I think it's more likely they make less than 10 each.

Buttler's at home in England.

Just how many do England need to make a contest of this? 100 run lead?

Yes but at this rate they'll be lucky to have 50 to defend.

Remember when everyone was criticising the best pitch so far of the series?

We’re all just ignoring this and hoping it goes away, right?
