Woody’s great. The English white ball side with Moeen and Wood in is a treasure.

I've only been able to tune in since the 45th over, but they're really playing with smiles on their faces. Good to see.

Didn't go according to plan there, but thought our bowlers did well and nice for Billings to get a score.

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

I'm sensing a Rashid 5-fer.

Well that was great fun :lol: - based on what I saw on The Test’ and Justin Langer’s facial expressions over the past 90 minutes, I’m slightly concerned that some of the Aussie players may not see another morning. That man honestly terrifies me.

Curious that Jof got MotM, I'd have gone for Woakes.

Apparently the ODI decider is actually tomorrow, not today like I thought. :|

Hrmph.

Nothing to worry about, we're just being good sports and giving them a 2-wicket head start.

I ghost-unmatched someone on Hinge who I was meant to have a date with today so I could watch the full match :lol:

Joke's on me if we get bowled out for under 50 and Aus knock them off before the innings break.

The Starc inswinger to RHB - how are batsmen still getting trapped by this in limited overs cricket? Set yourself between middle and leg, front foot pointing towards mid-off. LBW should then be out of the equation.

Let's hope Jonny and Eoin can post something big.

Super Jonny.

That 6 off Cummins to bring up the century was lush.
