Took it further than we thought to the penultimate ball, but there we go. England's weak bowling attack shown up again. Woakes is poor, Broad needs a streak soon or else his confidence will go and he will become a liability. Ali/Tredwell are just 'holding' spinners. Good test side, poor ODI.
Thankfully once all this ODI shit is out of the way, we can return to test cricket. HUGE test year for England 2015. 3 in the Windies, 2 at home to New Zealand, 5 at home to Australia and then 4 tests in South Africa for our winter tour! Busy times.
I've been watching it a bit Dave. Quite like the quicker format, the big crowds/grounds of Australia. Very fitting that Brett Lee will be in the BB final as of this morning, a nice way to end a brillant career would be for him to take wickets/score the winning runs to win the trophy.
Decent win, but we made it tough on an iffy wicket. Worryingly the top order either clicks and scores massively or we end up for 50/4 and not much in between. We will need to improve in order to beat the Aussies, or do anything in the WC. However, we are a better side than we were 6 months ago and you get the feeling with Ali at the top, no Cook, Taylor, Root, Buttler etc then we will start scoring 300+ quite often. I think there is promise there.
