Very Happy

I suppose it doesn't matter much now anyway. Plunkett just got hammered too.

And Jordan up again for his ninth ...he's going to get his century at least...

Saving Stokes for his batting ?

Finn gets Ronchi.

Apart from one over , Finn has done well today.

After all the talk of whether or not Billings would get dropped for Willey I wonder if Jordan could now be looking at the chop instead?

I could see it happen and want to see Willey given a chance but am not sure if replacing Jordan with him is the way to go. I'm starting to feel we need another spinner (I know it's not possible with this squad) in the attack for more control. It isn't a popular suggestion but Tredwell tying up an end would allow for a wrist spinner bowling the odd 4 ball and allow Finn/Plunkett/Wood to attack more supplemented by Stokes and Willey, or Woakes moving forward.

1.Roy
2.Hales
3.Root
4.Morgan
5.Stokes
6.Buttler (wk)
7.Willey
8.Rashid
9.Plunket or Wood
10.Tredwell
11.Finn

That would look a much more balanced side IMO.

Jason Roy gets in purely because Ronchi sits behind the stumps and gives him enough time to get the dive in

Its a decent start but its pushing the required rate up an up. This is the sort of start that a week ago we wouldve been saying was great, in context of this game its decent. Looks like they are picking the rate up now though. And they've stopped giving chances (near run out excepted)

209-4 from 28 overs.

Morgan and Buttler are batting well but will need to still be there when we reach 300 to really give us a shot.

Morgan batting the best in the last 2 years? Ones upon a time, he used to be a wonderful finisher who's name could have been mentioned along with the likes of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Michael Hussey.......

Morgan and Billings go in quick succession, and it looks beyond our reach now

Decent effort, needed another person to really kick on like Morgan did

And it must be said in a game where the going rate is 8 an over, Trent Boult is going at 5's and has picked up some key wickets. Class class bowler

Agreed there Olly.

Two games in a row he's been the best bowler on either side by a distance.

Dangerous opening bowler, economic middle order bowler, partnership breaker and death bowler. It's a very impressive skill set for a modern ODI bowler.

What a moment for it to happen with Plunkett and Rashid batting excellently.

I've already jinxed us once Stella, don't worry I'm keeping quiet!

9 runs behind on duckworth lewis.

I tell you what, win or lose, it's been one hell of a chase and either side would deserve it!

Agreed Olly.

Many could argue that a lot will often rest on the shoulders of Root and Morgan to act as the glue for the innings. However you can just as easily argue that is also the case of NZ with Williamson and Taylor, Australia with Smith and Clarke (Watson could be thrown in there as well).

I still feel we need another bowling option at 7 and a second spinner in the squad to offer options. However it's looking very promising thus far, albeit if only briefly.

Just out of interest as I'm a little in the hammersmith thoughts with regards to mammoth total ODIS. But root appeared to have been bowling pretty economically in comparison to most and managed to get a wicket also. Judging by the stats alone (i've not watched it as i'm at work) he was doing quite well.

Laugh He's a little too feminine for that DJ, although I suppose him mincing down the track would render a fielder unable to field and any bowler unable to bowl at him with any venom.

No kid minces to a sub 11 second 100m time. You realise he's in the top 10 all time junior spinters in SA?

To be fair, in his defence, he only said he would have made it as far as a decent contract in the IPL had he focused on cricket.

Quality boxer in his day too.

these high scoring games.....are not good for the game...looks like Rajkot patta pitches have been imported  Shocked

A good game  needs something in it for the bowlers......where 280 should be a defendable total.

Eng taking their pitches in the wrong direction nope

A fine contest but a stupid slogfest nevertheless. Well, these F-50s might have a lot of takers, but I am not one of them. Hope the godforsaken ICC clowns would soon ratify the rule changes recommended and do something so that we wouldn't have a scenario where in teams play with 11 batsmen. Any tom, Dick and Harry can come and turn his arm over and get smashed for 6, doesn't need any particular skill set as such.
Can't even imagine the kind of torcher in stor for the upcoming India Sri Lanka series.......

you must be new here.......many of us here and across the cricketing forums were very critical of the slog-fest on Rajkot styled patta pitches where even 350 was barely a par score.

and those type of batsman dominated games have significantly diminished interest in ODIs in subcontinent.

I repeat good game where 280 is 50% a defendable score....and except the minnow games..world cup was a perfect example of good pitches that gave bowlers a chance

Let's ignore kp_fans latest rant - he was complaining about home doctored pitches that produced those scores in the champions trophy!

Excellent entertainment again today - Morgan's innings was sublime, unfortunately couldn't quite get home past Boult and Taylor.

Can we just carry on playing New Zealand for the whole summer?
