Post Ashes England Cricket discussion - ODIs and the NZ squads

Post by Dolphin Ziggler on Wed 10 Jan 2018, 9:25 pm

First topic message reminder :

As Olly roundly predicted (and I can tell you, he aggressively told people), England have stormed the Ashes and now move forwards to a one-day series with the Aussies.

Tonight, they name the squad for New Zealand, with Vince expected to keep his place for more convincing knocks, whilst Liam Livingstone is tipped to get the call too.

One day, bookmakers will learn about the game of cricket, and start pricing it correctly.

Until then, however, it’s all gravy...

Well done England!

Too be fair they probably werent banking on the Aussie selectors trolling their own side.

Afternoon everyone. England's ODI side really goes from strength to strength. I think their win yesterday was one of the more impressive ones considering Plunkett's injury, which with Stokes's absence left us very short on bowling. I know people complain about Morgan's batting form, but he's certainly a very astute captain, and has managed his resources extremely well in the three games so far. Buttler's innings was superb, some of the straight sixes he hit were ridiculous.

Australia's ODI side has a balance problem for me. We saw in the second ODI that only picking three bowlers isn't really that viable (England could have chased 50 more with few problems IMO, and that was with Starc on song). However, while Cummins is a good blocker, he doesn't quite have the range of shots for an ODI number 8, and Starc at 8 is a place too high. Their keepers aren't great ODI batsmen either (Paine's effort yesterday particularly gash). This means that if they want to play four out-and-out bowlers as they did yesterday, their batting looks a bit vulnerable. Warner, Finch and Smith are good players, albeit Smith struggled a bit to find the gaps yesterday. Beyond that though? Head, White, Maxwell, etc. all decent enough, but none a top 4-5 bat IMO. Maybe worth considering Handscombe, who's played some decent T20 knocks in the Big Bash.

For England, of course, it's looking quite rosy. Interesting to see who they go with to replace Plunkett, and whether they think about a spot of rotation in the remaining games now the series is won, e.g. Malan and/or Billings into the side, giving the likes of Root or Bairstow a rest. And then there's the question of who Stokes comes in for when/if he's back in contention. Logical step is to leave out Hales, harsh as that may seem. They'd like Moeen to get a few runs though. Got a great ball in the second game, but his innings in the third looked pretty horrible.

Hi MfC - I would expect Tom Curran to replace Plunkett. Morgan was quoted before the first ODI as saying that Curran would play then if we didn't choose two spinners. Unless something has changed out of public view, that puts the Surrey youngster next in line.

I doubt there'll be other changes in the England line up for the next ODI. From comments he's made, my impression is that Morgan's current focus is far more on winning than rest and rotation.

Very much at one with your other points, particularly Australia's ODI side lacking balance.

Hi guildford, I wasn't aware of the comments regarding Curran for the first ODI, but with that in mind I agree that Curran will probably play. I suppose it's possible they may go for Willey for variety, but with only three seamers in the side you really want all three to be comfortable bowling at the death, so that's another tick for Curran. I was impressed by his batting in the Test series, so England won't lose any batting depth over the sub. They will however miss Plunkett's wicket-taking ability in the middle-overs IMO, so important that Wood (who becomes the main option there) is managed well.

Re resting players, it's been announced that Root is being rested for the T20s, so that IMO puts paid to any idea of him being left out for any of the remaining games. Looks like Malan and Billings will have to wait for their opportunity (may come in the T20s of course).

Its going to happen once in a while, and lets face it they will have switched off slightly.

More runs for Woakes but a bit pointless it seems.

And? The purpose remains to get wickets. I think if you check both their stats then Rashid takes his wickets at a better rate but is slightly more expensive than Ali. But taking wickets is the name of the game.

Well ODI cricket and test cricket are completely different. I don't see how someone taking wickets in an ODI, should merit discussion about test cricket.

It will merit discussion about Ali's place in the ODI side once Stokes returns. Do you drop Ali and keep five bowlers, or do you drop Hales/Roy and go back to the 6 bowler formula?

While it's true that ODIs are very different from tests and some good performances in one don't necessarily mean you should be included in the other format, I do think that a serious argument could be made for picking Rashid over Ali in the test team. Seems though for some reason the India tour damaged Rashid's prospects pushing him down the pecking order.

I think Rashid should definitely be in the squad ahead of Crane - for me, not having him in the squad for this winter is easily the worst and most consequential selection decision England have made for Aus/NZ.

Delighted, obviously, to see both Curran boys officially in the England set up Hug . With a combined age seven years more than Cameron White, time is very much on their, and England's, side, even if neither plays much or tears up trees for England later this winter. And they bring the best out of each other, too.

For those who've not seen him much, Sam has serious pace and great variation: ideally suited to both forms of the shorter game. He also can swing the ball sharply and late into right handers (he's a leftie, btw): plenty of lbw shouts. And he's a better bat than his big brother - though Tom's batting's let no-one down this winter. At his best, Sam's almost unplayable. He nearly had a wicket every ball of his second over (a treble-wicket maiden, in any case) in this T20 game last season: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/scorecard/ECKO41233

Chill out a bit Simon! 'Serious pace' and 'nearly unplayable' are taking it a bit too far. He is an exciting talent, but every time I have seen he has been in the low 80s pace wise and I would reserve the nearly unplayable tag to a Mitchell Johnson or Dale Steyn - not Sam Curran.

Has always swung it when I have seen him though, which is crucial. And even in the short term he could be an upgrade on David Willey in the 'swing it back to right handers early on' role - plus being a better bat, as Willey is essentially a walking wicket against International bowlers. Look forward to following his career with interest though, as his ceiling looks much higher than his brothers.

Re. Rashid, is he better than Crane? At the moment, yes. Would picking him in the Ashes squad made a blind bit of difference to the result? No, not really. His biggest problem being he averages 60 bowling in the first or second innings of Tests matches, and he isn't good enough later on the be carried that far. Crucial cog in the ODI side though.

Well one thing is sure. If England choose to stick with Ali as their no 1 spinner for future tours do not expect any tour wins. He is just not up to it and to win in India and Australia you need a spin option capable of taking a good consistent amount of wickets and that ain't Ali.

Sorry jdizzle, fair comment: haven't had the first beer of the weekend yet. Sam C has moments - not yet prolonged periods, granted - where he does hit the exceptional heights I mentioned. That over v Glos was extraordinary. He beat all four top of the order batsmen to whom he bowled that over for sheer pace on a wicket that was, if anything, on the slow side. He might not do it often yet but he does have these moments of genuine 'blimey, where did that come from?!'. Aside from that, he's just very promising - outrageously so for a teenager. Curiously, he's quite a short bloke to bowl fast these days, about 5' 9''. Let's see how he gets on.

I have the strong impression that England wish to reserve Rashid for the limited over caper - at which he is very successful . 
He did take Test wickets in India : but at heavy cost ; and I think the feeling was that he tended to take them too late...not so much when they were needed. Whether or not this is fair I'm not certain. I never had the feeling that he was exactly pressuring the batsmen... But India's batsmen are quite well equipped to deal with his type of bowler - others might be less so .

Ten Tests isn't a huge sample.  Question is now I suppose whether or not he gets another opportunity in Sri Lanka at end of year or whether they will have "moved on ".  Selection of Crane this year might suggest  they have ?

Made a bit of a pig's ear of this...

After that start they must have been looking at 340. Now it looks as if they'll struggle to bat the fifty overs. I know they play that way ; but really Hales , Morgan and Buttler all rather gave their wickets away when they could have been a bit more selective. As for Moeen I really have to wonder why he's playing...there must come a time when you recognize a man just needs a rest.

Also why does Curran bat after Rashid and Willey ? Form is form , surely ?

Root out. Won't last the fifty now and 300 is a distant dream.

Andrew Tye the star for Australia gets a Michelle Pfieffer bowling Ball out. England bowled out for 259 in 47.4 overs.

You feel that is maybe 20 runs short of a tricky target but the pitch does look lively.

All out ...fifty short of what they should have made , I reckon.

As Craig says , there is some life in the deck. But with the forgotten Ball and Willey in for Woakes and Wood I fancy Australia will chase this down pretty easily.

Not sure England have been totally focused since they took a 3-0 lead.

Having no Woakes, Wood or Plunkett in the attack will surely be the straw that broke the camel's back. I would be surprised if Australia don't chase this down around the 45 over mark.

Smith will want some runs today...survived a confident stumping appeal by a whisker and is looking steady enough.
They're in no hurry : as long as they don't lose careless wickets as England did they should run this down without too much trouble. Stoinis has played well. England need two Rashids.
