England in the West indies
« on: February 25, 2017, 05:52:24 PM »

Warm ups going well.

389 for 8 of 50.

Half centuries for Roy, root, morgan and stokes.


Billings only made 14 and with rumours hales is on his way to join them after hand recovery, is the poor lad gonna end up benched again?

Rather have Hales than Billings who Is getting overhyped.

Did average in the BBL with nothing extraordinary.

Had one good innings of note in the PSL aswell.

Even when he had the match winning innings vs India A he was dropped multiple times too.

You can't deny he has ability.. However I believe his position is no higher than 4 in T20 and 5 ( depending on match situation in 50 over cricket.

Think England are wasting/using him at top of the order, they are just hoping the gamble will pay off or waiting for someone to regain fitness.

England for me are trying to re-invent the wheel when picking one day teams. Root is not a T20 player and certain players are not rotating the strike quick enough when we have a plethora or talented batsmen to follow the top 4.

Ah, delayed toss. Pitch looks a bit dangerous.

On another note it's so good to have Bumble back

if that means Billings bats top 3 great.

let's give him a chance

I do think YJB will be in our one day side going forward as well, yes it's a tight fit to get everyone in but he's quality.
