Honestly not sure

I'm a big fan of butler but he is in the sewag mood where comes off 1 in 4 but that 1 in 4 wins you the game

But bairstow just seems to give you something every game

Too early to think of dropping him but I like consistency and the ninja has that

I don't think he's inconsistent at all, he's not in the best form at the minute but I think when he's in nick he's a very consistent player and he can play any tempo you need him too as well

YJB has to be in - but Buttler should stay as keeper.  For the next few months we don't need six bowlers with two spinners, so drop Ali.  Then it just becomes a toss up between Hales and Billings in one of these two lines ups:

Roy
Root
Bairstow
Morgan
Buttler
Stokes
Billings
Woakes
Rashid
Plunkett
Willey

or:
Hales
Roy
Root
Morgan
Bairstow
Buttler
Stokes
Woakes
Rashid
Plunkett
Willey

Credit to Morgan here, very much the glue behind the innings, just grafting away

Typical Yorkie trying shoehorn Bairstow in at the detriment of the side. There's no merit to shoehorning Bairstow in above either Buttler or Stokes. If he replaces Ali, Bairstow goes at 7.

I'm still thinking they need to be getting up to 280 here

Having been quite critical of Morgan in recent months I am delighted to see this knock from skip, he's played some wonderful shots and a few of the delicate dinks we all came to love him for

Maybe pressure of test captain in the side could spur him on?

With the experience he's got (around 170 odi's I think?) I don't think he's going to worry too much about something like that

I really thought that was a class knock from Morgan - it didnt look like the easiest surface to bat on. Reigned himself in a couple of times when wickets fell but always had the big shot in his locker when the rate was dropping. Top effort from the senior batsman and skipper.

Yep good total from us. Mores either gets runs or nowt. Think we take that every time cos a ton is a ton that can win a game.


Rooty is having a bowl hopefully Felix don't put the mockers on him and he goes off with a back injury

Just kidding Felix  :)
