ENG V SA ODI series
« on: May 24, 2017, 09:30:43 AM »

Any thoughts on this one starting today - it's rather crept up on me and seems a little low key.

I expect the Saffers to prove a pretty tough test, and it will be a job for us to keep their ferocious batting in check. I suspect it will suit us to chase down their totals.

Does our team pick itself, no likely surprises?

Perhaps a weakness for SA is their back up seam bowling?

SA win toss and prefer to chase! They are No1 ODI at the moment so will be an interesting match!
I would love to see England do well but anything is possible with AB playing!
Entertaining it should be  ;)

Plukett in good selection on that pitch but no room for Bairstow.

don't underestimate Amla thou.  AB is out of this world no qurstion.

but you would have to go back quite a long way to see someone hit the ball so beautifully and destructively from a slight build and with a light bat.

Actually reminds me a bit of Azuruddin....

I could be proved wrong but still not sure why England would play Ali and Rashid unless the wicket is expected to turn? Hey-ho!

And Amla is one of my fave batsman to watch so would never underestimate! De Kock is capable of magic too!

I still think that the following would be even stronger!
JJ Roy, AD Hales, JE Root, EJG Morgan*, Bairstow, BA Stokes, JC Buttler, MM Ali (or Rashid), CR Woakes, LE Plunkett, MA Wood

Still gives you Wood, Plunkett, Stokes and Woakes for pace, then Ali and Root to spin it! And the batting looks even stronger now!
Just my opinion.

id have PH's team above. one spinner, Root to fill in. Bairstow plays from my armchair selection.

anyone who caught a radio interview the other day perhaps noticed , as I did, Bairstow not shy of an opinion and 'not the number 1 popular person in the dressing room'......now without 2 and 2 making 5 it did make me think slightly.  :)
