Are we thinking that Archer is now nailed on already for a WC spot as he isn't playing today. Surely if they were unsure they would want him playing all of the games etc... especially as he was rested for the last one and the the 1st ODI was a wash out.

I think you are spot on decision already made.

Don't forget that Wood hasn't played yet either. Is he definitely in due to that?

Stokes' bowling has gone downhill after his injuries.

Wood tipped to play next match and probably match 5.

I really don't get what Denly's role in this squad is? I mean he is playing today for Rashid so as the 2nd spinner (as he is down to bat at 7) but Morgan only gives him 1 over!

So if Morgan doesn't think he can do the job of the 3rd/back up spinner, then surely Dawson should be playing?

I don't think Stokes is the same player in both formats since the Bristol incident.

His personality is what makes him the competitor he is, maybe if it's not full on it affects his performances.

He would not be the first sportsman to be like that.

I think we have seen the best of him myself. Terrific player and a game changer

Hope I'm wrong thou.

Stokes has had a number of injuries too lets not forget. Time off from playing plus still not looking fully fit isn't a great recipe for form. I guess on top of that too he seems determined to make more of an impact in the longer form which has affected the shorter formats.

Well that was easy.

And without our best Isi batsmen.




Woakes took 4 on the worlds flattest pitch ever. Anyone wanting to tell us what he did wrong today?

Interesting Morgan saying that Wood should be ready for the next ODI in Trent Bridge and with Archer not playing the last 2 you would think he would be back.

So an attack with Wood and Archer could be fun.

Ridiculous boundary at Trent Bridge shocker



I'm no expert but surely can't conform to the regulations?!

Ridiculous boundary at Trent Bridge shocker



I'm no expert but surely can't conform to the regulations?!

The ICC ODI boundary regulations below -

19.1.3 The aim shall be to maximize the size of the playing area at each venue. With respect to the size of the boundaries, no boundary shall be longer than 90 yards (82.29 meters), and no boundary should be shorter than 65 yards (59.43 metres) from the centre of the pitch to be used.

19.1.4 At all times, there must be 3 yards (2.74 meters) from the boundary rope to the first solid object (advertising boards/LEDs, photographers, cameramen, dug outs, covers, perimeter fence) for the players safety run off.

19.1.5 If the boundary is positioned less than 90 yards (82.29 meters) from the centre of the pitch, the boundary rope cannot be set at a distance of more than 10 yards (9.14 meters) from the perimeter fence. The 10 yards shall be inclusive of the 3 yards (2.74 meters) provided for the players safety run off.

Is that 60m????

Had a look on Google maps and make it almost exactly 60m, which I'm guessing is not a coincidence.

Not quite sure why Buttler's elected to bowl first either...

I think they are just really using these are tests for everyone and want to see how everyone goes in all the situations etc....
