JOE ROOT THE FRONTLINE BOWLER

Marsh played a horrible shot but the ball to Warner was an absolute peach. Big fan of England developing quality batsmen who bowl dirty spin, Dan Lawrence being the next  candidate.

Morgan has developed into a very very good captain who can read bowling changes.

I think we are lucky to have him myself and glad we have
Yeah, hes brilliant isnt he, not sure well really see just how good he is until hes gone.

Hopefully he will last until the next World Cup but agree it will be some job replacing him as captain, got a super side these days and I think his positive mindset that he has always had, has worked wonders for this side and the new and emerging players seem to come in a play with freedom.

If only he could play test match cricket as well as worth his place as a captain and tactical qualities let alone his batting

I guess youd call it brave if hes got a wicket, but I think most people would have chopped him an over ago, but then see the comments above, theres a reason Im not England captain and its not just my batting!

Rashid bowling the final over was probably one of the worst things he's ever done. Shocking.

If it comes off it's a great call, if it doesn't it's not - That's how top level sport works and Morgan is a superb captain with a great knowledge of the game. I'll take his opinion over yours.

Thought the Aussies batted very well chasing down an above par score. England did brilliantly to get to over 300 from 0-2 and Bairstow played superbly well with great support from Woakes.

Carey played well after getting a second chance, and Maxwell played the sort of innings that he should be playing more regularly. I was shocked to see he'd only scored one ODI ton before tonight, the guy's got loads of ability - he backed it tonight with a bit of nous I think.

Another great series, we've been treated to some great cricket this summer all things considering!

A spinner who's gone at almost 9 vs a very good death bowler who's excelled with pace off the ball. Just baffled by why he turned to him. Archer's no ball and Buttler's drop off that nick also proving costly.

Genuinely gutted we lost that

I'm seeing it from the point that we've been very lucky to see some great cricket this year despite all the stuff that's going on in the world. Sh it happens.

I also would have gone curran for the final over. Starc was always going to swing hard and with the extra flight and a short boundary one side he had half a chance against Rashid. Not sure he would have been able to get currans back of a length mix ups away so easily.

But being honest it was australias to lose whoever bowled at the death after that huge partnership. Could've done with a middle overs strike bowler. Used to have a fella called plunkett who won us the world cup.

I dont blame Morgan, best captain ive seen in an England shirt on and off the pitch and the messiah as far as white ball cricket goes.

Having Stokes available again would add a bit more balance to the ODI team I reckon. Roy is also horribly out of form and he was a huge factor in the rise to number one.

I wonder if it was a calculated risk to mix up the death bowling from an experience and future planning point of view which seems to be the buzz words this Summer

On the flip side it was also a spinner whod tied the Aussies in knots all of both series and whod just taken the wicket of a set batsman vs a quick who would have to come on and bowl a one over spell when potentially not fully warmed up.

I was debating this with a friend and we had a look back and I see Roy's performance more of a reflection of the problem of root and JB struggling to score.

In match 1, they were 7 off 25 balls when Roy went out to a brilliant one-hand c&b by Hazlewood.  Somebody had to put the foot down.  Hazlewood got lucky.
In match 2, he got run out by Root who was desperate for a single off the last ball after an over of dots.  At that time, Roy had scored 21 from 22 balls.  Bairstow and Root combined had scored 2 runs from 20 balls (yep!).  He looked like the only top order batsmen who could play Australia that day. 
In match 3, he got a dot.

I noticed his partner JB finished top of the series scoring charts - but with an avg. S/R of 81.  In contrast his career ODI S/R is 103 so he was definitely off the boil even though his test innings got him the runs.  I don't think you can see Roy's failure as an individual failure.

Roy hasn't really had a successful series since the WC though if I'm remembering right? Anyone can have a few bad games and I'm not suggesting that he is the sole cause of England losing the series but he's been so good in the past that I think it would be daft to suggest that an in-form Roy isn't a big miss for England.
