      Can only play one way. This bat second and a shot a ball gameplan won't work all the time

      The sh*te summer weather has meant the pitches are not cut out for it sadly.

      Butler falls with another bad shot. England could win this without hitting a 6. If they want to hit 6s then they have to play them with conviction. 2 flicks to the boundary rope now. Morgan and Butler.

      Doesn't make that much difference really.. more to the outfield

      The pitches are being prepared by the ICC groundsmen who are preparing slower, two paced tracks with more in them.
      We have played on flat roads here in England over the last few years prepared by our own groundsmen but for icc events they send their own

      Get alex hales back so he can get the team stoned against india

      No chance

      He's only batted once in the last 3 months as well


      Brain dead though our lot. Can't understand this insistence of bowling first and chasing when it's not working

      Cant help thinking this isn't down to the players they hit peak form after a couple of games and they already look flat whilst others can be seen visibly hitting form now.
      I want England to do well but Cricket is a game that is great for the neutral every game is worth watching now.

      They've been found out. Not much to do with peaking early. They lost their second game of the wc

      There is a slight sense that England seem to have lost the ability to build an innings.There is obviously a lot more to the 50 over version than bish bash bosh. Playing 20/20 type cricket might work against the lesser teams but tying to lash sixes way to early in an innings against top quality bowlers and fielders is taking to many risks.

      India next up will need some clear thinking.Kohli plays this form of cricket with timely patience. England whether batting first or second have to show proper controlled aggression.All is not lost and England can turn it round.

      Getting interesting for the top four now. Pakistan with two very winnable games meaning England might need to beat both New Zealand and India to go through. Can't rule Sri Lanka out either.

      Apparently a flat wicket at Edgbaston so it should suit England.

      Parr score for England. That short boundary is ridiculous and if any of Indias top 5 get in then any score is possible.

      Morgan needs to sort his head out. Rotating the strike would be a f**king big help for him rather than block block catcher.

      Jasprit Bumrah is immense at the death. Hard not to laugh at Plunketts dopey face as he was swinging like a rusty gate and missing by a foot every time ;D.

      England so much better with Roy back in for the idiot Vince.

      A very good win by England but very limp from India at the end.
