Decent platform for England shame Buttler dragged on when he was about to fire.


Looking forward to seeing Jofra.

That's a really commanding win. It should put the likes of India on notice.


Stokes and Archer particularly impressive.

I think the beauty of this England team is that we are not reliant upon 1/ 2 / 3 players, there is quality throughout the squad
Very professional performance today and that catch  :o :o :o
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

Very ordinary performance against poor side who had lost 12 on the bounce.

Shocking fielding performance. The bowlers, despite what the scoreline would suggest, actually weren't all that bad, Trent Bridge is notorious for high scoring matches. Root and Buttler were great with the bat, but we lost the game because of the fielding costing us an extra 20-30 runs and none of the other batsmen stepping up to the plate, if someone else had hit a 50 with those pair performing as they did, we would have won at a canter.

Moeen is completely gone as a batsman currently.

Bottled it again. What is it with England's national teams?

Our bowling and fielding were below the standards they have set in recent months as well

We bowled very badly first up. They've bowled very well.


Now the ball is a bit older Stokes and Buttler look comfortable (touch wood).

Horrible to watch such a talented team bottle it like this. I don't think we've ever had a football team as good as this cricket team yet the result is the same , can't handle pressure.

Woakes bowled a decent spell, could have been fuller though, but Archer and Wood were terrible first up.

The batting continues to leave a lot to be desired. It is all well and good bludgeoning the best part of 400 against Bangladesh and Afghanistan, but that isn't what wins your tournaments.

You’re right, but, as I understand it, run rate can be important in helping us to qualify for the semis if we are tied on points with another country, so I suppose it does help.

Winning is a million miles away mate, we need to get their heads together and win the next two to ensure qualification.
