A pitiful showing from England in their second innings and it was no surprise.

You'd think they'd acclimatised to the subcontinent spin by now, so I put it down more to application and patience, which the white ball game has rather drummed out of them all, bar Root.

What about Sibley? Wait, I’ve got the explanation for him... he’s fucking shite :lol:. It shows how bad the options are for openers that he’s playing.

Dazzling stuff at the test world cup final, Kane Williamson has been batting for two hours and ten minutes now....and has scored fourteen runs🥱

Two and a half hours now and he's sprinted on to fifteen.

With the whole England ODI squad to face Pakistan having to be changed due to original squad having to isolate, I'd expect Pakistan to do to us what we just did to Sri Lanka and take us apart.

Will be very interesting to see who they select, Stokes coming in as captain is a positive but there are going to be some unfamiliar names in there.

Decent start, we have them 17-3, but early days.

The fielding in the women’s game has really come on a lot. 

Indeed, that one was just amazing, releases the ball with a split second to spare then leaves the ground to make the catch with even less, can't remember seeing anything comparable in the men's game.

The graphics are what is fucking with my mind the most. 

It's just all round horrible, and pointless. Players and pundits bigging it up at every opportunity but it's shite, difference between it and T20 is twenty balls per side, just why?

Notwithstanding the craziness of the hundred, the Curren brothers are a bit good.

So are the Curran brothers 😛.

I prefer Sam but yeah, they’re both great. Proper competitors that fight for everything.

Well wtf? India were three down and I go off and do a few things then check back on the score hoping we'd maybe got one or two more.....and they're all out😂

Robinson is looking like being a very good replacement for one of Broad and Anderson once they're done. Just need to find another one now.

Looking at the England NZ T20 game score I thought I'd have a look at some stats and found a truly impressive set of results for the Mali wonen's team at the Kwibuka Women's Twenty20 Tournament in 2019.

First game against Rwanda they batted first and scored 6 (five of which were extras). Rwanda took 0.4 overs to win.

Then Tanzania, batted first again a big improvement, scored 11. Again beaten in 0.4 overs.

Third up Uganda who bat first and score 314-2. They manage 10 in reply.

Then Rwanda again, who bat first and post 246-1. Astonishingly they manage to bat out the 20 overs and finish on 30-9.

Tanzania 285-1, Mali 17.

Finally, bat first v Uganda and amass 14, heroically forcing their opponents to use up 1.4 overs in reply.

I think I'll start a fan club!
