Buttler's poor run of form continues.

1st ball, 6 off a free hit . Out for 7 trying a ramp shot.

Came in at 220 odd for 2 with 37 overs gone so he had a bit of time to try to develop a bit of form. Instead , 2 consecutive ramp shots, both missed, with the second bowling him.


That is 97 from his last 10 ODI innings. 7,0,14,8,1,0,15,11,10,31.

Keeping him in the side benefits us, so am I bovvered? NO!!!!

EYT ---- Are you employed by the ECB?. Seems no-one has the right on this forum to criticise anything that England or the ECB do without you jumping down on them!!

"That is 97 from his last 10 ODI innings. 7,0,14,8,1,0,15,11,10,31."

That is a total fabrication. Those aren't his last 10 ODI innings at all.

Edit. Just seen your 2nd post. No I'm not employed by the ECB but when you just make up figures I think that needs questioning.

220-2 after 37. You don't want someone coming in taking their time to try find form. It's a team game and Jos played the right way. Unfortunately the execution didn't match his intentions.
Call for TKC..

Yes Joe.

Great hundred.
A one day squad has more than one reserve batsman and Bairstow is undoubtedly capable of being in the squad ahead of any other options not there so don't build your hopes up of seeing him at Headingley in May or June.

I would have put money on Hales and Root batting to team orders and getting out once the ton was completed so others get a chance to bat. Shame none of them seem to want ( or be able) to take advantage of the opportunity given to them.

No doubt Farbrace will blame Root for not going on after making his ton to get 160 whilst overlooking the failures of Buttler, Morgan, Ali....

Agreed Dwight, he doesn't average 37 at a strike rate of 120 by playing himself in and taking time out in the middle.

"How predictably negative."

I am not aware of many negative posts that I have penned but each to their own EYT.

Seeing as there has been much comment about Buttler on here I thought it would be informative to record his latest innings.

On a positive note, well done Joe, looks like Hales and Root are going to stand out from the 'engine room' that's spluttering and hiccoughing along at the moment, for the second game in a row.

still, apologies for pointing out the failings of the untouchables.

Dwight, with the series won one could argue that it was exactly the right time to take a few balls to try and spend a bit of time out in the middle.

Actually he does usually take time to settle in before he explodes. Quite often he is below an SRR of 100 in early stages but his eye and power and all round the wicket hitting zone then see his rate rise.

I'm not slating Buttler as he is a match winner. I'm just missing something that others see when it comes to Billings ahead of Bairstow

Apologies Leg Glance, didn't mean to infer you directly, just a general tone amongst a great number of posters.
