Jake Ball is going to take so many division 2 wickets next season!

Buttler shouldn't be batting as low as 6 in this line up.
Call for TKC..

I thought the England total was good. When Stokes and Buttler are on song, it is almost inevitable that anyone coming after will look plodding, - the England total was still 60+ above par for the ground.

Rashid held his nerve very well, but agree that Buttler was very ordinary behind the stumps. Apart from the dropped catch, he struggled to keep cleanly. I suppose we should factor in the fact that he was captaining his first ODI and doing so in stifling heat. If Buttler is the long term ODI captain, it is probably sensible for him to give up the gloves for Bairstow or Duckett.

Jake Ball's second spell was superb, he looks a really fine bowler. Good Debut for Duckett as well. England's white ball strength in depth seems to keep growing.

Thank goodness Rashid rested up to be ready for today's game.
Not a good start for him.
Let's hope things improve.
Adil Rashid 1- 0 Old Fella

Creampie time ladies and gentlemen

That rest looks to have done him the world of good. Big hand in 5 of the wickets today. I really hope he reads this forum to look at the nonsense of people like this fella.

You are someone that posts on a forum. He's an international class bowler. Let him judge whats best for ADIL

Just in. Picture of Adil after he's seen Old fella's post

Ah hindsight....

Let's remember the timing of his decision at a key moment in our season

Also recall that I posted my comment after he'd taken 0-76 in the warm-up game.
Plus it was made tongue in cheek not that you'd understand irony.
The rest has certainly helped poor old JB.
I wonder how bad his injury is?
Could give a chance to Billings who subbed excellently for him in the field.
Excellent debuts for Ball & Duckett.
Bangladesh did throw it away though when they needed less than a run a ball.

I wonder what that 5 for by Ball does to Plunketts chances for both of England's limited over teams? Plunkett is a solid all round player whose done well for England over the last year but in my view is one of the weaker bowlers with the likes of Willey, Wood, Mills, Jordan, Woakes, Topley and now Ball available across both formats (Mills aside as T20 only).

He may become a back up again which means he's available more for Yorkshire.

In Plunkett's favour is his batting & his occasionally brilliant fielding.
What a catch that was yesterday by Willey.

Funny with Liam, I'm not sure getting him back is that useful. On the right occasion and/or wicket, he can make a real difference, and his batting has often been very valuable. I wouldn't leave any of our regular four seamers out for him however. It may be Bresnan is becoming more of a batsman who bowls a bit, but we are some way from that yet. So where does Liam fit in?
