England vs The Pakistan 2nd OneDayer

Post by Lincoln » Sat May 11, 2019 4:45 pm

This is shaping up to be a decent game...England piled on a great total of 373 but the bacons are fighting back.

Currently 194-1 the pitch is doing nothing and our bowlers don't look up to much...

Mistake to drop Archer?

Real sports fans from the U.S.A. DON'T CARE !
Right now it is all about the NBA Playoffs, Major League Baseball, and the PGA Championship which starts on Thursday in New York, and Tiger will be looking to win another Major.

WC batsmen going to be easy to select.

There's a lot of choice at bowlers, and they have to make the right choice to get variation in.

Shame Stokes has lost all ability to take a wicket.

Stokes should be a great odi player. But his bowling stats are horrible over his whole career. It’s not the lack of wickets but the pies he tosses down there

Who'd you have as your 5 bowlers in the first choice XI?
(disregarding opposition, ground, and conditions)

Let's say Stokes is a batsman only (which he is in ODI now really) and wicketkeeper makes up one of the top 6 batsmen. Or, in England's case, half of them.

I'm assuming Archer will see action in at least the last ODI

Talk of him playing possibly at Trentt Bridge, to see how he reacts to being battered, and it being a potential venue for a WC meet up between the two teams.

Surprised they haven’t given him more games so he can into the swing of things.

Saw him play on Friday and he's an impressive character....he's got youth on his side and is not yet the finished article....they should stick with him.

Can you cricket fans tell me which English bowler gas taken the most one day wickets since 2015?

At least I know Lincoln wont use Google.

Because Lincoln is a spastic.

He’s a quality one day player - good economy rate, good strike rate - over 100

Economy, yes. But not many wickets recently.

Curran difficult to ignore.

I guess the best XI is kind of a moot point. They will pick based on who is fit, playing well, pitch type etc.
