@1084I said the shot was indefensible.But i also stand by that the s hots Bairstow and buttler played across the line to Malinga were also brainless.Because of where he delivers the ball you have to play jim str8. Thsts basics.
@1083 Being honest I can't see how you can say Bairstow is a standout when he has scored less than Morgan in less Innings. Buttler. He is wasted down the the order. Expecting him to pull rabbits out of hats every game is a bit much to ask. The rest I think I agree on. I love Mo...... but his batting has been a disappointment.
We could do with a bowler that "slings" the ball.
They will not make the top 4 let alone win it. Hyped up like the footballers and will ALWAYS ALWAYS fail in a major competition. Oh and England u21's football team have also FAILED. Makes me so mad we just cannot WIN anything in sport these days.
I have said severe times that Vince and Rashid are underperforming Worcester. Don’t think Morgan or Woakes are though. The shot Moeen played yesterday is indefensible, unless you’re a Pear.
@1078If everyone was honest their are a few underperforming atmButtler,Morgan ( apart from 1 innings) Woakes, Rashid Vince and Ali with bat ( not ball)Plunkett and roy been good when playedWood Archer stokes Bairstow and root only standout players.
1078All i can say is that when hes played for Worceter i dont see him doing that sort of thing but like i said he bats 3 there.He should move down order and Curren come in if we want a no7.Also when was woakes last good innings for England apart from when he went 3.Keep saying Ali is not doing it beither is he.
1074. Posted by ALAWMoeen Ali still getting picked for one good innings every blue moon. Baffling.Is Ali in the team for batting? If so, why is he at number 7?
I have watched all the cricket world cups since the initial one in England in 1975. Mostly on TV and a few matches on the ground. The general standard of cricket in CWC 2019 is the lowest in my opinion. So why single out England for one loss and that too against a previous winner?
So looking forward to hearing the plank English booing David Warner to another century and an Aussie victory. You just KNOW it's gonna happen.
Worcester if he’s being told to play like that regardless of the situation then I look forward to Bayliss exit even more than I am now, and as you say he should know better. He did bowl well I’ll give him that.
All down voters for 1061, still confident?
@1067I think you are right i honestly believe thats the style they want him to play. He has never had that role in cc. Having said that he has 100 caps now mostly at 7 so if he hasnt worked it out now then. But also what about Woakes and Rashid. I think its the way Moeen gets out like KP and Gower in the past that annoys people and looks awful.
Enjoying Afghanistan India match - regardless of outcome,it puts England's performance yesterday in perspective; any 'big' team can make a hash of it!
Moeen Ali still getting picked for one good innings every blue moon. Baffling.

CHARACTER.... Cricket is very much in the head. Winning is about attitude and situational intelligence. So If we really WANT to win then we have to play Tom Curran. He would have got us over the line with Ben Stokes and his bowling is full of the variation that has been missing for the last few matches. Stokes and Curran are winners, they think it and they do it..
Now is the time to show some steel. England batsmen not afraid of losing their wicket to bowler - rather, bowlers afraid of having to deliver final overs to England batsmen.How could Wood have not survived one delivery? ( Or Moeen, Root, Bairstow et al?..) And with 3 rampant lions on Stokes' chest!?...
