Eng v Aus. One day match.

Root’s been poor of late at the limited over game. Anyone else would have been taken out of the team.
Wasn't it that kind of attitude that meant we were the laughing stock of cricket for a period???
Root was our leading run scorer at our only successful world Cup last year and this year hasn't been exactly normal has it.

39 in the last match wasn't bad as it turned out.

He's done alright for Yorkshire in T20's this year too. He's not at his best generally though, I agree.
That is what I am saying Lefty - his head is elsewhere. He’s got an average of 13 in these three games scoring 1, 39 & 0 in the three one days against the Aussies.

England left him out of the T20 to try and help.

Well, for me he should always be part of the squad, but there is no harm putting someone else in for him, we're not short of talent.

I’ve just finished work and looked at the score. Sports people can really shove it to you at times and show you right up 😳. I stand all apologetic.

That is some score they reached, I never expected that.

Rashid was expensive all game and didn't look confident at all. Ah well it's been an odd cricket season and probably fitting that it ends in another really close game even if we came up just short this time.
