England v Pakistan 20/20

England didn't bowl great but Pakistan were phenomenal. Sometimes you've just got to tip your hat and say well done and move on to the next game.

Bowling wasn't really good enough (don't think we read the pitch correctly) and obviously the drops, but....

Probably the best opening partnership in the format, sublime players both of them.

Stone and (potentially) Wood could be back today?

I do feel sorry for Willey as well, I'm a fan of his - a good bowler but we surely need to take a sensible approach to conditions/pitch when picking him? Made to look a lot worse than he actually is last night.

It was a good game to watch and thought England's 199 was a decent enough score to win however Pakistan gave us a lesson in batting. Series score at 1-1 which keeps it interesting. What is also encouraging is how the Pakistan crowd are grateful that the series is being played and cricket has returned to this fanatical cricket loving country after 17 years in the wilderness.
