England vs Australia 2nd T20

Post by tiger76 » Sun Sep 06, 2020 12:35 pm

Starts in a couple of hours, surely it can't be as dramatic as Friday's contest, or can it.

We’ve seen some good cricket this year thankfully. The t20 v Australia was brilliant but that day at Old Trafford when we beat Pakistan is the best cricket I’ve watched since we restarted.

Some sports can handle the lack of fans better than others. Cricket is still cricket, if there are 5 people there or 50,000 at the MCG.

Footy however is a pale imitation without the fans

There's some truth in that, however T20 is vastly different to test cricket, and it's games like these where the absence of fans will be felt more.

Some cricket matches have had a sprinkling of spectators allowed to attend as part of the pilot scheme, and in an ordinary 4 day CC match, you wouldn't necessarily notice a huge difference, they generally aren't greatly attended in normal times, the expectations possibly being the Roses contest, and maybe Middlesex-Surrey, both those fixtures usually attract larger numbers.

There's growing noises that some football games will be open to a small number of fans from early October, but as with everything else this is subject to the situation at the time.

Cricket is still cricket, and football is still football. The atmosphere and tension at Headingley for Ben Stokes day last year was better than any football game I have been at.

Yes Clegghall - better than that. Better than Elliott at Wembley. I'd actually put it as better than any sporting event / success I've been at. Better than they Ryder Cup at the K Club, better than my own horse winning a race (never ever thought that would be beaten to be honest). Such an emotional roller coaster, such a feeling that every ball could be the ultimate end of the game, building and building to a crescendo over such a long time. I've never been at a sporting event, with so many people reduced to tears at the end of it.

Australia win the toss (My perception of Morgan winning the toss is that he is very unlucky in that space) and choose to bat first..... batting first of course eliminates the bottle job of chasing down a target.

We need Bairstow to fire today.

Hales and Roy are a massive miss for England in white ball cricket at the top of the order. It was that partnership that propelled us to world number one.

Alex Carey comes in at number 3, is Smith hiding in the dressing room :lol:

Get Smith early and we could easily roll them for 100-120 here, they showed the other night how brittle their middle/lower order is when under pressure. Archer & Wood meting out the punishment, it's always good to see the Aussies looking clueless, long way to go yet though.

England's game to lose from here, only 7 overs left, they'll do well to get 140-150 now most of their big guns are out.

Good point, and I believe it's the same pitch they used on Friday, so it might wear, the problem for Australia is having a defendable total to protect.

Right now unless Maxwell goes crazy in these next 5 overs that looks unlikely.

Poor last over from Jofra, 18 from it, 158 should be doable, but a few early wickets and who knows, I wouldn't rule Australia out of this yet.

I thought he looked like and England cricketer wearing a chain. In the same way Stuart Broad looked like an England cricketer wearing a headband in the recent test series.

Incredibly careless IMO. He's opening the batting for an International side, and loses concentration like that.

Malan gone for 42, surely England aren't going to implode the same as the Aussies the other day are they? As long as Jos stays in we'll be fine, but he really needs to bat through.
