Clearly second favourites now. Think this will be very difficult to win now.

Agreed!

At least we have some power players still to come. All not lost yet.

Bairstow nearly plays on a couple of times an innings to be fair, hes got lucky twice this innings a lone.

We are too impatient when chasing it seems

Difficult to get momentum and they batted at just over four per over all the way through. We are fast approaching six per over.

Only in England would we produce a pitch that completely suits the opposition style of play perfectly!

And this is not hindsight, I was saying this as soon as I saw it.

Bairstow got away with 2 inside edges on to stumps against India and also 1 against NZ before dragging on.

Absolute top notch bowling. Bairstow was unlucky there because at least he was keeping the scoreboard ticking whilst adapting his normal game to the great bowling. Root lost the plot.

Root put England in trouble, 7 runs off 30 balls is appalling.

I’m not sure getting 167 from 174 balls is very likely on this wicket.

My post of 25 June, when we were playing the Aussies, could well come back to haunt me ---I sincerely hope not!!

Why they keep playing these crucial games at Lords I'll never know.

It levels the playing field up too much for the opposition in terms of wicket and crowd. It's hardy home advantage.


Our win rate is also poor here.

CT

Didn't say I agreed with it I was just posting what the computer indicated.

As for the pitch I have watched most games and, shall we say, they have at least been consistent in getting slower as the game goes on. Hardly any of the pitches have been up to standard which is why there have been low scores and very few teams chasing scores down.

I can’t imagine they’d ever play it anywhere else when it’s being held here. It’s considered the head quarters of the game worldwide.

Not been great at chasing anyway, and under this pressure with this scoreboard, I cant see us pulling it round.
Stokes is the only one in any sort of form.

Butler hasn't had a knock yet, and you can only really ask for 50 from our last 4 ( if overs dont run out )
