In what I have seen so far of all the cricket v Bangladesh in both ODI and the tests that Bangladesh have improved in the last few years.

190-2. Better listening than it sounds because if it was at Lords or somewhere you could imagine them getting 500 plus. It still might happen but if they are all out for 300 you wouldn't be at all surprised.

196-4, England dragging themselves back into it. Tamim is a mercurial talent.

What this morning has shown is that Moeen Ali is our best spinner.

I may have been a tad generous gifting them 300.

At 170 for 1 i confidently predicted 250 all out.
I may have been on the generous side as well.

At 154/1 I got a post on Cricinfo berating the England team. Nice to keep my hand in over the winter happy.gif

I agree Moeen Ali is our best spinner TODAY. His problem is one of consistency - it takes some doing to be less economical than a legspinner on a track that is turning square but he managed it in the last Test Match.

I agree. He's the least unreliable which does make him the best. What an outstanding spell from Stokes again though.

Agreed Seadog, it's a low base to judge from.

Too many Southpaws?

England have a lot of left handers in their top order.

Same as Yorkshire.

Another failure for Ballance, surely it's time to put him (& us) out of his misery.
Poor young Habeeb is going to find himself in the same boat as Lyth when they wouldn't pick him vs the Windies then expected him to come good against the Aussies.
Unless they simply see Duckett keeping Hales' seat warm for his return in India.
Likewise the selection for the tour of Ansari (or Batty) over Leach looks a wee bit flawed.
Will Ansari go the way of Kerrigan?

Hales hasn't been selected for India though.

To be fair I don't think Ballance could have done much about his dismissal today. You just have to credit the bowler, and the pitch, sometimes.

He certainly didn't look like a walking wicket and even put a few bad balls away nicely. We didn't see him flirting down the leg side, then again he wasn't in for long enough to see if he has been cured.

Ashwin must be licking his lips or at least his spinning fingers at the prospect of bowling at all the left handers at the top of the English batting order.
Like Yorkshire they really need to try to find more RH batsmen to give the bowlers something more to challenge them.
