Looks like England have finally seen the light re Jason Roy.

Might have been better to see the light before they selected the squad though?! Unless they plan to bat Roy in the middle order?

Hey let's not knock them getting the right selection at last. It's taken long enough!

Vacancy at 4

I'll catch up with the highlights to see how he goes. Not sure opening is best for him but at least it gets him in the side.

There may well be a vacancy at 4 soon.

Was anyone else irritated by Nasser Hussain (mainly) saying that Bairstow's job was simply to get Buttler on strike? Though Buttler ultimately scored at only a fraction over one run/ball - it's T20 I'm referrring to - and Jonny's scoring rate was much higher. Buttler also dominated the strike, though the two of them arrived at the crease together, so perhaps he agreed with Hussain.

I was screaming at them to get Plunkett in ahead of both Rashid and Willey, all of which would have been unnecessary if they had picked Stokes in the first place. Typical England shambles.

Presumably to replace Morgan who some think is not good enough?

Time to move on

T20I and ODI's are usually soon forgotten and often seem pointless.

They do though raise valuable funds through TV coverage, provide entertainment for many who often don't go to watch any other cricket, and most importantly build a team for the next meaningful tournament.

The World cup in 2019 followed by T20 in 2020 is now where England need to focus.

I think they will split the England team coach role soon leaving Bayliss to concentrate on Tests. Lots of decisions for the new man to make, most importantly, who is to be the Captain, looking to the future.

In my view we have learned all we can from the Morgan era. The positive cricket has been good, the poor uninspiring on-field captaincy has been bad.

If Morgan isn't Captain he isn't playing in my view and it's reaching the point, possibly after this series but more likely after the the Ashes tour where a decision has to be made.

"If Morgan isn't captain he isn't playing."

How do you come to that conclusion? It certainly can't be based on his cricket given he's the 4th highest run scorer in ODI's in 2017, averages 54 at a strike rate of 99 and has 3 hundreds this year.

Based on those stats he's a complete liability. Sack him!! 😉

"I think they will split the England team coach role soon leaving Bayliss to concentrate on Tests."

I think you've got this rather the wrong way round: Bayliss is an excellent white ball coach and has done very well with England's limited overs sides (the main job he was hired to do), but his progress with the Test side has been less smooth. If there is to be a job split it would definitely be a Test specialist coach they would be looking for.
