England vs Pakistan | 4th ODI | Trent Bridge, Nottingham | May 17, 2019 | Match thread |

Recommended Posts

No Morgan, no Bairstow. That's two of the top four in the batting line-up not playing. If England still manage to get 400, God help whoever plays against them in the World Cup. :fear1:

Stokes will probably bat at 4 like he did last match. England might want to get him and Ali into some serious form. Alex Hales has been an absolute beast at this ground and Pakistan will be thankful for his absence. :pray:

James Vince is no mug with the bat . He was, comfortably , the best batsman in the Royal London Cup with a high average and striking @110. They won't miss Bairstow a lot.

As good as Vince may be, any opposition will prefer bowling to him over Bairstow at the blink of an eye. Bairstow is the second most ferocious hitter in the England line up after Buttler. 

Vince's batting is quite pleasing to the eye. He will be looking to strengthen his WC claim in Hales' place. Only problem is that he has a propensity to lose his wicket in the midst of being in sublime touch.

I agree. Bairstow is a fearsome hitter. I actually don't think they need Root at all. They can play 

 

Roy

Bairstow

Vince

Morgan

Buttler

Stokes

Ali

 

That lineup cam crush any bowling attack on a flat track. Root actually slows them down a bit.

Root is actually a key player. He holds one end in the middle overs and can score runs briskly also. No way is Vince better than him. 

Root is the main reason why we lost 2-1 in that last series.

Just now, Forward Defence said:

Rohit scored a match winning century at this very ground last time we played.

Was it while batting first or chasing a relatively low score?

So what if it was scored while chasing? India knocked off the target in 40 overs so there wasnt much tuk tuk as you seem to automatically assume

So your comment was out of context. Low score to chase means less pressure. Also I am talking about what could happen if Ind is batting first

On this type of pitch where batsmen can back themselves, Ind could be 40-45/0 after PP. Then someone like Rohit would get out in the 11-12th over :phehe:

Used to be the case back in 2016/17. Not now. They have picked up the pace in the last one year.

Its ODI not t20....u can catch up , actually many in t20 catchup

You can catch up if you're Rohit or Watson, who can up the ante quite easily. Imam has limited stroke play.

this guy scored 150.......avg 54 in SA, where rohit has been a failure 

pretty good for a guy with limited stroke play. U can treat every game same way...sometime u hve to take some time against intial movement or sometime the rhythm takes time to get going. He may not be watson or rohit but he isnt rahane

He might have scored a 150 , he may average 54 in SA but the fact is that he was struggling big time against the pace of Archer and wood , who by the way were not playing in the last game.
