Need these two to stick around. Can go at 5 an over without even trying. Do that for a bit and it’s back in our hands.

Need Moeen to not hit a drive on the up to cover. Otherwise we’re seeing Mark wood.

Or Malan to pull straight to mid wicket...

They didn’t stick around so despite being well ahead runs wise we’re 6 down and up against it.

Standard. At least they were actually under pressure this time. Last time just threw it away.

Poor batting performance from us. The pitch has no demons and we’ve thrown away wickets.

Don't think Sam Curran is good enough to not take the runs on offer

Fuck me what an over. Certainly made up for those missed singles.

Came pretty damn close in the end. Sam ‘can’t bat’ Curran looked alright today...

Unlucky sam Curran. Let down by the other 7
Yep, very poor from the senior players.

Butler has been appalling this series.

I know we've lost every format but I've enjoyed the series as a whole.

Pity the test series was ruined by sub standard wickets regardless of what the ICC said. If a part time spinner can take five for feck all then something is wrong. Other than that it’s been a good series.

You’ve got to applaud Scurran for taking it to the end but he was too one dimensional to win it. Needed a charge down the wicket to throw the bowlers off their length. Even if it’s a clip into the leg side off of a full toss it would have been enough to keep the bowlers guessing. As it was he was waiting for the bowlers to miss their length and they were good enough not to.
Cracking game though.
