Not a great start to chase Roy gone and used our review. Rashid bowled excellently.

I thought that was a very poor review.

Off for rain, bad timing for the wicket.

Keep hearing dropping Roy for Bairstow being discussed and whether Bairstow could open. Surely it would make sense to have Root open as he's been coming in early anyway?

That's a bit of a stretch. Weather didn't cost Australia the game today.

England have to win this tournament. I don't care what the rankings say England are the best team in the world.

I agree, Roy in reasonable form, Stokes fully fit and Woakes fit and we'd be even further ahead.  In our own conditions we are the best.

Another very good win.  Thought Wood and the spinners in particular bowled very well and to think Woakes is also missing it was an impressive bowling performance.  The batting line up is very strong and even when we were three down and struggling, there was still plenty of batting left to come.  Woakes for Plunkett and a fully fit Tymal Mills for Ball (we could well see that side in the upcoming T20s) and it would be a very, very good side.
