Great start for England against South Africa, first ball of the innings a wicket for Willey.

Good bowling performance all round.  Especially good from Mason Crane, the young leg spinner on debut.

Willey getting someone early is why I'd pick in the 50 over team, he brilliant at it and even if he only bowls 4-5 at the start if he can take a wicket or 2 and put them on the backfoot early then it's job done.  With us picking 6 frontline bowlers and having a very good aprt-timer in Root we can go for a genuine specialist like him.

Very good win that.  Good bowling performance and excellent run chase.  Roy looked back to form and Hales and Bairstow were excellent.

Not seen much of the former, but they are supposed to have a pretty decent leg spinner aren't they?

Haven't seen him but some nineteen-year-old took eight for fifteen against the Windies the other day.

Very pleased for both countries, well deserved.

If the Afghan team can give a bit of hope and cheer to the population, then good luck to them.

That's him.

Agree about Afghanistan and Ireland, good for the game as a whole.

Yep, Blowers used to be a great commentator but it's become cringeworthy listening in recent years

Shall see when both sides have batted of course, but I think thats a fine bowling effort from England on such a small ground

This has been really good from Roy, if only he'd have found this form a few weeks back.
