losing the 2 set batsmen in consecutive balls was a massive blow to them, it's probably cost them 15-20 runs.

We've chased this well. Hopefully Root's injury isn't too bad and Woakes is better than it appears.

Can't grumble at that chase.

Nope, no real worries at all about the top seven, although Roy's form is becoming a bit of a concern.  The bowling is a bit of a worry if Woakes and Stokes are injured and I founded the decision to drop Rashid a bit puzzling seeing as he's played a lot recently.

On another note Tamim really is a top class batsman.

Roy will be fine. He's a good player, with a lot of talent, he just needs to find his game again.

Woakes confirmed as out of the tournament.  That's a massive blow, I wonder what they'll do for a replacement, maybe just Bring Rashid back in and keep Ball in the side but I'm not sure that's a good idea.  Personally I'd go with Willey.

It'll be Finn. It usually is.

Finn would be my second choice.  The key thing is wee need to pick a wicket taker.  Willey gets something in the first power play and Finn always has a wicket in him.  Ball just doesn't give me thaqt confidence.

Agree Paul.  As a left armer, Willey offers something a bit different and his batting would surely make him as near as a like for like replacement for Woakes as we will get.  The seam attack is all a bit samey at the moment.

Broad was left out of Nottinghamshire's side for their County Championship match today, maybe...?

To be honest I think Woakes out has ruled us out of winning it. We need wickets and he's the man

I like him but I'm not sure bringing someone in for their 2nd cap during a very competitive competition is the right idea, it's a very different situation to bowling in a dead rubber at the end of series that's already been won.
