Yep, that was a mess.  I posted about Roy on here, walked to shop and got back to see the last 2 overs and couldn't quite work out how we'd got ourselves into that position.

It was awful really. Morgan or Buttler should have came in when Roy got out. I know they were trying to give the opportunity to Livingstone, but he was clearly nervous and a bit overawed by the situation. 16 from 18 was the poor result.

We should have put winning the game ahead of that

Does anyone have the ECB app and know how to turn on Wicket Alerts? It was literally the only reason to have the app and seems to have disappeared.

Ignore above. Got rid and installed Cricinfo app which seems to do the same thing instead.

I see the ICC have changed the rules so that you don't lose your review if it's "Umpire's Call". Good rule changed, IMO.

They've also introduced DRS in T20 Internationals and scrapped the rule that they get topped up after eighty overs.

Rule changes effective 1st October.

Great start by Malan, Roy looked good but misjudged one and Hales is struggling after a nasty one onto the inside of his knee.

Really poor from Livingstone, no need to try something like that to your first ball.

England finish with 181 - probably 10-15 less than it should've been because the last few overs were poor.

Great from Malan, but again we fall away. I'm sure he has talent but what exactly does Billings bring to the England team?

Massive wicket for Crane, 100 needed from 9 overs with ABDV gone is a massive ask.

Decent hands in the deep (and generally good fielding) and he can score quick runs, just hasn't worked in these 2 T20s.  I think there's something to work with there.

It's beyond just these two T20s though, whenever he's played he's struggled. Hopefully he'll come good but thus far he's not performed.

For me he's had 3-4 good knocks across T20is and ODIs but his appearances seem to be 1 game in 3-4 so he's never settled into the side.

Anyway, good win for England, some great bowling after a brilliant 15-16 overs with the bat.
