England have subsided but looking at that team it's very light on batting.

Windies making a good start in the first ODI.  Gayle and Lewis look a strong opening partnership in the limited over formats of the game.  Our bowling attack looks a bit one paced.

Edit - Lewis just gone.

I haven't seen any today. Decent bowling? Poor batting? Shit wicket? Their current score doesn't look up to much to me.

Sounds decent overall but Stokes had another poor last over, he doesn't like a last over against the windies does he.

I last looked with 9 balls left and Holder was on 28 or 29. I was quite surprised to see he was still there and on 41 at the close.

England cruising at the moment, 146-1 off 22 overs.

Bairstow hitting form just at the right time perhaps.

Windies won toss and put England in to bat.

England same team, 2 x changes for Windies one being no Chris Gayle.

India 220/6 44 gone v Aussies

I posted on Facebook earlier how i was enjoying the days cricket - listening to the goings on at Headingley and watching
India hopefully smash Aussies....then leaving that game to watch England v Windies.....just should have kept fingers away
from keyboard as within 2 overs off at Trent Bridge due to rain...no worries switch over and watch India again and what do
i find walking off for rain (thankfully only short break) but at this time i couldn't resort to Headingly as there they were off
for lunch.
Tale continues to unfold with Bears coming out for lunch only to then succumb to firstly light then rain, incidentally they are
due to be back on in 5 minutes. All this though does give me opportunity to see Zimbabwean Cartwright dismissed for 1 soon followed by
Warner. Aussies 14/2 chasing 253.
Lost only 1 over at Headingley, just coming out now.

Good timing from Steve Finn, in terms of Ashes selection, to take 8-79 and win the match for Middlesex.
