Root is clearly struggling with his back, not sure why he’s fielding.

At the end of our innings he was stood by the dressing room door to greet Ali and Woakes. He was wearing some sort of back support over his kit. It looked like one of those Slendertone stomach toners!

The 2 drops by Bairstow (who would take both of them 9 times out of 10) are why this seems a bit flat, they were both at pretty important times and have let them build partnerships.

Yeah I mean I’m not going hammer them for dropping intensity when they’ve won by a mile. They just to make sure it doesn’t bleed into games where it matters.

That's the easy games out of the way.  New Zealand, India, Australia and Sri Lanka to come.  Good to build up a head of steam.

I'd say Sri Lanka are the 2nd weakest side in the competition.

I enjoyed that game. For all your big total plays big total games, sometimes low scoring games are better.

Yes. Spent the day at Edgbaston today. This was a great old fashioned  one day game. South Africa failed because they had no breaks going in their favour and did not grab the chances that came their way. Miller was guilty of messing up and  Du Plessis's reluctance to review was a significant factor as Williamson could have gone long before he won it for the Kiwis.

Women's cricket added to Brum 2022. Good news, that. Hopefully a step towards Olympic cricket.

Bangladesh play without fear which is really refreshing to see.

The Crims front line bowlers like Starc are excellent but the back up are a bit meh. With a little luck they could win this and the Crims will flounder.

Come on Bangladesh!
