Itís gett a bit worrying. They are batting really well and donít really like giving any chances after Rootís early drop.

Morgan a massive let down again, Root scoring runs like it was a test match.

India played short and left the wicket almost undamaged for Kohli to have a birthday. They know they can outscore us.

Iím very nervous, two in batsmen and a lot of wickets left. We need wickets and some tight overs.

To go back to what Fred was posting earlier about ugly shots (and text book drives), the problem is that most teams have the same text book so they set fields to restrict the 'correct' shot. That's why odd shots that look really awkward have become so common, because that's how you find the gaps.

On the game itself, I think the wicket just has had a big impact because we've got rid of their big players now, a few 4-5 run overs and it'll put a huge amount of pressure on the 'lesser' guys and I can't see them getting the win.

We're in charge, but never underestimate our capacity to fuck it up from here.
