Our ground fielding has been poor today.

Our fielding has been terrible today too.

Rashid has been awful today. Wood and Plunkett seem to have some control but every one else has been poor.

My God, are our fielders pissed? Two full tosses in an over from Woakes. Jesus, this is wank.  We need wickets.

Our fielding has been really poor. Itís been a bang average performance in the field, Wood excepted.

Woakes has been absolutely shocking for the majority of today.

We score 418 runs.  We should be able to defend that and yet the odds are with the Windies.  Fuck Stokes has just dropped a catch. Elbow ball.

Wicket!  Dot ball probably just as valuable.

I disagree. The game is so heavily weighted in favour of the batsmen that virtually any total is gettable.

And Rashid shows the value of his wrist spinners with 3 wickets in 4 balls. Thatís why heís in the team.

Nah. I respectfully disagree.  England are likely to win this now thanks to those three wickets in the one over, but let's be honest, our bowling has been terrible other than Wood and Plunkett, our fielding today has been very poor.   Bloody hell, we win as I type.

Rashid has come up big time here.
