Oh dear.  Woakes has had a series to forget.  Let's hope he makes up for it with the ball.  We need a total here, not looking good at the moment.  Nearly another wicket there too.

113 in just 28 overs.  Dreadful performance.  Nowhere near a good enough total to defend either.  Even is we had got to 150 I might be a tad more optimistic.

This is why weíll more than likely blow it in the World Cup. If conditions donít suit we do not adapt. Terrible performance, absolutely awful.

No ball for Gayle's wicket.  Seems a bit harsh, especially as he chose to walk towards the ball.

Bad rule. He stepped forward and tried to hit it for six and got caught the boundary. Thatís out.☹️

Absolutely.

I hope England manage to keep Mark Wood fit for the Ashes series.  Quality bowler.  I am looking forward to seeing him and Ollie Stone working together.

How unlucky is Woakes?  Another one turned down.  Though always looked just a tad high if it hits the top of the knee roll.

Woakes has had an absolute nightmare in these last two games.

The tour has been way below par from England.

Oh well, at least they saved the worst performance for when I'm busy at the football.

Good news that Archer looks likely to be called up pre-World Cup

Yep, Bit of a no brainer really. Our bowling attack needs that extra wicket taking ability.
