Windies' fielding has been laughable, but well done Bairstow.

Is the next one not on telly? Can't see it on the Sky listings for Friday?

A win is a win but it was lacklustre performance from England tonight. Without Buttler, Ali and Stokes the team is very ordinary and Root needs a rest.

I think if you take players like Buttler and Stokes out of any team they're going to be noticeably weaker for it, that's the best 'finisher' in the world and one of the top all-rounders in the world. Moeen isn't quite at that standard but is another player that we don't really have a suitable replacement for so would be a big loss as well.

I heard that local and international TV are not broadcasting  as Windies board were asking far too much money. Also their main sponsor Digicel has pulled out and therefore they can not sell shirts etc till they find a new sponsor.

From what I've read the original deal only had one T20 game. When they added another two they asked Sky for a lot more money. They are still negotiating but it sounds like Sky have already sent their commentary team over so are confident of getting a deal. Fingers-crossed.

I donít particularly rate him, but pleased that Billings has finally got a big knock for England.

Great fielder as well Paul.  I agree with you, real talent.

Windies look like they're trying to break the record they set the other day.
