Keep losing wickets at the wrong time. Think 320-330 is about a par score

Yep, we've just started accelerating the score and lost wickets 3 times now. That said there's now no point anyone coming in and leaving anything on the pitch so they'll just go for it. Stokes needs to take the lead though, he's well set and should be eyeing a century here. If he gets there we're looking at 310-320 minimum with the batting still to come out.

Need to push on now. They've just allowed the last couple of overs to pass by.

Moeen seems badly out of nick

Great catch in fairness, but that was a really really poor innings from Moeen. 3 from 9 runs not good enough.

His batting seems way off at the moment.

defending 311 then, as above I reckon that's just about par, now we need to take early wickets and then let the pressure build on them.

Good test for the bowling attack in the very first game.  Bowl well and we should win, bowl poorly and there is a chance they will chase that score down.

Rashid and Ali will be massively important, it has spun from the first over.

Yep, I agree, I think Root might well bowl 4-5 overs here as well.

Brutal delivery from Archer there to Amla. 145kph bouncer straight into the grille, having to change his helmet and looked a bit shaken by it.

There's a rumour that he's failed the concussion protocols so won't be back.

A nice selection headache to have.

If De Kock stays in he’ll win it for them, we need him out.

We need a wicket.

Haven't questioned Morgans captaincy much, but have to say it was a mistake not to give Archer at least another over especially considering there was a new batsman in and he'd hust taken 2 wickets

Plunkett looks like the weak link I suspected he would and Moeen is backing up his poor batting effort with a mediocre at best bowling display.
