Handy for Mo to get a couple of big hits in as well, get him a bit of form back.

The worst thing is
Slow going at the moment.
this was very true at the time and you'd have looked at the score then and thought 300-320 was a good score, getting near to 400 from there is insane.

The last 20 overs were just nuts.

Violent hitting by Morgan.

One of these days a top order batsman will bat for most of the overs and score 200 plus and his team score nearly 500.

As long as (a) heís English and (b) we do it against the Crims in the final.

Imagine if it had been Buttler at his best at the other end for 20 overs.

That would be something to see.

I donít actually think it will happen in this tournament where the pitches are prepared to ICC instructions/specifications.

Itís more likely to happen in an international series next summer when we prepare the pitches without outside governance.

Edit Iíve just looked at the schedule for next summer, we are playing the Crims in a 3 game ODI series next year so we might do it against them!

brilliant delivery to be fair but yes, nasty contact, it shows why helmets are so important though. Thankfully he looks shaken but ok to carry on. I wouldn't want Wood to change his bowling though, he's got them really rattled here.

Heís batting on so heís a courageous individual. I thought that the rules are now that you automatically go off in these circumstances so you can be checked over by the medics.

Bowling has gone off the boil a bit.

Bit disappointing that we are just going through the motions in the field.

Game is of course well won, but we shouldn't have let our intensity drop like this.
