Superb win, fantastic performance from the tail with both bat and ball.

What a performance with the ball, great captaincy from Morgan to bring back Archer & Woakes when we needed wickets. The Aussie collapse from that point was wonderful to see.

I guess the aussie collapse and the incredible figures for the England quicks shows that the pitch was at least part of the problem. That's gotta be one of the lowest scoring ODIs for years.

They used the same pitch on Friday too. It was two paced, slow and our attack made the most of it.

Yeah I figured they must've done that, results like this are inevitable if international teams are reusing pitches, at this level the bowlers are good enough to make the most of anything they get.

Roy is a funny player. When heís in form and confident heís brilliant, we wouldnít have won the World Cup without him. But heís one of the worst out of form batsmen Iíve seen.

I think the pitch has played a big part in that.

TMS saying that Morgan and the coaches had requested these type of pitches in preparation for the next T20/ODI World Cups which are both in India

Good knock from Woakes, a quickfire 50 to post a competitive score considering the poor start.
