Australia v England T20's
 
First practice match about to start. Eng won the toss and elected to field.

A very strong PM's XI in opposition - funny how the Aussies can provide decent practice for a T20 match.

Eng team: Willey, Vince, Malan, Morgan, Billings, Buttler, Dawson, CurranS, Rashid, CurranT, Wood

Sir Coolerking 2nd February 2018 09:43

PM's XI made 136-8. Dawson the standout took 3-16 from 4 overs, Willey 3-32 from 4 and Rashid 1-14 from 3.

Psyduck 2nd February 2018 10:16

England 42-0 off 4 and strolling. Listening to the Australian commentary is absolutely hilarious; is there something about the Australian psyche that means they are totally unable to call a match impartially?

Psyduck 2nd February 2018 10:22

David Willey has just taken a Nathan Lyon over for 34 (666664).

Notts Exile 2nd February 2018 10:22

Willey's having fun. Wonder what the point in this exercise is, will they actually play him as an opener as oppose to proven International T20 batsmen?

34 off a Nathan Lyon over! Only hit a four off the final ball after 5 successive maximums, way to go!

Sir Coolerking 2nd February 2018 10:23

Is it wrong to retire batsmen in a T20 to give others a go?

Shame we didn't bat first, this could've been massive.

What on earth has happened to him? He was useless in the BBL too.

Jock McTuffnel v3 2nd February 2018 10:37

Oz cruelly robbed Willey of a T20 ton by posting such a pitiful score :D

I think the last few years have seen him on the sauce a fair bit and he's gone quite rapidly downhill from what I can tell. He was a pretty key player for them in the last 50 over world cup from what little I remember?

Not sure we have too many proven T20i openers, Hales and that's about it. Roys averaging 20 and Buttler has only opened once in internationals.

I've said for a long time that if Willey is selected in the ODI team he should be opening, I'm not really of that mind for T20i as I think we might as well have Buttler in from the start but if we're going to use Willey as a bowler in this series I wouldn't mind him given a chance to open for 3 games.

I thought you'd be pleased! Can't deny it worked a treat today but it's one thing slogging around some Aussie pie chuckers and a different kettle of fish taking on quality international pace bowlers armed with a new ball. That said I wouldn't mind him being given a shot in the tri-series.

Psyduck 3rd February 2018 08:43

Brilliant opening spell from Billy Stanlake in the first match of the tri-series. Good pace too - consistently up around 150kph.

sharky 3rd February 2018 09:19

This innings has been a bit painful to watch. Reminds me of a few Ross Taylor innings for Sussex.

1000yardstare 3rd February 2018 12:34

Much the same, both in team for their batting strike rate

30 T20s 282 runs at 20.14 HS41* s/r 154.94 Grandhomme
21 T20s 192 runs at 14.76 HS38 s/r 136.17 Stokes

10 wickets at 40.40 econ 8.78
10 wickets at 48.50 econ 9.03

Haha well it's more a combination of things rather than me being a fan of Willey.

I like a left/right combination at the crease, I really dislike Root coming in during the powerplay (not a big fan of Bairstow in the PP either) and Willey being rubbish lower down the order.

He looked really good in last years BBL, I haven't seen much of him this series though.

AJ101 7th February 2018 08:21

Australia win the toss and choose to bowl, Head in for Zampa.

England don't have Plunkett (maybe due to injury?)
1 Jason Roy, 2 Alex Hales, 3 Dawid Malan, 4 Eoin Morgan (capt), 5 Jos Buttler (wk), 6 Sam Billings 7 David Willey, 8 Adil Rashid, 9 Chris Jordan, 10, Tom Curran, 11 Mark Wood

Jock McTuffnel v3 7th February 2018 09:28

Decent first 10 overs - 200 would be a challenging score to set.

No hope. Be lucky to get to 160 the way this is going now.
