Telling his bowlers to target Munro's leg stump wasn't very masterful. And it must have been a plan because Willey, Curran and Jordan all did it...

Munro simply couldn't believe his luck!

Amazes me still people believe economy is the answer, economy can be handy but wickets win you games in all formats. If you can't take wickets then you be buggered, probably the weakest part of England's game in the 90s, although selection policies didn't help.

EDIT : As I typed Malan has snared a wicket, even if a 'cunning plan' it was never likely to win England the game, and there's no point saving your death bowlers when the corpse (game) has had autopsy and been buried. Less than 10 runs needed now
England managed to win the game even though they took 3 fewer wickets than NZ. So actually this game provides evidence against your perennial hypothesis. As for winning the game AND getting through to the final, that was never going to happen, but probably the best way to bowl NZ out would have been for us to get lots more runs.

It may perhaps have something to do with the necessity to leave enough time for people to place their bets as the game swings this way and that.

T20 is simply too short a format for such wide gaps between two quality sides to occur except in the rarest circumstances. Apparently the last time England won a T20 match by more than 20 runs was in 2015.
If England hadn't bowled as badly in the first few overs they might have done it.

Whilst England's bowlers were not great, little has been made of the efforts of Roy and Hales. Once again we were on the back foot from the outset, 41-2 from the powerplay will rarely win you a T20. It only did on this occasion as NZ got confused about which total they were chasing.

If Root and Bairstow return for the ODI's, one of those 2 will go. And given Malan's form, you could make a case for kicking both out.

They come off about one innings in 5 at most. Hopefully Bairstow will return for one of them in the ODI's Stokes for Billings.

Bayliss wants to do away with most international T20s. In this respect I agree with him.

Not sure it was really Roys fault in this match he did get us off to a good start, we just stuttered after he got out. I'm not sure why people want Root or Bairstow opening in ODI's they really aren't suited to it, Malan could be a good option though and with the form he's in I'd say give him the series opening.

I'm a fan of T20 cricket. I'm a fan of T20 cricket because it allows me to watch an entire game after work.

I don't think I've ever complained about slow over rates in test cricket (other than if a team is deliberately wasting time to lose overs). I don't need 16 overs to be bowled an hour to be entertained. I need engaging cricket. I've never notice a T20 game drag, other than when the result is a foregone conclusion.

What does bore me though is commentators complaining about over rates.

But it was strange that there was no reaction at all to getting to the final.
It just shows the level of interest in the tournament.

Hales has dropped off ever since Jason Roy became his opening partner. In T20 cricket they don’t work well together.
