Johnny Bairstow's conversion rate is worse still with another 50+ score and out this innings.

Not sure if your only in the 50's with 9 down it should count! Anyway England's real problem is those pretty little teens and twenties.

Not sure I agree. If one of the three fifties had become a century, England score 400. If two, perhaps even 500.

Getting out on 49 today has ruined the Sky statisticians' day. Root was on course to have broken some record re the number of consecutive scores of 50 or more in Old Trafford tests.

77, 254, 71*, 52, 49 ...

Think we're up to 27 50s now, with no more centuries added. At least Mo, Hash and Faf passed 59!

Can't really say that Ali didn't try hard to get to his ton. Wasn't his fault the rest of the team got out before he could, given he was going well over a run a ball. A series for the bowlers, for sure, although England did just enough with the bat. In a way you could take it as a positive that there were so many contributions from 1-8.

George Dobell has tweeted that the suited and booted man in the picture has been dropped for his team's last t20 game.

Well his batting form in this format (and others!) has been iffy. But he's the captain and his team have a good chance of being quarter-finalists so the timing seems odd.

George Dobell is also the only one reporting this.

... But the team announcement following the toss confirms that Dobell was right.

Welcome to Dawid Malan btw. Will it be he or Westley who appears here more before the series is out.

That Malan innings belongs in the other thread. If you were to do a runs weighting thing, a West Indies handicap of say 60 runs would make Root's 130odd a worthy entrant.

Nah mate. Wasn't a proper gritty one.

Further to my last replies, the Warwickshire commentators say that it was Bell's own decision, i.e. he dropped himself.

He's always been a good judge of a player.

The Bears have got a couple of new big-hitting batsmen and Warwickshire now seem on course for victory v Lancs, assisted by some atrocious Lancashire fielding.
