He works in 20/20 cricket when batsmen are constantly going after the bowling as Rashid seems to have no idea where the ball is going to land ... so the batsman has no chance. A couple of times in the middle of the innings you could see a bit of pressure being applied only for a poor ball to relieve it all again. If he is to have any kind of future in any of the longer formats he has got to reduce the bad balls to one every three or 4 overs, currently its often one every 3 or 4 balls.
Certainly agree that Rashid needs to cut down on the bad deliveries. A leggie will always send a few down, though.

Not sure I saw Ali pose much of a threat, apart from to a slightly earlier finish.

Over two overs gone and no wickets down!

Splendid batsman scorecard symmetry after 12 overs.

As I was about to say, "Do it right the first time".

"And, if you don't get it right first time, keep on doing it until you get it right the first time".

Roy and Hales are giving us an excellent platform here.

Roy is definitely a talent to be backed and they have certainly given Hales a reasonable chance. I hope at least one of these (prefereably both) kicks on.

Heck, we may have something to bowl at!

Hales and Roy going well. Roy rode his luck a bit early on but has played some excellent shots since.

Excellent opening partnership from Roy and Hales. Roy could do with breaking the habit of getting in and then getting himself out shortly after reaching 50 but his development in little more than 6 months of international cricket is very encouraging indeed.

I think it might have been a good time to send David Willey in but never mind.

A period of consolidation by Hales and Root? Fair enough, so long as they don't get themselves out after settling in.

That review was arguably worse than England's in the last match. At least England's was hitting the stumps and although stupid you could see how they got confused. That pitched almost a foot outside leg.

Debutant getting excited wasn't it?

Root's scoring rate here is a big concern. No boundaries yet and only one shot for more than a single.

Excellent from Hales and Roy though.

Not too concerned about Root's scoring rate if he can coax Hales along. The partnership has yielded five runs per over in any case, which is pretty ideal given England's propensity for collapsing in a heap.

They need to be going at more than 5 an over.

At least Root is now stepping up his scoring rate.

A score just over 300 should be enough for the win here, based on the first match. They are using the same strip, apparently. England should be looking for 320 or so, from here, which is very doable.

It irritates me seeing players play for landmarks but well done hales. First of many we hope. Let's hope we don't have to wait another few years.

I do still worry he will Nick off or get bowled vs SA in tests but hope to be wrong.

Well batted Alex Hales. Shame he slowed up a bit with the hundred in sight but hopefully now he will be able accelerate.

That comment sort of reminds me of one of the most selfish innings played of all time.

Of course he will. The question is, like Warner, does he come off often enough for it to be worthwhile.
