Rashid's 0-28 not looking so clever now.
Straight run up - loop and dip and varying his spin. Looks decent for this format.

England just look off their game today.
Out of 24 balls, Malan had faced 18 and scored at a run a ball. That's defeating the object of having Buttler at the top of the order.

Don't understand why Morgan didn't give Stokes a couple of overs instead Tom Curran.

Sky sports piece pre innings doubting WJB batting 4 because it would mean he was facing spin looking a bit off.

Jos failed, it happens. He has not been in great form.

Isn't Malan the top t20 player in the world?

Besides which, I would prefer Jos down the order.

Filthy leg spin delivery doing the trick again, it's fascinating how effective ordinary wrist spin is in this format.

He should be playing nonetheless, though.

Is Malan the new Root?

Still looks significantly better than the figures of Jordan and Tom C.

Come on England!

Great for England.

Great knock from Bairstow. Well done England.

Think England got away with it there due to that nightmare over from Hendericks. Why Morgan bowed out Tom Curran when he had Stokes available is a real mystery.

Agreed. Of all the options at Englandís disposal heís the worst against spin. It becomes a no-brainer for the opposition to start with spin.

Exactly. Poor attention to detail from England.

I think all International T20's go to Super Overs, we've had a couple with NZ.

Morgan summed it up perfectly, 2 or 3 played very well, the rest were average. I love how Sam Curran has evolved into a cracking T20 all rounder, one of the first names on the team sheet now.

Superb knock from Bairstow, if he wanted to open, he's just proved he's good at 4.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Wood come in for CurranT tomorrow.
