Vince gone for 10.

Can't believe that Bopara is batting ahead of Roy.

Are we any quicker over the first 20 overs. No, just the normal score at 20 overs which is roughly about 100. England 98/1. I would expect us to be 200 at 40 overs.

I can't believe that Lions need to play Ravi in this at all. What the blazes are they learning about him that they don't already know in the loads of ODIs that he's played?

Batting higher up so not considered to be a finisher anymore? Maybe looking to fit him in at number 3 in the Trott spot.

Cook
Bell
Bopara
Ballance
Root
Morgan
Buttler

Many people want something like this..

Hales
Roy
Vince
Root
Morgan
Bopara
Buttler

The problem is that he has tried to play in other roles, having played a number of matches in the top 3 or 4. He had 6 previous games at no.3 and was rather pants. His most convincing records are in the middle.

Hales gets his 100 and then gets out. England's 200 in the 37th over. Earlier than expected mainly because no wickets were falling and players weren't taking time to play themselves in. 23 runs ahead at 40 overs. Roy comes in at the right time for him to go at 10 an over till the end.

Now Bopara goes for 74.

Roy .4.461

Now 6666.6 (51 off 22 balls)
