Bit harsh when chasing such a low total. Could they even have got centuries when they were dismissed?

Jonny Bairstow is a more fitting entry to this thread for the Scotland game given the match context, even if he made a 100.

Maybe we could start a "pretty little centuries" thread?

we could have a generic “pretty little score that on paper is decent but given the match situation you’d really want them to push on and make something more substantial to put their team in a dominant position” thread but it’s not quite as snappy

Morgan yes - think he was on 69 with 64 still to go when dismissed, and scoring more quickly than Root in the partnership.

Root, well its just another easy as you like 50 ended with a waft outside off stump.

Now 5 ODI tons in his 60 matches compared to IR Bellís 4 in 160. Roy has still flattered to deceive though.

Maybe, but he averages nearly 40 at over a run a ball. Pretty good for an opener.

Buttler ends up with the entry on here.

I guess I have the sad duty to beat Ali to the task of adding Jason Roy to this, especially getting run out for 82.

Travis Head probably deserves a mention on here. 10 x 50 in ODIs, only once tonned up.

Morgan with his dismissal off a full toss a deserving entry onto this thread with his 53.

Virat Kohli, who just couldn't go on to get a century.

The top 3 in the current Sri Lanka v South Africa test all reach scores of fifty or above but no tons. The rest of the line-up didn't get above 22 individually by the close of play.

It should really be out of scope but I canít help myself. Joe Root couldnít get over the line for Yorkshire in the Roses t20 game so another effort duly added.
