Perhaps there should be a Joe Root Pretty Little Fifties thread.

From ODIs:

Root: 10 hundreds 23 fifties

Bell: 4 hundreds 34 fifties

He's got a way to go yet!

Jason Roy sees out his international year in a similarish sort of way as he started the year with a quickfire 84. Many of you will of course know that he would get a series of 50+ scores without converting in India and then in the West Indies before totally losing his form at home and getting dropped. To me though he remains a fine talent.

How can I possibly quite leave out a valedictory effort from Ian Bell. It is harsh that he should gain yet another entry as it appears 77* is a fine effort in a very low scoring game but hey, it's his thread!

And diametrically opposite to this thread's purpose is the legend that is Kumar Sangakkara who now bows out of first class cricket.

1492 runs at 106.50. 8 tons and 2 50s.

@CricProf
Tamim Iqbal and Faf du Plessis have the most amount of fifties (6) in 2017 without going on to make a century.

England start as they mean to carry on today thanks to Stoneman and Vince.

Stoneman continues his run of a 50+ score in every tour innings. Shame he ruined it with a ton in the last warm up.

good to see this thread being updated folks! I've missed it so.

Anyway for a bit of fun who do you reckon will be the scorer of the most 50s this series? I'll go for YJB

How many 50s will Vince need this series for this thread to be renamed after him?

Perhaps a bit harsh to mention Root's innings today on this thread. But I was going to say something about his conversion rate before he got out. It was the commentators, also referring to it, who said "it's something he will want to rectify". This is how commentators speak about the players who can't ever be criticised directly

It is left to us message-boarders to do the task on their behalf I couldn't help thinking it was a major aspect that would hurt England in this series and this match is hardly disproving the theory. Warning signs were there in the warm-ups and Bayliss was critical of the batsmen then. It is reasonable to criticise the likes of Vince and to a lesser extent Stoneman too when the job wasn't finished in the 1st innings. There are a number of other times in recent memory where a careless dismissal in the 50s has cost us. In particular I can't help thinking of the 2nd test of the India series last year where not only did Root run-out Hameed, he then played a careless shot and got out and England slumped badly after he did so. The 2nd test v South Africa at Trent Bridge, similarly so without running out a team-mate. Oh and you mentioned being worried about Cook looking shot on the match thread, I have mentioned this for some time and a few others have too. Never performed that well against good quality quicks for some time and I don't see him rectifying this over the rest of this tour.

Crikey what have you got against him? Think almost all your posts since the return have had a subtle dig at Root.

Iíve nothing against Root at all. The recent number of unconverted fifties have been mentioned by quite a few people, but the media seem reluctant to comment.

Almost all my posts since the return?? 39 posts. Two mentioning Root including the one youíve just replied to.

Spot on. Steve Smith showed them how to do it. Application. Watch and learn boys, if you cannot learn from this you don't deserve to play Test cricket.
