That was my impression as well, I thought they mentioned it in the other game.

Let's hope Malan hasn't won and lost the game in the same over.

Much better field from QDK for the last over here compared to Englands although a deep mid wicket could move to the off side as well. Squeaky bum time.

Got there in the end. A tricky game but both sides kept it interesting.

Class matchwinning innings from Malan.

Rashid excellent again too.

PS. Do you mean “defiantly” or “definitely”? Both would apply.
Done by a spell checker. Again England got out of a hole Tom Curran put them in, how much longer can it go on?

As it happened, Sam Curran had a far worse day today. Taken off after 2 expensive overs and not brought back, 1 run with the bat when all he had to do was help see England home. Let’s hope they both do better on Tuesday.

Assuming they both get picked although I think they will.

This England team looks close to ideal, with players now showing the benefits of honing their skills in the IPL. Malan really showed that today, yet the modest target they were chasing was because the bowling is so good.

This looks like their strongest XI - particularly in terms of winning mentality.

They're going to need a second spinner for a World Cup in India. That they're not trying one here on a pitch offering assistance is odd.

Depends - if your second spinner in the squad isn't as good as Tom Curran then of limited value to play them here.

Maybe for the dead rubber they could give another bowler a chance - Topley perhaps ? Livingston isn't in the T20 squad.

Think you have to question Roy's place. We have better.

Does anyone know where things stand (well kneel) with regards to support of BLM during this series? Is it still happening, or has it just wilted away?

Billings the only other option in the T20 squad.

Roy def not looked in his form of 2018/2019

I know South Africa decided not to kneel, from what I remember England stopped after the West Indies went home.

..... However, the other day I’m sure I heard a commentator say the black armbands were for all the victims of Covid....
