Carey and Maxwell I gather one century between them before that game. England got a bit too carried away by early wickets, and perhaps overbowled Root who got them a couple of cheap wickets but I doubt was the 'master plan' before the game.

as it entered the final couple of overs I thought as Carey got out that mightn't be for the best for the aussies, put two who could just hit out, play shots, no trying to be tactical or overcook the situation and Starc just hits it for six when numpty put Rashid on

Of course if Root hadn't been bowled on for so many overs Rashid might well have been bowled earlier, maybe even bowled better and not had any overs left. Rashid was the only bowler on either side to go at over 7.5 an over........


Pretty sure for Buttler's only catch the commentator called him "safe hands", where has he been all summer.....??!?! England weren't brilliant with ball or in the field, quite possibly complacency mixed with fear of pitching up.

Can only echo what others have said. Morgan was right to try Rashid in the 48th as he needed a wicket. But he didn't in the 50th, he could have defended 10 runs and Curran could have done that.

Root bowled for too long, allowed Carey and Maxwell to get set. The Aussies rode their luck (no ball and Buttler drop) but fair play to Maxwell and Carey for an excellent chase. Ironically, had we not taken the 5th wicket and left Labuschagne in for longer, I suspect we'd have won.

Thanks to the Aussies for coming, been some entertaining cricket and they've given us 2 wonderful chokes. Concerning that Smith was still groggy yesterday nearly a week after the incident.

A match too far for England - and they still nearly won it.

Next tournament is T20 - need to focus on that.

Noticed Mark Wood didn't bowl his full allocation and he only went for 4.4 an over. Not good management of bowlers.

The overbowling of Root, Rashid being brought on too late, underbowling of Curran and thus meaning that Wood and Curran probably didn't get the overs they should have done were some issues. I myself argued that Root should have bowled a few overs before yesterday's innings but I wouldn't have thought that meant he needed to bowl his 8. Yes, he's capable of wangling a few wickets here and there, but Morgan made the mistake of keeping him on and throwing everyone else too far out of sync.

It's the Ali approach - Morgan gets excited by some low RR filler in the middle overs at the expense of wickets.

Root took a couple early but then he was being milked.

He did bring back Jofra and Wood - and it nearly worked - but should have had Rashid on earlier.

Coverage by BBC TV will have benefited the game, and Sky did their usual superb job. England are lucky to have great pools of talent to call on - OK, Eoin made the wrong call at the end, but armchair captaincy is very easy. He and Joe Root captain great teams, and you can’t win ‘em all. It’s been so enjoyable I almost forgot there were no crowds.
Thanks for this post, Redrose ... I too have loved the cricket this summer ... thanks to BBC radio and the team there ... and thanks indeed to Sky because that meant even though I couldn't watch it at home I could watch it latterly and briefly in pubs ... indeed, you can't win 'em all.
