    Middle order bowling atrocious.
    Still batsmen bailing out this team.
    Keep producing these 350+ pitches and we will come unstuck in WC. 358 should never be considered a par score.

    Quick outfield, small boundaries, two new balls. The game is set up for batsmen. Our bowlers no worse than any others. Also remember Archer wasn't playing yday.

    Been an ongoing issue that the quicks can't take wickets in middle overs. Stokes is just fodder bowling. Large % of Plunkett wickets catches in the deep whilst consistently going for 6/7 an over.
    Off day for England batting 1st in WC and it's going to be all over.
    Balance isn't right atm.

    6/7 an over is good in today's game!

    Archer looks like exactly what were missing, I think he is what we have missed in the past 2 tours down under. Watched a lot of him in the IPL and he was unbelievable at the death.

    We won at a canter yesterday without Rashid, Archer & Buttler. Bairstow carrying his excellent IPL form through to the Pakistan series.

    ODI cricket can be won and lost by any team on its day, hope we get a couple of tougher tracks in the next couple of warm ups.

    I believe Stokes was injured so did not bowl much. he's a very good bowler for breaking up partnerships.
    Very few bowlers are much good on batting wickets.
    Surprised Archer has been omitted from last two games. Hopefully that means he is definitely in.
    England had some luck in the last ODI. Without all the dropped catches, the result could have been different.

    It could have been. But England never drop that many catches. It's not luck!

    Getting ridiculous when pundits are debating whether a score of 500+ is possible on today's pitch.
    Still should always aim to be a reasonable contest between bat and ball.

    100 in 50 balls and then a duck.
    This is why cricket is always interesting.
