Baller move, retraining as a specialist spinner for this game to exact revenge

Probably more like 45 overs now

Lovely ball, tbf.

If they keep going for these big sixes off Rashid I expect Australia will reach their target with something to spare.

We really did our bit with the anti-bants today. This defeat is purely on the players

Could have had 3 players bringing up a century with a 6 in the same ODI but Alex Carey ruined it

Would be even sweeter than the full collapse if the Aussies fucked it from here.

Come on Joffra.

Mark Wood.

Woof

Rashid to finish. Ballsy.

Oh Morgan.

I donโ€™t understand why heโ€™s not gone with Curran

I donโ€™t think anyone else does either.

Bollocks.

Think Morgan got too clever for his own good at a couple of points, Rashid not bowling early enough, then doing the last over.

Not his fault that we lost our first 2 wickets in 2 balls (even if Root not soaking up balls might have been a blessing) or that we dropped catches.

Begrudging respect to Carry and Maxwell.

WOOHOO!!

I thought England had won it when Carey got out and they needed 10 off the final over but then I heard Rashid was going to bowl the final over. I can see why Morgan did it, Starc could have easily hit one up in the air trying to clear the long boundary and there was no guarantee Curran would not have conceded 10 but it definitely wasnโ€™t playing the percentages

If Carey was still in I think heโ€™d have gone with Curran, I think he just gambled that 2 new batsman might struggle to pick Rashid.

Keaton Jennings hair is just magnificent

Good powerplay that! Should be a great platform (I am so so sorry)
