Yeah, there's no need to try and flog everything for six when you're chasing sub 300 scores.
Jonny Bairstow has hit out at Michael Vaughan and Kevin Petersen, who've both slammed England's approach. He's maintaining that the new 'Brand England' invented by Trevor Bayliss is the way forward.

Now if even KP is saying we should think about it a bit rather than try to belt every other ball over the stands is telling. KP had a far more astute cricket brain than the establishment gave him credit for, and he was hung out to dry by them.

The flat tracks in England on which 400 is a possibility are produced by English groundsmen. The pitches in the world cup are produced by the ICC who always go for a more even contest between bat and ball. And this on top of shit weather which inevitably gives the bowler more of a chance.

No, it's been brain-dead cricket. Fantastic for Morgan to hit those 6's. But it was Afghanistan ffs. The cricketing equivalent of Southend United. What's he done since ? In fact apart from that game and a decent contribution against Sarf Ifrica in the opener, it's been jack shit. And his captaincy has been questionable too.

Trevor Bayliss's last hoorah, this and the ashes.

A very clever ploy.

He's a fucking Aussie.
Bairstow's comments were bullshit anyway. No fucker was waiting for England to lose, but you can't play like shit and then moan about criticism.
Vaughn was 100% on the money.

I still fancy we'll walk the Ashes. Australia haven't been able to bat in English conditions for a decade, and there's no sign that's changed.

Here we go.

Jason Roy is England's key man. Shit without him, imperious with him.

Nothing better than smashing the Aussies kickimmuts . :lol:
