Shaun on ESPN makes an intersting point......."Broad is England's 2nd highest wicket taker through virtue of just being there & not because he got there in less tests than others. His average of 29 (Majority matches in English conditions) makes him quite average in the world of international bowlers." Sorry Stuart, those 437 wickets don't count according to Shaun!
So England’s World Cup winning quintet playing this game are all decent batsmen but scored 7 runs between them.
The two bowlers took 1 wicket in 14.2 overs while the rest of the team managed 9 in 44.
Can’t think of any other team sport where you’re playing again less than a fortnight after the World Cup, and it shows. So tough to go from 8 weeks of white ball and 2 weeks of celebrating into a 4 day slog
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
