warner bowled

he is in all sorts of trouble this tournament

swap him with khawaja and have him come in later as a pinch hitter

Why was that?

Scoring too slowly?

yep
if the gap between run and balls was 20 less than it was by the end of the 30th its a very different chase. A lot of our middle and lower order had to overcompensate for warner's stodginess since the run rate ballooned to unacceptable levels

warners plodding also means we dont get the best out of khawaja

if khawaja opens he's a 6rpo player averaging over 50

lower down he's not much use to be honest

100 of 80 almost makes up for the 36 of 58 from Warner/Khawaja

Do people think there is something in this pitch?
