hope the loss of khawaja and marsh hasn't cost us the cup!

We are probably 25 runs short of where we need to be!

meanwhile a 5th bowler like richardson would have been better than stoinis in hindsight

I’d say the opposite. Wade instead of Stoinis would have been good

Bairstow seems to play it late as though waiting till the last moment to execute the shot.

Dorff going past the outside edge from an out swinger  the  right hander after  swinging a few in.

He needs to  get early wickets, as he isn't much chop with an older ball.

Beautiful off drive for 4 from Roy.

Good Bairstow cut for 4 off Starc.

England looking ominous at 0-24 compared to Oz at about 2-13 at the same stage of the game.

Dunno about that, Roy could have been out off that flick for 6

Cummins straight  into the attack with 140 KPH plus deliveries with good line and length .

We need wickets though.

Dorff changes end.

It was reasonably close.

As Athers and Mel Jones are  saying on TV, Roy is like an Indian batter with his wristy technique.
