West Indies have done better in this game but have also let themselves down in the field. The seamers were over bowled yesterday because their skipper has no idea how to use the spinners/doesn’t trust them. They were then ground to dust by England’s late order. I suppose the game is played differently here to in the Caribbean, but they didn’t make the most of their opportunities yesterday, either by poor bowling changes or dropping catches.
I hope England win today, so the selectors are more inclined to play a couple of wild cards. I would really like to see Mason Crane ( Adil Rashid is out of favour), we can’t go to Oz with just the one twirler. Hales at 3 may be worth a try, although I’d prefer him at five and Root favours Gary Banister who is probably also a better 5.
