However, I've watched England a number of times over the last four years and they look fantastic playing this way. Unfortunately, they can lose their heads and sometimes in difficult battling conditions when you need to stick around for a bit and play sensibly for a few overs we can get skittled out easily as a team.
Mind you I do like our approach and its what has served us well in the majority of the games we have played over this World Cup cycle. Roy is an absolute pleasure to watch and what I really like is the flourish he does with his wrist at the end of some of his shots.
The Lords pitch because of its slope does help swing bowlers and one thing Roy and Bairstow dont like is the ball moving back into them. Bairstow is particular vunerable with his strong bottom right hand.
Credit to the team though for bouncing back in the fashion they did when they needed two wins to even qualify for the semi-finals.
But other than that, you're happy we made the World Cup Final?
Tbh, i think i said that when I said "awesome display" and "credit to the team for bouncing back in the fashion they did".
I Just feel our vuneraility as a side is when we lose a wicket. Instead of re-grouping for a few overs, sometimes, we chase the ball to our own downfall. Its just an opinion l have from watching the team.
