Poor commentary on sky claiming they should show intent, take risks and not look to be not out. 42 off 204 required… the only sensible thing to do is knock singles and secure the not out and win. They are trying too hard to be controversial on comms

When in doubt, pad thy stats. Not often chances like this come about in international cricket.

79.0 ODI

Is he going to do this Dawid Malan thing on ODI too (compared to List A - the same thing he's done with T20I compared to his T20 stats. Shame he couldn't pull this off in Tests compared to FC though)
Probably struggled against the moving ball from Ishant. I was surprised he was dropped mid series against India in 2018. He actually scored an Ashes hundred the same year few months ago.

Yes, but 15 test matches is a fair chunk. You'd prefer 25 test matches to be sure. In that sense perhaps there's still leeway to try him again for 10 more tests. I feel like if you're averaging sub 31ish after 25 tests then it's goodnight Irene. Right now he's averaging 27.85 from 15 tests which isn't happy viewing. Shame as he's clearly a great player. Suppose it's to bear in mind he only averages 38.43 in FC. But that being said he doesn't seem to care much about T20 and List A stats in comparison to T20I and ODI.

Are Salt and Vince at the same team in The Hundred? Great chance for KP to make some custom crisps to sell to the Mum's and children.
