Question is for @Alex

 

Can Bairstow still fuck off? 

 

Didn’t see it through to the close.

Joking apart though, he’s shown he’s a devastating one day batsman on a road of a pitch. Which is what this was and what the ODI team usually bat on. I don’t think he’s the answer based on his test career. When it’s moving about he struggles and he gets bowled far too often. It would be churlish not to acknowledge what an unbelievable innings that was though. I do think of you are going to play him you have to let him play with freedom though. Which the captain and coach have clearly done.

I was just being a twat. :lol:

 

I do wonder if he'll benefit from being part of a more positive setup though. Do you reckon the England of 6 months ago would have won that or got stuck hedging their bets.

I think they’d have lost by not being positive as soon as they’d conceded all those 1st innings runs @Gemmill

Exactly.  Would have played for a draw, even with the match poised as it was on the final day, and lost by 100+ runs

Never thought I’d say this about an ODI but I’ll be disappointed if they don’t get 500 here
