    Ben Stokes' 50 of 103 balls against India - Worst ODI innings of the decade?

    Could not rotate the strike, could not hit boundaries. It is probably the worst ODI inning of the last decade.

    England failed to bat full 50 overs. Stokes built a good partnership with Buttler to help England get to 268. Without Stokes innings, England would have struggled to make 200-220 even. Nowhere close to the worst ODI innings. More like a average ODI innings

    Slowest 50 by an Englishman in a decade, what does that tell you?

    Buttler was batting at 100+ SR without breaking a sweat and Stokes SR was hovering around 40.

    That has to be the ultimate worst innings of all time by a pretty pateechar player and we rewarded him by making him captain for half a decade.

    He did a repair job but a 50 in 103 is not excusable under any context, against any opposition on any pitch.

    However, his prolonged misery allowed England to bat 50 overs and have a minute chance of salvaging something from this game.

    he stopped a collapse. had he gone guns blazing England might have been shot out fr 200.

    they have a chance to defending 268 especially if they can get Kohli cheaply.

    It was bad innings, but he was the only one who made over 50. The rest of Pak's batsmen were awful and it wasn't because they were forced to slog, just look at their strike rates, 70s, 40s, 30s.

    And even then Misbah brought his strike rate above 70.

    Here Ben stokes scored at a less than 50 SR when his team mates are scoring 100 SR, a set batsman at the other end in Butler, and no real pressure (as this isn't a world cup or decider).

    Misbah played a bad mohali innings, but he didn't negatively cost the team. The rest of our batsmen did bad too. Just Misbah didn't play an innings to give his team a chance. Had Misbah had got out first ball, result would have been the same, in fact we'd probably have put up a lower total of runs if anything.

    I think the worst sort of long innings are like Shehzad's one. I remember it was against West Indies and Shehzad was chasing a lowish total and played so slow that it forced the guys near the end to hit out at the end to win the game. Took a no pressure chase into a pressurised one.

    Worst innings though is probably an innings where you don't score anything yet waste a lot of balls when your team isn't in a dire situation when wickets are not falling. Misbah and Stokes innings aren't that, but I'm sure there's plenty of examples of that.

    Seeing how India are cruising along without breaking a sweat, Stokes innings was pathetic. It did not amount to anything just like the CT semi-final. He averages 38 with the ball with over 6 ER. He does not offer much in ODIs. The all-rounder spot should go to Moeen who is a better bowler. Hales should come back as an opener.

    It's funny because Younis played an equally terrible innings yet no one points the finger at him despite the torture we had to bear in watching him bat in ODIs for the next 5 years and terrible character.

    At least Misbah restored our honor.

    My sense is his inning will have the full backing of England dressing room and that's all that matters. He is struggling to get in form, shots not coming thru, had a terrible IPL and needs time in the middle to get some confidence back. Would be foolish to think that england or india is takng this series as anything more than an opportunity to get their line ups crystalised and important players back in form.

    Weirdly and absurd as it may sound , I kinda agree. Feels like both teams arenít caring much about this game and rather trying their combinations for the World Cup. Iím allís itís positive England will come back 10 times stronger next game.

    Shows you difference in class of batting between Buttler and Stokes, considering Buttler was batting at such a high strike rate.

    Buttler has established himself as the most valuable LO player for England.

    Don't you know the reason for that? As explained so eloquently over novel-length posts by PP's resident expert. That was due to PCB conspiring with the curators to transport a dead and dry pitch from Karachi for the match. If the match was played in true English conditions England would have scored 500 and ol' Benny would have been first Englishman to score 200. Kyun @Mamoon sahi bola meine?

    I saw a bit and he was simply not able to read spinners. If anyone plays 50(100) kind of knock, it becomes much harder for others to compensate to push total score near 100. Having said that, I am not sure if Eng would have even reached 250 if Stokes had not faced 100 balls.

    Worst ODI innings of the decade is a huge over reaction. England were collapsing against spin, he had to be a bit more reserved and without him England probably wouldn't have even got 250.

    Stokes was matching Buttlerís scoring until the latter got out.

    After that he had to bat in the anchor role so he slowed down. Without his go-slow England might have been all out for 230.

    It was not just spinners, he was not able to hit pacers as well.

    What difference did it make eventually? The point is these slow innings do not amount to anything in this batting friendly era. Batsman taking a chance and batting at higher SR may actually turn the game on its head as opposed to these slow 50s.
