    These two are bowling beautifully. The pitch seems to lack pace so these medium pacer can do a great job bowling line and length.

    Get Tahir to have a crack, it's SA's best chance. Pace, especially medium pace, will get slaughtered here if Morgan and Buttler get in.

    This is what we were all looking for. We were all fed up of an all out Assault by the english batsmen recently.. Oh Boy!. What the pressure of a world cup match and some good bowling does. Yes it makes cricket exciting.. Rather than seeing 2 teams smash each other all over the park and the match delivering 750 plus runs. This is much better!

    You can walts back into the game. Stokes can bat like Misba Ul haq at times lol Keep him and use spinners against Morgan and Buttler. Once they are gone you can run through them. You need Buttler no matter what. He can destroy any bowling if he gets going.

    This is the beauty. You can always stage a come back wiith 2 quick wickets. Having strike forces in the middle overs is a big bonus. You can capitalize on the pressure of new batsman.

    ICC have there own curators in WC and every team has home advantage similar to India in 2011 and Australia in 2015.

    Rabdaa is a good test match bowler. He is not yet a full-fledged ODI bowler yet as he doesn't have enough good variations. Still a great bowler who can produce beauty of delivery out of nowhere.

    Experienced bowlers will be they key especially if the pitches are not gonna offer much and probably will be the case with most of the pitches.

    The way Ngidi is going and Shaheen have bowled in Eng till now shows that. They need to learn quickly to create an impact in the tournament.

    markham and duminy bowling...just shows this world cup we need to pack our batting. Hafeez..malik..fakhar and Haris if he plays are more than enough to get 10 overs in...which means there is no need for both imad and Shadab to play...but i KNOW for a fact both will and mess the balance of the team

    Root v Roy

    Root is the accumulator and Roy is the enforcer in this batting line-up, so they have different roles.

    If we want to assess who's better I would look at their respect batting index, which can be derived from adding their averages and strike rates.


    Root

    Career Stats:

    Average: 50.47 & Strike Rate: 87.15
    Batting Index: 137.62

    2019:

    Average: 39.33 & Strike Rate: 98.61
    Batting Index: 137.94

    Roy

    Career Stats:

    Average: 40.80 & Strike Rate: 106.29
    Batting Index: 147.09

    2019:

    Average: 80.40 & Strike Rate: 121.45
    Batting Index: 201.85

    Pretty clear to see who's the bigger asset with the bat for England in ODIs.

    Not only that rabada is skillful heís proven it everywhere every now and than so itís not something you can even put up for debate he even was the number ranked bowler for quite some time in international cricket now some will say rashid khan is number 2 by playing minnows hat rankings donít prove anything but rabada got that ranking by playing good sides so it does prove something

    You need atleast one proper spinner in the team. SA is also playing tahir, Duminy and Markham arent good enough to bowl 10 overs in between then in every match and that is why SA is playing 4 pacers out of which two can bat and one spinner, Duminy and Markham are just to fill in overs.

    I dont think you can these days on these flat wickets, you just need bowlers who bowl well. you cant hide anyone anymore batsmen will target you whenever you bowl.

    The way Ngidi is going and Shaheen have bowled in Eng till now shows that. They need to learn quickly to create an impact in the tournament.
    But I do believe Hafeez supported by Haris and Malik can be a decent 5th bowling option if they want to drop one of the spinners.

    This world cup is going to be dull , high scoring matches with no love for the bowlers.


    It is either a heartache or a headache ..Argh relationships.

    I saw someone's coment on fb

    Amir or Husnain say attack krwayain.
    Amir say longer spell krwaya jaye 4-6 overs ka.

    Husnain agar achi bowling krta hy to Powerplay k end tk lga rehny dain.

    Powerplay k foran baad Hafeez ko ly aana chahiye Hassan Ali k saath. 18 over k baad Shadab or Haris ko b ly aayain.

    25 over complete honay k baad wahab ko kisi ek spinner k saath continue krain.

    Or Wahab k saath Amir ka ek short spell krwayain 35 say 40 over tk.

    Hasan or Husnain say 40 say 45 tk over krwany k baad aakhri 5 dubara Amir or Wahab finish krain.

    If we want to assess who's better I would look at their respect batting index, which can be derived from adding their averages and strike rates.



    Root

    Career Stats:

    Average: 50.47 & Strike Rate: 87.15
    Batting Index: 137.62

    2019:

    Average: 39.33 & Strike Rate: 98.61
    Batting Index: 137.94

    Roy

    Career Stats:

    Average: 40.80 & Strike Rate: 106.29
    Batting Index: 147.09

    2019:

    Average: 80.40 & Strike Rate: 121.45
    Batting Index: 201.85

    Pretty clear to see who's the bigger asset with the bat for England in ODIs.
    Roots the first name of the team sheet for England management.

    Andile bowling well. Sad he's been labelled as a quota player.

    Thought his performances v Pakistan would've been a slice of humble pie.

    No that's Morgan, but I'm not interested in who's the first name in the England team sheet, this is about Root v Roy because I see a lot of armchair experts firing away with no credible insight whatsoever.

    If Plunkett is coming in at 10...thats a diamond gun line up....I guess 320+ is on the cards, flat deck, good outfield, 2 new balls....et al.....i'd still back Faf and Saf to chase whatever Eng put on the board...Eng bowling ain't that hot....lets see what Archer has to offer though-will be xciting to c him...

    Feel that SAF could do with another proper spinner with Tahir for these middle overs.

    Take pace off the ball.

    I don't think so Root is England's favourite son. Maybe I'm slightly biased as he's from Sheffield like myself.

    I always find it surprising that cricket broadcast never shows a small radar showing field placements considering what an important part of the game is that. As a viewer I would love to know where fielders are placed and thus what kind of shots batsmen can try.
