Hopefully doing an Imrul Kayes. Got through his usual slow start so maybe today he can find some form.

When it’s turning like this you gotta pick your moment and come down the track and you gotta sweep. You can’t just camp on the crease and hope they miss their length.

Yea i think there needs to be a bit more productivity when facing the spinners, but i think we have to appreciate how hard this is. Some of the deliveries have been really impressive. Zuhwao's delivery nipped very late. I think Taylor's shot was really poor, as was Ervine's, both just playing down the wrong line but again, the spin is so pronounced. We need an actual strategy, whether it be the sweep or hitting over the top

Man that was such a poor shot :( He was looking as good as I've seen for ages there, Moor. That cover drive was probably shot of the innings. He's clearly getting more and more comfortable at this level but i wish he'd play his shots more, such a natural striker of the ball

I’m a bit behind as I taped it. Complete misread from BT, PJ is slowly proving his worth.
I didn’t see Mavuta bowl, I see he was expensive, has the pitch deteriorated in the second innings?

Game was lost in the last 10 overs we bowled. They should have never scored more than 220.

Ya it’s a 220 pitch for sure. Without that 140 this would have been a tight game.
