From the chic to the ridiculous….that’s how England performs ODI cricket. On just right days (admittedly there are extra of them) they’re exceptionally just right. On unhealthy days…they’re shockingly unhealthy. #WIvEng

Oshane Thomas Five-21 vs the worlds No1 crew. I don’t begrudge him in any respect. When he has to bowl on this sort of just right batting floor in Grenada one sport in the past. Then make hay and so forth whilst you get on a bouncy one. How’s England’s batting in Odi’s when the pitch isn’t a batting paradise?
