Official thread - 1st ODI, Rose Bowl

One-day internationals England
by betting_guru (U1779520) 22 June 2010
comment on the article

On a perfect summer’s day at Hampshire’s Rose Bowl, England kick off a five-match one-day series against Australia at 1430 BST.

Last time England played a one-day series against Ricky Ponting’s men, who were in fact marshalled by Michael Clarke for the first couple of games, they finished up on the wrong end of a 6-1 hiding.

This time, Australia’s bowling attack looks transitional and their batting unit is not firing on all cylinders, but it would be a brave man to confidently predict an England series success.

Can Kieswetter make the opening berth his own for the World Cup? Is Yardy’s second coming a decisive move? Or will the skills of Cameron White and Nathan Hauritz prove too much for Andrew Strauss’s men?

As ever, your comments are most welcome.

Morgan Motm.

Top top knock. A truly world class player. This guy can play any shot. He is getting better and better. He always had the shots and skill. Recently his temperament has really progressed. brilliant innings.

Morgan is far and away MotM, but Luke Wright comes close.

I'm English, but just find it hard to take pride in a patently multi-national side - without the Saffers and Morgan we'd get stuffed and we all know it !

every single person in the england team is eligible to play for england

who gives a toss where they were born , they have all got a british parent and have chosen to represent england

i suppose you would prefer to live in a country that discriminates against its own citizens ?

Was at game. Watson copped some abuse after his bowling stints.

Lot of the Hampshire regulars were moaning about KP but he got a good reception overall.

Also Ponting got a close to standing ovation when he came out to bat.

Pretty good atmosphere. Most seats filled.

Infrastructure was overstretched at Rose Bowl though.
