Good. It's not his game.Why has Moeen Ali been included? He's either fit for international cricket or he isn't. How many lives does this guy get? Sends all the wrong messages to up & coming young talent.
Root is not a T20 batsman and should not be anywhere near an England T20 squad. It’s a game for explosive power hitters not nudges and nurdles.
@126 So Denly is taking his chance and is a great asset. Let's hope he keeps up his amazing form, if his T20 batting average dropped below it's current 11.5 the Denly haters might complain. Still, nothing to say for now, as long as he keeps belting out the massive scores.
It's not a contest batting on complete roads... a spinning dustbowl would be very entertaining.
Spin isn't going to be big deal in the world T20 in Aus so Root's usp on canny run accumulator plus slightly better than average spinner might not be that much use.YJB and Malan have joined Roy,Morgan and Buttler in the top 5. With Stokes at 6 and the hitters.England's power but lack of skill won't be such a disadvantage in Aus where aggression wins out.Ali's in last chance saloon
Good idea to let Root concentrate on tests.Squad looks well balanced. Pity the Denly-haters here have to have a go. He has deserved his chance for a long time, is getting it, taking it, and is a great asset for England. Yes he lost concentration for a second with that drop. It happens even to the best. Botham, Randall, Flintoff they have all dropped easy ones. Get over it.
121 daryl ridley: Leave him out off all 3 formats? In his most recent test innings he got a double hundred or can't you remember back that far?
it is t20 world cup year in 2020 so a side that can compete to lift that trophy must be identified & stuck with to a point!, the odi's are the time to experiment & try untested players, also there is also plans for another t20 world cup in 2021 too!.roybairstowhalesrootmorgan(c)buttler(wk)stokes(vc)woakesrashidarcherwood(moeen, jordan, s curran, t.curran)my squad.
Clearly planning for next years T20 WC, no Butler, Stokes or Archer in 50ov ODI squad that defence is 4 years away plenty of time to look at new players
@118 due to a terrible umpiring decision and a South African off spinner...
