Amla in but Morris misses out for South Africa. Big call considering he is a gun bowler at the death and the sort of guy who can also make a big impact with the bat in a short space of time. Phehlukwayo has been good over the past year or so, so I'm guessing they didn't see room for them both in an XI.

Sri Lanka cricket continues its typical stable path. Malinga dumped as captain, Karunaratne now the lucky owner of that title. Apparently no room for Chandimal, Tharanga, Dananjaya and Dickwella :think:

Amir missed out for Pakistan.

Not much spin options there. Guess we know their approach this campaign.

With Alex Hales now dropped from the England squad, today's match against Ireland may be an audition to replace him.
Dharmasena having a shocker here.

The Foakes stumping is, yeah, not sure about that.

Rule 20.1.1 says the ball is dead when the ball is settled in the hands of the wicketkeeper. Surely commonsense comes into play - Balbirnie wasn't attempting to run, it wasn't in the motion of the stroke. Doesn't feel right to me.

Ireland with a copy and paste job again. Bat poorly, knock over the opposition's top order for not many and then let the game get away. The amount of winning position's they've fumbled this decade is ridiculous.

Their batting was poor, but a quality bowling effort let down by the non-review and a poorly timed dropped catch. I think England are going to catch many teams out with that deceptive tail with guys of the ilk of Foakes, Curran, Woakes, Plunkett, Willey & possibly Archer. Murtagh is a class performer, going to be a shame next year as a result of the political turmoil over there that Irish players will then be classified as overseas in county cricket. Murtagh, Stirling & Balbirnie all at Middlesex.

Archer performed ok, was always going to be hard for him to live up to the hype but was a solid if not spectacular effort. Plunkett looked good, bowled quicker than we have seen him in recent times. Hard to see how Foakes can fit into the lineup, but he's exactly the sort of player who performs against the grain in the event of a collapse like we saw. I think he'd be great insurance for them.

Most opposition teams will be well aware of what England's tail is capable of in most formats. The managers all use data.

Oh for sure, everyone should be more than aware of their capabilities. But my point was more that 6-100 is not such a disastrous situation for England to be in compared to other sides - you've got to really land that final knockout blow, something which as impressively disciplined the Ireland bowling lineup is they aren't quite capable of.

Yeah, well as this guy said, he wasn't trying to steal a run, and he was in his crease when the keeper took it....

Buttler was doing was every batsman does and no wonder people are upset, he wasn't stealing a run, as it shows he is still in his crease and if Ashwin bowled it, he probably leaves his crease after the ball has been released.

Not the first and won’t be the last batsman to get stumped because he loses his footing.

Not sure how anyone can compare a mankad to a stumping...

I recall various cases of Matt Prior, Brad Haddin and Matt Wade trying it, although those names might be wrong aside from Haddin, and it's never been in doubt that it could be out. I think it's a pretty shitty thing to do but Foakes isn't the first or last to do it and it's only raised an eye lid because it's happened so soon after the mankad

The comparison is this. Peoplw lose their **** over a mankad, where a batter is dismissed when trying to get an unfair advantage. But this stumping occurs when the play has stopped and the batter is just resuming his upright position and people say stiff bikkies.

If I was the umpire I would have said not out, the ball was dead.

Anyway, not a big issue. Play on.
