Despite my misgivings about our test side, our ODI side is fucking brilliant these days. We used to struggle chasing 250.

47 from 30 balls with 4 wickets remaining counts as a balls up I'm afraid.

Lots of chat about Gayle's 160 from 97 but fuck all about Buttlers 150 off 77 with 12 sixes?

Come the fuck on

A odi century is almost reaching the worth of a test 50. It does make me think that for years our English batsmen thought an odi century was harder to come by. These days it's just a byproduct of sensible batting on a flat track. Genuinely, Boycott probably would have got over a dozen this day and age batting at four.

As for the lasting effect of the odi series, I don't see the need to be sniffy - can you meticulously recount the last five away tour test results in the West Indies? I can give you a guess at a few.

What is annoying is turning a five odi series into a total slogfest. For five games you should have a pacy wicket, a bouncy wicket, a spinners deck, a slow one and a swinging one, adjusted for the local conditions of course

Australia win the ODi series in India 3-2 after being 2-0 down.

Interesting in that India are still seen as being England's biggest threat in the tournament, have lost to a team that England virtually humiliated in their last series against them*
