At this rate, let’s hope it is a nothing game and is not recorded anywhere - the Sweaties look like they are on for a shock win. Well deserved if they do, and whilst it is a different format, England aren’t coping at all well with being ranked no. 1.

Nice comment by Ian Ward when an Ali 6, bounced into the fish and chip van ... ‘that ball got battered!’

Well that was embarrassing, only thing worse than losing to the Scots is loosing to the Aussies and England can do that 5 times.

What an embarrassment.

Tbh though I never felt confident chasing 371.

Piss poor bowling lost us that game.

Credit to Scotland as they played very well, 371 is an amazing score. Poor decision making from England today which meant we couldn’t quite do it - incredible to score 365 and lose!

On the face though, it is very embarrassing. Maybe a good wake up call prior to playing the Aussie’s

Entertaining match, but two stupid and needless run-outs cost us a win.

Moeen was well set and then tries to smash the spinner out of the ground when he came on. Another over or two of knocking it about and we'd have been home and dry.

Probably the end for Billings as well.

Our bowling did for us. Some of it was bloody terrible.

Well done to the Sweaties, a well deserved win - looking on the bright side, it is good for the game having the Associate nations win matches ....

Don’t mind the loss as long as we beat the Aussies.

Fair play to the Jockulars and good news for the game of cricket if it means more of the associate nations getting to play more regular first class internationals.

This is the crux of it. Let the sweaties have their day in the sun. We have bigger fish to fry.

Have the Aussies 3/56 off 11 at the moememt with Ali taking Finch and Marsh out

Different attack to that was exhibited on Sunday, just with the same personnel it seems

70/4 now, get Maxwell and this is looking good.

Five now, Aussies look very under cooked so far.

Need to get Maxwell, he gets in a lot and can rack up a decent score.

Forget the score (convicts out for 214), I want to know how much abuse they'll all taken over the ball tampering.

Same. I noticed Langer was in the press a few days ago, explaining how his team would "front up" to the challenge posed, that the crowd would be hugely abusive of them. Basically tried to paint the convicts as the wronged party here - as per f*cking usual.

This is the warm up for next year, when Smith and Warner come back into the fold in the world cup. Can't wait for that as levels of abuse will be delightful.

This run chase reminds me of the great Patches O'Hoolihan quote:

It's like watching a bunch of retards try to **** a door knob

Inept batting at the moment 163/6, yet again Root gets 50 and doesn't convert. **** he annoys me
