16th end: England 112-0 (Roy 46, Bairstow 61) Bairstow smoked Chahalom for a long time six. only Rahul cleared the border. This leads to an increasingly frightening half-century of 56 balls, not to mention the vitality of one hundred partnerships. We love you Jonny! And he loves us, it seems, because he just dropped the other one six land down the last ball before the drink breaks. Phew.
15th place: England 97-0 (Roy 44, Bairstow 48) Kuldeep Yadav, the left left wrist joint, who gave England heebie-jeebies at the beginning of last summer's ODI series, is replacing Pandy. Roy runs down the path to firing another ball down the ground for a bounce four, then Bairstow waves full throwing the cow corner into the other border. After an understandably nervous start, these two play nice. They achieved 47 out of the top ten; they hit 50 of the last five.
"Hi Rob," says Alex Netherton. "Just reading your work today and I do not like it?"
You do not like what you do best, socializing.
14th place: England 84-0 (Roy 38, Bairstow 41) Roy turns to Chahal for four, and then Bairstow breaks it in a crowd! The last four overss brought 37 runs.
"She swears this," says Anand. – Does Bairstow seem too eager / nervous today? Do you have anything to do with prediction?
At first he seemed nervous, especially against Shamiji, but he played with much greater authority over the last few years. Roy was at his best, no matter the delay. They had a lot of luck in Shami's first spell, and they could not do much with Bumrah, but so far they had a great impact on Chahala and Pandy. Sham and Bumrah have pulled eight holes for 30 years; Čahal and Pandy's six overs have gone for 51.
12th place: England 63-0 (Roy 32, Bairstow 27) Three of Chahal's endings, most of which I spent trying to reduce the pulse after Pandey.
11. According to: England 60-0 (Roy 31, Bairstow 26) Hardik Pandya was caught in the attack – and hit the fourth ball! Roy had survived an attempt to lower his foot from the ball Aleem Dar called wide. India discussed the review before deciding against it – but the repeated results showed it had shaved the glove. If they looked at him, he would be out there.
Roy applies the Himalayan pink salt to the wound, taking 10 of the first two balls of his second ining. Driving massive six over a wide middle part, then another huge driver just cleans the man in the middle. Crime, it was over.
10. According to: England 47-0 (Roy 19, Bairstow 25) Chahala replaces Shami. Roy, on the pitch, misses a desperate blow to the first ball. Indian hunters were pretty brilliant this morning, and Shami made 10 consecutive points on both ends before Roy started working behind the square on the other side. Fascinating Powerplay ends in England at age 47.
"It looks like 11 traffic lanes that move on the field," says Farooq Aslam. – In that connection, all of Pakistan is behind you. Come on, Orange! "
9. nad: England 46-0 (Roy 19, Bairstow 25) Bumrah gives England nothing. He is doing such an uncomfortable length, which makes it difficult to know whether to go back or forward, and Bairstow has little chance to play a girl, Bumrah's figures are 4-1-8-0.
"Today I will rely on you as I go to the Olympic Stadium to watch American cricket – Redsox vs. Yankees," says George Browne. "Not knowing the format of these things, maybe the OBO family can offer some tips on the American cricket label and tradition? Panama and smoked salmon, and la lords, do I suppose? All tips are welcome! "
8. nad: England 46-0 (Roy 19, Bairstow 25) Chahal continued. Roy slides down the course, does not come to the field and has no choice but to put the ball to the safe. He leaves places for the next ball through the cover for four, and then retrieves the next delivery from the outside of the board to the other border. That's a great hit. There are 19 of 18 balls, Bairstow 25 of 30.
"Morning Rob and loyal guys HMS OBO," says Guy Hornsby. "Despite the terrible fear and existential fear, that's for sure what it is, is not it? We need the best – as we should, in view of our ranking – at home with the right party, with a crowded, Partisan audience? I want to try and enjoy this as much as I can, before we decide to put it into our own peak in England. It is time for someone to become a hero (Roy, with tone, please).
7. via: England 37-0 (Roy 11, Bairstow 24) Bumrah has changed the end to replace Shamija, whose numbers are 3-0-21-0 travesty. Bairstow, whose ride is excellent, invites Roy to a sharp leg. He already had his own fitness test, Jonny. England struggles with Bumrah over time, if they can even put it on it. He is a sensational semi-starter, and the third of them gives just a few runs. There are excellent statistics on Sky by Mike Atherton – the rate of India's economy in Powerplay at this World Championship is 3.72, which is more than running better than any other.
"One thing I love about Edgbaston's domination by supporters in India," says Ian Copestake, "how unfortunate that Katie Hopkins is creating."
6th on: England 35-0 (Roy 10, Bairstow 23) Well now. After five overs, attacker Yuzvendra Chahal comes into the attack. This is a good, attacking move by Virat Kohl, careful attention to placing a cat among the pigeons. Bairstow shows significant moxie to trigger a third ball over the middle for one to four defeated. That's a nice blow. Next Chahal's ball is a wonderful break that surpasses the defensive blow of Bairstowa. This is an interesting thing. One thing to watch out for – Roy faced only three deliveries in the last five years. I hope this will not be expensive.
5th place: England 28-0 (Roy 9, Bairstow 18) Roy was beaten by a wonderful delivery from Shamy straightening with a seam and then pulling through Dhoni's gloves to go. Indian hunters started top-notch with no luck: two balls later on, Bairstow re-inside the edges, immediately behind the pike for four, and ends with a thick outer rim for two. She was well-rounded, fair to Bairstow, and he returned to the second run. This is extremely tense, at the same time privilege and misery to be described.
"Good morning and that's good," says John Starbuck. "I do not know whether it was intentional or not (sarcasm?), But England is playing at home, not in India. You can not describe everything just from the corners of Indian fans."
Indeed, but you can describe everything from RECOMMENDATIONS, WHY WHAT IT DOES.
Third via: England 14-0 (Roy 8, Bairstow 5) Bairstow is a nerve bag. The inner edge rescues it when Shami goes up for LBW, before the other inner edge flashes this one away from his heels. Overcrowded ends when it is caught by a sudden booty that simply misses a pan.
"As a gorgeous Englishman living in India, I'm sweating and I'm breathing hard while my friends in India are laughing and joking," says Saad Sheikh. "I know it's optimistic, but with Roy and Archer in the game and on a great kick field, I have the money for England." After all, it is "new" England, so it may not be under pressure as old. "
I'm not sure the old man ever played under that pressure, not ODI.
Second via: England 10-0 (Roy 8, Bairstow 1) Jonny Bairstow's first challenge is the unique threat of Jasprit Bumrah. He was beaten with a third ball, feeling to deliver that nip from a wide fold. Beautifully cropped. In fact, everything is great, only with a thick edge for disposable delivery.
"I can go inside one leg to my feet suggesting that what is really needed for many of this tournament is tied to the game today," says professional SICKO Brian Withington. "The potential for a lot of teams to finish at eleven points and a lot of hurrying for tournament rules and thinking about the forbidden theme of the Net Run Rate. Nervous, huh? "
Is there any connection for listening to the test of special foreign competitions? This.
1st place: England 9-0 (Roy 8, Bairstow 0) Perfect start for England: they did not fuck! Mohammad Shami started with the changes, then took out a short ball out of the barge that Roy had fired for four. They are trying to slip very well to Roy, who is so good to give him any width. When Shami only offers a piece, Roy tastes deliciously driving between the extra cover and the middle for four. A event that was filled with events ending with an absent mind outside the rocks of Roy; for a miserable second, I thought Dhoni had turned to her.
"I will be on a flight back home for three hours, so OBO will have to be my eyes and ears for this match," says Avitaj Mitra. We can be your nerve breakdown if you want. The first question: what will England's total satisfaction be? Anything above 275 … 300? No one is sure when Virat Kohli is in the opposition team, but what would the ball rating be pleasantly defending?
It is difficult to say until we see a few steps. If the terrain is good as people say, I think they need at least 320.
Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow walk in the middle, It's a wonderful day in Birmingham, and about 90 percent of the audience are Indian fans.
Sir Alex Ferguson's Message in England (Warning: the clue contains Anglo-Saxon language)
"Good news for Ananda," says Matt Dony. He thought he would squeeze one of the speeds in the middle, but as I bobbed the ball, I tapped awkwardly and let it drip to the boundary rope. The polucilindra took me. Nuts. Anyway, that'll be a long day. I can not say that I hope, I can not say I'm positive, I can not say I'm happy. How did it happen in the last few years? "
Jason Roy and Liam Plunkett are coming to James Vince and Moeen Ali. Eoin Morgan says Roy "is not a big risk".
India brings potentially devastating Rishabh Pant to Vijay Shankar, who has a toe (sic). Virat Kohli says that he would fight first but that it was "never a problem of chasing … I like to chase." Yes, sir, yes.
England Roy, Bairstow, Root, Morgan (c), Stokes, Buttler (wk), Woakes, Rashid, Plunkett, Archer, Wood.
India Rohit, Rahul, Kohli (c), Jadhav, Dhoni (wk), Pant, Pandya, Shami, Kuldeep, Chahal, Bumrah.
England has won and will hit first
That should be a good pitcher to win.
Always with the Smiths
"Last night I was watching Johnny Marra playing this charming man in Glastonbury," says Phil Smith. "This morning I have everything I have in mind, please let me get what I want."
"Good morning!" says Anand. "Since I did not manage to score yesterday in OBO, I thought I would open my account with a quick and wide number of messages. I hope we will play a great match today. I would like India to run to a difficult sum to see how the team works. I also get used to our local boy Vijaya Shankara (we went to the same school, though for years separately).
I do not think it will play – it is rumored that Rishabh Pant will be released.
Boy, it's escalating fast. Nine days ago, England moved to the World Cup semi-finals. Now, one and half of the game later, they struggle for their lives. Around them was blinded by Pakistan, which now favors the last semi-final. The good thing for England is that they will definitely qualify if they win the last two games. The bad news is that the first of them is absent from the best team in the world.
If England met India in the semi-finals or final, the primary emotion would be excitement. Today is fear – no failure, which is bad enough, but traumatic humiliation. It is a unique psychological burden, and as a fan of England it is hard to fear the worst.
It is even harder to hope for the best. If England wins today, and against New Zealand on Wednesday, they will go into semi-finals with Maurice Mentum as a 12-man man and all that trouble will be forgotten. But that is – the size – Orka if.
There are suggestions Edgbaston's playground will be troublesome for kickingeven though we've heard it already. Given the pressure, throwing is absolutely crucial: bat first, get a competitive rating and a field as you never did before. Hell with your hand.
The currency in which elite athletes are most proud of is not talents, trophies, money or even Instagram students. That's their answer to the fight or the escape. The way England is playing today will help shape the way it will be remembered. That's really it. God, gentlemen.
Match starts at 10:30.
