  • Well, Bangladesh was clearly the better team. India just couldn't play Rahman :(

  • Fantastic cricket from Bangladesh too, in the verge of leading india 2-0 as I write. 19 year old Rahman couldn't have had a better start to his ODI career; 2 games vs India, 11 wickets. Huge progress made by Bangladesh. Time for me to be critical of Duckworth-Lewis again, first the england thing last week (and yesterday's one was harsh too), now in the India vs Bangladesh game, the target was reduced from 201 off 50 overs to 200 off 47. Bit harsh, but not really going to change much I guess...

  • Fantastic win for England, especially after such a poor start in the 5th game. Fantastic especially from Bairstow having not played for England in while. On we go... Hopefully more of the same in the t20 and then the Ashes and one dayers vs AUS

  • The run rate for the whole series was above 7 per over. Great entertainment as well.

  • Well done England. The best combined performances in a 5 match ODI series ever. Outstanding! :-)

  • Watson's had enough chances, time for Marsh

  • I'm the opposite, I can't imagine him not succeeding the extra pressure of a test match will bring the best out of him, similar to how a chase in an ODI does. He scored his first century in first class cricket for Lancashire two weeks ago as well, so he's used to English conditions and batting/bowling decently. Not great, but certainly performing better then Watson who averages 32 with the bat and 50 with the ball over the past 2 years.

  • I can't imagine Faulkner succeeding as an all-rounder in tests, certainly not yet anyway- His batting in the final 10 overs of ODIs is excellent but in first class/tests it would be a huge ask to bat him higher than 8... 7 at the highest... And he certainly doesn't warrant a place over any of our current bowlers. I still think Watson is our best all-round option but it would be nice to see him contribute more

  • As an England supporter I would prefer Watson to Faulkner playing.
