Not looking good. Yet another duck for Morgan and we are now 133/5 needing 276 to win.

20 overs remaining to get 143.

The batting has been very poor and after a good start at 97-1 some very poor shot selection has led to a collapse.
Our hopes are with Root and Butler.

Root gone

Our batting has been woeful in every game and we seem so lacklustre throughout the whole team.

Incapable of offering anything different other than Joss Buttler and we put him in number 7.

Dear me.
Bell gets bogged down when he has to go on having batted slowly. Morgan and Taylor no contributions. Root looks settled until ... A spineless performance I'm afraid.
Win the toss and bat, why not?

Poor decision to give Jordan run out. Bat clearly down from one side.

8 down now. 38 now from 24.

That was a disgraceful decision. Who says TV replays are going to solve everything in football? Nonsense.

Need 16 off 2 overs

Good over. 16 now from last 2 overs but we can't lose a wicket with only Anderson to come

And Broad bowled first ball of 49th over.

An incorrect call from the tv umpire to give Jordan out but to say the back of the bat was "clearly" down is a biased opinion. The vision was inconclusive so benefit should have gone to the batsman.

It was anything but clear.

On our way home. Anderson goes second ball.

As for the run out. Impossible to give him out from those pictures. Shocking decision.

This is a poor England team though and not sure how much longer we continue with Moores in charge.

For a while there an upset was on the cards.:D

To rub salt in the wounds we have been cleaned up by the Bangladesh seamers.

I'm in Sydney on Friday, and actually considered going to the game, I'll go to the pub instead, how embarrassing this is!!

I've watched quite a bit of this World Cup and I've seen better cricket played by Ireland and Afghanistan than I have from England.

I have to say that why oh why is one of the most destructive one day batsmen in the world, who happens to play for England, not in the bloody squad! Politics gone mad. We have been humbled by a hard working but hardly world class bunch.

No ifs buts or maybes Moores has to go after an embarrassing tenure in his second time in charge of England.

Since leaving Sussex where he did a fantastic job apart from one successful season at Lancashire he has been a disaster.

Agree mkmel Moores seems to be a bit of a loser wherever he goes and is no improvement on Ashley Giles. He and his squad are rudderless with no idea how to play 50 over cricket. Heads must roll.

Bit of a loser wherever he goes??

His record at County level is fantastic, he's just clearly not cut out for international cricket.

I think the best tactic will be for us all to contact SKY and inform them that we will not be renewing our subscription for the Ashes.
I certainly dont want to watch the slaughter that will ensue if Moores is still in charge. He is miles behind Lehmann in all areas.
The ECB are spineless and won't sack him so our only hope would be that SKY would crank up the pressure on them in order to make the series a bit more competitive and get some customers back.
Seriously I'm not subscribing to watch such 2nd rate, leaderless rubbish.

I think we should get Lowerhouse to take Englands place next time..would surely have a better chance...certainly more desire and organisation :)

You have to be the most negative poster on here, I know you think your funny but you make the board hard work to look at.

So I see the light side of things and you think that makes me 'negative'? Lol.

So Boycott was right about Morgan.


Absolute tripe, not that it was unexpected.

Boycott was saying how it's all about the stats and not the feel for the game as it develops.

Robot cricket...beaten by human beings using head and heart.

Moores' response that "we'll look at the data" was pathetic. Playing cricket by numbers. The guy has never played international cricket and it shows. England rightly discarded Bell and Anderson as 1 day cricketers a few years ago and then incorrectly brought them back along with Ballance. All wrong calls.
