Will someone tell the Scotland bowlers every time they bowl short they are getting hit all over the ground.

Willey and Denly miss out

Dawson a wee bit of a surprise as he didn't play in any of the warm up games, but they obviously felt a proper back up spinner was needed instead of relying on part timers like Root or Denly.

Josh Davey had a cracking opening spell in the one day cup final for Somerset. Took a couple of early wickets going for 28 runs from his first 8 overs.

AUCC have Stew Mel 67-8 at Lochlands. Was going to head round for the run chase but won’t bother now

Doesnt make any difference but that decision to give Steve Smith out is a shocker. Commentators are astounded.

Somerset finally get over the line and win something. Very pleasing.

Liking the new England kit. Sky blue eh?

Was a good win for Australia especially without Cummins and Starc. Was impressed with a few of their bowlers. England without Root batting and without Morgan also but not great for them today. They’re a very good side with great depth but I wasn’t blown away with them in the Pakistan series either despite the whitewash. Still feel like there’s a collapse in there. Great game by Jos Buttler in both innings, he kept well and batted well.

Brilliant reaction catch at slip by Stokes gives Root another wicket and Rashid a first ball duck, 92-8.

As is common with these warm up games, neither side has fielded a ‘full’ side so it’s hard to take anything away from it. Archer bowled really well early on but some stupid wickets for Afghanistans high-order to lose. Some very naive play in there and once Hazmatullah and Shahzad were gone the game was over (if it wasn’t already). Great fielding by Ben Stokes at slip and good overall bowling by Root and Ali aswell. Nabi has done a good job of batting safe and smart to avoid an embarrassing total for Afghanistan but the game is well and truly over.

The Afghans made it up to 160 but that shouldn't pose any problems for England. 3 wickets for Archer, 3 for Root and Adil Rashid got a few overs under his belt.

Stunning innings by Jason Roy. Such an underappreciated player.
Always helps when you can come out swinging as you know you aren't chasing a big target, but some brilliant hitting from him.

Was going to put that after but forgot. Really looking forward to the tournament now.

Poor start for India with Sharma and Dhawan going out early. Kohli came in and did well as have Rahul and Dhoni. They’ve recovered nicely.
