Of course Broad and Anderson aren't there, but yes, Moeen Ali looks the bollox up the order. Was very disappointed with Morgan, maybe he's just over the hill.


Well, that's it then.

A chilly morning, perfect to munch on some jam donuts and sip hot chocolate with whipped cream and watch England not be able to chase down 6.7 runs an over.

I think Cook thinks he's opening for a test match.

So Cook gets the old heave ho from ODIs.

Not before time. Hopefully Hales or Wright will replace him at the top of the order.

Not before time, although I think they made a mistake with appointing Morgan as his replacement. Maybe they didn't want to undermine Cook's position as test capt. with someone who is in the team, like Root or Broad.

Hasn't Wright been tried up the order before, with minimal success?

And I think this is a factor in picking Morgan. It's probably good not to have an "alternate format" captain in your squad. Especially if you're excelling in one format and struggling in the other.

They concentrated on line and length and it paid off. The Aussies next on Friday. I'm looking forward to the WC.
