What a pathetic effort.

You can guarantee we'll produce something akin to today in the World Cup!

I'm thinking that is one game to far for Australia, this is our best way of getting to the final. With some DL results on the way

scorecard certainly suggests a bit of panic at the top of the order, which is not good when you need to lose as few wickets as possible for when the rain comes out to play and DL kicks in.

WTF happened there?

This does have to be viewed in some context. Dead rubber, a series heavily affected by rain, several first choice players rested or injured, and several of the reserves had barely had any cricket at all on this tour prior to today due to the rain.

Nonetheless, for a high quality team, England's ability to produce utterly shocking performances and get thrashed is rather worrying. Every four months or so, they seem to pull out a shocker, as they did in the Champions Trophy semi.

This is concerning for tournament play. They have enough quality to win bilateral series (is this 8 or 9 on the bounce now) - over a best of 3 or 5 series, the odd off day doesn't matter to series results, as they win 3-4 times more than they lose. But in one-off games, like Scotland or the CT, they are vulnerable to getting mugged. The World Cup format is fairly forgiving - 10 teams, everyone plays everyone, so you'd probably need 6 or 7 wins from your 9 games to make the semis. Even if England have an off day like today early in the tournament, you'd think that they should comfortably achieve that, especially in home conditions. I almost hope they do have a shocking collapse early in the World Cup, to get it out of their system before the finals...

I reckon only Anderson and Broad will have played Tests in SL before.

This is the side cricinfo is expecting today.

1 Jason Roy, 2 Jos Buttler (wk), 3 Alex Hales, 4 Eoin Morgan (capt), 5 Joe Denly, 6 Ben Stokes, 7 Moeen Ali, 8 Chris Jordan, 9 Liam Plunkett, 10 Adil Rashid, 11 Tom Curran

Can't imagine Joe Denly will be batting at five, somehow.

Joe Root has slipped a long way very quickly if Joe Denly is picked ahead of him.

England batting.
