World cup has been too 1 sided so far.

Looks like Bangladesh may put a stop to that today.

Saffers now have Ndidi injured and Rabada struggling on top of Steyn still being out. They certainly have the batting to get back into this match but you sense that Bangladesh could cause an upset here if they make 320+ and get a couple of early wickets.

Very impressive from Bangladesh. :salute:
Saffers in trouble now with India up next.

Wood & Archer bowling with the wind behind them at Trent Bridge. Get absolutely anything on it and it’ll roll to the boundary. Could be looking at a really big first innings score for the first time in this tournament.

Bit of a dangerous decision to opt to bowl first on a pitch like this?

Early days. Wood looking good bowling into the breeze. Small ground. We'll see. Slowing 'em down a bit now.

Gut feeling is that Pakistan bowlers stand a good chance of slowing us down and picking us off as the track wears a bit. Always the pessimist though.

Missing Plunkett’s innate ability to take wickets in the middle of an innings. Rashid unlucky not to claim one though, bit of a horror show by Roy.

England can certainly chase a big score at this ground so not too worried. Pakistan have what, four bowlers? Anything below 400 is doable pending a collapse.

Well, a while ago I thought they'd beat 350 comfortably, so it's maybe less ugly than I expected.

I'm backing us to run out of wickets before we make the target.

I think we’ll do it so obviously lump on Pakistan to win by 150 or so.

Maybe they needed something around 370 to make it properly hard for us? You'd think we'd fancy it now it's below 350. C'mon Bairstow!

Not any more. Unless Root and Buttler put on a huge partnership, we're toast.

I think we needed that kick up the arse

Worst fielding I have seen from us in years. Their score was 40 runs more than it should have been with the dropped catches and dismal fielding.

Might do us good to go away and have a think..........you cannot just have a gameplan that involves chasing down whatever score the opposition posts.

Can’t argue with that.
