    Well played Pakistan. England’s fielding was shoddy, which is what cost them.

    Yes sloppy fielding and a third batsman needed to contribute.

    It wasn't just the lack of discipline in the field, but an arrogance, almost an expectation that they'd win come what may, (especially Roy, who let his feeling sorry for himself affect his batting performance too.)

    Roy seems to do that a bit. Unlike Root and Buttler, who are both class.

    Anyway a good wake-up call for England. Fine line between healthy confidence and unhealthy arrogance.

    Pakistan have done for England in tournament play before. Sadly, I wish I was a betting man....

    Morgan will probably get a warning for slow play too and that will make it very possible he will get a one match ban before this is over. Probably the final !

    IMHO, Roy is a supreme talent. A KP in waiting, with arrogance to match.

    I accept his off days as they are far outweighed by his great days. A match winner who will almost certainly be a key Ashes player too.

    I’m not sure even the current positive risk taking selectors will play Roy in the Ashes.

    I hope they do, tho.

    Roy seems more of a one day batsman so not sure he would be good long term in a test series

    Great game WI v Australia - both look capable of winning, if all component parts function properly..........

    Great game but could have also been a great result if Andre Russell had used a brain cell or too...

    Or Chris Gayle.
