    Well played Essex Eagles, first time they've made it into the T20 final
    and they beat Worcs off the very last ball.
    Sterling effort from Ravi Bopara and captain Simon Harmer <ok> <applause>

    78 n.o. for Jonny Bairstow in the first T20 warm up game in New Zealand. <ok>
    Meanwhile, David Warner scored 100 out of the 4th highest ever T20 team score of 233/2 -
    Sri Lanka managed just 99 all out in reply <yikes>

    Nice

    The team however seem to be yellow belly cowards! Good grief all the top order bar Crawly got in, how many gave it away? Unbelievable if it wasn't so common!

    Well credit where credit is due, the team did much better the final three tests, but boy South Africa were shell shocked by the end. We still have a very inexperienced team, but slowly, slowly we are getting the batting sorted and the bowling has been pleasing too. Stokes though, what a game changer!

    Great to see Sibley and Crawley coming to the party - adios Joe Denly, I reckon once Burns is fit again.
    And Ollie Pope....Awesome stuff and a number six batter for years to come.
    Need to reassess the wicket keeping options - Buttler has been poor with the bat, but the makings of a
    young team with the nucleus pretty much in place.
    All a far cry from the first test outcome at Supersport Park, Centurion on boxing day!

    I think that Foakes needs to be given a good go as wicket keeper as Buttler has been poor and Bairstow seems to have completely lost it.
