Review of South Africa V England ODI Series Tour 2015-16 by thedevilinme

Advantages: Good seriesn
Disadvantages: England still feeble

In previous decades the England cricket team treated One - Day Internationals as work. They clocked in, scored the perfunctory 270 off the 50 overs and then failed to defend it. There was little kudos in winning these series around the world and so why gi ... Read review

Review of England vs Australia One-Day Series by thedevilinme

Advantages: Good series
Disadvantages: But not as good as the NZ series.

So, after getting up a good momentum to win The Ashes in traditional English conditions it was on to the equally traditional one day series with Australia, the London Cup series included just one Twenty20 International and 5 ODIs. I find it interesting th ... Read review

Loved this series, great to see England finally getting to grips with the modern game. New Zealand are always a joy to watch and a great template for how the game should be played. by siday38
For years I've said I'd rather see England lose having a go rather than just lose, so it is refreshing to see the mental change in their attitude. It will be interesting to see if it lasts. by supercityfan

Excellent review - sadly England will never do well at a World Cup whilst they pick players who play steady cricket like Ballance and Bell - pick players who excite like Hales and Stokes, and please get Butler higher up the order where he can take a game away from the opposition. by supercityfan

I think it is blatantly obvious that the best England players aren't selected. Aussies did not win the Ashes we handed them to em. They're still an ordinary team, who've had extra-ordinary luck. Yes - Flowers has got to go by attitude alone. His interview didn't persuade me he has the fight. If anything he reminded me of a corporate man thinking of his retirement. Top reviewing. by 1st2thebar
Spineless showing by England, agreed, though I also think the current Aussie side are more than useful and came into the series under-rated. I think Flower, as man in overall charge, should carry the can. Cook is talented enough, and still young enough, to make a comeback as a batsman. Whether he's a good enough captain is a different question. by torr
