    445+ would be a new world record.

    If you prepare good batting wickets this is what you get. Personally I think it's boring.

    Well, given that the world record looks likely to be broken, it doesn't happen every time you prepare a good batting wicket. It's exceptionally good hitting (and not a great bowling attack). But I agree that too many games like this would be tedious.

    When did Australia last fail to get half their opponents' total in a ODI?

  11. #1561
    They only made 148, against New Zealand's 307 in 2015/16. And they got less than a third of SA's 289 in 2005/6, being rolled for 93. There may be other more recent ones, I was just looking at a biggest defeats list rather than a proportion one.

    Laura Bates and Sophie Devine smashing South Africa's spinners about.

  13. #1563
    It's Susie Bates. Where did I get Laura Bates from?

    Nice set up this at Taunton, about the right size for the crowd, with lots of kids in the crowd enjoying the boundaries. Twenty20 must have been quite boon for the women's game. It's decent stuff too. Just when you think the batters are lacking a bit in power, they smash one over the top. Some good cat and mouse with fielders coming in off the boundary for the catch. In the men's game, you feel that too many miscues carry for 6.

    I didn't know Sophie Devine bowled too. Bowls a really good quicker bouncer. Amelia Kerr struggled a bit gripping the wet ball, only managing to pitch 3 out of 6balls on an immaculate length, including a wrong-un.

    England Women could set another record today for a T20 - they’re on 175 with five overs still to go, unbelievable century from Tammy Beaumont

  16. #1566
    25 off the antepenultimate over. 224 already on the board and they still have 12 balls to come.

  17. #1567
    An even 250 - outscoring the men yesterday, rate-wise, then.

  18. #1568
    I can see what they are trying with the double headers, but it's pretty tough on the SA bowlers to get flogged by NZ in the afternoon, and then have to come out and bowl at a fresh England team in the evening.

  19. #1569
    Good point.

    Meanwhile, Australia bring in Lyon, finally put Finch up the order, and lose again. Sounded like a thrilling innings from Buttler.

    Paine must be on the verge of standing down, nice guy but has contributed little in this series.

    Five overs to spare, too.

    Piece on Amelie Kerr - http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/...rd-232-not-out

    Apparently almost all tickets gone for the Taunton double header, which is great news.

    England score 160 against South Africa.

    England Lions playing West Indies. Sam Hain scores 145* at faster than a run a ball. Has a List A average of 68. But must seem a bit pointless, as no realistic chance of getting into England ODI team at the moment. Perhaps he could try being Australian again.

    South Africa chase it down. Fantastic resilience from them.
