Default England

OK, so we look good in the 5-day game, but very poor in the shorter versions of the game. Where are we? 4th from bottom in the 1-day league table?

What's the matter?

Are the 2 games drastically different ? State of mind of the players ?

So, in a nutshell, we don't have the players who can pile ruins on quickly ?

I agree yet I disagree.

The English game teaches players the importance of Test cricket from the very start. ODI's are a very poor and distant relative. Until they address the importance at grass roots level, it'll never change IMO.
