Jason Roy, handed Hawks Jersey a Hawks Authentic Jersey place Nuggets Jersey back Nuggets Authentic Jersey in the ODI side because of the absence of Alex Hales, seized his chance with rare ruthlessness. At The Oval he struck Mike Bibby Youth Jersey a fluent 84; here he batted just as well but for a little longer, finishing with 96, more than enough to ensure another English victory by nine wickets, yet still a source of some frustration.However, things are looking up for Roy. Five days ago after England’s win in Bristol all he could anticipate was a few more days as a drinks waiter. Meanwhile his new partner, Jonny Bairstow, conjured his second ODI century of the series with barely a false stroke. England have no shortage of batsmen capable of tormenting international bowlers – provided they are propelling a white ball.
So the players of both sides can finally have a bit of a break, although that may not apply to other employees at the ECB. It was something of a relief to all concerned that the season is over – and it is not even October yet. There were a lot of white bucket-seats unoccupied at the Ageas Bowl, which suggested the punters have also had enough unless they had http://www.officialhawkstore.com/Mike_Dunleavy_Jersey all somehow been consumed by Botley’s equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle as they doggedly tried to make their way to the ground.West Indies were put in to bat and Chris Gayle hammered the Ball, Jake that is, to the tune of 34 in six deliveries. The sole consolation to the England hierarchy contemplating their uncertain winter was that Ball was bowling a very good length – for a Test match. Soon Tom Curran, making his ODI debut, delivered a cunning slower ball; Gayle swung early and, to the delight of all the England bowlers but not all the spectators, Liam Plunkett, running backwards, held a fine, diving catch.
Once again the West Indies innings stalled in the middle period against the spinners – there was not a boundary for almost 22 overs. The chief culprit was Marlon Samuels, who may not be required in the future. In this series his strike rate has been very 20th century. Shai Hope eventually speeded up a little towards the end of his innings of 72 and, thanks mostly to Sunil Ambris on his debut and Ashley Nurse, West Indies mustered 93 off their last 10 overs.
Ball yielded 94 Allen Iverson Womens Jersey from his 10 overs, one of which was a maiden. Chris Woakes, suffering from “stiffness”, was not available for selection. Suddenly his fitness throughout the winter seems of paramount importance, so no risks could possibly be taken with him.
West Indies’ 288 for six was nowhere near enough. Bairstow was Roy’s dependable partner in an opening stand of 156. He scored at a run a ball yet was initially overshadowed by Roy, whose pull shots regularly found the boundary, often with a touch of elegance. It was a surprise when Roy was lbw to Miguel Cummins with a century there for the taking but it was not much of a setback for England.Out came Joe Root, whose mind seemed remarkably uncluttered given all that is going on beyond the boundary. He was soon into his stride alongside his fellow Tyke as England breezed towards their target. They ran like gazelles in between the boundaries, something the West Indies batsmen might like to contemplate and then emulate.England won with 12 overs to spare, a satisfactory conclusion to a successful summer. Yet somehow there was a conspicuous absence of elation.Stokes and Alex Hales are missing http://www.authenticnuggetstore.com/Danilo_Gallinari_Jersey the social trip to the Netherlands as they are due in for further police questioning in the coming days. It follows the altercation in Bristol in the early hours of Monday that has led to the pair being suspended on full pay and left England in crisis.But Andrew Strauss, the team director, is understood to have “lightly pushed” others heading to Australia this winter to withdraw from the weekend’s activities, such is the fear at the England and Wales Cricket Board that it could spark more negative publicity in the current climate.
