I was a bit/extremely bored this morning, so I decided to crunch some numbers to compare the average number of sixes scored in a test match by England in the 18 tests since the inception of Bazball with the number in the 18 matches pre Bazball (according to cricinfo)

Pre Bazball: 57 sixes in 18 tests, on average 3.1 sixes per test

Post Bazball: 140 sixes in 18 tests, on average 7.8 sixes per test

Thatís a rather mental statistic if you ask me

Question on the ball change don't both captains or players from both sides get to look and agree that the replacement is of a similar condition.

I'll follow along, imagine the format is ludicrous as ever to maximise the number of India games before there's any prospect of anyone being knocked out.

India should win it. Fancy Sri Lanka might spring a few surprises. England's chances rely on Adil Rashid being fit I think, there's a big drop off after him for spinners and they'll be crucial in the later stages in particular. Would like to see this generation go out on a high, it'll be a big turnover after this tournament I think as this is now an old team:

Root 32, plays tests
Stokes 32, plays all formats and broken in six different ways
Buttler 33
Willey 33
Wood 33, always injured
Woakes 34
Bairstow 34, plays all formats
Rashid 35, dodgy shoulder
Moeen 36
Malan 36

A few young uns around - Brook, Curran, Atkinson - but this side is old.

A defeat to Afghanistan here is very much on the cards.

Need a partnership here from Brook and Butler.
