Ok, there was no call and he was watching the ball.
But what the fuck was Lees doing ambling half way down the wicket without a call. He was assuming there was going to be a run and Crawley was going. But that was a big and wrong assumption. Lees has only himself to blame for being gormless.
It was an easy single
It was a bloody awful shot Crawley played not long after.
Mind, that reverse sweep for 6 Joe Root just played was extraordinary!
How much longer are they going to persevere with Crawley?
No longer hopefully.
42 innings to average just over 21 (if you remove that one huge score of 267) should be more than enough evidence to get him back in the county side for the rest of the year where he can enjoy his central contract and hopefully rebuild some form.
Not quite sure what to make of a probable 3-0 series whitewash against the world Test champions! Probably would've been a very different-looking series score without Bairstow, but the "Bazball" approach, if it lasts, is paying dividends for the moment. It has a touch of Kevin Keegan's Newcastle about it! Undeniably exciting, but not sure how long it'll last or if it'll work in different circumstances. But I'd much rather see a team go down swinging than trying to defend and survive, nearly always falling to a predictable tame defeat.
