Watched the stream yesterday afternoon and frankly our batting was (and is) poor. I've already stated my opinions in this forum about our batting line-up (similar to those above), but the disappointing thing yesterday was that with a sensible attacking approach yesterday, as shown by Curran and Vasconcelos, we could have won the game, as the wicket was getting easier.
There were poor shots from Wakely and Zaib and a dodgy LBW in Vasconcelos' case, but even at six down, Rossington and Berg looked capable of nicking a win or playing out for a draw. Unfortunately, Rossington, having played some great shots and got on top of the bowling, decided to go after every single ball and had already got lucky a couple of times before he was out. It actually looked like he just wanted the game to end as soon as possible. Once he was out, it was game over, but we made it much easier for Worcestershre than it should have been. Strange really, given Rossington's admirable patience and resistance against Warwickshire.
