When I was watching some of the earlier games I was unimpressed with Pakistan. Some skilled cricketers but overall as a group their unfit and the fieldings pretty mediocre. Sri Lanka same same but far worse. Losing to Pakistan was bad but to Sri Lanka was totally unacceptable.

England have gone into this World Cup playing what they like to call "No Fear" cricket. Which seems to comprise of a premeditated game plan based on smashing the ball out the ground. Which is fine when it works but is disastrous when it fails. It seems everything is preplanned and when the wheels come off theres no Plan B. Theres no adapting to playing conditions or what other teams are doing. Just smash the ball out the ground and bowl to set lengths/fields. Thing is even the weaker nations have players who can do some damage and you have to be able to restrict them, but none of that seems to be taken into account.

I think England do/did have the talent to win this World Cup, its just the way they seem to approach each game in a reckless manner. Their struggling to even qualify for the final stages now and it's all self inflicted.

Hope so coz I am on your lads at nearly 5/1. Couldn't resist when I saw that price. It's gone now.













Hopefully Australia vs Poms in the final. I win a few bob if the Empire wins and get bragging rights if us Colonials are successful

I never doubted their ability and backed them all the way. In a manner of speaking.

Now got the to deal with.

The NZ batting in the game against England was really odd.

Guptill strangled down the leg side by a wide ball. If Nicholls had reviewed his LBW decision he would have been given Not Out. Williamson run out by Woods fingertips (shouldn't have been backing that far up anyway). Taylor didn't want to miss out on things so ran himself out going for a non existent second run.

4 wickets chucked away and the match along with it.
