    Hope our lads can win the final, they should do, they're a better team, a hell of a lot of luck involved in cricket though, you can be up against it and at a disadvantage just by losing the toss depending on the pitch and conditions.

    Like the semi, I think the Aussies chose to bat because England have struggled in the tournament when they've had to chase a total, even mediocre ones, but as it turned out they did England a big favour as the overcast conditions and slight dampness in the pitch gave England a lot of movement for the seamers in the first 10-15 overs, that gave England the early wickets that saw the Aussies achieve such a dismal total, then when they came to bat it had brightened up a bit and the pitch had dried out a bit and the ball was doing nothing off the seam

    Well, New Zealand chose to bat first, ok start by England, bowlers not quite found their length yet, or rather not mixed it up enough throwing a couple in at the length where there is some movement, three good wickets taken, Plunkett with 2 of them, doing just that, England's only bowler who's been on song, with the opening bowlers going too much short stuff where it wasn't moving in the opening 10 overs and letting new Zealand get a decent start, could do with a couple more quick wickets now, come on England

    Cricket, Tennis and F1. Three sports played by and watched by toffs, pretend toffs and those with lots of money.

    Give me the darts over any of these any/every day.

    219 - 6 off 46.5 overs, looks promising for England.

    NZ finish on 241 - 8

    Reasonable target for England to aim at.

    Am I a toff? Pretend toff? Lots of money? No, No, Thrice No, Lurcio.

    You would be if you were at the ground. Watching on TV doesn't count.

    Could be a toughish chase, New Zealand have learnt the ball is getting movement in that area it did for England, they're trying to put it right there, up to Roy and Bairstow not to let them. Thought England's bowler's weren't at their best today, too much short stuff and not enough variation in the opening 10-15 overs, it was only really after that England's bowler's found bowling a little fuller was producing movement, so New Zealand have the benefit of that in their first 10-15. Too many sloppy wides, on a better bowling day England really should have restricted New Zealand to 210-220. Hopefully restricting them to 241 is enough and Roy, who is due a ton and Bairstow can get a really good start above the required run rate and get 150 plus without loss
