Awesome display. Really well played England.

However, I've watched England a number of times over the last four years and they look fantastic playing this way. Unfortunately, they can lose their heads and sometimes in difficult battling conditions when you need to stick around for a bit and play sensibly for a few overs we can get skittled out easily as a team.


Mind you I do like our approach and its what has served us well in the majority of the games we have played over this World Cup cycle. Roy is an absolute pleasure to watch and what I really like is the flourish he does with his wrist at the end of some of his shots.

The Lords pitch because of its slope does help swing bowlers and one thing Roy and Bairstow dont like is the ball moving back into them. Bairstow is particular vunerable with his strong bottom right hand.

Credit to the team though for bouncing back in the fashion they did when they needed two wins to even qualify for the semi-finals.

Fingers crossed.

But other than that, you're happy we made the World Cup Final?

...and I was worried about Starc. 9-0-70-1.

Let’s hope that Boult has similar figures on Sunday.

Starc is a monster in the flesh, huge

Had a chat with Warne before we were hustled away, he was gracious in defeat
