Another good performance with the ball restricted India to 144-8 off their 20 overs. The last 5 overs went for 36 runs which is excellent death bowling in T20. It's an achievable target and I think India are probably 20 runs short of setting us a challenging target.

Yes England bowling and fielding  was good and with a little application from batsmen this is a win.

Poor way to lose, as we bowled really well. Although a terrible umpiring decision cost us.

Technology is needed for big decisions. Shit umpiring for Roots dismissal.

Great game between Aus & NZ. Looked like the convicts had no chance but Marcus Stoinis hit an unbeaten 146 to get them close to victory only for Hazlewood to get run out backing up.

The 50 partnership for the 10th wicket come up without Hazlewood even facing a ball  :o

Turns out the umpire appointment was against the rules of the ICC, his appointment by India was within a restricted time period as he'd just finished umpiring in Australia a day or so earlier.

Nothing the BCCI does surprises me. However regardless of whether he was suffering from jet lag or not, he is still a poor umpire.

Kohli run out very early on, clearly his fault but he blamed Rahul at the non-strikers end.

Kohli is a marvellous player but strikes me as an arrogant prick. Dhoni always seemed magnanimous in victory and defeat so clearly Kohli needs to learn something from him before he becomes one of the most disliked players in world cricket.

That's the understatement of the year so far Paul! It was a woefully inadequate performance.

Glad no Warwickshire or Gloucestershire players were involved, tied up as they were with winning the Big Bash.
