So much for playing it safe, that was brilliant by England, Roy, Bairstow, Archer, Woakes and Rashid all superb.

Gotta be strong favourites for Sunday.

Not wishing to get ahead of ourselves, but are Irish people allowed to be knighted?

Bob Geldof got one. What about West Indians and South Africans?

Seems to vary from island to island. Usain Bolt doesn't have one, for instance.

Read about Geldof and apparently he's a KBE, not allowed to be a knight as not born in the Commonwealth. So when the press call him "Sir Bob", they're wrong.

Eire arenít a member of the commonwealth so Geldof didnít get a full knighthood just an honorary one. The individual islands that make up the West Indies are members of the commonwealth so the likes of Sir Viv etc got full knighthoods.
