They’re a good side and have improved since the last World Cup. It shows the benefit of releasing players to play in the various T20 leagues. England have also improved and again players having exposure to worldwide T20 has contributed to this. It seems that Pietersen was right all along, who’d have thought it.

I watched or listened to most of the BAN v SA game. Bangladesh were excellent.

If SA had reached the target it would have been the highest successful run chase in a WC game.

I can't see this tournament producing the 400 plays 400 games that was suggested in places.

Whilst it's a shame that Ireland, Scotland, Zimbabwe etc aren't playing, this does mean that there's no games off from the pressure

A good example of why the legside wide rule needs to be reviewed there. Wood misses the top of leg by about an inch because as he bowled the batsman walked across his stumps.

Aside from that, good start by Pakistan but England have tightened things up and built up some pressure and now got a first wicket. 350 is needed here so they can't afford to let the score drift much.

Yikes Pakistan look like they’re going to get a huge score.

The drop by Roy of Babar was really bad.

I don't really follow cricket. Does that mean the ball has hit the ropey thing that surrounds the pitch a lot today?

Woakes has been poor. Going at over 8 per over.

Just as worrying, so has Rashid

Looks poor on paper but this is Trent Bridge so 340-350 is about par. We scored 341 to beat them here a few weeks back remember. Roy and Bairstow need to give us a solid start though.

That was pretty sloppy and that is a big score to chase. Hopefully our batting will be a lot sharper than our fielding.

Terrible. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those days where we get smashed.
