Real soft spot for Bangladesh, they were great today
Yes they were. I would love to see them get through and beat either India or Australia in the semi and then gallantly lose against England in the final.

Poor start so far, they've bowled OK but not enough to have us 3 down already, still batting to come though.

Depends if Root can stop to the end and whether Buttler cuts loose for a spell.

I think this is going to the last over, England need a big over of 15+ get that soon and they become favourites.

Disappointing performance. We never seem to beat Pakistan when it really counts.

Yeah bowling, and fielding particularly, were well below par. Not good enough, and they need to bloody sort it out.
Moeen is a problem with the bat at the moment, his form is so poor.

Obviously there are problems to look at, but when Pakistan have to put on their best performance in ages to beat you and you still have two centurions in the innings then your problems aren't necessarily fundamental. Obviously, must improve massively in the field, but it's not all doom and gloom.
