Surely India will chuck the England game to shaft Pakistan?

Fabrace is annoyingly spinning it upbeat and  blurting  blind adoration. I just couldn’t listen to him after Australian defeat. Too much froth and not enough substance.

But would India want to play England in the semi final😉
At the match yesterday I could swear the two Kiwi fielders were smiling when Haris split them with another fab cover drive! I turned around and said to my friend there is no way they want England in the SF.

I see Bairstow has now come out complaining about Pietersen and Vaughan ‘waiting for England to fail’ and how we’re ‘playing a great brand of cricket’. Well firstly the last two games have been anything but a great brand, and I’d recommend less talk and get on with winning the next two games.

Agreed, it betrays a mindset of negatively and fear. Minds need to be 100% on the job so the outside noise becomes irrelevant.

When asked if match against India was a big game our Jonny mumbled something like “ may be it is” FFS JB it is a big big match. Lose it and qualification is not in your hands.

Quite, and whilst it’s doing us a favour South Africa battering Sri Lanka is showing quite how terrible our result was.

I have no problem with England staying positive, but don’t get salty when you’re criticised after the last two displays. Hold your hands up and admit you performed poorly.

As an aside I see Buttler came out with a much more measured response than Bairstow.

I don't think that is a winning score. Afghanistan not good enough at batting, none of their players look capable of getting big scores. Have they even got a 50 all tournament?

NZ also showing why us getting battered by Aus was embarrassing.
