I had to rack my brain in the NZ Bangladesh game. Williamson was run out by a mile but the Bangladesh keeper broke the stumps before he received the ball. If my memory of the rules is correct then the keeper needed to pull the stump out of the ground for a run out to be given. I donít think Iíve ever seen one like that before!

Itís getting a bit tense now. NZ lose their 7th wicket still needing 25 from 36.

Coulter-Nile might have batted the Aussies back into this

Pakistan v Sri Lanka, over the river in Brizzle today was one of the game I considered getting a ticket for.

Glad that I didn't. It's miserable down here and I doubt a ball will be bowled

Blimey I know Moís form with the bat is bad, but Plunkett in for him does leave a long(albeit useful) tail.

I think with a small ground and a green tinged pitch then itís a good choice. Moeen could potentially have been carted to all corners. Plunkett is a wicket taker who should thrive in typically British conditions.

Great start this. Started sensible and now accelerating.

Weird there are lots of empty seats.
