Basically that’s two close games we’ve been involved in in this World Cup and we’ve lost both. Stupid batting from far too many and now we’re pretty much at knockout cricket.

We need to be a hell of a lot better.

Out solution to every problem seems to be hit your way out of it.

India struggled today, could be an even bigger upset.

Yup now that it's more than run a ball. Shame.

Good fight by the Afghans. I'm going to Pakistan v Afghanistan next week. Doesn't look like they'll be anything riding on it but a close game would be nice.

Brilliant end to the Windies New Zealand game. Windies one foot away from the most unlikely victory of the tournament. Best day of the competition so far.

I just checked in with the result as I turned off when Gayle holed out. Gutted I gave up at that point, it sounded like an amazing finish.

We need to be a hell of a lot better.

In fairness we probably only need to win one of our last 3 games to get into the semi finals.

We do have that sort of batting performance in us once a series/tournament, but we have been the best batting unit in the competition despite the last game.

Imran Tahir celebrations are a bit over the top. I wonder how he will behave if SA ever win the WC?

India struggled and won the game England lost both games where they were challenged. Not good.

Indeed it’s about dealing with pressure. Thus far we haven’t.

Still with the three remaining group provide an opportunity to make a statement. Time for it to be positive, and importantly time for us to play with some brain power.

Looks like Roy could easily be back for Tuesday. Massive if so. Vince is talented, but hes more of a: gorgeous boundary, gorgeous boundary, nick behind sort of guy.

As a few people have said Vince's biggest problem is that his strongest shot is also his weakest, a good cover drive from him is absolutely text book but if he misjudges it too often and edges to slip. He'd be a dream to set a field to because you put you 2 best fielders at extra cover and first slip and bowl slightly full at 5th stump. Add a couple of extra fielders on the offside and he'll barely score and always be at risk.

Is it me or does every other game seem to be at the bloody Rose Bowl?
