We need to win tomorrow and I liked Morgan’s interview today.

So far we've had one poor bowling performance against Pakistan, and one poor batting performance against Sri Lanka.

Put together a reasonable all round effort and we should beat the Aussies

We should, but the pressure is on now and pressure situations are where we’ve failed in this World Cup. We most likely need to win two of the last three to be certain.

Australia have some very dangerous players so it’s not ideal that we’ve not taken a wicket in the first 10 overs. They have a platform for their middle order. The fuckers.

Bowled poorly, way too short. Been a little bit of seam when fuller.

Only positive to look at is the pitch is only going to get better to bat on as the day goes on.

Thats clutching at straws though, as at the moment we appear to be wilting under the pressure

It’s the type of situation where we collapse for nothing.

Khawaja in now so that should slow them down to 3 an over. Trick is to keep him there rather than Smith coming in too early.

England will lose this today, the big moments they're not taking their chances. Poor missed stumping.

Really awful bowling and fielding performance. Starc and Cummins will not be so generous when we bat.

We’re staring down the barrel in our own World Cup here. They need to pull something special out of the bag in the remaining 65 overs of this game.

It's clearly not been a great innings so far but I don't think it's been awful, we could do with some more wickets but we've not let them really get going, every time they've tried to put their foot down we've had an over or 2 to slow it down again. They have the wickets in hand to be able to go really aggressive but at least they're not doing it with a massive score already up.
