Roll on Thursday next week. I have tickets for Edgbaston and would love England to thrash arrogant India once again. Hopefully they will keep selecting Dhoni and Shami, Chahal and Pandya will keep chucking lolly pops at Bairstow, Roy and Co.

I think the NZ performance made it pretty clear that the pitch wasn't the same as Roy and Bairstow batted on at the start of the day, it was good bowling but it was also, with hindsight, a very good toss to win.

When the Ashes Test team is announced will the selectors pick the in form Dom Sibley? Or will we see the usual failures Jennings and Vince?

England Ladies have thrown this away. Big uphill task to win The Ashes back now.

After Tammy's century, I think that the next highest score was around 25. That's not going to cut it.
They were at least 50 runs short of setting a defendable score

Pakistan don't appear to be bothering to try to get the 400+ they need to stand any chance of qualifying for the semis

Are Bangladesh the first team to ever wear an away kit?

I watched that match and have somehow erased India's kit from my mind.

I really liked Indias second kit, thought it looked ace.

For a country that is obsessed with bloody singing, India don't half have a shit anthem.

Itll be a tough game either way, but think Id rather have the Aussies in the semi-final.

This is great competitive match. Aussies need 20 from 8 balls with Starc and Behrendorff in/
