Need to hope the pitch isn't one of the turgid pieces of shit that we've seen throughout the tournament.

Indeed. If we could nick off Finch, Warner and Smith in first 10 thatíd be good.

The ICC have said that the pitches are not their fault.

Finch gone and the the review was three reds, so the Aussies have burned their review in the second over

Belter of a delivery as his first ball, very hard to deal with.

Another great delivery, Warner always struggles with them up by his chest, this looks like we've really done our homework.

Woakes has been a bit unlucky against handscomb, marginal decision on the first review and then the teeniest of edges for the 2nd. Woakes has got the ball moving fantastically.
