Just seen that throw from Buttler again in slow mo. Lucky how the ball nutmegged Smith and just missed his rusty bullet hole before hitting the wickets.

We all know Australia will win this either way. I can't decide if I'd rather they batted us out of sight and we never get close, or if we lose by the odd run chasing a measly total. Of course being England, they'll probably do it the third way and be bowled out for less than 100.

You can get 7/2 on Australia if you fancy them to win. England are 1/6.

The Villa man has done the Aussies good and proper.

He might still have some work to do yet with the bat on this pitch.

Its only the pressure of a WC semi final chase that can really stop us getting a target that is well below par.

Woakes and Archers opening spell was as good as any I've ever seen from an England ODI side. The early wickets made Australia bat cautiously on a good pitch. I think the pitches true nature was shown in the Smith/Carey partnership.

I agree, I think it would be wide of th emark to suggest the pitch was responsible for the first powerplay, it was exceptional bowling.

Be interesting to see how England approach this now.  It's a funny score to chase that's neither truly shit or overly massive.  Hopefully Roy gets an easy ton, and we wrap it up in 40 overs.

If we can bowl Australia out they can definitely bowl us out. Just win the game England.

Today was triumph of pure hard work and effort overcoming  avarice  and arrogance. Well done New Zealand.

What do people find so dislikeable about the Indian team ?

Jadeja is a joy to watch in all aspects of the game. I'll concede that Kohli is arrogant but he's regarded as one of the hardest workers in the sport (this was discussed on TMS yesterday)
Not so much the players who are disliked. Kohli is my favourite cricketer at the moment. Itís the Indian cricket board and their attitude of disdain towards rest of the world that pisses me off.

Hopefully play it safe for 8-10 overs and then go from there, rotate the strike and punish anything short or wide.

Itís not truly but itís near enough shit. I wouldnít want Roy and Bairstow to change their approach as there are no demons in the pitch.

If we bat sensibly for the first 10 overs then we will have a platform on which to build a successful run chase.

Their attack is at least as good as ours but we have more explosive batsmen in our line up. This will be a day for nudgers and hurdlers not sloggers so Root could be the key.
