People talk about sporting clash today with Wimbledon  final and F1 at Silverstone so not sure about what to watch. I am sorry but there is no choice. It has to be the Cricket World Cup final. Whilst I like  both the Wimbledon final happens every year and same o tired faces turn up for the final and F1 is again a yearly event and we know it's going to be a procession with Mercedes 1, 2. 27 years since England were last there so these opportunities don't come around every day. Don't mess it up chaps.

I haven't watched Formula One since Damon Hill won it and I don't care about the tennis as it is the same old faces in the final. No contest for me, either.

Happy New Zealand have chosen to bat. Hopefully get a couple of early wickets and have them under all kinds of pressure, then all we have to do is not bottle it like India.

Hopefully Woakesy and Archer can get amongst them early. Lord's can be difficult at 10.30am to bat...

Feel like Woakes is a bit short here.

Nice to have a Villa fan and a Bear opening the bowling.

Hell of a decision that from Erasmus, because I thought it was out.

My first reaction was that it was too high.
