Looking back through this thread (and any cricket threads on here really) you can see Villa fan pessimism in all it's glory.

For me, as with Australia in the semi, they had a good spell art the change bowlers but the slow start meant they never got ahead of the rate (teams know that they need 250+ runs on the board against us) so they needed to keep accelerating and that translates to scoreboard pressure which means wickets in the 20-40 over spells.

Thatís a great comeback after his first two overs from Plunkett. Excellent.

To be fair, if there's a team in world sport who'll let you down nearly as often as the Villa, it's the England Cricket team.

Pepe's budget didn't stretch to the final by the looks of things.

Wood has struggled for wickets in the World Cup and today was not different. Heís going to be a key bowler in the Ashes so he needs to step up.
