Every top order batsman got in but didn't go one to make a score, other than Nicholls.  A very decent bowling performance without taking NZ apart.  England red hot favourites and a good start might take the game right away from New Zealand.   At the start of the game, we'd have taken that all day long.  A couple of danger men with ball in hand and well marshalled in the field but I still fancy England here.

Let's attack from the off and try to get the game wrapped up in the first fifteen overs, like we did against the Crims.

I think early runs are important. Itís the most dangerous time with the ball, but also get the most value for shots as well.

I agree.  We have to ignore their score and just play the game to the plan we normally have when we are batting.  If we lose a couple of early wickets, drop anchor and re-evaluate.  On any normal day, the way the one day stuff has been played over the last 10 years, 241 should never be enough.  This the best chance we will ever have of winning the World Cup, ffs, please take that chance England.

I'm getting as nervous as I was on the morning of the Play-Off Final. BTW, Shane Warne looks better without the botox!  :D

I think the commentators are over playing that. It looked very leg side to me, I think the umpires decision was fair.
