To be honest winning in 8 overs has massively put our net run rate over the top. If were in a position where it matters I think well be ahead of anyone else.

Agreed Paul. Lost two or three more wickets than would've been ideal, but it's a brilliant start.

Yep, agree about losing four wickets as it would have been a real early statement to have won by 10 wickets or to have only lost one against a side that many are saying will be contenders. 

Not overlooking Bangladesh, but the game against the Aussies next Saturday is a mouthwatering one.

I thought the Windies had a touch too much arrogance about them, that they just had to rock up and beat everyone in front of them. Well that balloon was well and truly burst, although in this format you can lose a game and still qualify for the next stage.

Id love to see us as World Champions in both forms of white ball cricket, it wouldnt make up for the mess that is red ball cricket but itd still be good.

I might be wrong but these pitches don't look like they're setup for big scores, I think we'll see a lot around 150-160 in this tournament.

Good start. Mon Pakistan. Think I dislike India as much as the Aussies these days. It's a disgrace that the ICC allow them to pick and choose which teams they play tests against.

Wow...a thrashing of epic scale for the arrogant fuckers. 10 wickets and 11 balls to spare. It's been a fun afternoon this and stuff at OT.

INCREDIBLY impressive performance from Pakistan.

Very disciplined and aggressive with the ball, Babar and Rizwan measured and ruthless with the bat, committed and athletic in the field - barring the Afridi overthrows towards the end.

Dominated throughout.

I think he will be - as on the face of it, there was no pressure on him to do this so hopefully he put a lot of thought into it.

And put West Indies in their place with those last 5 runs.
