New Zealand building well here after losing two pretty early wickets.  Still a massive score to chase down though.

South Africans once again choking. India v Australia final,  the worst option ever IMO.

Totally agree. Can they both lose somehow.

India have absolutely flown out of the traps. But they’re going to hand it to Aus if they keep giving wickets away. On the one hand it’s a horrible game as I’d like both to lose. But equally there’s some joy from either one losing.

Anyone but Australia for me. I turned on just as the second wicket fell so I haven't seen a boundary in well over an hour. I understand the conservatism from the batters but I wonder when they start going for it again.

I can't help thinking that the ball before the wicket of Jadeja, the appeal is designed to get inside his head.  Bit of a conspiracy theory but if it's true, it's brilliant from the Aussies.  India choking again.

Disagree, this turning of the World Cup (and arguably the whole sport) into a sycophantic Modi lovefest deserves a high-profile disappointment.

I agree that a humiliation in front of 100 odd thousand fans would be hilarious but does it have to be bloody Australia handing it out?

I know, it's not ideal, but the cards have been dealt and that's what it is.

I just can't bring myself to be as anti- anybody else as I can the Aussies.

Spend five minutes with a fervent Modi fan and you'd want Steve Hodge to beat him up.

It does, but the Indian attack is capable of absolute bombardments so we'll have to see.
