Whatever the score this chase will be tough.

Yes we need the openers to see out Starcs opening spell, then plenty of overs to get the runs. Most people thought India would cruise past New Zealand's total, never easy chasing a small total.

Think its a very good batting pitch. We've just picked up wickets at key times meaning they've had to curb their aggression.

In a regular ODI, I think 280 would be the bare minimum on this. In a WC though its a bit different

Not a good over from Plunkett.

When we get in there are 3 priorities, in order:

Don't lose early wickets
Don't take it too easy and leave ourselves with too much to do (this fucked India yesterday)
Score a few early boundaries, make them worry about saving runs rather than taking wickets

Another really tight one from Woakes that was pretty unlucky to not get the umpire onside, brilliant bowling though, Woakes has been truly excellent today.

Think booing is daft, will just motivate them.

Brilliant from Buttler, This is why i like having natural sportsmen like him and Stokes in the team.

I reckon it will take something special to deny Woakes the man of the match award here, he was brilliant at the start and getting Starc there was superb.
