Babar gets the Century!
Nice win for Pakistan
Excited to watch Gayle bat vs India in about 45 mins
Sorry to disappoint.
Every time I get to sit down and watch him bat, he always does nothing. Get so angry
BTW I had no idea AB retired from International. South Africa is awful without him
A couple quick big wickets for India
He tried to come back for the WC but the board said No Thanks. I can see why they'd deny that but it's not like he's been sitting on his hands. He does plenty well in the IPL.
Yeah its a tricky situation. I usually tend to agree with the Board on this. You dont want to grind for your country but you want to play in the World Cup. No Thanks. Basically like Ibrahimovic for Sweden
What a catch by India
OH SHIT HAT TRICK OPPORTUNITY
Man .. went to a meeting and came out to WI being 7 down.. wtf.
What a display of bowling today by India. Just spectacular.
It's almost the exact reversal of the Windies bowling vs. Indian batting back in the day..
So many interesting possibilities for the semis - the Aussies can miss both England and India if they win their last match against SA and finish top...
Man playing 2 spinners against England on a ridiculously short boundary was a bad decision.. Equally bad was the shambles batting by Dhoni & Jadhav at the death.
Ozzies gonna take #1 spot IMO.
It's all there for them to take if they're good enough.
Bangladesh with a HUGE over of 17 to get right back in this match maybe. India needs another wicket fast
They're down by 2 wicketd too many to do any real damage
Yeah that was their issue but they damn sure tried to come back
Yup. I'd say they had a pretty solid tournament overall.
Now that the Semis qualification's done, patiently waiting for Australia to drop their next match...
Great chase by the Bangers, and impressive tournament overall. They should be proud of how far they've come as a cricketing nation.
Love this headline from the Beebs..
New Zealand confirmed in last four as Pakistan cannot beat Bangladesh by 308 runs - clips, radio & text
Disastrous result for the Aussies who now have to play a resurgent England in the semis.
Playing NZ is such an unknown but I feel it's a risk I'd prefer over playing England.
Absolutely. NZ are a quality side but they have fewer match winners than the top 3 - I would be totally shocked if they somehow beat India in their semi.
Looks like I'm unlikely to be shocked - NZ already in trouble at 2/1 off 4 overs.
This is going to be ugly.
I'm pissed that they let them get to where they are - the pitch seems to be quite shitty and the NZ off cutters are going to be annoying to face in these conditions. Hopefully NZ can be restricted to 235-240.
The top of the NZ order (sorry, not sure what real cricket fans call the first two batsmen) has just been absolute garbage all tournament, DLS would make the total a bit less embarrassing but even in these conditions I can’t think India has any trouble clearing 237.
True - the problem with India is that their middle order hasn't done much either. Hopefully they can finish the match today.
As much as I'm enjoying watching highlights of Australia's win in the 2003 final, this rain break is getting more and more frustrating.
Hoo boy. This just got interesting all of a sudden.
God damnit, that was an epic collapse. If these two get it to 150 somehow, it'll be interesting.
Well so much for that. It was fun while it lasted. May NZ win it all!
Wtf happened to india
sir rj might still take this home
The Sir has fallen. Dhoni or bust...
dhoni = bust by now. he has lost it, think he shouldnt have been there tbqh, but how do you bench him
I think this match should be the writing on the wall - he should hang up his gloves and call it a day. As great he's been in the past, watching him today was just painful. He left it all a little too late, as with his recent performances.
against england he just quit, flat out quit. I think thats just unforgiveable
Fuckin Aye. Well.. NZ performed when it mattered and got it done today - took full advantage of the swinging conditions and the Indian team left it a little too much for a little too late.
Here's hoping that NZ wins it all!
If England plays like that, they’ll kill New Zealand
sorry paulski. This wasn't even a contest.
Went in with the wrong team, simple as that: Wade and M Marsh should have played instead of Stoinis and Handscombe. And the batting order was a mess - leave Carey at 7 and keep Maxwell at 5 or 6. They just lost the plot.
Just like India. I still think Dhoni should've come up the order at 4 and played his recent brand of cricket - it'd have helped stabilise the innings. Again, at this point it's just could've would've should've... I just hope NZ pulls it off. The pommies seem red hot after today and will be on cloud 99.
New Zealand gets Joe Root out!
If NZ wins this, the bowling they have showed int the last 2 matches, UNREAL
The tabloids are going to have a field day with this
By god, it is going to be a great day if England loses.
The shots in the crowd of England fans are the best.
