Went to bed with NZ 81/3 at lunch and Handsome Kane launching a recovery, woke up to the headline Williamson the lone bright spot in NZ wreckage. Going to a long series.

Good to see some top quality 她kesing from (checks) Foakes.

Blimey how good are this West Indies team? Yikes. There have been a few stodgy games and wash outs in this world cup but this is fab.


#43

Oh look. An England team relying on the lower order to score the runs. What a novelty.


#44

Proper thriller in the UAE. Pakistan chasing 176 on a difficult pitch, looked to be cruising after a few early wickets, but have just lost 4-8. Two wickets left, need 21 to win. Two decisions overturned by 3rd umpire in the last couple of overs (one each way).


#45

Nail-biting stuff.


#46

just been watching the highlights, that straight six from campbell off gordon :heart_eyes: like a miniature jason roy.


#47

Up till midnight watching a dodgy stream on my laptop, and then that last wicket, and the review <3. 4 run win, back from the dead :slight_smile:

DOG ON THE PITCH KLAXON

BOOOOOOP

Jonny loves scoring hundreds


#50

Well played Jonny, any hundred in Sri Lanka is a hard earned hundred.

Dont get the fuss about his being dropped, though. He was injured for the first test, England didnt want to change a winning team for the second test and now hes back for the third. Youd think he was sent back to the Lions or home or spent 5 years in the international wilderness or something. Headlines wont write themselves I guess.

2019 then, I would rather

  • England win the World Cup
  • England regain the Ashes.

#52

There are any number of other teams that could win the World Cup if England dont, but fuck letting the Aussies win anything.


#53

England just one game away from winning the world Cup this weekend! Pity its on at midnight (and that Brunt isnt playing) but should be a great game and, fingers crossed, smashing the aussies (cue huge defeat)


#54

Ooft will try and get a bit of this in live if I can.


#55

Theyve never won the world cup. Ashes would really hurt (maybe it can be a draw), but it would be really nice to just get that damned world cup win done


#56

I think Id agree with you if it was a year where we were looking to retain rather than regain.


#57

Care more about the current dead rubber test than an ODI world cup


#58

also I reckon a World Cup win would get us more kudos with the lads from the subcontinent on Youtube comments sections and on Twitter

I mean, why not both Jezza?
