    Pretty comprehensive that. Really solid performance.
    From what I've seen so far
    Australia
    Sri lanka
    England
    look the best teams
    strange how lacklustre the sub cont teams have looked.
    I fancy Oz strongly tbh.

    Sri Lanka especially - they've not even come close to what they're capable of imo ... and India, well their bowling has always been up n' down.

    South Africa - I can't admit to following this long term but if their players played as well as they play in the Indian 20/20 league, they'd do well but I just don't think it ever clicks in the green/gold colors. Oh well.

    I wouldn't be surprised if England take it.

    149 to win then for England, slow pitch not easy

    No KP of course as well

    If we don't win then we could meet the Aussies in the Semi rather than the final

    I assume KP will come back after a few days of cootchie coo !!!

    Some good batting after a little twitch mid innings. Squeaky finish but should continue the winning streak.

    Fabulous performance again yesterday from Bresnan and Morgan.
    Mistakes in the field though need to be sorted out.

    [/quote]Depends on results tonight. If they get thrashed and Sri Lanka win massively positions could change but its very doubtful. Im 99% sure the Aussies will top their group.

    Cheers mate.

    I'm not sure who i'd prefer out of the Sri Lankans (no Muralitharan) and the Windies.

    [/quote]We pasted the WIndies in our first game for 180 or something. I dont think we should fear anyone. Australia look massive massive favourites on this form, but weve got a chance here.
    Even if we dont win, its a massive move forward for the ecb. To go out and select what is in effect a concept squad, picked solely for their 20/20 prowess is such a breath of fresh air. If this had been a year ago our team would have been Cook, Strauss, Collingwood, Pieterson, Shah, Bopara, Prior, Anderson etc etc to go and stick your nuts on the chopper with the likes of Kiesweter and Morgan is fantastic. I really have hope for us in the shorter forms with this attitude.

    I never want the Aussies to win. I hope we play Pakistan in the final.

    What's the criteria for "foreigners" to qualify for the England cricket team these days, watching 2 episodes of Last Of The Summer Wine?

    Not bad at all - 20/20 runners up. Great effort.
