Huge amount of respect for Virat Kholi. He has white line fever, but who doesn't. Absolute legend in my eyes. If Aussies don't win the World Cup, I hope India do.

Lot of respect for him for standing up to his own supporters. Has definitely softened my opinion of him

Still dont want india to win though. My choice is windies after aus.

A good win last night in the CWC against Pakistan. Made hard work of though when we lost the last six wickets for about 30. We should have scored around 330-350 and ended up with 307.

Anyway, a win is a win.

Finch is going very well, I was worried when Smith Stoinis out. I forgot how good Behrendorff is. :D How good was Starcs yorker? New Zealand and India to go you would expect. Great win against the Poms.

Behrendorff's 2nd ball was something special. Doesn't get any better than a ripping in-swinger that goes through the gate and takes out middle stump!

Loved the Behrendorff and Starc deliveries.

It's actually getting interesting for England. Aust and NZ are in the top 4 and India will seal their spot if they beat WI today. They still have another game in hand so could be top of the table with two wins.
If SL beat SAf tomorrow it will be England (8), Sri Lanka (8), Pakistan (7) and Bangladesh (7), all having played 7 of 9. And they have done all their playing with each other except for one game, Pak vs. Ban Fri 5Jul.

It's looking like 11 points will get a semi final spot. 10 points may do it, but possible there will be a 10 pointer in and a 10 pointer out.

That is the only Semi final we have ever lost in a world cup? ( I may be wrong however)

I was talking about the world cup with my s/o a few weeks back while New Zealand were quietly racking up wins without anyone noticing and said if we don't win this thing I hope they do.

Go the Kiwis!

Dalby is right. That's our first ever WC semi loss.

Saved our worse performance for yesterday.

Like Jourgo, the Kiwis were my pick as the dark horse. I actually had England, India, the Kiwis as my top 3, with Australia fighting it out with SAf for fourth. They are the best 'team' in the competition, as against the best bunch of individuals playing together.

We have a pretty good record at Lords. Is the weather going to be a problem?
