    has begun.

    So far, match is pretty even between SA & Eng.

    Anyone else watching?

    Any players you're looking out for?

    England on top.
    Important partnership this for SA.
    Archer's been excellent, Windies must be sick

    I think we made that very easy on England with the bat ... far too easy imo.

    True, lots of silly shots from the recognized batsmen.
    Should have been working the ball around and try to take it further down the innings before hitting out.
    Faf, Quinny, Hash, Rassie all out playing low percentage shots

    SA brilliant bowling even without Steyn. Their batsmen and fielding appear to be from the 80s

    Our bowling isn't brilliant - and our batsmen have been really poor the whole tournament (expected).
    Our fielding used to be brilliant ... but well ... world cup = time to choke.
    It's pretty frustrating ... especially when AB was willing to come back for the tourney (i.e. great fielder, great batter and a game winner).
    Time to retire the elderly - Alma, Duminy etc and build around the young kids in hope they can develop into a competent ODI team.

    Nah. you have a very promising bowling lineup. A great base to build off.

    Anyways. three exceptional games - England Sri Lanka, India Afghanistan, and NZ Windies over the last 2 days.

    Team needs to be gutted from the top down ... I think I've seen grass grow faster than how we bat on the power play ... The idea the team was 'good enough' when AB came calling was shocking ... I hope there's some up n' coming kids to strengthen the shaky (it is what it is) core of QdK, Ngidi, Rabada & Markram.

    True - but when you have your greatest batting talent wanting to come back, you take him back ... it's not like he was a cunt as a teammate etc

    Hahahahahaaahhaa MS Dhoni is a stone cold legend. What a fucking dude, zero fucks given, didn't even attempt to hide what he was doing. The commentary during his innings was some of the best I've heard.

    I can see england suffering from overconfidence by thinking they genuinely beat India, and duly collapsing against new zealand. As long as pakistan avoid the local sisha bars and put some effort into their preparations, then they're the favourites to get into the top four for me.

    Don't think Dhoni strategically lost the match at all. He's simply past it, and has been for a while.

    We were trying to win it till the 45th over, and suddenly gave up? Not like the loss eliminated Pakistan anyway.

    Yeah, this is a nonsense theory. The fact that Kohli was having a good whine about the boundaries afterwards tells you they wanted to win.

    If England remember they've been the best team in the world in the past few years instead of playing like bitches they'll beat New Zealand.

    Probably worth sticking a fiver on it, in the event the dubai mafia are in any way involved in the outcome. Especially if Bangladesh are the ones to win the toss and inexplicably decide to have a bowl first, then it's probably worth sticking your house on it.
