You have to feel for Afghanistan, so close yet so far. India used a get out of jail free card today, England threw theirs away yesterday. Shami hat trick to wind things up. Thought the Umpires were shit in this game, far too many wide's not given for bouncers which looked a tad too high and a few of their LBW decisions/none decisions were wank for both teams. 

 

I don't mind India in general as a team, but for some reason I can't stand Dhoni, he's far too up his own arse.

NZ made a healthy score after a shaky start. WI innings going down the same path so far. Gayle started off like a snail, opened up a bit now like.

Gayle always bats like that now. Very quiet the first few overs. Take a while to really judge the pitch. Pick the lines and lengths he can really go after.

Yeah, fine when it works because he can score quickly to make up, but he's been out cheaply of late whilst eating balls up. I really rate this Hetmyer kid, batted well in most of the Windies innings. Looks a real talent.

New Zealand are a bit like Spurs. A good side, well-coached and with a smattering of real class, yet allowed to go about their business without the spotlight ever falling on them.

Considerably less utter bellends in their team though.

That was some knock by Braithwaite only to hole out with a whole over left. He should have just gone for a single or trusted his mate to get a single and give him the strike, because Henry (if he was to bowl the last over) was shot.

While true, another yard or two further and they win.

 

Shouldn't have needed an innings like that. The collapse was utterly pathetic. It's actually the difference between the likes of the West Indies and Pakistan, and teams like New Zealand. Much, much more talent. Considerably less cricket intelligence.

Agree. Just thought henry was more than likely to be the bowler he could wack out of the park. That last ball by Neesham was pretty easy just to knock for a single.
