Some sad news today Former England captain Bob Willis has passed away. RIP

Once again englandshire get across the line with help from match officials, Stokes was plumb lbw and it was incedibly never given, Aussies must of course look at their own error in using their last re

My prediction for the final :)

New Zealand will win. Kane Williamson will be adjudged 'Player of the Series' as well as 'Man of the Match for the finals.

 

Hopefully it will be more accurate than my previous prediction of Australia winning

i feel it should be Australia vs NZ in the final

sorry @Kent Guitar and @Bosstralian

Can't speak for others, but I'd like to be an honorary New Zealander (at least for Sunday).

Given our ODI record for the last 18 months to 2 years, I must admit I wasn't necessarily even expecting semi final action much less the final. But still sucks losing to the old enemy

At least yesterday showed it isn't just bat first win the game.It was a good toss to win but the Aussies messed it up along with some good English bowling,looking at their batting line up made me think if we could get beyond the top 3 then we had got a good chance,Smith played a typical Smith innings but apart from Carey he had no real support.

I was surprised though how easy we chased it down,there were comments before the game that Starc didn't seem quite right.

Sunday again could go either way,I think Lords doesn't do England any favours as it's less of a home ground than say Edgbaston because of it being very traditional there so you have less vocal support.

What would give you more pleasure Doc?

England not making the Semifinals, or England making the Final and losing in either a close or humiliating manner?

Dream On. Nobody likes to get taken apart with the eyes of the world upon them. I can only imagine the hurt & humiliation you must be going through. But never mind you will get over it provided you can come up with another way of sneaking sandpaper into your pockets without getting caught.

Australia can’t treat ODI cricket like rubbish for 3 1/2 years and expect to win every World Cup.

Looking forward to my favourite batsman The Freckled Dravid (Kane Williamson) lifting the cup on Monday Morning.

I am enjoying the World Cup Tupac. I hope you are enjoying it too. 

Not sure why anyone would feel humiliated watching such a fun and interesting event.

Sorry - I thought you were an Aussie & rise to the bait. Glad you're enjoying it though. I expect not as much as me

Truth be known Boss I spent a bit of time at fine leg and in the gully but rarely in the covers.

I was locally renowned for my swingers and seamers and occasionally gave them a sniff with a bit of chin music.

I think I will leave it there.

I'll certainly be in your camp Daisey (notwithstanding I don't actually know when the final is).
