    Could still be an interesting pursuit with both Roy & Morgan injured.

    Joe Root leading us to an easy win for now ..
     
  10. It's all over, Root got exactly a ton and we only lost 2 wickets.

    Aussies and South Africa winning pretty easily .

    Former made to sweat a bit at the start of the Sri Lankan innings but their bowling is very strong.

    Only thing going to stop India is the rain !

    It is Manchester...

    Morgan 100 off 57 balls.

    EDIT now partnership of 164 with Root at about 11 runs an over. Morgan 13 sixes. Make that 14. 128 off 65 balls.

    Admittedly against Afghanistan....

    Great fun, but there's disappointment in the World T20 competition this afternoon. Jersey v Germany has been rained off without a ball being bowled. So we'll have to wait a bit for the Queen's subjects to have another chance to beat those sausage-munchers

    The story of Afghanistan cricket is the outstanding & most uplifting sporting story of the century.

    Nabi & the captain Naib are the 2 from the old days in the basement.

    They will get better & better. In 10 years the kids inspired by Rashid & Nabi will be adults. The fight in their batting was exemplary.

    Reminded me of us today.

    Yes though Fernando is now looking dangerous.
    EDIT - now very very very dangerous. Twonking Archer. Need to get him out.

    Doesn't look like they will get nearly enough. England to win by 9 wickets around 35-40 over mark

    Don't think we are going to see the fireworks of the other day!

    Might have to be a dig in ground out the runs effort.

    Poor cricket today. Now likely to miss opportunities to rest players for the semis.
