True - India v New Zealand off today so England can take advantage tomorrow - if its not raining!
Albeit with less Spanish argot flying round the dressing room.
I'm growing to hate Chris Gayle.
Excellent. That worked.
Could still be an interesting pursuit with both Roy & Morgan injured.
I'm there today. Going well so far injuries aside
Joe Root leading us to an easy win for now ..
It's all over, Root got exactly a ton and we only lost 2 wickets.
Thanks mate, I was wondering as this hadn't been reported anywhere.
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...
Windies pulverised by Bangla boys.
The new order of things.
Shakib could get into most test sides - excellent all rounder .
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....
Morgan 17 sixes in his 148. Highest number ever in an ODI innings.
102 runs from 17 balls.......
Rashid Khan is ranked number 3 in the world for ODI cricket. He’s just celebrated his ton!!!
Finished with figures of 9-0-110-0
Impressive hitting from Morgan and co.
How many will we win by?
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
It's all over, Afghanistan got exactly 247 and only lost 8 wickets.
Moral victory ?
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.
Good start for England today
Yes though Fernando is now looking dangerous.
EDIT - now very very very dangerous. Twonking Archer. Need to get him out.
No fear - the rocking horse has got him out ( Mark Wood)
Doesn't look like they will get nearly enough. England to win by 9 wickets around 35-40 over mark
Great start ..... Bairstow gone 2nd ball.
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.
8 down - curtains for us against the slinger!
Aussies up next ..
Or Stokes and Rashi... oh FFS!
Stokes and Archer to be there at the end.
Poor cricket today. Now likely to miss opportunities to rest players for the semis.
