    Scare losing a few wickets mid innings but fortunately Stokes held firm .

    Stokes was excellent. Kept his composure to get the job done.
    Strange that with such a short boundary I only recall England hitting 2 sixes and they were down the ground.
    If Malan hadn't pulled his groin and come in earlier there might have been more dot balls as he is slow to start with. Might have been a blessing in disguise.

    A week ago South Africa were beating India quite impressively .

    Now out altogether.

    How things can change so quickly!

    If I'm right a couple of the Dutch players are from South Africa but with Dutch heritage from a while back. Colin Ackermann for certain. Still limited numbers playing wise despite a lengthy history of playing the sport. Always produce a decent fast bowler. van Troost in the past van Meekeren today.

    South Africa have a history of choking for inexplicable reasons

    Yes, really pleased for them. I thought the recent series in Pakistan was hugely enjoyable and played in a fantastic spirit. Happy for Nawaz who had a nightmare last 3 deliveries against India and must have thought he cost his team a place in the last four, but then Netherlands beat SA and now Pakistan have made the final. Great stuff

    Less so now.

    Great start from Hales and Butter.
     
  14. So pleased for Hales that he found his way back from the wilderness. He is such a destructive batsman in this form of cricket.

    England win by 10 wickets in 16 overs. Nice finish with a 6.

  20. Highest ever partnership in 20/20 world cup cricket, and averaging 11 runs an over ie almost 2 runs a ball. Stunning batting.
     
  21. We can still catch Brentford.

    That is some performance from the opening pair but thought we bowled well as well and thought the total wasn't enough. I didn't think we would like that though. Just hope we haven't peaked too soon. Weather looks awful for the final and the reserve day

    Great win. Rashid was outstanding and completely killed India's momentum. We pretty much played the perfect game.

    Just hope we haven't peaked too soon.

    Blink and you missed it.

    Incredibly impressive to go out and play like that .

    Channel 4 are showing the final as in 2019.

    Shame we'll seemingly at best get a reduced overs final

    It's a fantastic performance, but it's such an up and down format. Could easily have been us that didn't turn up and we're slagging them all off.

    Lets hope they can get a game in otherwise be a very sad end to the tournament.

    England win the toss and put Pakistan in.
