World T20 cup 21:53 - Jun 8 with 2339 viewspioneer

Another insipid performance. We do better when it rains…at least we got a point v jocks.

Interesting tournament with wins for Scotland, US and Canada. I had to pinch myself to realise it was not the curling world championships.

Sadly it didn't rain when the Aussies came to play- conceding 70 runs in first 5 overs was not the plan I'm sure

The over of Jacks in the powerplay really set Australia on course. Not sure we will see that again. I suspect Topley will come in for Wood.

Great to see a large sell out crowd watching a cricket game in New York. OK its the India effect but still a great sight.

But that pitch is something else. I think they said its the groundsman from Adelaide who is in charge of that.

Seems to have been a new innovation that hasn't worked. Grown the pitch in Adelaide, shipped it to the States then transported to New York by truck. Clearly something has gone wrong as they were meant to be hard true pitches.


With Scotland hammering Oman, we need 2 amazing results against Namibia and Oman and hope the Aussie/Scotland game isn't rained off. we are miles behind on Run rate. Antigua is apparently the driest of the Caribbean island so hopefully we get full games. However playing the World Cup as the area is transitioning into the rainy season seems odd but I assume the IPL stopped it being played a month earlier

England knock off the small target set by Oman (bowled out for 47) in just 19 balls, which means our net run rate is now better than that of Scotland, who'd need to beat the Aussies to knock England out (or if the weather intervenes to force a tie)

Yes, if the weather intervenes in either Scotlands game or Englands game then England are toast.

Australia "drop" 5 catches and allow Scotland to score 180 in 20 overs. Hmmm...

But chase them down with balls to spare. Game on, can’t see us beating India or Aussies though.

Given uncertain weather conditions, every match has become something of a lottery

It could be that England's luck began to turn yesterday, when it looked like the Namibia game might be abandoned before the Aussies held their nose and nerve against Scotland. There's enough talent in most of the remaining teams to take it to the wire

Our super 8 group is with South Africa, USA, and West Indies. Quite favourable with both teams you mention in the other group with Afghanistan and probably Bangladesh.

Got to be honest - not been that impressed with SA so far. With the bat anyway. They had by some distance the easiest group and made very hard work of several games. Be interesting to see what they do now. Can see wins being shared between us, WI and SA and you'd have to assume we all beat the USA.

We have got the weaker group for sure, the one thing nobody knows is which games will be affected by rain. If it is India, then you can safely assume the ICC will decree all future tournaments must be played inside. In India.

Excellent win v West Indies...

Bring on South Africa and then hopefully a semi Final after the USA game.

Not convinced by this format at all. Super 2 x fours.

First complete performance of the tournament for us. Always in control, and that over where Salt cracked 30 was the highlight along with Rasheed’s bowling. Crowd went from party to funeral atmosphere very quickly, and started leaving well before the end. Win tomorrow could put us in the semi before the USA game

Yes... Big game today v a decent SA side.

A win would be great to keep the recent momentum going.

South Africa style choke today. After being behind most of the innings, a brilliant Brook/Livingstone sets us up with 25 to win from 18 balls with 6 wickets remaining and 2 set batsmen. Somehow we blew it.

Open group now and if West Indies beat South Africa it could be 3 teams on 4 points with run rate deciding it
