Cricket world cup 10:58 - May 26 with 26812 viewssainthelens

For the cricket followers on here, who's your fancy?
I've had good wedge on India. England will find a way to fck it up, and as long as the Indians arnt too knackered after the IPL I think they'll be to strong.

Bangladesh 5/1 to beat England today in Cardiff. England should be too strong, BUT if Bangladesh win the toss and bowl on what'll be a damp pitch.....worth a punt I wonder??

The other wash out over here scuppered any chance my team had of qualifying, if I remember right, cant be arsed to check.

Was yesterday result good for ABE's ?, there should be no chance of England not qualifying as they are expected to win it in many quarters, the last WC was a great tournament for ABE's England did not get out of a group of 7 teams with 4 qualifying, they lost every single game they played against the other test playing nations which was Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, NZ and Oz.

Disappointed my second team NZ lost in the final [pity they were away from home in the final].

I think he's contracted for the T2O on sky, so he's sitting this event out.

Next wicket to fall I assume they'll bring buttler in?

Ever since my son was... never conceived, because I've never had consensual sex without money involved... I've always kind of looked at you as... a thing, that I could live next to... in accordance with state laws.

Not a great day for England detractors so far. And who suggested Jason Roy might be dropped?

I said it would be harsh on him if he was. But that’s the way to address you critics. Great knock and hats off to Buttler as well.

Bangladesh sort of making a fist if it but I fear the run rate is going to run away from them. Well I hope so!!

Potentially the best game so far today. Stern test for both sides. Am hoping India put down a real marker now for the others.

I'd prefer India, just to keep quiet a few Aussie friends who have started to show their heads after a few difficult months!

Bumble's guide to Cardiff:

The ground: It's a Marmite venue. It's a personal thing but I'm afraid it just doesn't do it for me. I'd much rather have Swansea. I used to love playing at the old St Helen's ground. You had to come down all those steps to get a duck and walk all the way back up again….

Out and about: Take a flak jacket. It's not a place for the faint hearted, is this. It's a place that frightens me to death! But there are a few good pubs in the city centre. There's the Cottage, the Old Arcade and the Cambrian Tap. All three are refuge from the mayhem you'll find in Cardiff on a Friday and Saturday night but I'm afraid I'm not an expert on the restaurants because I just scuttle back into my hotel and get room service... But I do know Le Monde is a cracking fish restaurant popular with cricket folk.

Most of the old county players loved playing at St. Helen’s. Not least because the Glamorgan players gave them guided tours of the Mumbles/Gower pubs in the evenings.

Richie Benaud always said it was his favourite ground.

And John Arlott's.

The. Gods. Have. Spoken.

Arlott was a great friend of Dylan Thomas and wrote a poem about cricket at St. Helen's.

CRICKET AT SWANSEA

(Glamorgan in the Field)

From the top of the hill top pavilion

The sea is a cheat to the eye.

Where it secretly seeps into coastline

Or fades in the fellow-grey sky;

But the crease-marks are sharp on

the green

As the axe's first taste of the tree,

And keen is the Welshmen's assault

As the freshening fret from the sea.

The ball is a withering weapon,

Fraught with a strong-fingered spin,

And the fieldsmen, with fingers

prehensile

Are the arms of attack moving in.

In the field of a new Cymric mission

With outcricket cruel as a cat

They pounce on the perilous snick

As it breaks from the spin-harried bat.

On this turf, the remembered of rugby

'The Invincibles' - came by their name,

And now in the calm of the clubhouse

Frown down from their

old-fashioned frame.

Their might has outlived their

moustaches,

For photos fade faster than fame;

And this cricket rekindles the temper

Of their high-tramping, scrummaging

game,

Intense as an Eisteddfod anthem

It burns down the day like a flame.

It's worth picking up "What Sport Tells Us About Life" by Ed Smith (current England Selector) for the lovely, elegiac essay on St. Helen's.

The rest of it is pretty good too...

Taking the last 8 wickets for 84 runs?

What I meant was how unpredictable they are. They've now made a blinding start chasing....anyone's guess ?
