Goes for 6 runs off his 12 balls. Effective to say the least.

We have a game!!!


Wiese is a one man team. Smashing Rashid all over the place.


27.5 an over needed. Even England cannot screw this up (can they?)

Job done, now let’s see if the Aussies will spite England.

What's the weather meant to be like in St. Lucia tomorrow? A washout there also puts us out.

No matter what they hint at, the Aussies won't throw the game tomorrow but might rest a few. However they also know we won't be daft enough to let Jacks bowl at them ever again and it'll be a lot closer if we face them again.

Have to feel for Scotland, that was a really good score and fair play to Australia for chasing that down.

1.30 AM kick off against Windies tho....as is one of the Semi finals.....rest all 3.30pms...

Def not been planned around us being able to watch over here....an easy adjustment in the Windies/States could have made it
a little easier.

Times suit India/Pakistan better...Makes sense commercially I spose..

But still don't see the problem with adjusting the 1.30am ....3.30pm thing for our games to suit us,we are the World Champions after all.

Could be wrong but pretty sure only us and Bangladesh are playing two consecutive days.

I know we’re lucky to still be in this tournament but the planning has been nothing short of shambolic.

Just watched this through. That was some run chase. Was getting worried as we struggled with the left armers but very good innings from a couple of oldies and the (as)Salt at the end was top stuff.

Good to see Archer effective, Rashid world class and Moeen full of confidence.

Interested to see how we go against the Saffers.

Well that was highly impressive. Didn’t see the game but randomly woke up in the middle of the night so checked the score and saw we were 56/0 chasing 180, and then went back to sleep mildly confident.

Brilliant hitting from Salt and Bairstow, looking like Salt is hitting form at the right time and glad for him, some on here having been saying he should be opening the batting for a while now.

SA should be a tougher game, don’t think they lost once in the group stages.

Should be, though they were pretty average against the USA. Some sloppy fielding and seemed unwilling/able to change plans when it wasn’t working at times.

Due to this crazy (seemingly Indian bias) schedule we won’t have long to wait.

Clever bowling from Mo to get the wicket of Hendricks.

As an aside, they’ve been showing drone footage over St Lucia. Breathtaking.

And Markram drags one onto his stumps from Rashid and goes for 1.

113-4 with 5.2 overs left. If we can restrict them to 160 we’ll have a great shout.
