I should expect England will just squeeze home though as 64 Runs Req'd from 54balls isn't out of the question. Especially if they have a batting powerplay in hand (which I'm not sure about)

As an aside, would love to see the dutch do it. Not because it's england, but because it would be a proper f%~k you to the ICC who want to exclude associate members from the next CWC in 2015

They don't bring a lot commercially to offset the costs and too many of them have an unfortunate knack of knocking out bigger sides, further lowering interest.

And the BCCI care only about money - last world cup their side was knocked out by a relative minnow in Bangladesh and a billion Indians stopped watching the tournament. Anybody who ever thought the ICC were bad for cricket can't have envisaged the BCCI taking over instead.

Thats actually the team jersey. And a rather nice one. Too small for me, mind.

Ireland and Bangers currently slugging it out. Ireland have clawed their way back in to the game after a quick start and the score is 80/3 after 14 overs.

However, Ireland have removed Bangers 2 best batsmen, Iqbal and Siddique, in the process. If we're tight with our bowling and fielding we can beat these chaps

At 134/4 after 30 overs, we have them precisely where we want them. The bowling from Dockrell, Mooney and Botha has been superb. If we could knick another wicket or two in the next 5 overs, their tail will be under far too much pressure to reach any decent total.
