Finch just goes "smack smack" ..
For someone who has more money than god, who is the symbol and emblem of Indian cricket in its current context, Kohli is remarkably Australian in his mindset and his attitude to the game.Watched the cricket until the 41st over last night. When Maxwell holed out it was all over.
Bowling was difficult last night. It reminded me of street cricket with a tennis ball. Despite the rantings of the commentators the Indian bowlers were only slightly better than the Australians.
Warner was the problem last night. He looks to have the world on his shoulders. Terrible decision by him ran out Finch who looked set for a big one. And then he takes forever to score his 50 runs. He goes a run a ball and we’re close to winning the game.
I think he should sit out a couple and reflect on why he’s so worked up that he can’t cricket properly. Bring in Marsh and open with Usman.
Smith is the complete opposite and looks superhuman given the pressure he’s under.
Shout out to Virat for telling off the Indian (and pommy) spectators for booing Smith. I’m not a Virat fan but who knows after that gesture.
Blame the selectors who couldn't wait to drop players for Smith and Warner, despite Khwaja's vastly superior form as an opener compared with anywhere else in the order, Handscomb's dual ability to bat either offensively or to consolidate an innings depending on the situation, and the inclusion of Turner or someone else other than Maxwell who can hit the ball around faster than strike rate 100.Can’t win the World Cup in current form.
Were on target to make 370+ and didn’t even bat the overs out....
Good teams will punish you for those lapses later in the tournament.
