Lol @ the UN not being able to beat Pakistan. Thoroughly enjoy the irony of all their imports letting their adopted nation down today.

The UN are a class side when there is nothing on the line. They turn to water as soon as the words “World Cup” are mentioned.

Morgan currently planning his escape route back to his homeland when he inevitably leads this lot to failure.

England don't give themselves the best chance of winning games like this when they only select 4 specialist batsmen and 6 bowling options.

It's playing with the handbrake on having a 6th set of 10 overs just in case anyone bowls rubbish. That's not how you win world cups. It lost them the T20 world cup final. Moeen didn't bowl a ball in that final.

If they had Hales at 3, it protects the finishers and gives them a better chance of playing with the hammer down for 50 overs.

Thing is Vince isn't Hales.

Very typical of England. Have consistently played the game with a mentality of not to lose which means they don't play to win.
