Shakib is love, Shakib is life

I honestly think this is India's WC to lose. They have batting and bowling. England's bowling attack is average at best. Batdeep will only get you so far.

Hashmatullah with a magnificent 50.

No easy feat scoring a 50 against this awesome Kiwi bowling attack.

I don't see any side as the favourites the way Australia have been for most of the last 20 years or India were in 2011 but think that England are still the team to beat at home. They don't have one great bowler like a Starc or even a Boult but collectively I think they're quite good.

Have heard more than enough from these commentators about how the Bangladesh win against England in 2015 World Cup was a turning point for English white ball cricket.
The smugness earlier of thanking Bangladesh for knocking you out in 2015, for giving you what was one of the lowest days for your team in recent history let's be fair (was it Nasser?), as you are now all over them in this current game is just disrespectful and embarrassing. That'll do me for tonight thanks

England with another one of those massive scores we've been so accustomed to seeing from them over the last 3 or so years.

Yeah they haven't actually done anything yet. Just a silly country.

Just watching the Kayo mini... this Noor Ali from Afghanistan has a very David Boon-esque wiggle of the wrists before every shot.

There was another incident when Stokes was bowling where the ball hit the stumps with a decent impact but didn't dislodge the bails. Are the stumps too solid in the ground or the electric bails too heavy?

The electric bails are quite a bit heavier than traditional bails
