Slow outfield. Not everything through the infield is a boundry, is nice for a change.

Marlon Samuels saluting Ben Stokes was brilliant but the salute is getting a bit old.
It's Cottrell's "thing" - he's actually a soldier and does it after every wicket in any competition (so no Matt Hayden doing the cross and looking to the heavens in televised test matches only). If it weren't a personal thing for him, I'd tend to agree it's a bit floggish but clearly not given the context.

Shame about the weather.

This is the second match I've been looking forward to all day because I can stay up to watch it to the end. The other one was Pakistan v Sri Lanka .... and that got washed out as well. :(
Don't worry, the next three matches have a decent likelihood of being rain affected too

I think you popped this in the wrong thread mate
Haha, thank you - I did indeed!

On the right topic - a no result will completely kill South Africa's chances of making the finals (if not already confirmed). Additionally, you would have to feel sorry for the Windies again after their good start.

Good place for tournament cricket!!
The forecast indicates that the rain this week is moving in a kind of circle, so if there were reserve days there probably wouldn't be a problem. Instead, we stand a good chance at having 6/18 matches rain affected, potentially to the point of wash out (I don't expect that to eventuate, but it's a possibility).

Bad luck they haven't got the weather from last English summer. Heat wave over there it was. 28 degrees day in day out nearly killed them.

5pm UK time (2am AEST) is the cut off for a 20 over match. A point each is likely.
