    Oooh, that was good.

    Best result for us. If we play to our best we're more than capable of beating both the other two teams. With India there was always the chance that they could do something and beat us at our best.

    Gutting, we can never play the swinging ball properly.

    Bye Bye, once Smith is gone they don't have much else.

    Hmmm. Those flukey clams are edging all over the place but not to anyone's hands yet. They might accidentally put a score on here.

    Bowlers deck/conditions today, could be a repeat of the first match I reckon. Anything near 250 is competitive.

    Looks like a really good pitch to me. Bright, sunny, not exactly swing weather either.

    Commentators just said it was overcast and more cloud would develop in the afternoon?

    Just looked at the weather and it does appear that some clouds are coming in - can't see much movement out there though.

    Looks like we'll have to get our 220 up and match them quick before the rain comes in. No point running this on to tomorrow.

    The pitches at this world cup have been great. Always been something in it for the bowlers, which is how it should be.

    There we go - probable target of 220 now the cheat is gone.

    Let's get this wrapped up and home by 3.30

    Fantastic performance from England so far

    A good fast start and we could be home and hosed !!

    Same! Need to work hard tomorrow.

    Roy and Bairstow are a formidible limited overs opening pair. If they stay in much longer we have this in the bag.

    I'm not spending the day just watching cricket.

    I have the cycling on too.

    Building work at home means today is the day the BT/Sky box is out of action.
    So I'm sitting in the garden enjoying Test Match Special instead. A perfect summer's day thus far!
