Woakes was no better than Archer, both bowled too short, far too short and were shown the way by Starc and co later in the day.


The less said about Wood the better. Just hasn't got anything about him. Same goes for Vince. We're in a poor run at the minute, but we've been racking up big scores against all comers for the last 3 or 4 years, not just against the minnows, so that is very knee jerk...


Fancy us to win on Sunday against India with Jason Roy (and hopefully Plunkett) back into the side.

England are paying the price for being too casual and complacent v Pakistan and Sri Lanka.  They are just not ruthless enough when compared against the Windies from 1980's or Aussies from 1990's.

I don't see England beating India.  I reckon India could field 3 exceptional teams in this World Cup.  This is powered from the decade running IPL and the pressure that brings plus drawing from a 1.2 bn population where Cricket is the No11.  My dad was in Mumbai at 10am on a Monday and there were cricket matches being played everywhere!!!

As for Eng v Aus, Starc is by far the best bowler from any team and prides himself on taking wickets not economy rate.

Jesus Chrkst, looks like we going out. With Pakistan favourites to win their last two games, we need to beat New Zealand and India. How did we make such a pigs ear of this?

Did we peak too early in the lead up? Knew the pressure of a home World Cup would get to us. Going to need a monumental effort to win 4 games on the bounce against the best teams in the world now, especially with how we have been playing.

Or are we victims of an over inflated national ego, cricket / rugby / football every tournament we enter, we big ourselves up and then almost always fail. We are just not as good as we think we are, the rest of the world know it but we remain in denial it’s all a bit sad actually

There is a lot of ability in the England batting but Root and Stokes aside, it needs a bit more brain engagement under pressure from the rest. Starc's bowling at those two pretty much decided the match the other day.

We’ve really missed Jason Roy who is a world class Batsman/opener. Quite simply James Vince is terrible who can’t get past 25 so it puts a lot of pressure on Root who comes in at 3. Morgan is fantastic but far too aggressive and needs to manage how he bats better
Ohhhhh Albion we love you!

I really like the England cricketers. Compared to their footballing counterparts they are relatively down to earth and decent role models for youngsters (on the field anyway). I always get behind them whereas I am not arsed about England football.

That said, far too many of them have lost form at the wrong time. Rashid is not bowling at his best and Morgan (apart from smashing Afghanistan around the park) has had a stinker of a tournament. Vince is obviously not upto it and our best one day player, Jos Buttler, is struggling a little. Just bad timing really.

I can't see us beating India on Sunday, so it'll be curtains for us which obviously is very disappointing.
All time favourite player: Jan Kozak

Great innings today, apart from Morgan, kids stuff from him again, looks like it will be enough and we'll live to fight another day.
Just wish Morga would drop this arrogant ice man image and admit we are under pressure as the home side, might free his shoulders up a bit.
Quality and we are favourites again, come on England!

If we don't dismiss Kohli soon we'll lose this game.

Looking at the next game we must surely bat first if we win the toss? Forget pitch, swing and all that bollox just get in and post a score, only time we've struggled is when chasing. Keep it simple and play to our strengths

Phew, that was a relief, but much still to do to qualify for the semis

Tremendous win under pressure.  Just got to beat the Kiwis.

Concerned about the Aussies with Starc, easily the best bowler.

Great result for England. I have tickets for the Semi at Edgbaston. Really hoping England beat New Zealand for a England v India Semi final game. There won't be any of this last 10 over conservative stuff to protect wickets to improve the run rate.

I can see splitting teams on equal points by run rate in the table changing it ruined the end of yesterdays game.

Nail biting stuff at the moment, great comeback by the Kiwi's to demolish our middle order.

Great win. Hopefully Sri Lanka was the kick up the arris we needed and we can go on and win it now.
