We were fortunate and somewhat flukey to pick up the dangerous Williamson’s wicket so cheaply, but who cares he was out!

Good team performance with our bowlers keeping it tight and so effectively restricting NZ’s run chase.

Have to fancy us at Edgbaston against anyone, will be good to get the Aussies out of the way.

190 / 7 off 43.

Should end up being an achievable target, need to keep the cheat off strike and the total will be manageable

That was my first ODI game ever, not a bad one to start with. Absolutely brilliant stuff. Smith's over was the highlight and that 3rd 6 neallry clearing the stands.

the best atmosphere i have experienced at a sporting event was an ODI against India in the Hollis stand, simply brilliant and football has never come close to it sad to say !

i envy everyone who was there yesterday !

Very poor last 3 hours from England after a brilliant first 40 odd overs.


Badly missed Anderson or dare I say, Archer when bowling to Siddle and Lyon.

Not much to disagree with here..

Looking forward to seeing Archer

Despite hating him - Steve Smith is incredible.

Awful day at Edgbaston again today, Englands attack utterly clueless and toothless. From 122-8 on the first afternoon Australia now cannot lose the test match. Appalling from England, they declared 7 down today so their last 9 wickets have amassed 649 runs.

Losing Anderson couldn't have helped, but not having an in form spin bowler seems to have been the main issue. Moeen didn't look on it in the morning session I watched. Got to hope we can dig in for a draw now. No early wickets!
