ICC World Cup, England v South Africa

Can any one else apart from the Mods see this topic?

Bairstow gone first ball!

Odds on not reaching the semis??

England of old, perhaps.

We’re going to win this thing!

Had a fun ride on an old Rattler to Katowice this morning Mrs P_F heading for an interview. That will leave me free for a Polish pub lunch and a beer with wifi hopefully when she heads off in a moment

Roy hits 50 but falls shortly after.

England 107 for 2 after 18 overs.

Morgan in.

Root goes for 51.

England 111-3 after 19 overs.

Stokes in.

I just ate a warm Nutella filled doughnut.
Almost as satisfying as seeing we just got to 200/3 off 35 overs

Morgan gone for 57 off 60.

England 217 - 4 off 37 overs.

Buttler in next.

Bollocky Shit Wank.

England 260-6.

Woakes in.

Woakes gone for 13.

England 285-7.

Plunkett in.

Just over 2 overs to drag it past 300.

Ffs 3 times I’ve checked back onto cricinfo.
3 bloody wickets…

Poor shot selection there from Woakes, either put your back into it if you go the aerial route or keep it on the ground.

294-7 with two overs left.

300-7 with 8 balls left.

Stokes gone for 89.

England 300-8 with one over to go.

England close on 311-8.

South Africa bowled really well. Lots of changes of pace. Frustrated all of our big hitters.

It’s going to be close, I reckon.
