Steve Smith given out to the most obvious bump ball.  Strange decision

Weird warm up game that, with all considered. Though I have to say, Australia bowled and fielded very well at the end. Some nice variations and slower balls. They'll be a threat with their bowling attack.

Comical how they put an ODI on the same day as the one day final.

Joe Root and getting out after 50.  There isn't a more iconic duo

Roy and Morgan have clearly been taking batting lessons from him too.

Saffers have done very well so far. Put the squeeze on. Hopefully Jos can push it a bit.

Moeen shouldn't be batting this high up, he's been awful with the bat for a while now.

Solid score.
It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

Not a disaster, but I reckon you'd have to say that score is a bit underwhelming considering how many got in. But, I reckon we can defend.

De Kock is the big wicket here - get him out and it’s tough work for SA

Jofra's so good.  Would have kept him for another over I think.

Englandesque middle order collapse from SA.

Best catch in the WC since that fat lad from Bermuda.

Canny start by England.
