Was intending to stop in to watch this, but just gonna crack on with the day - India win seems inevitable.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

Nothing new - seen it all before and yet the same idiots get picked time and time again

There needs to be a thorough review of Pak cricket - need to produce batsmen of quality

Rohit should easily have been run out - they had a chance to restrict India to under 300

Agreed, Pakistan were also incredibly sloppy in the field early on, so not exerting any real pressure on the Indian batsmen. You can't afford to do that against a quality side.

Pakistan’s wounds are always self inflicted - they always find a way to beat themselves

What a game, it was probably meh for a neutral but India-Pakistan in a World Cup is just special for both sets of fans, regardless of how the games turn out. Rohit was fabulous, and I’m really happy with Rahul’s steady innings as a first time opener. Both played some gorgeous shots.

Pakistan, as has been discussed above, need an overhaul. My Pakistani mates strongly believe that corruption / political issues in the PCB have regressed or stagnated the team after the highs they experienced in the 90s. Here’s hoping they sort that s*** out. I also don’t know how strong their domestic leagues are, but I’ve been looking forward to the day when Pakistani cricketers are allowed back into the IPL. (No political discussions necessary, just hope both countries go back to a more peaceable moment in their histories.)

That ball by Yadav though 😍

As much as it pain me - well done! better team (stating the obvious here) won - I wonder if it would have been different (or a lot closer) had Rohit been run out

The big difference is this WC may be the Indian spinners - its where they have the edge on Eng, but Eng have the better pace attack (could be more evident if Bhuvi is ruled out)

RE Pakistani cricket - domestically, the level is very poor - they don't have the infrastructure or the standard of coaching that's required - I suppose all of this costs money, which given the current debt levels the country has, just isn't there. One of the reasons why they always produce good quicks is the "tape ball" phenomenon in Pak - I reckon nearly everyone plays it - batting is seen as the poorer relation, everyone just wants to bowl

Wonder how Eng will line up tomorrow - I would rest Wood and Rashid given both are carrying knocks - plus I doubt it if Morgan will make it either

I'd go with

Vince
Bairstow
Root
Stokes
Buttler
Ali
Dawson
Woakes
T Curran
Plunkett
Archer

The biggest mistake Pakistan made yesterday was the farcical decision to put India in.
RIP gejon/cajun/ Jon Lockwood.

It's always baffled me how the two countries have excelled in producing world-class talents in opposing skills: Pakistan's always had legendary pacers, and India has been the same with batsmen. Must be just the way the cricketing cultures matured separately, with each side giving more importance to only one of the skills. Unfortunately for Pakistan, India recognized this around 6-10 years ago and made strides to find and nurture bowlers, but since Inzi and the whole Salman Butt debacle, you're going through a very lean phase in finding top quality batsmen. It'll need to change at the scouting level, I think.

And every single time I look at Amir, I think of what could have been. Could've been one of the best bowlers in the history of the game, Butt & Asif should be locked in eternity forever. Ruined the kid's career.

I have only ever seen Rashid Khan suffer this level of punishment once - Gayle in the IPL - other than that he is/was the best spinner on the planet
