    Steady start 31/0 after 6.

    Possible showers on the radar.

  4. #303
    50/0 after 10.

  5. #304
    Steve Smith comes on and gets whacked for 20 off his first over!

    116/0 after 16.

  6. #305
    Bairstow out for 34 and suffered a groin injury earlier trying to make his ground. Looks likely to miss the final.

    Root hits 3 4s in his first over!

    136/1 after 18. Cruising.

  7. #306
    Roy given out caught for 85 despite not touching it. Bairstow wasted the review on his lbw.

    147/2 in the 20th over.

    Australia crushed. Eng win by 8 wickets. Absolute stroll for them.

    I know, thanks for the reminder.... 🙃

    Hopefully history repeats itself and New Zealand win it but Iíve been hugely impressed with how England have bounced back since that shock Sri Lanka defeat.

    All in all, itís going to be a fantastic final and one that Iím really looking forward to watching.

    That was a very odd review, great performance from England though.

    And here we are! Itís the Final!

    Sunday brings us England against New Zealand at Lordís. There are at least two other sides who would have thought they could have been here but today will produce a first-time winner. Donít know about you, but I think itís been a fantastic tournament, lots of great games, only a couple that were meaningless but still entertained.

    Weather looks set fair, slight risk of early showers building on early rain this morning. This suggests an advantage bowling first and I think that may be key to NZ securing a victory. They have a lot of talent in their pace attack and they will not want Roy and Bairstow on a dry and flat pitch.

    Having said that, England, in all formats, always look wobbly at Lordís. Intriguing stuff!

    Prediction time, NZ are more than capable of beating England and have the bowlers and batters to win a World Cup Final. They are also due one, having made repeated appearances in the closing stages of this tournament. The likes of Guptill and Taylor have a last chance to bat the way they can.

    But.......England have so much depth with the bat. And the bowling looks fine, with the slight tweak they made by dropping Moeen and bringing in Plunkett.

    Iím hedging my bets. If NZ get to bowl first and exploit the wicket in the first hour then they are in with a chance. Otherwise itís hard to see past England and thatís why I am backing them to win.

    Itís coming home...

    LOL NZ just won the toss and chose to bat.

    Shows how much I know about cricket

    On a serious note, I suspect it is a statement of intent to go out and set a total, but Eoin Morgan doesnít sound unhappy about bowling first.

    I really didnít expect them to go for batting. The first few overs could be pretty explosive.
    (Theyíll probably be as dull as ditchwater now Iíve said that.)

    Iím the same but Mrs Mibbes likes both the tennis and F1. Fortunately I converted her to cricket a good while back!

    That was my thinking - both the potential for early fireworks and by stating that it ensures plodding stuff as a consequence

    Intriguing stuff, obviously something in the pitch for England but Guptill starting to show what he is capable of.

    Very much a game to settle back into the seat and watch it unfurl.

    A wasted review. Even I could see it was out.

    Obviously we will see at the end but yes, on such wickets do games potentially turn.

    Taylor still due a big score and NZ will want to get the run rate up.

    Some lovely bowling from Jofra Archer, I think he is a stick-on for the Ashes now, which will create interesting discussions when it comes to selecting the bowling unit. If Jimmy Anderson remains injured England have found themselves very lucky in that they have an opener who the opposition wonít have worked out yet.

    Think New Zealand will win this today. England have bowled to short.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there is a rain delay as it's ever so bleak where I'm sat in North London. If there isn't rain then the ball will swing all day in these conditions.

    270 might be a decent total IMHO.
