...England might just be in a winning position here if Collers and I.R. keep going.
I hate you. If we lose, I am going to burn down your house and shit in your cricket helmet.
but remember the cricket helmet has holes in it, so i'd advise against shitting in it just incase.
Glenn McGrath is my favourite cricketer ever.
IF "the sherminator" and "collers" keep going. Watch it all fall apart if one of them gets out.
But anyway that straight six Collingwood hit off McGrath was magic as was McGrath's dropped catch. In fact he's having an allround shocker today.
with 7 wickets left shouldn't be a problem. But if these two get out Flintoff isn't in the best form and then who have we got? Nixon?
And I actually prefer reading BBC Sport to watching the cricket. Weird
...i say i think cause I have no idea what this is supposed to mean:
"Collingwood had fielded brilliantly and was the first to reach his fifty as the two right-handers brought the required run rate beneath six runs per over.
The only problem was a required run rate in excess of six runs an over. "
batting collapse anyone?
It will happen
i'm still concerned about the required rate....
isn't impossible by any means. There was a time when I'd be supremely confident of that chase with Freddie in bat.
Just cemented his place in the WC side.
I still feel Australia have the slight advantage though.... One wicket to drop...
just don't lose a wicket.
Glenn McGrath is my favourite cricketer ever
we shall see
Stupid run. Was not there.
Nixon is a pretty big hitter... Last hope.
But I'll like him if he does the job today
I'm quite tense.
I DO. Someone? Please?
15 from 14...
this is brilliant, my office is at a standstill watching it. 1/8 to win it.
nerves are jangled and all that... Bracken to bowl the last over
Yes, out of bed. Got to be at the job centre at 12.
bbc is so slow
i will cry
I'm going to want to celebrate
and colly hits the winning runs... One of the great innings
Someone give that man an MBE.
well, good result whatever these 4 balls bring
I feel that. I really do! It's like the old days
I'd quite happily fuck Paul Collingwood.
beating Australia feels so so good...
me saying things make the opposite thing happen! hooray. Scarlet Johannsen will never sleep with me!
Liek, we're going to win the World Cup!
great game - might even watch the highlights. Yipple.
its all coming up me
to make about your last sentence. None at all.
i really should have learned to vet such things. But I don't care. I want to see Collers' catch :(
The Edgbaston of ODIs?
It certainly sounded like it.
