Delayed due to rain. Come on England!
Shane Bond double hat-trick.
and anderson is passed fit to play.
Now he can send down some half-trackers for Jacob Oram to cart into the stands.
Sorry, really pessimistic today
would make me the happiest man in Harrow this afternoon.
NZ win toss and bat. I can sense a sub 150 score on the 'cards'.
Brave like a fox.
England: E C Joyce, M P Vaughan, I R Bell, K P Pietersen, P D Collingwood, A Flintoff, J W M Dalrymple, P A Nixon, L E Plunkett, J M Anderson, M S Panesar
New Zealand: S P Fleming, L Vincent, R L Taylor, S B Styris, P G Fulton, J D P Oram, C McMillan, B B McCullum, D L Vettori, J E C Franklyn, S E Bond
I've got him!! C'mon! I'm having to be unpatriotic I'm afraid.
This is what you get for stealing players form other coutries. Err...come on KP!
young Ian Ronald. A nice half century and a few catches would be pleasant.
Ed Joyce - officially the worst fantasy team pick of ALL TIME. I cry myself to sleep.
and they still got Joyce out second ball. Christ.
I vividly remember my brother picking Pierluigi Casiraghi in his dream team when he was at Chelsea. He played about 40 seconds, got injured, then retired.
Joyce should be nowhere near the team and that's not just reaction speaking
only joking, he is a goon.
Don't worry, he's out of there as soon as cricketweb lets me log on. The bastard. I show no faith to people who let me down!
and Andre Nel in his game
see I'm cheering every boundary here
there goes another boundary
that time! I'm pretty sure Michael Vaughan is my favourite English cricketer of all time
so I can watch this.
Its pretty staggering that Joyce has been picked ahead of Strauss, despite always playing shit.
Strauss has been playing even shitter.
Where's Owais Shah?
Watch him get out now.
neither of those two chumps are anywhere near my team
Neither of them are in my team, I am just annoyed by this performance.
I like Ian Bell
I used to sepise him, but he's won me over...
though I may have to reconsider my feelings about him now
I steered well clear of any England batsman.
Franklin and Oram taking the wickets, I'm cock a hoop right now!
get some runs you bastard
you silly racist bok
that made me laugh so much. Is he still shagging that bird from liberty x?
I'd love to slip her a length.
Slipping someone a length is a standard term. You pervert.
up the arse?
I've never done that before
I only sleep with classy women and frigid men
before it gets out of hand (I'll tell you over a pint)
I look forward to it and I won't forget to bring it up
I like to brag about things like this.
But three an over against this attack is poor, isn't it? What's happening?
Bond is bowling well (as usual) and the ball is doing a 'bit' off the seam and through the air. And England batsmen are crap.
and neither did you. Learn to read John.
I'll let you off, whatever you did or didn't mean/read.
with a loudhailer and a massive flag saying HITITYOUCUNTS.
England all out for 73
gonna hit 43 off 44 balls before skying a mistimed hook right down the throat of mid wicket.
instead of KP. Prove me wrong Kev, you saafer twat.
didn't he get an E at A-Level maths?
I also had a punt at 12x4 in last night's quiz when everyone else shied away.
I was so shit at maths. When I told my dad I got a c at GCSE he was devastated.
for coffee then I finish at four then I'm going to Lidl to get beer. Then I am having a shower.
WHEN AM I MEANT TO WATCH THE JESUS-FUCKING CRICKET?
is there anything worse than watching England in a major sporting competition?
b Franklin. That'll do me nicely fantasy league wise.
or I'll bruise you
as if you could 'bruise' anyone.
do the haka all night!
Right back to the cricket. Surely it's not possible for Collingwood to save us again?
if I picked Collingwood. I hope I have
3.27 runs per over stat fans.
it's better than Bermuda.
of me giggling like a girl
though you have one minute to change your mind
thankyou very much
(watch him go within the next 5 balls)
well a six at least.
Ian bell, unless he takes 197 catches at mid off is going to be a regret of mine.
gone second ball, joyce style.
against the dutch though. so a bit worserer.
right one's gone. C'mon Smithy!!!
from 4 overs. That's 0.75/over.
and exclamation mark...
colly out. i'm havin a bad day
another catch for McCullum. Flintoff and KP, could be fireworks!
England players in my team or not.
back in the pavillion in a quarter of an hours time.
points all round.
at least i won;t have to spend too much money in the pub later for the nz innings
this is pretty piss poor. What little optimism there was this morning has swiftly evaporated.
FF cant seem to play at all anymore. looks beaten, no footwork aargh
I go out for half an hour and come back to this. So we go from 133/3 to 139/7? Dullards. Still at least we've got James Anderson opening the bowling...
bowl like a traction engine (that means very well)
but we all know he's going to send down a succesion of half trackers to speed NZ to victory.
be quintessentially english if we didn't totally balls it up
I've just kind of left it since I made it.
flintoff with pollock - good move huh?
They're currently 159 for 7, and really starting to piss me off.
We've reached 200. 'Nico' is carting it to 'all parts'.
At least we'll post a semi-respectable figure.
but I think going past 200 is a psychological boost. We just have to keep the pressure on.
and I think New Zealand are a better bowling side than they are at batting. We're definitely in with a fighting chance, at least. Let's hope Jimmy's on form.
Whoops. Now I know why everyone calls him Monty.
good day for me so far!
3 for 2! We could still fuck them up good and proper.
See, we were just *toying* with them. Leading them into a false sense of security, then BAM! We were never going to lose.
I'd say they're still favourites unless we can get the next 2 wickets in the next 10 overs.
I'm so frustrated with sport right now, with this and Newcastle last night.
I chose some shit players for my fantasy team...
Ross Taylor - Duck
Ian Bell - 5 runs
John Lewis - Did not play.
