Mascarenhas just hit sixes from the last FIVE balls of England's innings.
Shah and Wright did well too.
Caught and carried it over off the first 6, apparently?
Ace. I love Owais Shah as well.
to watch the highlights this evening.
I'm strangely optimistic about our one day side at the moment.
We seem to be able to bat further down than 5. Which is always nice.
is my hero, also David Lloyd got so excited that he forgot how to speak properly...fantastic.
but yes, excellent performance.
Shah played both magnificently and had great luck.
Mascarenhas's expoilts were incredible!
finally getting some 'fire' behind their batting efforts
So I saw this. It was ridiculous. With each succesive blow the ball seemed to go further and further into the stands.
The pitch looks a good one though (despite England stumbling to 80-4 or whatever it was) and the outfield is super fast. I reckon without Flintoff England could struggle to stop India getting 317. I remember the days when 300 was considered a MASSIVE score but these days it's not anything special.
Getting some form and momentum 4 years before the next world cup...
Seeing as we're being pedantic
flexi-time rules, almost as much as the ODI middle order. Go Masch.
Still, watch India pick these off...
Tendulkar is currently 'ripping it up'. 86 off 71 delivieries.
Perhaps I won't watch the highlights so much...
has finally gone. Go on Stuart, you LCCC leaving turn coat you.
we might still do this....
nevermind. what a fantastic series eh?
I can't remember when England last had a one day series that was tight enough (i.e the other side weren't caning them) to be actually bothered about, let alone hanging on it.
Except 12-2 Dagenham vs Barnet
Then Saturday afternoon drinking... Followed by the England game. With cricket inbetween. Why can't Saturday's game be a bluday day-nighter.
>>>>> basically the entire World Cup.
why hasn't anyone told mascarenhas that his earrings look ridiculous?!
I haven't been this excited about one-day cricket in a long time. England's team are aggressive, young, competitive and raw. They may have lost but they're a hell of a lot better than the ragbag that lost 5-0 to Sri Lanka.
Was as similarly rotten as ours going into this series. That is not to take away some of the acheivments of our youngsters though.
