7/2 already, surely we can't do one on the Sri Lankans?
im sorry, this is just a false dawn. Move along, plz.
their middle order has a lot to do, and we've still got Broad to bowl.
and mendis hasn't bowled yet.
i admit they may be in abit of bother.
Samaraweera's a limpet though, and Mathews is darn good. SL have been funny under Sangakkara, a few games ago Murali had to slog to get them an average score but they still won. The way we're batting, 200 could be enough for them to win it, but here's hoping it comes good. It would be incredible if we keep this up.
Can't believe we didn't put Onions in the ODI team earlier, he might be expensive but he gets those 'wicket' things.
I hope we don't skittle them for 20 odd, I want to watch this when I get home.
typical that they have 100% blanket coverage of the shit series against australia, then don't bother with the comp that actually means slightly more than naff all.
with the 7 game warm up for the tournament. I still refuse to believe we are anything other than useless at ODIs.
I want to watch this NOW.
wright just sent down an over immediately after a wicket had fallen on a minefiled of a wicket and gave away 15 runs!!/11

If England insist on fucking this up could they at least allow Mathews to get a century or something? He's my trump player in my fantasy team at the moment...
Even gave Mathews 2 lives. I reckon we'll struggle to get 213.
That was a surprise.
Where was the middle order collapse? Cue media frenzy about how we've completely turned the side around and big ourselves up as usual.
