I sat watching it live thinking I can"t believe we are going to lose to Holland at cricket! Then we got back into it and Broad bowled a great last over, but fielded like a village player!! I haven"t read the papers yet and studied what is required to go through, but the fact that we lost and didn"t tie means we "re out if we don"t beat Pakistan ( I think) !


Just re-watched the last over reminded me of when I played sixes tournaments as a kid ...

Shame for Broad who I really like as a player.

Did you see the hilarious Bopara "run out attempt" earlier?

Watching the rain at The Oval at the moment.

I love the fact they will play a 5 over game if the rain clears by 12.30pm!

Apparently if it had been a tie, there would have been a 1 over decider. Even more reason for Broad to hang on to it, having said that all 3 stumps to aim at 5 metres away !!

Yeah they play a "Super Over" - Ireland had a tie with Holland in the warm up.

It was absurd!

Ireland - I think scored 5-1
Holland 2-2

The last over is the craziest I have ever seen ...

Broad had three missed run outs and a dropped catch ...

OMG

New Zealand thrashing the ball everywhere ...

... until they manage a run out off a free hit.

They should still make it ... but total lunacy.

In the final analysis New Zealand too good.

Scotland semi-fold under pressure - and start bowling no balls.

New Zealand looking like the have a great batting line up - no sure about the bowling!

Next game versus South Africa.

Tempted to switch my betting on to SA.

West Indies on fire ...

Gayle at his imperious best.

Super 8s might have a very strange line up without the distinct possibility that England and Australia will be missing.

Brett Lee"s first three overs going for 51 runs.

Gayle hitting Lee for a 105m six onto the roof of the Oval - ridiculous.

Holland 6.6/1 to beat the miss-firing Pakistan ... got to value!
