    Default Cricket World Cup....

    ... not a cricket fan, but it's England so I'm staying in touch. Doing OK at the moment which is bound to put the kiss of death on them...
    Been watching the highlights throughout and the supporters have been wonderful, in particular the Indian, Pakistani and Afghanistanis. Brilliant stuff.

    May have been a mistake to only show the games on pay tv, I'm sure more people would have watched it on free channels.
    Thankfully the final is on channel 4 and England are now favourites to win

    Yes,great result today and played beautifully by England. One of those days when everything went right - including losing the toss.

    Looking forward to Sunday a great deal.

    Unfortunately that’s not the basis they award the TV rights on... exactly the same argument could have been made after the 2005 Ashes... but the highest bidder was Sky.

    Not sure about the rest of the world, but I would guess it’s only really an issue in the U.K., you can guarantee pretty much everyone in India watched it. Were were in India 2 world cups ago... the crowds on the streets watching TV’s set up under a make shift awning on the pavement was amazing... Tendulkar was and remains god

    This is how one Aussie news website reported the flogging Australia just had. Australia thrashed by England in World Cup shocker

    Yes, I still follow Australian Cricket.

    Getting Finch and Warner out for next to nothing really set the day up.
    It does look like Roy is the lynchpin of the England team. If he fires on Sunday, and they can put Williamson back in the hutch for a small score, it could be England’s day.

    Now that was one heck of a game fair play.
