Pietersen gone for his 50. dutch need 4 of the last. close but no cigar for scotland

Bopara now got his 50 too. pitch looks too easy to tell us anything about form

wonder if Sri Lanka have deliberately prepared no spinning pitches to stop England adapting

    Afghanistan-2/70 in 8.4 overs

    Frank's insight into this match would be noice.

    3 minutes later, it's 3/77. Lucky runout, the bum flicked the bails off before the ball. Simon Taufel didn't refer it to the third umpire.

    Don't think that will be enough Dinzy, not against an in form Namibia. Will be a tight match though.

    Pakistan are 9/206 now, good tournament so far for the Bangers.

    And Bresnan's just fallen for 14.

    van Schoor falls first ball, bowled by Zardran, van der Westhuizen in.

    I'm sorry I doubted your soothsaying Dinzy, 2/1 (Australian format). Snyman falls too, two form players gone.

    As it turns out, it was comfortably enough. They're in the Twenty20 world cup.

    England won by chasing down 6/360 in 60 overs. Pretty trivial match though. Swanner finished off with a 4,6 and a 4.

    Bangers looking good for a win, 0/58 in 14 overs chasing 237. Tamim will guide them home.

    Pakistan are Asian champions, won by two runs. A pointless tournament lit up by Bangladesh, massive credit to them, 3 runs from the outright win. Cruel, pretty much the whole team's in tears now. Fair play Bangers.

    Nice.  Shame about Bangladesh, so close and would have meant so much more to them than it will to pakistan

    See Haddin is out of west indies tour and if Wade plays well that may be it..

    Oireland beat Afghanistan by 5 wickets to win the tournament.
    Australia, WI and Ireland grouped together
    England, India and Afghanistan.

    Not sure which team I'd rather be at the moment.

    Philander becomes second faster bowler to 50 wickets. just 7 matches.
    at an average of 13.68

    ridiculous


    NZ need 12 to avoid the follow on and the man himself walks to the Crease.

    And he does. 2 not out and survives long enough for NZ to force South Africa to bat again.

    27 overs left today, can South Africa smash some runs to force a result?

    6 runs off the last 10 overs. at this rate fat sam has got time to set up a three course meal in the out field

    Aye, saw that a couple of days ago, truly stunning. Check his catches tally too.

    And a stat that was mentioned yesterday in the shouting box
    VD Philander (the best name in the sport) has become the fastest to 50 wickets by number of balls bowled, 1240 balls. Charlie Turner's second fastest by balls bowled. He took 1727 balls.

    May have changed now, but ominously, it's the same score as in the first innings.

    Jeebus...  England's batsmen need to take a long hard look at themselves.  On a good pitch, against some bowling that is nothing special, they allowed themselves to be bundled out for under 200.  Their shot selection was atrocious.  Their execution even worse.  Strauss, Trott, Pietersen, Patel and Prior, all got themselves out, the first two particularly when they looked fairly comfortable.  The top 4 contributed 41 runs - on a wicket that offered neither excessive turn to the spinners, or anything special to the quicks.  It is quite frankly, pathetic, and the bowlers really need to start holding their colleagues to account imho.  In contrast, their bowlers contributed 88 runs, putting things into a bit of perspective.  Broad and Swann smashed it around, Jimmy was driving, sweeping and reverse sweeping comfortably enough, and even Monty did all right.  There were no demons in the pitch, it is just a criminal lack of application, and as a fan, it is unbelievably disappointing to see.  No doubt we will get the usual load of bs in the close of play interviews, which I am getting sick of.  Stop talking, and start scoring some meaningful runs, or get someone in the team who understands the value of protecting their wicket and who therefore doesn't give it away.

    Rant over.

    On the positive side, they were looking for runs today. Maybe if they weren't brainless, they'd have got a decent total. England need to score runs though, bowling can't win it every time.
