I’m just hoping the chase last long enough for me to watch the finish at the cricket club this evening while my son has training

I'm guessing it didn't. Think the England batsmen had practised against the short ball. Interesting hearing Curtly criticise the WI bowlers for going short and very full when is exactly what had worked for England attack. I guess Windies didn't have a plan B. Wonder if we did

WI bowlers were too short or too full so never posed a threat. A bit like how England bowled against Pakistan.

With such a low total to defend they had to search for wickets all the time as they couldn’t afford to just try to contain the batsmen. It was a easy total to chase, we could have done it just picking up 1s & 2s all the way through if WI had gone for the containment strategy.

Not a bad innings for England. Kept Sri Lanka pretty contained

Just 233 to win and put us back on top of the table (temporarily)

Proving to be quite a tricky wicket today. We should have enough depth to make it but I’m not going to hold my breath

It's only a guess but I think England are knocked out of the competition.
I did a search, found the website, with all the stats and data and match report... and still didn't understand.

I found this bit but it still doesn't make it black and white:
If England scrape though after beating New Zealand, possibly via NRR, they will be so delighted/relieved that they will probably relax, get their mojo back and go and win the whole goddam thing.

fcuking shambles again.

Why did we choose to chase? We have struggled every time this World Cup chasing.

Get rid of Vince and one of Moeen or Rashid as they do not contribute enough.
Fingers crossed Roy is fit enough to play the next 2 games and we get either Plunkett or Curran in.

Team with the better bowlers won. England’s strategy of battering opponents into submission with their batsmen only works if the batsmen are allowed to play their shots and the Aussie bowlers are far too canny to allow them to do so. Starc highlights the gulf between real quality bowling and the rubbish that the 50 over game currently produces.

Is there a scenario where England lose to NZ but still get through?

I think there might be, but I have a feeling that it involves Bangladesh beating both India and Pakistan.

Not impossible. Someone nerd-up the numbers please. Dirk, I'm looking at you.

We would need India to beat Bangladesh and Bangladesh to beat Pakistan (or for Bang v Pak to be rained off) for us to go through if we lose to NZ

After briefly threatening to be an interesting and exciting tournament it has reverted to dull tedium with a mind numbingly tedious game today. NZ will be cannon fodder for whoever wins the groups so India v Australia final looks likely.

Am I right in thinking NZ only snuck through because rained off against India ?
Poss a bit harsh but not a deserved place in semi's ?

Possibly. Possibly England are lucky not to have had any rained off or they might be under threat. Possibly if the Pakistan -Sri Lanka match had not been rained off one of those would be in the running for a semi-final place

Could have, would have, should have

Enjoy it while it lasts

Dr C, I still think you are too negative. Yes the end of yesterday's match was dire, but the start was sublime. And before you once again bemoan the fact that was due to the batsmen having too much of an advantage, I have enjoyed watching many of the bowlers too. Naturally as an England supporter I have been delighted with Archer throughout, but there has been some great bowling from others too.

And with the knock-out stages to come I think it will get closer and more exciting
