Durban bit heavily into the top order; however
Nick Kight's run-out was ridiculous and seemed
to set the tone. And 6-26 speaks for itself.
It seems impossible to win a day-nighter
batting second. The ball was seeming all over
Now all we can hope is that India do a number
on Pakistan, as I don't fancy our chances
against the World Champs.

pakistan v india
pakistan v zimbabwe
zimbabwe v netherlands
and england v australia
If England beats Australia (ha ha) the poms should go through on run rate
if England losses and either pakistan or zimbabwe win both their upcoming games then that winning team goes through.
If both pakistan and zimbabwe both lose at least one of their upcoming games then it goes to run rate*
*I presume its run rate ithat decides who goes through but if it goes to who won out of the contest between the two teams then that zimbabwe decision could nip england in the butt.
Chances of England beating Australia - Slim at best the only thing in their favour is that Australia have already qualified and wont need to try that hard however it is england and no one wants to lose to them.

It would have been great for England to have
booked it's place in the last 6 with a win over
India; giving an up-your's to the ICC.
Unfortunatley we're instead reliant on miracles;
if we go home now it will delight Mugabe no

Ted... yes quite a scenario.
I hope the Aussies don't go smug on me, or the management start fiddling around with the team, just because they're already in the six!
Oz v Poms: I hope the poms win the toss, put up a good score 275-300, and give the Aussies a good total to chase. good for the game and the fans.
