Will the last game be in this century?

This reminds me of the run-up to the World Series when my local team has a shot. Hanging on every pitch. Analyzing every hit. Second guessing whether he should slide or stay.

Slow motion panic attack.

ah yes, but in the first match of the current round, the two teams playing were in the last 16, playing to get into the last eight.

Good evening weekenders, from a very cold (by our standards) South Africa. -2 Celcius last night and looks like were in for more of the same tonight.

The upcoming match is sure to warm things up though. Holding thumbs for all you England supporters out there!

Andy, now that revelation has me feeling a bit sad🙂. Lest the rest of you turn your radios on, India are chasing 159 with 19 overs to spare and England have just taken their 1st wicket.

I know nothing about cricket, but it seems to me that England is getting its butt kicked!

Half time 0-0

My heart is with England but I see Colombians can be extremely dangerous.
They play quite dirty and also run fast like rabbits..
If Harry Kane can play football like in the first half again, England will be very hard to beat.
God Saves the Queen!

Now I understand why the referee is kitted with a can of pepper spray. I wouldnt be surprised if he gets to use it at some stage.
