I wouldn't bank on that, it's well short of par and our bowling is not world class. 70:30 Afghan for me.

England get out of jail thanks to Moeen.

Looks like the game against the Sri Lankans will decide who goes through to the semis.

After the Kiwis result yesterday in the other group, one of the two favourites (India, Australia) will not make the semis. The winner of that match will probably go through.

Yep, thanks to Moeen and a fairly dodgy umpiring call on his lbw. And Willey.

If India go out of a home WC in the group stages there will be some serious recriminations.

Is anyone suggesting a financial arrangement might have been involved?

You can unfortunately never discount it. I believe something smells with Pakistan's record against India in ICC tournaments...Played 12, Lost 12. It's not like Pakistan players have never been caught accepting payments from bookies and their associates...

If you were paid to lose to India that would be a dumb way of doing it. And on the India v Pakistan, there might be a history of corruption there but deliberately losing to India would be effectively treason in Pakistan.

I agree with you, but also the bigger the game...the bigger the payout, and despite all the ICC bluster about catching players that take bungs, it says something that a national newspaper sting has caught more people than the ICC has even done.

I still say the 1999 WC game between Pakistan and Bangladesh was/is bent. After that Bangladesh win, the Asian countries persuaded the ICC to accept Bangladesh as a Test playing nation.

Anyway, back to the cricket, the Saffers will have to have one hell of a bowling stint to stay in the competition.

Saffers got beat by the Windies, so tomorrow it's simple for England. Beat Sri Lanka, and they go through to the semis...lose, and they are going home.
