Saffers doing their best to make us feel better today, after looking rather good at the start of the tournament...

Tournament feels like it's a contest to come a distant second to India at the moment.

Not quite, 399-7 so England would need 400 to win

84-7, it gets worse.

Apparently we have scored enough to have avoided the worst ever World Cup defeat

Up there with 2015. At least then we had a poor squad, on paper, we have very good ODI players, but since 2019, they’ve played fuck all ODI’s, and shock, haven’t been able to perform.

Serious question, how much difference does a good captain make?

Lots, but not the whole difference between England's level in this tournament and the level they'd need to be at to compete. The decision to bowl first against SA was just plain old wrong.

I've said it before, but this just looks like a team that got old all at once. Nobody in this side looks anywhere near their peak.

India should win it. Fancy Sri Lanka might spring a few surprises.

Not like this!

That was bad.
Be good to see the back of a lot of these after this tournament, we’ve got some good players waiting in the wings (Brook, Duckett, Crawley etc) so I think this is a case of one last hurrah.

Stokes shouldn’t have come back, should have had his knee sorted ready for the India test series.
