    Fast tracking the Barbadian Archer did the trick then?

    Ha ha ha so did believing their own hype that after beating a couple of poor team's they were favourites.

    Piss poor record against quality teams in meaningful competition.

    Well well well.

    The England cricket team appearing to be making me eat my words.
    India, New Zealand and probably Aussies in a 3 game winning run.

    Well done gents👍

    You don't have to eat all your words Stagger as England have a South African, an Irishman, a Kiwi and a Barbadian helping the other 7 out!

    Amazing scenes today. Reminiscent of old times to have an Australian drive the first delivery for four. I notice Bairstow did the same - nice touch that.

    It's a shame Steve Smith is a convicted cheat. He's a very admirable player and held the Aussie innings together in the face of a relentless England onslaught.

    Having said all that, if I were a betting man, I'd put £100 on NZ to win the final. 5/2 currently.
    No longer "resting"

    Four born within the broad acres by my reckoning Stagger. Bairstow and Rashid from Bradford and Root from Sheffield. Plunket was born in Nunthorpe, a suburb of Middlesbrough, which historically was in Yorkshire before the artificial local Government boundary change of 1974,
