    A really poor post, Precam. You're capable of writing sensibly, why not do so? And when it comes to trolling, bear in mind that you've been banned and (AFAIK) scaly hasn't.

    You are the one trolling after England have just been cheated out of the semi final and it's pretty much the consensus not just my opinion.

    Colly's fault for choosing to bat.

    I really hope they sort the DL out in future though. The better team lost today.

    Sticks in the craw a little bit seeing Gayle choked with the magnitude of his team's achievement despite being so thoroughly atrocious with the bat, except for competent little cameos from Ronnie and Chanders at the end.

    Very true. More the fault of some braindead selections than the players themselves, but given we invented twittytwatty, we really didn't have a clue how to put a side together. When you've got one opener patently out of his depth and nothing of note batting wise after number 4, we were never serious contenders.

    It's been said before, but what a shame Pak couldn't have been competent last Sunday and spared us this nonsense.

    Oh well, pleased with how we've played since the Netherlands. And I don't buy all the stuff about our batting being rubbish, not the best but we've put down decent scores.

    Bring on the Aussies.
    Yeah, only once have we actually posted a total that I would consider to be poor, even though it's seemed crappy we've managed to jumble the runs together generally. We'd have had enough runs had it been a 20-over game, but hey, not the Windies' fault it rained or that the DL is flawed for the format, so be it.

    Hope the Saffies win tomorrow, can't be doing with finishing bottom of the group.

    What a ****ing ridiculous post. You don't have to be an one-eyed England supporter to think that the D/L target was unfair. Your suggestion that England should have pulled out of the tournament because D/L is less than perfect is idiotic.

    A sane post. Fully agree.

    England were marginally hard done by D/L but the idea that they "outplayed" the Windies is ludicrous. If the Windies had 20 overs they would have batted differently and it's unlikely they would have been 45 for 5. And over the course of the tournament they were the better team; quite competitive in their defeats and without an embarassment like the Netherlands game. England wasn't really semi-final material.

    Definitely, I've said throughout that England should bowl first. But that would just have meant West Indies got cheated out of a contest instead.

    I vaguely remember a stat that the team batting 2nd wins 60% of games. Dunno if someone cricket-stats-site-savvy can confirm.

    Oh ffs TMS going on about England being big favourites during the chase. England were NEVER even favourite let alone heavy favourite.

    Well, why don't you kindly suggest the alternative then? Why don't you pinpoint why 80 off 9 overs is unfair ? What should have been then the ideal score?

    Genuine questions.

    Only positives from this is hopefully the likes of Collingwood and Wright will never be selected again.

    Good point this. Would sit equally badly with me personally whoever it was that got ****ed over by D/L.

    All I can say is i hope they sort it out in future.
