    Bloody rain. Glorious afternoon out here in Sunny Suffolk, yet Guyana is pissing down with rain, it's just typical. Cricket just seems to attract rain, very frustrating. Was looking forward to seeing 2 England T20's, and it's looking like we're going to get 2 heavily reduced games.

Those overs before the rain break were absolutely huge in the context of what was to come.
    I thought only wickets lost prior to the rain break matter while arriving at a revised total under DL and not runs scored already by the chasing team.

    Brilliant. We've lost the toss and are batting first. We're so getting screwed by D/L again. Just need to go out and blast it, try and get as many as possible and make sure that even with D/L Ireland will have a massive chase on their hands.

    Interesting to see England playing an IPL team - 7 native players and 4 internationals.

    Would be cruel to see them go after putting up perhaps the best all round batting display of the tournament so far, in their last match. I hope they don't do.

    In a perky mood as always Scaly.

    Pretty dire innings from Kieswetter. Just couldn't find his timing and couldn't get going. Really going to need to start accelerating soon.

    Wonderful
    Surely good bowling did Colly. Fielding is top class except for dropped catch.

    Well you were wrong.

    West Indies scored those runs thinking they'd have 20 overs to bat, but they actually only had 6, so they're adjusted to take account of the heightened risk they would've taken had they known. That's why the target was smaller than most thought it'd be. Two overs of going of going at 13s or whatever when the RRR was about 9 means a ****load in a 6-over contest.

    How dire would it be if Morgan won England this game?

    It's ridiculous that England are allowed to steal players like Morgan from Ireland. How are they going to be a good team when all their promising players are poached by Eng?
