    No this is silly. Generally people felt we had actually hit a par score on that ground. Your bowlers bowled better than our batsmen batted, for sure. But you can't say one team was better than the other in a game like cricket if you've only had one innings.

    I'm not trying to take away from what Ireland did - I'm really, really, not. You should be proud of being the only team to show any fight against the world champs

    But I can't buy into what you are saying at all

    Find it a bit ironic that English fans have been accusing Aussies of sour grapes wrt team make-up, and then going on to defend their loss against the Windies tooth and nail. The two games were - under the rules - won fair and square, and given that England finished the group stage with one loss and one NR, they were fairly lucky to actually move on. They obviously seized that opportunity with both hands, but they were hardly perfect throughout the whole tournament; no team was, clearly. Just accept it and move on, IMO.

    Not sure they're parrallel tbh. If you want to criticise eligibility rules and qualification periods thanby all means do so. The sour grapes is for criticising us for picking these players when they're available for us to select.
    The DL issue is that we were shafted by DL. If were criticising the WI and saying they were diabolical and what not then fair enough, call us for sour grapes.
    I don't see any issue in saying England batted exceptionally well against the WI only for rain and D/L to swing the game, disproportionately in favour of the WI.

    Find it fairly ironic that Aussies keep bringing up the West Indies game having been thrashed in the final by a better side.Just accept it and move on.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Pretty much everyone agreed at the time of the Windies game that it was a farce so it's just pointless that it keeps getting brought up now

    That's not even remotely true. Collingwood said the complete opposite after the game. If your point is that 120 wasn't as bad a score as it might have looked then you're right, but it was still well below par. Besides, the pitch looked perfectly fine when Irish players were batting on it .

    Everything else is speculation, but that's just a lie. Why don't you look through the thread at the time and see how many English fans were saying, "yeah, think we got about par there"?

    Okay, I take your point, it wasn't par, what I should have said is that people generally felt we had enough.

    Bear in mind Collingwood has done something unique - captained an England side to victory in a World Cup.
