    The group of losers then. Expecting Sri Lanka and England to finish on 2 wins and the others on 1 win. I think West Indies are over-rated and NZ are simply crap, rather than England and Sri Lanka being anything better than decent. Would be pretty depressing if any of the matches are rain affected mind.

    The group of losers are the ones who went out previous to the Super Eights, my ever pessimistic friend. Have a coke and a smile.

    Speaking of which, how did it eventuate that the four sides that topped their group ended up in the same Super Eights pool? Seems outrageous.

    There will rain-affected matches, it's inevitable this time of year in Sri Lanka. Someone will go out feeling aggrieved. Bowling first might be the order of the day

    Sri Lanka and WI to advance. New Zealand and Egland to scrabble around for third like two bald men fighting over a comb.

    Sigh. He can't bat, he's a liability in the field and he's a terrible 20/20 bowler. Naturally that makes him a must pick however.

    Yeah his batting is gone to the dogs - somedays I think Hira would be more useful out there. Or even Nethula.

    So, which sides will turn up today?

    New Zealand or LOL Lealand?

    Sri Lanka or LOL Lanka?

    EDIT: NZ won the toss and will bat. Guptill in. Well, that has gone right, at least.

    Hmmm, Williamson is padded up, wonder if he'll open.

    Edit: Nup, in for an early wicket then?

    Medium pace dibbly-dobblers from both ends. You'd think that's what we'd be good at playing.

    Ooof, jaffa from Matthews.

    That's going to be costly that drop, you would imagine. Surprised they only ran 2.

    Malinga's having a mare in the field.

    Haha, Lloyd doesn't always make me laugh (enough of the wallops), but "handful of fresh air" was a good line.
