    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    ah! another world championship and another final for us. Hopefully, it won't be another disappointment.

    We should ball a few into gayle's rib cage early on. hopefully that'll make it uncomfortable for him

    Is Mahela a midget? Sammy never struck me as outlandishly tall and he towers over his opposite number in this pic:

    You watching the girls Brumbers? England chasing 143, won't be easy. Could have been worse though after the start that Lanning and Healy gave Australia.

    Just heard the highlight of the tournament for my money. Snow's seminal 90s classic, Informer blasting out of the stereo-system. Doesn't get any better than that.

    It's probably the difference between 5' 8" and 6' 2" I'd have thought.

    Sammy is taller than you'd think; he just crouches over when he bowls so he doesn't make full use of it. More noticeable when he's batting IMO.

    Wasn't, but am now. Ta for the heads up.

    34/1 off 6 as I tune in. Required rate climbing then.

    Charlie Edwards gone, attempting one big hit too many. Big blow that.

    Been a while since I saw someone bowling in a cap btw.

    Hint of Bouf Lehmann in the action, IMHO. Quite round armed.

    Hate to be that guy and reduce it to a base level, but Ms Taylor's quite the fox.

    Heh, glad you said it first - she's like a big eyed pixie isn't she? Cute isn't the word. Charlie has 'girl next door' looks, shall we say.

    Ugh. That's an absolutely filthy cross bat slog from Greenway. Deserved what it got.

    Think we're gone here.

    Yeah I agree. Can't rely on the lower middle order to go at 8.7 an over - that sort of scoring rate is almost unheard of in women's cricket. And they haven't had much batting in any case.

    There's plenty of turn here, for the men playing on this pitch later.
