    Yeah, SL are now in a fantastic position to advance. Batting first, they'll know that they only need a modest (250ish) score, and the Aussies will be forced to start slogging from ball 1 against Malinga, Herath et al.

    Thinking that Coreh's introduction into the ODI team might well spell the end of Frinks' career soon. We have no need for two middle-order left arm bits n' pieces players, and Corey has youth and potential on his side.

    Also just saw the no ball, and have no problems with it. It was behind the line...just.

    Glad I didn't watch that - could not have handled FOUR dropped catches in 24 overs. Three from NcCullum slightly ironic considering he is meant to be one of those bats-a-bit bowls-a-bit contributes-in-all-facets type players.

    Will laugh if we somehow make it through to the semis from here.

    Harsh on Anderson. I know Franko is the batting allrounder who can't bat, but Anderson is a genuine allrounder who hasn't shown himself to be a muppet yet.

    Is he really though? I agree he's got great potential as a batsman, but his bowling has kind of gone to seed over the past 3 years. I didn't see his bowling last night, but on the tour to SA, he looked very part-time (not much better than Munro tbh).

    Would definitely prefer either Neesham or Anderson in over Franklin (and Munro, but ideally I'd have Latham take his spot)

    He's such a natural sportsman that he'll always be able to heave the ball down at 125 without much work, though it's not going to be any use above domestic level. Focus on one discipline and view the other as a bonus.

    Anderson wasn't 125 in SA though, and was quite sharp in the HRV Cup, though he probably felt comfortable going full tilt in that since he only had to get through 4 overs.

    I think the important thing here is that we all agree Ronchi has been a revelation and should replace Watling in the test side

    Let's not confuse the formats here. Guptill's been a handy ODI player the entirety of his test career but he's still been ****ing terrible in the latter format. Ronchi's playing a totally different role to what he'd be playing in the test team, and actually has domestic runs behind him in the Plunket Shield.

    Re Champs Trophy tonight. #steep MT @mohanstatsman: For Aus to qualify have to win by 125-130 runs or 124-130 balls to spare, or else NZ in.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    So what do SL want to do if they win the toss - chase or set a total.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Set a total IMO. It'll mean Australia go really hard at whatever it is to try and knock it over in time to get their NRR up to the mark required; gives SL a much better chance of winning.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
