    Very astute - I personally had no idea. I thought that he was going to grab a pair of chest-waders and cast a fly across the River Taff.

    Should have had Glasgow as a host city, I think we've had 1 wet day since the tournament started.

    Kohli against Sri Lanka/ Malinga does not seem fair anymore.

    Performs against most teams tbf. Against India he is poor though.

    Wonder what his record is like post-2007 WC

    Even in the Indian team I think it is mostly Kohli and Dhoni. Never really felt any of the other batsmen were totally on top of him.

    What was the logic behind Dhoni bowling himself? I don't quite understand given his quicks seemed to be bowling well (or at least the scorecard suggests that, I didn't see the game), and the spinners bowled out their 10 each.

    I think (and really, who knows) its a combination of:

    a) that at the time the spinners weren't getting purchase and assistance from the wicket (they eventually did, but alter), whereas the seamers were.. So he may have originally planned (prior to Rockstar Jadeja getting some serious turn and bounce) to make up some overs from the spinners with some seam up bowling, and he chose to bowl himself over Kohli; and
    b) taking the piss.
