    Luckily India are in the other group so he always knows who to support.

    This group will be much more competetive than the other, which has two favourites and two ordinary teams. Don't really know what to make of NZ/Bangladesh.

    Already tasting something awful, can't we have got a proper team to play first up? We deserve better than being in a tourney with three lightweights.

    This video reminds me of that experience.

    That taste you're experiencing is the taste of the most over hyped bowling attack ever getting spanked all around Birmingham by Hales, Root, Buttler and their mates.

    What are the pitches going to be like? I see the Aussies have picked lots of quicks + Zampa. It doesn't matter who England picks because their bowlers are all pretty useless anyway and Bangladesh will probably have lots of spinners despite improving on the pace front, while NZ will definitely pick Santner, probably pick Patel, and might even pick Sodhi.

    Not sure our bowlers will be that useless if we have a wet Summer. Our spinners yes, but Adil does bowl okay in one-day stuff.

    Still, quite looking forward to this, reckon we'll pish it until the final, then find a way to **** it up, that's our MO at home (sometimes away too) when we're quite decent in Limited Overs comps.

    According to Bet365 England are favourites for the tourny at 4.00.

    Saffas should be favourites, even if they carry the chokers tag.

    Aussies and India next favourites.

    Then NZ and England.

    Finally the other 3.

    I'll make a 6 month avatar bet with right now that that doesn't happen!!

    I think there may be an element of England fans (well probably only me actually) over rating this side, but there is definately a lot of underrating of them by everyone else. This is a very good ODI side in their own conditions, if the bowling attack is their weakness that is negated to a degree by playing at home.

    We should have won the last CT in England in 2013 and this is a much better side now.

    We wont necessarily win the thing, but I don't honestly see any team that should deservedly be tagged favourites ahead of us. We're as good a shout as anyone for this imo.
