    Final predictions - Eng v WI

    England to win by 80 runs or 6 wickets - this team are on one hell of a high.

    Eng bat first, 274-6, Flintoff 87, Jones 52*, Solanki 50, Gayle 3-47.
    WI 194ao, Bravo 64, Flintoff 4-27, Wharf 3-41.

    Or alternatively....

    WI bat first, 241-8, Powell 71*, R Hinds 51*, Harmison 5-33, Flintoff 3-44
    Eng 243-4, Flintoff 78*, Solanki 81, Vaughan 57, Gayle 2-40.

    Just letting my imagination wander a bit......

    Candidate for understatement of the year

    I think England will win easily if they bat second, if England bat first I think it'll be close for a while then England will polish them off quickly in the latter overs to secure victory. It does help WI slightly that they've already played at the ground in this tournament, dunno if they're gonna use the same wicket but both teams I'd expect to get 200+.

    They're nearly as tasty as motherboards, I believe.

    I seem to recall Solanki hitting 50 against SA in a Natwest final...

    Edit: Oh dear and he got his century against them too

    I'll rephrase to "letting my imagination voyage a long, long way away into uncharted territory not yet discovered by man" - that's more like it!

    Ah, what the hell, while I'm at it - Flintoff to score the first ever ODI double century, 214* off 110 balls, 21x4, 13x6, WI all out for 7, Gough 3-2, Harmison 7-1 with 4 byes, Eng win by about 300 runs........

    Ok that's just crazy, I'll stop now.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I hope the pitch for the final at Edgbaston will be a fair one and not one that gives a huge advantage to the Team that wins the toss. (Having said that both teams that won the toss in Semi's have lost).

    2 points.

    One, isn't the final at The Oval?
    Two, England won the toss against Australia.

    Easy mistake to make though. It's Vaughan after all.

    I remember in the Caribbean ODIs when they mentioned that the team batting 2nd had won all times and asked him if he won the toss, what would he do. He replied something to the effect of "The opposite of what Lara chooses to do I guess".
