    Knowing Bet365's stingyness, probably not. Lucky KP's a gun.

    Once I had a bet on a tennis match with Max Mirnyi to win. He won the first set 6-0, and then the opposition retired. Only got my money back.

    People can go about how the Champions Trophy is a waste of time and whatever, but it wins me money and that's what counts!

    I'll go on Bet365 and see how much. I placed these bets before the tournament so its been a while.

    England chasing is also better than England defending IMO. The bowling just isn't good enough to consistently defend totals. The batting also isn't good enough to set targets, but can come through if they know what they're looking at.

    But your first comment makes it sound like Taylor batted well enough that his team deserved victory.

    OK, fair enough. But still, it's not really spinners England want to select with Dalrymple and Giles around the side.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    yeah, the stats bear that out aswell. Think we went a period of about 12 months from the WC when we won every game batting second and lost every game batting first

    Oh right. Miscommunication then, I meant that Pietersen deserved to come out on the winning side, not Taylor (or Bravo).

    Gayle got man of the match. Don't think he deserved it. He did great all round but KP was the man for the MoM award.

    Gayle deserved to win a Man of the Match award IMO, if not for Pietersen's matchwinning knock. That said, England was cruising until Gayle stepped in the with ball.

    Pietersen would have been my MoM, but no qualms about Gayle getting it.
