    Really really interesting championship so far, the finals could still be almost anyone. Only WI are definitely out.
    The way I see it NRR won't mean diddly-swat for NZ if they do beat England in the next

    game. If they do they'll make the semi regardless of whether SA or Eng win tonight. If SA

    win tonight & NZ beat England only SA & NZ will be on 4 points, whereas if Eng beat SA

    & NZ beat England, only NZ & Eng will be on 4 points, remembering SL are stuck on 2

    points.

    Redmond is flying in from the Otago training squad in Oz to take the place of big Jess.

    Dunno how I feel about that, I suppose it means that Guptill is seen as the long term no. 3 and they don't want him to open.

    Would rather play Brendon Diamanti TBH or another bowler if Elliot can't bowl aka N McCullum.

    Can anyone explain to me whether England are now definitely through? And if not, what (in simple terms) are the permutations from an England perspective?

    Diamanti is poos though and we can't just fly in another bowler without another injury.
    It is possible to play Butler though, I imagine he's recovered from his tummy bug, but 5 frontline seamers is overkill.

    Elliott? Redmond can bowl leggies too, he could be useful in the middle overs bowling in tandem with Vettori.
    Someone mentioned Elliott had a bung knee for awhile, but hopefully that's fine for the next game.

    EDIT:

    Apparently Ryder had to appear before some 'conduct court' and has been fined for this. He should be rewarded

    Well I hope we finish top of the group (would imagine it's pretty likely) as that would mean a Saturday semi-final. Get on the beers with the lads, watch England romp to the final. Sweet as.

    So does this mean SA is out? And did NZ beat SL?

    England showing that playing cricket in the lead up to a tourney, even if it's completely ****house cricket, is better than not playing at all.
