    Phew! There it is. Thank God - I was worried about the rain and who was in front on the D/L .

    Actually very sorry I missed that partnership. Unbelievable stuff from those guys, but Paine must feel like a dill.

    Good tourney from England though, after the home ODI series they've come to SA and done pretty well. Fans should be happy they stepped it up a bit for a big tourney - gotta be a decent sign there IMO.

    I didn't see the game, but it seems like Watto and Ponting put on a show. Congrats Aus on reaching the final. Hope to face you there!

    England are such a strange one day side but they did what they have done quite a few times over the last few years found some good form out of a dismal situation. Still they only played on really good match and one pretty poor one in which they were totally outlcassed. The other two were pretty hard to judge because of the pitch.

    Australia in the final.

    It's odd how little you have to do to make the final of the Champions Trophy. Beat the tournament prank-team, scrape past Pakistan when they aren't particularly trying and get the mercurial side on a bad day- you're in the final!

    It might sound harsh on Australia, because they were really very good today. But they didn't even need to be.

    lol, went to bed with Aus on 1/100, did not expect this. Watson's such a champ, comes good when it matters in a brilliant all-round performance. Whatever Ponting did back in Aus obviously worked, he's been on fire since his mini-holiday.

    Conveniently leaving out how well we did against India before it got called off.

    It's not relevant. You played well against India, but you didn't have to. I'm not saying you don't deserve to be in the final, I'm saying you've hardly had to do anything to get there.

    You just said they deserve to be there, and this demolition of England proves it.
