    Yeah, well if you keep poking and prodding at things when they're sore they'll only get worse.

    Hope they bat in this order:

    Denly
    + Davies
    * Strauss
    Shah
    Collingwood
    Morgan

    I'm expecting England to play Davies at 6 (citing not wanting to change the batting order much), but will wait and see.

    Opening for Australia is more of a case of not being able to fit him anywhere else as opposed to him needing to open due to his own style.
    Bats down the order in Four Day stuff, but has opened the batting for a fair while for Tassie in the one day stuff.

    Predictions???
    For me Australia will win it
    If Pakistan will defeat Newzealand then i want Australia to be in the Final
    If Newzealand are going to beat Pakistan, then England should win this semi (that's what i want)
    Final Should be Australia Vs Pakistan
    or
    England Vs Newzealand

    Goodness, we're a terrible side tactics wise. Will be hilarious if we knock out the Aussies.

    Bopara only played because Prior was injured.
