Commentary team were saying if Australia win inside 12 overs, England are gone.
Blimey, some of you get excited! Maybe, just maybe Australia played really well!!!
And this is a new concept for many of these players, learning new techniques about building an innings. Who knows how the ozzies will play? Maybe Broad will take a few quick wickets and bowl them out for under a hundred? Or something...
The thing is, wickets and run rates really add up in 20 20. Loose a quick wicket and the chase falters. Falters too much and then the pressure mounts, loose more wickets and then it starts to crumble! So many matches die out at the end, because they just don't have the wickets to build up to a crescendo at the end.
Sri Lanka was able to go to the end today, cos they had wickets at the end. And they never just slogged. The best 20 20 players in the English domestic league don't try to slog all the time. I remember an innings from Mark Ramprakash, he actually played himself in sensibly and still managed to finish with a fantastic strike rate! That's what the Sri Lankans did.
But a couple of early wickets and the pressure is on any opposition. But give the opposition a little credit......
cricinfo reckon it's 9.3 overs too, if Aus are going to knock England out. That'll take some doing, especially as they can't afford to lose lots of early wickets, lose the game, and go out themselves.
Is anyone else just sick of the sound of Agnew's voice at the moment? He's so depressive, it is really annoying me. I reckon he is getting jaded and burnt out.
Somebody has to...
Love Slats btw.

Just confirmed, 9.3 overs.
Not entirely true that it's 9.3 overs, btw. Australia can score more than 136 runs.

Screw eliminating England. Can we please just win?
Isn't opening the bowling with a 12 year old somewhat illegal?

Do runs over the winning score has been passed count, even if it's done with a boundry?
You have to fear for Kirtley against these guys.
OK, hold that thought until he actually get a bowl.
