    Don't get me wrong, I don't think Marshall is in great form either.
    Give the guy a break. He scored 85 4 innings ago. OK ,so he's had 2 ducks since then but hardly cause for major concern

    Yeah, hes due for a big one. Taylor will score 50+ tomorrow, mark my words.

    He is due, and hopefully will produce. And the 85 was against Kenya.

    Because they don't produce many. They have Robbie P in the squad, he's just not very good.

    Benefits for both sides I'd say.

    Batsmen from both sides are doomed , IMHO .

    It will be a low scoring Semi Final . (like the Ireland v Pakistan game, I suspect )

    It needs a few batsmen at the top to play the grafting long innings for the sake of their Team IMO, rather than the slap bang,wallop from Ball 1 .

    Pakistan got that 349 at Sabina Park but besides that, it hasn't been too high scoring there during the WC. Bond and Vaas will be clean up there, imo. Not sure about Malinga though.

    Provided there's not too much sideways, what better pitch is there to play an ODI on than a bouncy one? Especially early on when yo ucan use the pace of the ball when the field is up.
