    There have been about twice as many belters with us in as there have in all the other games. We're awesome.

    Cricinfo's "Win likelihood" graph for today is worth a look:



    All of England's are like that. The England vs. Bangladesh one was equally ridiculous.





    Compare those monsters of excitement to this one from Australia vs New Zealand.



    Yawn.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Here ya go.



    Okay, not quite so up n' down, just an epic turnaround - SA reached a peak of 97% chance of winning.

    But the turnaround of the cup is of course the Ireland match:



    Where England spent almost the entire match with a 98 or 99% chance of winning...

    And since you asked nicely, here's England-India, where India had peaks of 93% and 96%, but England reached 89% between the two.

    England deserve to win it simply for giving us so much entertainment.

    Times zones and the amount of pommie scum on here might have something to do with that.

    Those graphs look a little suspect to me. Why do the dips in win likelihood occur before the wicket dots?

    Because it works by searching for and averaging bookies' odds, and takes relatively few specific data points (look closely and they are all polygons, i.e made up of straight lines). The wickets are added on afterwards by a different script, purely as reference points, and don't always match up perfectly.
