    England's matches have been the most entertaining

    ..from a neutral point of view.


    from their first 3 matches:

    runs scored: 961
    runs conceeded: 959
    overs played: 297.4 out of a possible 300
    # of centuries: 4
    # of fifties: 8
    # of five wicket hauls: 1

    They are not one sided matches either, Eng vs Ned was the most one sided, which is saying something. There has been 1 win 1 tie and 1 loss so far, but it could easily have been any other combination of results.

    Yes, simply because all 3 games have been brilliant to watch for differing reasons. Only side we can say that about so far in the competition. Not all the games have been of the best quality but they have made up for it with excitement.

    I need more options. Poll does not cover all the possibilities IMO.

    I was looking forward to the joke choice

    Pretty hard to argue against this, though. Thoroughly enjoyable stuff when England is involved this time around.

    True, but mainly because they're so bad that even the minnows make close games and can beat them. There's no easy wins.

    I think we have a horrible (if one's English) or endearing (if one isn't) habit of playing up or down to the level of the oppo, which makes for tight contests.

    Great when we get over the line, but agony to watch for a fan.

    They still lost to a minnow side. This doesn't take away from that. And besides, anyone who is proud of Englands win in this game needs to think about it. Their batting failed miserably and their bowlings inconsistent.

    I guess when your sides really in the pits like this you'll take any win you can get though. Even on a minefield.

    Think it's a great time for England cricket myself 20/20 holders, Ashes winners, and coasting to the quarter-finals. If this is the pits, I'm happy in here myself
