Yeah pretty decent performance by Bangers. What is it with Saffers and World Cups? They struggle...

Close enough. 348, and the Poms couldnt run it down, even with Root and Buttler posting better than a run a ball 100s.

I get the feeling this is going to be an interesting World Cup. My last favourite was 99, also held in England.

Windies sticking with the short ball routine and it's working so far. Love the different tactics that emerge each WC- this one is a blast from the past.

Terrible shots by Max and Usi. In trouble but this is what world cups are about - if you are good enough you recover from these situations and find a way. We did it in 2003 and 1999. PS we need Steve Waugh

Warner loose to (but that's him). Some poor discipline. Stoinis gets his chance now.

I reckon if we can scramble anything over 220 we'll be in with a chance. Windies hot and cold.

Some decent hitting n the last 9 overs and they might get close to 270. Bowl well early and it might be defendable

If he goes bang and Smith gets a few away they should get up to 280

this is the thing with West Indies very hot and cold I still think we have a pretty decent total though anything above 270 will be tough

It's stating the bleeding obvious but getting Gayle cheaply is the key.
