time to take a star off your flag so you can wave it tomorrow!

New zealands haven't had a great batting tournament but their bowling average has been pretty incredible this tournament. Their attack has taken 77 wickets at an incredible average of 27!

I’m not sure who I want to win? 

I feel very at home in both countries.

Have either the Poms or Kiwis won a WC before? 

If they haven’t, it will be good to have a new winner of the comp.

Rhetorical question and I’m sure you’re being ironic with the last bit :-)

Serious point though, how many more W Cups will there be since T20 & Test (championship) set to be the main versions?

No, I don’t know.

Poms must be pleased to dismiss Williamson for 30. 

Kiwis 2-114 at 26 over mark.

England on top after dismissing Taylor. 

4-141 after 33 overs I’m not sure the Kiwis can set a defendable total.

Plunkett’s high action seems to be working well on this pitch. 

Nice Latham pull for 6!

With 4 wickets down, NZ are nearly at the 40 over mark and are only just over 4 runs an over. 

Methinks not enough to win.

I thought Jonny Bairstow was a decent keeper for England if my memory is correct? 

Jos Buttler did well to supplant him. 

Impressive 10 over spell from Plunkett to secure figures of 3-42.

Jofra Archer is bowling at 150km/h. This will give the Aussie batsmen a lot to deal with, especially if he can hit the right length and get swing/seam.

In the India series, none of the Aussie quicks were hitting 150km/h. I think Cummins and Hazlewood were usually at least ten klicks less. It’s a worry if none of the Aussie quicks are capable of bowling super quick.

Regulation keeper catch to dismiss the dangerous Roy from a Henry ourswinger. 

England 1-28 after 6 overs.

Tasmania has a faster bowler than Archer- Riley Meredith. 

Meredith clocked 154 kph in a BBL game and played a full season of Shield cricket.

Meredith was easily the  fastest  bowler in the Shield. 

The keepers, Paine and Wade, stood way further back to him than any other keeper keeping to any other bowler last season at Bellerive.

Boult is bowling well- fast and gaining swing - although not always the right line.
