    Poor old Eoin Morgan will be kicking himself for switching. Boyd Rankin sitting somewhere scratching his head too.

    West Indies hammered Pakistan today ..... That tightens up the Section .... is that good or bad for us? .... I think we can have a good crack at Pakistan as well now based on this morning!

    My guess is good news. We've already beaten the Windies, so they can't hurt us. Pakistan can, but we have more points on board and a game in hand. By the time we play them, we could be out of sight.

    Bangladesh's "draw" in Brisbane may really hurt England in the long run.

    Bear in mind that if New Zealand win their group, they will play 4th in ours in the quarters. That will be a tall order in their backyard for whoever gets the last spot, which looks like it will go right to the wire.

    We need to get our run rate as high as possible as if we lose to Pakistan the likelihood is, is that ourselves, Pakistan and the West Indies will all be on 6 points and only 2 from 3 will get into the Q Finals. Lets beat the UAE first - beating Zimbabwe wont be easy by any stretch either.

    The West Indies Posted 372!!!! against Zimbabwe - Chris Gayle hit 215. I think the WI are making it into the QF now - so our NRR v Pakistan is going to be the key. Need a big performance tonight.

    like you i was confident a hour ago but we have allowed them get a lot of runs and have made it difficult for ourselves. Still winnable

    Our bowling in the last 15 overs is just not good enough .... and O'Brien messing in the 47 overs was a joke! Stirling is a big loss in the battling line so i'm very worry now! .... Its no good beating West Indies if we cannot win this game! ..... Our world cup hinges in the next 2 hours!

    Made the mistake of calling in to work from home - ie watch the match. Was up early and delighted with the play, now this! The end of the bowling innings was bad, the batting is somehow disconnected.

    The online poll went from 57-43 for Ireland to make the quarters, to now 46-54. Not without hope, but why do Ireland have to always do things the hard way?
