Finn is a world class pacer......a wicket taking bowler of highest quality.

Bresnan is a trundler.........a world class trundler....but a trundler neverthless

Agreed.  Why bother with 24 now, just say 20 and leave some spare time.

England have experience of 24 over cricket in this tournament, when they beat New Zealand in the groups. 169 was enough for England to win that game.

Sounds like KP is having some fun up at Leeds, 101* off 110 balls thus far. 12 fours and 2 sixes. Are you watching Australia?

Ah, it's raining now. Sad

Let's call it off, and have a shared trophy. The forecast is lovely for tomorrow as well.

Covers on.  

Given the stupid delays to start the game it's safe to say its over and the trophy is shared I'd guess.

No reserve days is a bit silly but hindsight is 20/20 I guess. 2/15 matches unable to finish isnt bad.

Not really sure why they couldn't push back the T20 games a day, so they could have a reserve day. But hey ho

Now if the bloody umpire can get a toddle on then maybe we can get a game?  Any disruption after start and it is done though.  But they say its clearing in the distance!

I think Bell/Trott showed in that NZ game they will either hit out or get out. Trott's a better T20 player than people give him credit for

Not too sure trebs. India do have the batting strength, but by bowling first England can limit that to a great extent. The likes of Ravindra Jadeja with the ball are more effective when he has overs to play with. Again, the start's going to be very important. If Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan get off to a decent start, the likes of Kohli, Dhoni and Raina can then cash in. But if there are early wickets, England could control the tempo of the innings, and knowing their target, they can put in the right strategies.
