As usual I'm rooting for South Africa
What you think England might actually win? t:
I still think they are and should be the favorite
I give Bangladesh about a 20% chance to win. The pressure might be different for England in this match as it's the first with real and immediate consequences. The pressure should be less for Bangladesh as they aren't expected to win and weren't expected to progress from this group.
Wicket after 4 balls by Anderson for England.
It's funny you say that because where I work, a guy from Bangladesh dropped by and said he was nervous about tonight.
I think it would be a real treat for them if they could pull this one out. He said it would be one of the few times watching a match of any significance for him.
Yeah that's true actually. My parents are from Bangladesh so I don't really mind who wins.
Anderson gets his 2nd wicket in 7 balls. Tamim out which is a big blow, one of the best players.
Bangladesh seems to be holding their ground now a bit.
I thought the second wicket might start a domino effect.
151-4 now off 33 overs. These 2 need to stay in and accelerate later.
197-4 off 40 overs, almost 5 an over. Mushfiqur gets his 50 off 49 overs and Mahmadullah getting close to a hundred.
Final score 275-7. Couldn't sleep so I stayed up but now 7am and got to get up soon! England bowled well in the last 5 or so overs to stop the score getting out of hand. Now need to chase 275 down to stay in the tournament.
Frustrating. Match is just down the road, but I'm stuck at work with no tv.
England suck arse at the moment. In the long term, it would be better if they lost this rather than limping on in the competition- a complete root and branch reassessment is needed.
Man, I've missed about 5 days worth of matches. If Bangladesh win I think they're as good as into the QF's.
If Bangladesh gets through you watch the ICC make changes to ensure washed out games get played on a later date quicksmart...
Tight finish install.
A damn good knock by Buttler. Probably in vain for this tournament, but the bloke deserves to have his talent recognised anyway.
That was the match right there.
16 needed off 2, with 2 in hand.
Toss a coin.
Bowled him! Momentum back to Bangladesh.
Bangladesh win! England eliminated!
Huh. A relief to see them put out of their misery.
Oh well, had a feeling this would happen after England's 2nd defeat. Congrats Bangladesh! Will be supporting them for the rest of the tournament.
