Eng, a team that takes on the odds (WC19)

Recommended Posts

Started as the favorite but lost its steam. Then: 

 

  • Had not beaten Aus, Ind, and NZ in a long time in WCs - Done 
  • Needed to win 3 KOs games (including 2 virtual KOs vs. Ind and NZ) - Done 
  • Faced KO heavyweight Aus in SF. Were left to chase, which is usually a high-pressure situation esp. against Aus  - Done 

 

Odds in the final

  • Chasing against NZ, which tends to defends well in such conditions 
  • No team in the "Home" dressing room has won the WC final at Lord's 

 

Let's see if Bulldogs can do it one more time!

Two teams that I expected/wanted to do well are in the final. Eng is a little ahead for me because of the attractive way it plays ODI cricket

Last two world cup have been won by Home team so the trend will continue for the third time

This is Eng's 4th consecutive "KO/do or die game" .... No team has been under such pressure :fear1:

Ssssssssh but this Scotsman wouldn't mind if they did win because I admire the 4 year plan and sticking with players and style but don't you go about shouting that I said so :biggrin:

The Bulls finally made it home, but only after nearly choking. In the last 5 overs (excluding super over), they made 45/5. I'd expected them to win with a few balls to spare but after Butler they collapsed... fortunately, mighty Stokesman was still around. Feel bad for the Kiwis. they really gave their best and if not for brain farts from Guptill, they could have won.

England win, backed them over NZ

 

This is a good team, playing exciting cricket

 

India against them is like a bunch of dinosaurs 

Ind vs Eng is like a Wookie fighting an ewok and we know who is Chewbacca in this scenaro (Eng).
