Nah leave him to the end. I want to see that 50 off 120.

Would love to see Dhoni do what he did against England.

That was a brilliant match, absolutely in the balance until the 48th over.

And yet still won by the batting team in the end, not the better team.

In this tournament, the toss is toss.

Good start, but Smith and Carey obviously in and recovering solidly. 350 on the cards.

With Smith still in you can see Australia creeping over 200, hopefully not towards 230/240.

Get him out and we might be able to get them out for a sub-200 total if we are lucky.

‘Get him out’. Very good! Australia on for 270, England Starcked out for 150.

Yeah I may have put the mockers on now. I also think I've been wildly optimistic too.

We're into the tail now so they don't even need to target Smith, build up the dots on the tail and watch them swing for the fence.
