    Doubt I'll watch it all day but I'll give it a go.
    I've got my grass to cut. That might be more exciting.

    Can only see a NZ win we as a nation tend to choke in the big occasions

    Going very well currently. Plunkett especially has been marvelous.

    Good bowling effort by England. Would say we are just on top but need to wait until we bat to know if it’s as good as it looks. Would have taken 241 to chase once we lost the toss.

    That 241 looking much bigger after the first few overs. England really struggling and very lucky both openers are still there

    Very jittery aren't we.? Roy's a big loss. Let's hope the two Yorkshire boys can do something now.

    Loved that Roy walked straight off the pitch when they wanted him to hang around. He knew he was our so quite rightly didn't want to hang around. Three umpires between them had to 'check' on the decision.

    I think it’s more that NZ bowling is phenomenal so far if they can keep it up they will win Just to hope that things settle down before we lose too many wickets

    I find it strange that the umpires can decide to review their descision about whether the ball carried when it looked quite straightforwards but they can’t decide to review whether the batsman hit it like Roy’s dismissal in the semi

    Umpires don't back themselves often enough, which leads to a poorer standard of umpiring. If they think they can check whatever they want, they could feel like they don't have to concentrate as much. So many decisions have gone to third umpire all through the tournament to check on run outs, carries etc that are obvious.

    Went for the big shot the ball before and still thought the next one needed a big swing. Silly shot and he usually deals far better with pressure. He chewed up a lot of balls for his runs too.

    Time will tell but i don't think root going is a bad thing. Clearly not his day today with the bat and was getting bogged down. Morgan will add a bit more urgency into the innings
