Sehwag averaged nearly 50 in tests, I think.

RAM IT UP YOUR ARSE MATE

But I meant the semi-final, should have said 're-watch' really.

Yeah the definition of a flat track bully, about 4000 of his test runs were in about 3 innings versus Sri Lanka on a road. He was a high quality test batsman but should be nowhere near anyone's top 11 even of contemporaries. Some of his 'efforts' in challenging conditions were pathetic and barely even trying.

Been fantastic. Honestly the best day in English cricket since Broad went fuck ton on Australia.

Even Wood, Plunkett and Stokes who had the quietest games chipped in. But this was all about the guys up front doing a blindingly good job.

It'll be a fun final against NZ who have Lockie back, and a Guptill who still may have a final say with the bat.

Honestly, use the listen again function on the radio iPlayer. Why listen to that fucking cunt Michael Clarke when you can have the wonderfully measured tones of Jim Maxwell?

Aren't they going home now anyway.

The quirky tones of Bryan Waddle, Jeremy Coney and NZ's own John Virgo, Ian Smith to enjoy

Boult on that Lords slope will be a handful. Really tough game in prospect but I don't fancy their batsmen outside of You Just Got Kaned!

There is always the argument, which occasionally does stick but often makes England look like prats, that certain players of X Factor will rise to the challenge when hitting the test team.

I'm a great believer in that, to be honest. Duncan Fletcher's greatest skill was finding people who were a bit above above average county players, but had the intangibles for Test Cricket. Tresco and Vaughan being the two greatest examples for me, Aggers.

Aussies crucified. Humiliated. It’s the dream. Wallow it. Savour it. Slow down, drink it in. I want big time wallowing and savouring and drinking in today please. Really focussing on the depression, despair and embarrassment the Aussies must be feeling - absorbing it - revelling in it. Maybe even take a bath in it.

I don't even mind if we lose the final. Kiwis would deserve it too. I just wanted to see India get panned and they did, by us and by the good old Kiwis. Oz getting the full treatment was genuinely a bonus. An extraordinary bonus that I can barely even enjoy because I feel it was too easy. Fully grown men against cheating boys. Drubbed. Final gonna be whatever its gonna be but we showed the whole Earth how to play cricket (except Pakistan and Sri Lanka who already know). Koach choaked. Warner was blowing bubbles of snot in the dressing room. Smudger got taken to school about what ODI batting really is. Finch seems like a damn good bloke and Carey is probably the future of the Aussie middle order. Massive respect for how he played, and even more so with that injury which seemed horrific. Great competition after a few early washouts. Hope the terrestrial audience at least flicks it on.

lol I have experienced the feeling that occurs when you pan Australia so hard that it feels wrong ie. the 2010/11 Ashes (arguably the greatest and most comprehensive mullering of all by an England side) and you think 'oh well of course we won, they're SHIT'. but it isn't true and you should enjoy it.

Amen. I certainly gave it my best yesterday. Day off work, few tinnies, one metre from the screen, even managed to get a bit of a tan through the skylight! And yeah, that Ashes was similar, you want them to be at their best and to be fair, they probably weren't far off their usual standard yesterday, we just battered them.

Looks like we have a blueprint for the final. Put NZ into bat, make Guptill face Woakes and Archer early, see if we can sneak KW out., restrict them to sub 280.

Starc's threat was nullified so early as there was no run rate pressure for him to exploit. It's fun lobbing down yorkers and bouncers to tailenders who need to score 10 an over. Not so much when you are holding up a team singlehandedly and the other side are happy seeing out maidens against you if necessary.

2010/2011 in Australia was immense. I have such vivid memories of that series, lying in bed listening to TMS thinking we’d fucked it at Brisbane until Cookie decided to build a two-bed semi-detached at the wicket for the next 4 weeks

It's great when you remember this happened, also
