....and so the WC Begins.  England loose the toss and forced to bat first on a green tinged wicket.  Just another reason to hate Surrey - creating a wicket that’ll advantage the SA bowlers. Good work. Twats

They could create a pitch to suit England. Home advantage but obviously this is Surrey we’re talking about

See

England lost the toss and had they won it SA would batting right now.

Opening the bowling with a leg spinner with Roy notoriously suspect against spin was a brave call but getting Barstow's wicket was a surprise and a real bonus for them.

Because Smith and Pollock are former SA players and have a deep insight into the SA set up.

Whoever England are playing there’ll be  commentators from that particular country.

Every single England run is due to a South African mistake, I call it the Don Goodman effect..

You have to give some credit to the batsmen. It’s good play to make the most of any poor deliveries on offer.

Aren’t the pitches in the WC prepared to the specifications of the ICC as opposed to the home nation? That’s what I thought anyway........

Cheers. I’m all for a bit of Surrey bashing but not their fault on this occasion then! We’re doing pretty well regardless. Could’ve done with a big score from one of the half centurions but hopefully Stokes will be that man and we can get to 330 odd.

Annoying for our batsmen who got in, then found a fielder when trying to excellerate, having said that still a decent total...

Unlucky for Rashid

Surely that shouldn't happen. Hit the stump fairly hard.

Ball just hit the stump at the wrong angle, does happen occasionally, the grooves for international stumps/bails are fairly deep.

Yeah. I was listening at lunch and switched off just after Buttler got out. Saw that headline a bit later and expected us to be 260 all out, as opposed to the 275-6 that we were at the time.

Shows how far England have come when 311-8 was seen as a bit disappointing.

That is the problem with the cost of the world cup tickets, you may not in the end even see half a days worth of cricket

Indeed.  And the weather isnt looking fantastic either as it stands. Oh well. Plenty of hostelries nearby if it goes pear shaped!

They can’t handle short pitched bowling.........now every team they play will adopt the same tactic.

Cant say I’m a fan of short pitched bowling tho......

Not a big follower of cricket Tom,so why would Surrey try to harm 

England's chances?

Yes: me and the Mrs (the 15 year old has a ticket but X-Box is more interesting than watching Warner and Smith sandpapering......sorry.......batting.)

I trust you`ll give Messrs. Smith and Warner the great Bristol welcome that so they rightly deserve.

Now the s*gs have their new big screen they can just stroll down to the mem and watch the game - provided they aren`t showing the Babestation summer special on it.

Afghanistan did pretty well really to get 207 after being 5-2, really enjoyed watching that (on telly, not at the ground unfortunately).  Australia should win, but you never know, Rashid Khan is a world class spinner, so could be interesting....

They did do well, I thought they`d struggle to get 150 when they were 77/5. Mind you, some of the Aussie bowling towards the end was pretty ordinary - complacent, thinking they`d won the game perhaps? Hope it comes back to bite them.
