I read the 40 year old Tahir opened the bowling and got a wicket 2nd ball...nice gamble from Faf, not a bad recovery from the Poms though
and will be hard to beat. Saffies not as good at limited overs as they are at test cricket..

Poms will lose this one me thinks...it's a good batting pitch, very good.

The trouble is in the UK attending 1st Class cricket of any sort can be a bit elitist!

That can mean zero atmosphere at many ODI games, with tennis clapping, strawberries and cream for lunch!  Cricket for Marvin the Paranoid Android!

I appreciate some fans despise the Vuvuzela type activity, I'm probably in the same boat, but a bit of colour and noise go a long way to making a enjoyable ODI spectacle!

Inversely, I loved going to watch county cricket, picnic atmosphere, close up to the action and players even discussions with the boundary line fielders. Usually there is a pub or two or three across the way that everyone attends after the game!

Archer has emerged from the Big Bash series and is a lively bowler, I wouldnt be surprised to see him in the test series, real good in the field too.
The team that beats England will probably win the WC IMO....

 Yep,  same old sh1t.  When are these bozos going to learn?   Warner has been to England how many times? Is he ever going to make runs there?

Jimmy and Stuart will be delirious at the thought of bowling to these blokes.

What a blinder of a catch to get rid of Smith.
