    Woke up this morning to the inevitable, we losses, scored runs but not enough, need better bowling attack, a fast bowler and spinner to replace C/Nile and Zampa, batting line up 1-7 ok but Stoinis needs to score.

    India just had a blinder.
    The format this time is a lot fairer.
    In the past the team that was lucky enough to not come up against a team having a hot day would win the cup, but this time you can have a loss and it isn't the end of the world.
    We'll beat them next time.

    Any time you can score 300+ chasing is a good sign

    A 36 run loss to India is not the end of the world

    Need more from Zampa, Stoinis and NCN with the ball as well as improvement from Khawaja and Stoinis with the bat

    Things not going well for Sth Africa, 3 losses and a abandoned game, would need to win rest to qualify me thinks.

    Cruising at moment but let’s see how we handle the bowling bit, one short in my opinion

    Very ordinary effort from our middle order. We should have made 370+ given the platform that was laid early.

    Very disappointed, don’t understand changing the batting order, didn’t work, worried we are a bowler short, someone has to take wickets bit like Amir did, he bowled brilliantly

    Pakistan’s batting has self destructed, but I can’t see Australia winning this World Cup. The Australian’s performance in the last 2 games has been very disappointing.

    I see we are not even halfway through the rounds and only 2 teams are undefeated, New Zealand and India, and they play each other today, so only 1 side will be undefeated by tomorrow.
    I can't see any team winning 11 in a row, so we are looking good to finish top 4, and even a good chance to finish the rounds on top I think.

    Looks like India v New Zealand game will be rained out, so 1 point each I suppose.

    Every washed out game not featuring Aussies is a bonus

    Steve Smith looks like he has so much time when batting. He is making this fast bowler look like he is bowling in slow motion.

    Whoever this Asian commentator is, he hates Warner.
    I thought Warner was playing exactly as you want an opener to play - scoring at a reasonable pace and very safely.
    Getting out is the only thing he did wrong.

    334 is a good score, but we should have got 350 at least the way we were going early.
    Feels like Sri Lanka are still in with a chance.

    This is a critical game as to where we finish, Sri Lanka are mid field, if they loose then semi final become very difficult and Aussies run home is easier due to less pressure. 330+ not as good as hoped but should be plenty, Finch and Smith very good, Maxwell his usual self.

    Bangladesh chased down 300+ with plenty overs to spare, nice for the underdog to win but were West Ind serious.

    100 runs without loss.
    I'd love to see the boys get really stuck into the Bangas now.
    We need to stamp a bit of authority on this tournament.

    I totally agree. We have the team to do it.
