T20 Sunday

It was fun watching Afghanistan win but I hope West Indies reach the Final as they have the only decent anthem. ‘Interesting’ to see Australia go out – they’ve never won it. Those who argue for the Franchise (etc) are always saying that the England players lack experience while the IPL and Aussie’s Big Bash prepare other countries’ players better. I guess that’s why England are through to the semis, Australia are out and India were very lucky against Bangladesh. What with that and England Rugby’s Grand Slam, perhaps we should play less T20?

Despite a certain ‘antipathy’, I have been watching bits of the World Cup and some of it has been very good, although generally more the batting than the bowling. People always compliment the fielding, which can be spectacular, but some of the thrown returns are not great.

I missed the Aussie innings but saw India and I imagine there has been nothing better than Kohli’s innings this afternoon – it was utterly masterful, especially in context. I’m very glad I wasn’t in the middle of that crowd  but it was something to see.
