Cricket Thread - England win T20 World Cup

Pretty poor from Sri Lanka over the last few overs. They've let us off the hook.


It's still not simple for England, as Sri Lanka have lots of good spinners and of course Rashid was the pick of the England bowlers. Those spinners aren't going to be easy to get away.

The third umpire has had a blinder there. The spike must have been the bat hitting the ground as when he went back to the front-on view there was a gap between bat and ball, and the bat definitely hit the ground. I could really see a more trigger-happy third umpire giving that out as soon as a wiggle in the line appeared.

Haha, never in doubt, obviously. Dame Edna, Alf Stewart, Skippy, Mrs Mangel... Can you hear me Mrs Mangel, your boys took one hell of a beating! And so on. 


Good job Stokes went sensible and just got it done the simple way in the end.

Some unintentionally entertaining stuff in the post-match. First Alex Hales being interviewed as Eion Morgan stands next to him not saying a word, just fixing him with an unblinking death-stare. Then Athers ending his interview with the captain of Sri Lanka who have just been knocked out with the words, "safe journey home." 😬
