Australia in with a real chance I reckon. I didn't mind Smith/Warner being booed except for when they booed his century. The reason you came to the cricket was to see world class players scoring runs and taking wickets and Smith delivered. He'll have a big tournament I reckon. To be honest I don't really care how Warner goes. After he made that 200+ in a day versus NZ a few years back I put money on him to score a 400. If he does that he'll be redeemed.

Afghanistan to get an upset win (hopefully not against us), England to play Australia in the final, Smith most runs Cummins most wickets, Zampa player of the tournament.

warner is fresh off being top scorer in the IPL, so hes in form too.

should be a cracker of a tournament.

England are red hot. Root, Roy, Stokes and Archer are on fire.

Stokes catch last nite was one of the best of all time.

Would love to see Afghanistan go well, they play hard!

Not sure whether it was an upset or if Bangladesh are now the better side.

bangers batting was quality. looked like their bowling went well too. saffers are certainly a shadow of their former selves.

South Africa's (my bottom team) repeated failures are a rich vein of schadenfreude for me of late. Hopefully NZ crush them tonight.

Sri Lanka upsetting England really spices things up a bit.

aussies comfortably accounted for the poms on the strength of another big opening stand from warner and finch. warner and finch number 1 and 2 leading run scorers in the world cup!
