Yes, of course. England has more maiden economy because their wickets are sixes while Australia only has fours in their wickets which makes them stumped bowlers.

I kinda love it when D'rek unleashes her nerd wrath, as I knew she would here. Sorry innocent bystanders, but someone's gotta be the kindling.

Yes… that is exactly what I was thinking…




Don’t forget if a player does a roly poly which leads to a run out you get an extra over and three wickets in a row leads to 10 points…

Super happy England managed to knock Australia out, but I am backing the Kiwis in the final.

Well that was fucking embarrassing. Talk about save the worst for last. :p

Nice to see the crowd were such good sports about it too ( /sarcasm). What a pack of boorish turds.

In the same spirit, I not only hope NZ win the final - I hope they utterly destroy England even worse than was done to us.
I want Pommy cricket fans crying into their piss-warm excuse for beer for generations just thinking about it.

Probably won't happen but it warms my heart to imagine it.

EDIT: Oh, and suck shit Jason Roy. Yup, you had every right to be annoyed but you carried on like you were playing for the England soccer team, not the cricket team.
The fine should have been 100% of your match fee, you fucking precious twat.

Something tells me that you enjoyed that game of cricket...

It was nice to inflict some pain to the Aussies after all the pain they have inflicted us over the years... and what a way to do it!

Quite fitting that we play NZ in the final, it's thanks to them that we play the way that we do now.

I think you'll find it's more to do with Trevor Bayliss ... an Australian.

That Umpire from yesterday who made some questionable decisions has been given the final.
Apt is the only one who reads this. Apt is nice.

Didn't England beat NZ by like 115 or so runs in their regular match? I'm disappointed that NZ beat India, I think an India/England final would have been much more fun to watch!

It's certainly the final the ICC and sponsors wanted but ah well, not to be.

Kane Williamson is a tactical genius, so hopefully the Kiwis can blunt the Poms' batting advantage.

Go NZ!

MY. HEART...

Boy was that a stressful watch... what a game and what an advertisement for the game...

So many times I thought it as done and dusted, we had no chance to claw it back but we did...

It was a cruel way for NZ to lose too after that spectacle butI guess that is the rules...

Definitely one of those life moments where you'll always remember it.

Turns out the umpires may have flubbed the rules ...

But how many times have we seen that in all sports? Le sigh. :p

My buddy and I were really confused at that call, so I'm glad that it's the call that is being called into question! It didn't make any sense to us that he got 6 points. I now see what THEY were thinking, but it still felt weird that they got 6 points out of that.
