Great effort. Difficult listening at work, but managed to get most of it. Home in time for the finale! Cannot wait until Sunday 🏏
Come on England...

I'm stuck in a hard place,had £30 on NZ at the start.
Thought they were  over priced at 12/1.

Also had £20 on Simona Halep at @16/1,hugely over priced considering she was no1 a few months back.
My bets always seem to fall at last hurdle,I had a golfer last month 4 clear with 4 to play and blew it.😠

Terrific performances since the group stage wobbles. Today was special, onwards and upwards to the final. Sunday is a work day here in Dubai but I will be “working from home”.

Absolutely quality performance by England, wiped the floor with the sandpaper lot. So good to see the Final will be on TV. Good Decision.

Unbelievably bad umpiring decision on Roy. No wonder he was incensed. Unbelievable.

Off topic but I was suppose to pull in to Sydney with the US Navy back in 87 or 88.  Green Peace blocked us and protested so we left and went elsewhere  :012:

Splendid, I watched every minute of it, men against boys.
Nothing like shutting the cocky loud mouth arrogant Aussies by playing them off the park. We certainly hit them for six. Well done England.

Well I hope it’s a competitive match. I like both teams. Kane is a great player and comes across as a very humble and respectful person. Hope Guptill turns it around and plays a good innings.

What I also thought was great was how representative of modern Britiain the team was from Pakistani backgrounds, Irish captains, South African batsman heroes to West Indian quick bowlers amongst the rest of the Anglo-Saxon team. I am always proud to see people whose heritage is from elsewhere being part of our sporting heroes rather than defaulting to the “lands of my father”, although having such a diverse population means that every nation seems to have a “home crowd” here. Well done you all!

My favourite comment of the day was 'the only thing the England team did wrong was not to charge them for the lesson'
