Bangladesh and Netherlands I fancy from Group A. Zim and Afghanistan from Group B.

Slightly off topic but it's amazing how Kenya have just dropped off the face of the Earth over the last few years. Bangladesh being awarded Test status over them has really set them back.

Ireland threw that away. Best ball of the last over was a great yorker for the free hit. Apart from that it was generally poor.

Got what they deserved in the last over what with the keeper appealing for a catch that never was (but was given) and then letting the ball through his legs for the winning runs.

Ryan Campbell didn't look "sub-continent" last time I saw him.
Their keeper who made most of their runs looked a bit pale for a person from the "sub-continent.
Their number four batsman shot John Lennon.

Five of the first XI born in Hong Kong, if that matters.

All well and good you saying that but the picture I saw (which may not have featured those players) they were all Indian / Pakistani looking.

All well and good you saying that but the picture I saw (which may not have featured those players) they were all Indian / Pakistani looking.

I play league cricket out here. There are a couple of all Chinese teams in both men and women's leagues but the vast majority of players are from Pakistan, UK, Australia, NZ and SA. There is a big Pakistani community here and a lot of them are 2nd or even 3rd generation HK - a lot of these guys played in U19 World Cup for HK 5 years back or so. Ryan Campbell has been coaching and playing for Kowloon CC for years - last season knocked off 300 odd in a 35 over game..

There are 3 outdoor grass cricket grounds in HK. 3. That's for every league team male, female and junior to share. There's one indoor facility that could be described as a legit net. The team is making great strides and a lot of behind the scenes work to involve the Chinese in the game - but it's an imported sport with no local pedigree so until it's an Olympic sport and the PRC government decides there's a medal opportunity there you won't see a team from these parts full of truly Chinese players.

Finn was essential to our chances and is a big miss because the others are a little bit too hit and miss at this stage of their careers. Mind coming up against an in form Chris Gayle doesn't do anybody any favours.

i reckon we have the right two in there now. We have brought the rate under control (as silly as that seems). Morgan is usually pretty handy against the slower stuff, Root can stay in at a run a ball.

Still a lot of runs to get though.

Morgan was never the right man for this task. He is rubbish against the slower ball. Roots rubbish too.

What's happened to Morgan lately? In seriously bad form. Not ideal timing. It's could be a blessing in disguise now that Buttler has come in. Let's hope he sticks around for a while.

I think Root should open with Roy, could give a good balance with one going for it and another digging in for the long run
