That is it brother. Theirs to lose in front of their fans, with Fleet Street ready to them to shreds if they fail. What was that...wake up lad... Boult is on his run up already...oh gosh!!! 1 wicket down already!!! :eek:
Wikipedia ;)
One thing you won't find in Wikipedia, but that I know for sure, is that back in 1992 we topped the table 😃 to play 4th placed Pakistan in the semis. The celebrations were ecstatic:D. Pakistan were shite. We were going to make the final just by turning up. Wrong:(:oops:.

In 2015 we smashed South Africa spectacularly to make the final. We were ecstatic but got done like a dinner in the final.:oops:

In 2019 England had to beat Australia to make the final. They were not just ecstatic, they were over the bloody moon, that is the players I mean, forget about the fans and Fleet Street. In the final against the Kiwis??? Heyzeuss is English remember.😄

How much pressure on the Kiwis? Zilch, none. Just turn up for work and play guys. How much pressure on the Poms? Massive, like one could not believe.:eek: The Poms have a song about football against Germany One world cup two world wars. How many cups have the Germans won though?

Yup we’ve got nothing to lose going in here, no ones really giving us a shot which is when kiwis tend to do best. Can’t help but feel we played our final against India though, plus making the final is pretty much considered success

A lot depends on the pitch. If it is fast and true England will win, more power in the batting, some genuine pace in the bowling and a decent leg spinner. If it is a bit of a sticky NZ are right in it.

Forecast is cool (19degC) and a bit cloudy

How many Kiwis will be bringing that seppo bullshit into the game and throwing the big high fives if we win this?!

For me, 9 times out of 10 you bat first. The tenth time, you think about it, then bat first.

I always get way more nervous as a fan when we are batting first. You can make a couple of mistakes early in the field and still be in the game. A couple of early mistakes here and it could be all over.

C'mon Guppy! Strangely, I have faith in him

A bit of swing first ball. Guppy to hit himself out of his form. I like that!

Guppy and Nicholls look ok so far. Good between the wickets. If they can both get 30+ that would be a great result on current form.

Very happy with this start in these conditions. I hope it does this at the start of their innings.
