I see the Sheep strolled past the Lankans reasonably formidable 356 in a warm up game. The 42m (FFS!!) boundaries at Birmingham probably helped.

And the Bangers got close to the Indians total of 324. They made 84. [sigh]

It was Lardy showing his innate pinkiness. Not that there is anything wrong with that - in fact the opposite.

just read that the Poms series yamodi win over SA was their first ODI series win over SA, Oz or the Bannies since 2012. Both Bannies and Oz have won their last 4 series against the Poms. Shows the terrors of being Mudged?

'whiff de colostomy bag' by way of contrast?

No doubt about it Mr L. Our test record in England is poor. Then again the Poms have won one series in Oz in three decades.

And the last series here was a 5/0 shellacking. Hope the tourists this time focus less on their menu demands and more on being competitive.

Stupid thing about those 0-5's.... they were far from the worst sides we've ever sent

06/7 was a fair cop - still a great side wanted revenge badly and got it. No excuse for our last tour, we had some fine players and Australia was far from a top side.

Still, this is the Champions Trophy thread. Let's talk about Bangladesh instead. Zzzzzzz.

First game kicks off in about two hours. Should be a formality for England although the Bangers have surprised most sides at one time or another.

And SA haven't lost in England for 19 years. But that will come to an end this year.

I'm looking forward to Aus unleashing Koo, Purple, 2nd and OP (with seam back up from Tweety and maybe Stan Pond) on the Poms this coming summer.

Our batting is another story, but I reckon our team of FTBs may just do enough to put sufficient runs on the board to trouble England.

Find odd that a team that makes such a song and dance about primacy of test cricket has a W/L rank of 5 among the grand total of 9 teams playing the format. Since the 1990s.

BangBros going swimmingly but they'd need at least 320 to even mildly scare the newly anointed HULK of ODIs

At 2 ~ 200 and with 13 overs to go they're a big chance, notwithstanding the road they're on

Pretty typical of the Bangers. On track to get 320+ with 8 wickets in hand, then fall away with the quick loss of cheap wickets.

England will get these in <45 overs.

Sorry, valchers! Very Happy

Roy and Ball did a great double act to help the Banglas, and an unusual "encouraging" drop by Mo - but for once England haven't stuffed up ... on a mighty pitch for batting, it has to be said.

But the home team severely wounded, it seems. One of their stars (Root) has crocked his ankle, a surprising cornerstone of their attack (Woakes) my be out of the entire tournament after 2 overs.

Ah, the old reverse woof! Very Happy

Seriously though, it is ridiculous how both sides play better in away series against each other.

Bangas should have got 340, might have been a different story.

Not impressed with our bowling at all, distinct lack of world class performers which is gonna be a worry when Broad & Jimmy retire in tests too.

Well done to Hales and Root. Their net session got England home in a canter. Morgan hurried things along at the end.

So, I reckon Aus will struggle tonight v Sheep. I'll be out tonight so mercifully won't be tormented.
