5-82.

Hard to see anything competitive coming out of this.
At 6/242, Smith and Coulter-Nile both over 50 and having put on a century partnership (Well, 98 as I type this), they have given themselves something to bowl at. Tremendous grit and mental toughness being shown, which is what we expect from our team, but it's still nice to see it in action.

And the hundred partnership is up. They might/should threaten 300 here. Which would be a tremendous rally, and give them the upper hand IMO.

288 is extremely flattering after that start.

Coulter-Nile should be drug tested - highest score by a number 8 to 11 batsman in World Cup history if you don;t mind.

Chris Gayle is the size of a house. He waddled after a ball late in the innings and it looked like his hamstring twinged.

Can't believe the Windies made him vice captain for this tournament after the disloyalty he has shown them at times.
He is a great player, but he is such a selfish cunt that he should have been frozen out years ago. He's a sex pest who doesn't give a fuck about the game or anything but himself. When he said he didn't care if Test cricket died, that was it for me. I'm done watching Gayle play, he can fuck off as far as I'm concerned. :bart

Starc sure had Gayle's number. Nearly dismissed him every ball he bowled to him, and then picked him up.

That Gayle shit was amazing. Man appealed three times :lol:

This is the game, another great low scoring tense game, this WC is a surprise. Windies have edged their way in front again! Got to believe they can do it from here.

Russel just hit the biggest six in the tournament. And a four. This is the best match of the tournament.

Umpires are shitfaced though. Appeals out the ass.

Windies done. Epic hustle from Australia. Windies need 37 and have two wickets remaining. Starc's back baby.

I mean, if you can't fill your boots against Bangladesh on a short ground with no turn you can't fill your boots.

Cricviz % chance for a Bangla win is 6%:lol:

Maybe Afghanistan can give NZ a scare at one.

Holy shit what a fucking catch.

Bairstow out for 51, what a fucking catch Hasan took there. I thought he'd dropped it.
