Being played at the Oval. Looking forward to this game. Should be an absolute cracker!

Be a good marker laid down for whoever wins. Personally I hope India win by 10 wickets.

India chose to bat first ....... 7-0 after the first over

I hope its rained off. Indian fans are the cricketing version of Man United fans, most annoying fans in cricket. And Australia are Australia. Shame they can't both lose.
The only consolation is one of them has to lose. Hopefully they will both have their match fees deducted for some spurious reason

given both sets of supporters are supposed to 'travel in numbers' , surprising the amount of empty seats at the Oval

maybe those empty seats have been reserved by London based Aussie bartenders, who were working the late shift till the small hours?

It didn't take long for Warner and Smith to lead the Aussie media's, well Fox anyway, advertising for this match based on what I saw the other day. The Aussies really took that cheating seriously. :rolleyes:

Didn't it sell out quite quickly?

IMO both the cheats shouldve had a ten year ban apiece

mildly amusing results to the invitation to suggest a collective name for a group of Australians on the BBC coverage.... best so far :- A Strewth of Australians, A Schooner of Australians..... and my favourite ... A Sandpaper of Australians :sneaky:

75-0 after 15 overs ... slow n steady batting by India so far ;)

India flying 41/0. I think that India and ourselves have the best batting line ups, and can bat all the way down.

!00-0 after 19 overs

Dhawan notched up a half-century as well as reaching the milestone of 2000 odi runs ...only the second Indian batsman to reach that total?

121 after 21 overs.
India look as if they will get a very big score.
Starc only bowled 3 overs to start with and I wonder if they should have kept him on longer to try and get a couple of wickets.

Sharma got his half-century now

India 121-0 ...after 21 overs

looking like a score of 320-325 for India ?

Aussieโ€™s main weakness exposed here - outside of Starc and Cummins, their bowling is looking limited. India are far better than both the Windies and Afghanistan but youโ€™d expect better from them.

Something for England to look at. Play cautious against their pace men and then accelerate against Coulter-Nile, Maxwell and the terminally-useless-in-England Zampa.

Zampa is bowling utter dross. Canโ€™t wait to see Buttler have a go at him.

The trouble is the Aussies will end up using Lyon v England instead of Zampa. Lyon is rarely useless v England!
