I will hunt down my nearest hat shop and munch my way through it if England beat Sri Lanka today. Call me a cynic, but let’s be brutally honest: they are underprepared, they don’t know their best side and they’re facing a revitalised Sri Lanka playing with the same unbridled aggression and joy which earned them the Cup a decade ago.
Regardless of who wins, let’s hope it is at least a contest and that there will be some good individual performances from both sides.
Here’s the scorecard. Leave your erudite observations and rants in the comments.
