We were well on top, smashing 'em, then their surprise inclusion Duckworth-Lewis came out to bat.

We could have done with Duckworth and Lewis in the top six all through the World Cup instead of the crap we have been served up.

101 required from 25 overs.

Do we go for it or do we pray for more rain and a point?

"We could have done with Duckworth and Lewis in the top six all through the World Cup"


I think Jack and Vera Duckworth would have been an improvement

I understand the principle behind D/L and I quote:

"A team with ten wickets in hand and 25 overs to bat can be expected to play more aggressively than if they had ten wickets and a full 50 overs, for example, and can consequently achieve a higher run rate"

But this is England we're talking about! XD

The underdogs won by 9 wickets (D/L method) :)
