Do you think they would have time to put in a drop in pitch and have it tready in 3 days ??
Maybe if they tready lightly

Given the comment re "this millennium", bit rich given the football world cup had to be brought up to deflect? Were you even born then?
No, but it is another major sporting tournament we've won more recently than you. That said, I don't remember deflecting with that anyway.

Don't worry, you used to be a good sporting nation and I'm sure you will be again soon.
Was directed at toomy, but the shoe still fits.
and my comments stand. You can stop crying mate, you'll improve as a sporting nation soon. I truly believe that.
Haha, we aren't the ones crying, in fact still celebrating. :grin:

You and toomy however..........sob sob (try ripe grapes next time) :wave:
I think you know my feelings quite well on T20 cricket, so no, no sour grapes on my part.

I watched half a game of the whole competition.
I wonder if you watched only half a game (conveniently) this time around.

I watched 2 full games (and 2 half games) games this year. One of those games I watched live.

It's still only 20/20 but it's good to be the world champion in both forms of white ball cricket.

Well played England on winning the T20 WC

Irony was coaches for England & Pakistan were Australian.

If you want to be the best in cricket , best get an Australian coach

And neither are fit to be Root's butler. Root's also not in out 20/20 squad.

Guess we'll have to rely on beating you 2-0 in the swries just before.

Or maybe we rely on the fact that we beat all 3 semi finalists and you didn't beat any of them.

Or maybe I just rely that we are clearly the best white ball side in the world.

I dont play cricket, I dont support Ireland or Australia in cricket.
Your not the BEST white ball side in the world, either
for India is the no1 ranked T20 side.

Where are India in the ODI rankings?
Who beat India by 10 wickets recently?

World champion T20
World Champion ODI
Best white ball side in the world.

I don't see how it's even debatable.

Can't see England taking it too seriously. Little bit of "after the Lord Mayor's show". Still going though. WE ARE THE ARMY.
