    On paper it is now going Englandís way.
    TV seem to reckon that around 250 is a par score so NZ very much still in it.
    Pressure of chasing may just be the deciding factor.

    Would love to see England blow it but canít see it somehow.

    If Roy and Bairstow see out the first 10 overs theyíll cruise it.

    Root very careless shot and got away with not edging one just before.
    Nerves kicking in?

    NZ bowling brilliant on a bowler friendly wicket.

    Re: Cricket World cup

    You'd have to think NZ are in the driving seat now. England down on runs and NZ bowling well. It doesn't look like changing at the moment.

    Re: Cricket World cup

    Don't see a way back for England now, pitch has gone, great bowling, pressure

    Re: Cricket World cup

    England bat deep though

    Re: Cricket World cup

    Is it fair to suggest this is something of a cock-up? A free-to-air final to show everyone the swashbuckling batting of England and they prepare a seamer's pitch. Or just NZ playing really well and one of those things?

    This is a home World Cup and I have no idea why they would prepare this sort of wicket. Bowling is definitely NZ s strength.

    I can't believe there's not been a post in this thread in over an hour - unbelievable stuff as the game ends in a tie with the World Cup to be decided by a super over.

    Re: Cricket World cup

    Boult owes his team a big over here

    Re: Cricket World cup

    15 for England off the super over, Archer to bowl now.

    I've been following onbbc text whilst watching tennis, how come NZ never won on losing less wickets?

    Unbelievable. Those 4 over throws off Stokes bat crucial bit of luck.

    God knows, I feel so sorry for New Zealand, the first six in the final over was a few inches away from being a catch, then the second one came when they ran two and the throw in hit Stokes' bat and ran to the boundary for four. I also don't get why when both sides get fifteen from the super over, the team batting second loses.

    My understanding is that theICC were in charge of pitch preparation for the competition.

    England won because if its a tie it goes to who hit the most boundaries during the match.
