    Often here people talk about how “good” teams would get to 300 from here or would rotate strike better and not go into their shell, blah, blah, blah. Let’s see how that goes for the Aussies.

    Because if this was Pakistan right now people would be out here saying our cricket is finished we should drop the whole top 3, etc.

    Archer is very new to the game, Rabada did similar things in the first series against India in India. Surprise factor.. Pakistan took archer for 70 runs after playing him in the ODI series. Still early days for now

    Nasty bouncer by Archer, right on the money. Fortunately, after cleaning up the cut on his chin, Carey is fine and carrying on.

    Blood is still dripping. Damn. What torrid time to bat. Your team is in huge trouble. You have to stick around. You have to be wary of another bouncer. You have to endure the pain. Even a 50 will become one of the most courageous 50 in world cup history.

    They even bounced back and avoided defeat from situation like:

    No, Australia completely relies on the trio of Warner, Finch and Smith, and sometimes Maxwell in death for Starc to something to bowl at. Their middle order is worse than India's.

    He was in excellent form before the WC. He is a very good player.

    I think if their was better players they would have selected them. It's Australia not Pakistan who select players on seniority.

    I think England is taking it easy now. It will come back to bite them. They have to keep applying the pressure. Anything over 250 is going to be quite challenging. Australia is going to be steaming in.

    They even bounced back and avoided defeat from situation like:

    1996; 15/4 vs WI
    1999; 68/4 vs SA
    2003; 51/3 vs SL

    Australians are aliens in World Cup, as close as to we will find a superhuman group.

    Not looking good for Aus so far but they are very good at fighting and recovering from bad starts as we saw against WI + NZ

    We most likely will see a new world cup champion. With the kind of run NZ has, they might win the whole thing lol.

    England doing the same mistake as NZ now. Never let the opposition relax. Especially against Australia who have the GOAT ODI bowler Starc bowling in WC.

    This world cup has been excellent regarding the Pitches being prepared.

    A proper contest between bat and ball test type feel in initial overs batting techniqe and temperment put to test

    I have been saying Aussies like India is massively undercooked in their middle order. Maxi and stionis have been pathetic its bein carey who has been the saviour.

    Smith and carey match hangs in balance on this pair

    60 balls from Starc is gold if the conditions persist. England cannot come in swinging the bat around. They couldn't chase 230 against Srilanka.

    Don't want to jinx it, but Smith usually goes big when set.

    He gets into ungetouttable mode. He is very close to Dhoni in that regard. Finds a way to survive. He may not be flamebuoyant. But a survivor.

    And opposite to that there's England (the oldest cricket team) with 0 World Cup trophies.

    I don't even want Australia to win another world cup

    If this pair survives another 10 overs it will be tough for England. Woakes and Archer are the only two threads England has. Others are mostly pie chuckers at pace lol
