    If no early wickets game over will be in 40 overs. Something has to happen exactly like what happened to INdia. But England middle order is very strong. So they won't allow the collapse to bother them. Not a big total.

    In tricky chases you need to bat positively. Not uber defensively like India did.

    Australia is 20 runs short I think. This is a 240 pitch, they failed to accelerate at the end and lost wickets.

    England must be patient, they have a good chance to win this. 224 can be chased no matter what.

    well eng couldnt chase 232 against srl, this is not a easy wicket but its definitely eng on driving seat.

    Another 25 runs may have done it.

    Different pitch I think, that was much slower. This one isn't that bad, Australia at one stage looked to get 250. It's just they failed to accelerate and lost wickets. Also FInch and Warner both got out cheaply.

    This is a definitely 240+ wicket, Australia didn't bat well enough.

    Pitch is not easy to bat on, ball is not coming on to the bat and slower balls, spinners are effective here. Australia will fight till the end and they have done so many times before, it is England which chokes on the big stage

    England is easily the most talented batting team in the world, it's their temperament that's questionable. All of their top 6 are world class batsmen.

    Not such a horrible pitch. Warner and Finch go missing for their at the worst possible moment. It looks like a 300 pitch.

    The longer Jason Roy bats , the easier it gets for England. Another 5/6 overs from Roy and it's game over.

    I am impressed with Roy's defense. He looks like Sehwag

    Cummins has not been great in the last few games. Time for him to step up.
