It was one of the most dramatic things I've ever seen on a sporting field. Swinging one way then another you'll never see another match quite like that again.

You couldn't write script at a World Cup final having two final ball finishes in the same game with everything still up for grabs both times.

I think England were a touch fortunate but when he margins are so fine a bit of luck can swing it either way.

Cycling and the Tour de France stuff is the worst most boring sport

Are you joking? That final yesterday was like nothing I've ever seen. Certainly streets ahead of the dross super league have been churning out this season.


TBH as great as the final several overs were I think the majority of the game wasn’t great. You want a good balance between bat and ball but I think the pitch favoured bowlers a little bit too much especially for a showpiece final. If you had the same game but without England involved (thus a team we were rooting for) would you have enjoyed most of the opening 90 overs of the day?

Don’t mind the track cycling actually, just the road cycling is dire stuff

Cricket on free to air TV is wonderful. You dont have to watch every minute or every ball, it's like background music to an English summer. It's great live, it's great on TV and it's great on radio. Not as good as live RL but still great.

It’s the perfect sport for having the numerous different commentators throughout the game and for crowd shots because of the gaps in play.....tv people need to realise though that these don’t apply or work to every sport particularly RL.
