How KP saved England

Boy, they sure were glad to have him back. Well, him and Dimi and Graeme Swann. But KP's 58 off 38 balls gave them a shitload of confidence, and Adil Rashid coming on later also did a good job of containing runs.

Funnily enough, Stuart Broad didn't have all that bad of a match. In fact, I'd go so far as to say he had a good one. 3 wickets, lowest economy rate of England's bowlers, this:

I think he's pretty pleased with himself.

England are through to the Super Eights based on their NRR. The breathe a collective sigh of relief because they were so damn close to not making it that this escape from embarrassment will be more than well received. It was really a matter of one match that would have decided their fate. Nice compact format, this World T20.

There's a pretty funny photo of KP's dismissal:


Good one, Ajmal.

Broad looks like an 11 year old school boy!

I really wanted Stani's mob to win so England were out of the tournament but it seems they decided to field a proper side for once.

Esra, I wanted England to win because they're a pretty entertaining side to watch, if only to see them fuck up big time.

Boncam, interesting blog, I didn't know about it before. Thanks for the link.

England are safe. But will Australia begin their early Ashes preparations?

Ricky said if they lost, they'd have nothing to do for 2 weeks. And he said it as though it was a bad thing.

Everyone knows he'd be secretly pleased for the extra prep time.
