Post Champions Trophy - England beat New Zealand at Cardiff
Cathedral Road was chockablock yesterday. It took half an hour to get down to the fields.

Cardiff was hosting another international day, this time it was the Cricket.

Enjoy the highlights if you're in the UK.


New Zealand choked on a wicket with a bit of grip and bounce for the fast men.

Here's the comment from Aggers :-

Wood had produced an excellent piece of bowling.

It was the classic cross-seam delivery, something Stuart Broad has always said works well at this ground, something that England reach for quite a lot in one-day cricket.

It's not a new tactic - Andy Roberts used to slip it in for the West Indies off his bouncer, reasoning that if the ball landed on the shiny portion it could skid on and surprise the batsmen with pace, and that if it landed on the seam it could jump up and cause them a different sort of problem.

On pitches like this, it can grip a little. It can stick and bounce, and that's what happened to Williamson.

Again, no mark. Again, no puff of dust.



England and Wales face OZ next up.

And OZ were duly put away with England and Wales 40 runs faster than the asking rate when Birmingham weather intervened.

Cardiff is a result pitch if Sri Lanka's innings is any indisation.

Sri Lanka went from 161-3 to 167-7 in the blink of an eye and Pakistan were asked to score 237 for what should be a resounding win.

Pakistan are now 27 for 0 off 6 overs.

A horrible dropped catch off Malinga early on ... that was awful.

Pakistan eventually got there, but their 7 wickets down effort was a curate's egg of a performance.

Quote:
Analyst Simon Hughes on Test Match Special: "Pakistan's bowling attack made this possible. Sri Lanka were primed for a big score and the turning point in the innings was when Angelo Mathews was clean bowled by Mohammad Amir.

"Sri Lanka never really had enough and, although they bowled well, their fielding was flawed and they didn't deserve to win."

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed: "All credit goes to the bowlers, Junaid and Amir played very well. I'm very impressed with Fakhar too. He is a good prospect."

Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews: "It was a see-saw game. Pakistan held their nerve, so credit goes to them. They deserve it.

"It was a funny wicket - the ball was stopping. We knew we hadn't got the runs but that we could bowl well. Our bowlers were brilliant. Unfortunately we dropped catches and that cost us the game."


SEMI-FINALS :-

Tomorrow - Cardiff - England v Pakistan

Thursday - Birmingham - Bangladesh v India


Both matches will see a lot of sunny weather.
