As posted before, dream final for me.  Just couldn't be happier.  NZ and England both superb in the semi finals.  Absolutely loved it but massively sleep deprived.

 

I think England will be far too strong in the final but you just don't know.

 

Weather forecast good and can't wait for Sunday night.

 

Comprehensive thrashing of Dundee Utd as a warm up.

A lot of people have been saying it may be better to lose the toss.

 

New Zealand win toss and bat.

30 overs in to the NZ innings, any thoughts?

NZ have been steady, got wickets in hand. They've stood up to pace of Archer and Wood. Don't think they've scored enough though, especially boundaries. I haven't seen many games recently that have lived up to the old adage of double the runs at 30 overs. Weather forecast to brighten and some sun later, might be better batting conditions for England?

141-4

 

Just England on top. Morgan bowling changes have brought the game back a bit. 

 

Two super confident sides will both back themselves to win.

Is it just me who thinks NZ are way behind?

 

I see folk saying 250 would be a good score and a 50-50 game. Apart from the fact I'm not sure they'll get to 250, I think england would knock that off fairly easily

During the rest of the tournament chasing totals has been difficult. England failed twice in the group stage chasing 220/230. Plus the added pressure of it being the final means runs on the board count for that wee bit extra.

All I can add is that I backed Hearts, Serena and England at odds on this weekend.

Angela Haggerty on Five Live last night making the assertion that people in Scotland have no interest in cricket.

 

Always nice to hear sweeping statements from the uninformed.

Competitve total but not an intimidating one.

Got to say I thought England looked a little lacklustre in the field, especially run out efforts. Nothing spectacular or especialy worthy of a World Cup Final so far.

If England negotiate the opening 10 overs without losing a wicket I reckon it's theirs for the taking.

I think the commentators are over stating this total. Engladn will win this easily I reckon, probably within 35 overs. Decent pitch, fast outfield, short boundaries

Nearly in big trouble but they are gradually getting on top.

Not looking anywhere near so straightforward now

Duckworth Lewis par score for 3 wickets down after 20 overs

93-3

England slipping well under target, have lost their 3 biggest wickets, they haven't had any big overs yet to get the pressure off their backs and back on NZ

Can England keep this up, just score at 7 an over?

A big over (say 15+ runs) would change things dramatically

This is some finish

 

Last ball and a possible super over..went for 2 and victory but he is out I think AND JUST ONE RUN !!

 

A SUPER OVER WILL DECIDE THIS...Who are the best 2 batsmen and who is fit enough to compete ?

 

One over each side

 

  • Weather permitting, the Super Over will commence 10 minutes after the main match. Each team bats one over under the same restrictions as for the final over in a pool match.
  • The team batting second in the main match will bat first in the Super Over.
  • Each side has three nominated batsmen, meaning that the loss of two wickets ends the Super Over.
  • In the event of the scores being level in the Super Over, the first satisfied of the following criteria will determine the winner:
    1. If the regular match utilised the Duckworth–Lewis method, criterion 4 immediately applies.
    2. The team with the most number of boundaries combined from the main match and the Super Over is the winner.
    3. The team with the most number of boundaries from the main match (that is, not including the Super Over) is the winner.
    4. A count-back from the final ball of the Super Over shall be conducted. The team with the higher scoring delivery is the winner. Runs scored from illegal deliveries count towards the total for the following legal delivery.

I thought football had some stupid rules but that extra four runs for Stokes is ridiculous.

Fantastic to watch all the same

And NZ take more wickets but not winning on a tied score.

 

But them's the rules.
