4:00 AM
@PaulWhite Hi! Just curious whether you were awake at the time of the final or just slept through it. ;)
 
@AJ I slept through it
 
A J
Good then.
 
I might have stayed up if we'd been playing Pakistan as I had hoped
 
A J
ohh
Will you be watching today's game?
Gonna be too late for you
 
What's on today?
 
A J
4:08 AM
It's Ind vs NZ T20 today.
I couldn't get my hands on the tickets for today's game.
It was all sold out very quickly.
 
Oh really. Yes I will definitely try to catch that!
Thanks
No Kane 🙁
 
A J
Yep. Southee will be the captain I think.
 
 
9 hours later…
1:14 PM
@AJ Now we lost the toss and James Neesham is unwell.
Not to forget Devon Conway but that was silly and self-inflicted.
 
A J
@PaulWhite Still you get to bat first. This pitch is well-suited for batting.
@PaulWhite Rachin Ravindra is in the squad at his place, I think.
 
@AJ Well Tim said he would also have chosen to bowl first because dew might well be a factor later.
It's still not a bad team, but I don't know how well this is going to go.
 
A J
Well, this pitch has almost the same conditions as Dubai's
In case it lights things a little, both teams will be playing at this pitch after a long time.
Dhoni has scored his best ODI score here.
 
Well so long as it is an entertaining game I will be happy
 
A J
Well, at least you can go to bed after watching NZ's batting. ;)
 
1:24 PM
Oh no if I'm going to watch it I'll watch the whole thing
Not much point otherwise
 
A J
Ohh
Wouldn't it be too late then?
 
I'll live
I will go to bed if we get bowled out in ten overs for 50 runs though
 
A J
How many T20 CWC matches did you manage to watch?
 
I kept an eye on most of the main ones. Even the smaller games when I was free.
It wasn't an ideal time of day though
 
A J
It's almost morning there, right?
 
1:28 PM
I guess. It is currently 2:30am Thursday
 
A J
You shouldn't have missed the Eng vs NZ semifinal. It was quite entertaining.
 
Still feels late rather than early.
@AJ Yes I regret that.
But that's easy for me to say in hindsight
 
A J
I had lost hopes till the 10th over, but it came back after watching their batting in the death overs.
A few more runs in the final would have made NZ won, but unfortunately they lost wickets in the last few overs. I hoped for more than 200. It would have been very hard to chase.
 
Kane's innings was very good (with a bit of luck)
 
A J
he missed his century.
 
1:36 PM
I think I read it was a record total for a T20 WC (set, not chasing obv)
 
A J
Yep
 
I don't mind losing to most teams, but Australia is an exception
To be fair, they played better cricket on the day
 
A J
Yeah, they snatched two WCs from you.
 
I just don't like their style very much
 
A J
@PaulWhite couldn't disagree. they played aggressive from the beginning.
 
1:37 PM
yeah
Off to a great start 4/1
 
A J
yeah, not a good start
 
 
1 hour later…
2:58 PM
Good innings from Martin Guptill
 
A J
True
What does ANZ mean? It's written on their t-shirts
 
A J
Ohh
Not a bad score
 
3:18 PM
Would have liked 180
But it might be enough to make it a bit exciting
We will need to bowl very well
 
A J
3:50 PM
Great start
 
Yes RR > 10
Trent is not having a good time
21 runs off that over
 
A J
Southee gave 15 runs as well.
 
Perhaps Santner can take six wickets
 
A J
Would love to see six wickets off six consecutive balls
 
Wouldn't that be great
 
A J
3:59 PM
yep
the record is 4 I think. Perhaps Malinga.
 
A J
4:20 PM
If India had played this way in the CWC from the beginning, they would have won the cup.
