The cost of the roof at Wimbledon was c. 90 million. You'd be probably looking at over a billion just to buy the properties round Lords, even if you could persuade everyone to sell.

Millennium Stadium in Cardiff has a roof, but would be rather short boundaries.

Looks like the next game, England v West Indies, should be able to be played.

Could be that the semi-finals and/or finals end up being rained off. (There are reserve days for those, but no guarantees it won't rain 2 days in a row.)

Superb knock by Finch...and to think that four months ago I had him marked as finished at international level.

Yep and Smith again helped in getting the innings moving. But once more one of the Marsh brothers fluffs his lines and almost derails the finish. Fortunately Maxwell could find the ropes i those final overs.

Sri Lanka were doing it easy when I fell asleep (0/60 odd after 7 overs) and I thought I'd be waking up to a loss. Bit surprising to see us win by almost 100.

Looks like we're going to get a game, although I think Messrs Duckworth, Lewis & Stern may be called into action at some point.

India off to a flying start.

Did anyone see that Kohli wicket? He was not out, yet he walked! Looks like the creak of the handle made him feel that he had touched the ball. Damn!

Pretty decent score by India. I thought they would cross 350, but the Pakistanis got wickets and slowed down the scoring at the end. Kohli declaring himself out should have cost at least 15 runs. He must be kicking himself for that.

Highest run chase in a world cup was 329 (England/Ireland) and the top five are a majority with some minnows. So, this should be a hard chase.

Looked like they could have chased down 400 today, if they'd had to. Looking at their fixtures, they'll need to beat Australia on Thursday and/or India next week to make the semi-finals I would say.

I think WI maybe fooled a few people with their performance against Pakistan.

Warner and Khawaja doing a number on the Bangladeshis..... 1 for 296 as I type this.

The only problem with a scoreline like that is that it might be just as hard for the Australians to get wickets...

Yeah Khawaja should have just kept going. Be a pretty frosty dressing room for the next few days...weeks... months.

Our team never lets anyone forget if they are at fault for a runout. You run out someone once in 1997 and you are a shit runner for life...

Damn, that was a close game. But as they say, a miss is as good as a mile.

Afghanistan reminds me of Bangladesh about 10 years ago. A little rough around the edges. They will probably really do well in a few years,  only if they achieve peace.

Yes!

Even if your team is not doing great, I love those games where the last over decides it and it could go either way.

The SA/Pakistan game is quite decent today, it could be anybody's game.  I think a loss here would mean they are out of the tournament.

Given the losses to Pakistan and SL, the England team will be in trouble if they lose tonight. Their last three matches are Australia, India, NZ.

Go Aussies! I probably won't watch the whole match (finishes at ~3am), but the first innings definitely.

That is a really horror draw, because even if they get through, they'll be playing two of those three teams in the Semis and Final again.

I can't see Australia, NZ or India losing twice in a row to England. Those teams are too good not to learn from mistakes.

I live about 40 miles away from Lord's and there's no way we'd be getting a game on here today, it's rained very hard overnight and is still raining.

Pretty different Aussie team from the one that lost 5-0 in ODIs here last year.

You know, the best part of watching the Aus/Eng game is that I do not care who wins. So, I appreciate every good play!

Finch was set up so well when he got out. There is a release of pressure when you get a century and you let your guard down.

You might want to watch the England innings. The English batsmen are doing a pretty good impression of falling like dominos! (15 for 2 now).

I've been to Lords. Went to see Baz & the Kiwis play England in the first test in May 2015.
There was some restrained booing because the Kiwis had bitch-slapped the English in the WC group stages just 3 months prior.
It was more like a gentle shushing...
The English cricket crowd doesn't know how to boo properly. Must be that stiff upper lip thing.
I was a few pints in at the end of the day, happy to have enjoyed a rare sunny London day, loud AF while we're packed like sardines in the seats, and all these sour faces giving me and my BILs the looks.
I helped them justify Brexit, in hindsight.

As did Ricky Ponting who was seen smiling like a Cheshire Cat in the dressing room.

Always a good day seeing England crumble. Can we write them off? Are they goooooone?

I have to admit I got it horribly wrong with South Africa. They're quite the rabble this year.

Bah, my dark horses Kiwis got beaten by a backs-to-the-wall Pakistan.

Pak played well. How long will their momentum last?

Let's see how the Windies quicks do against India tomorrow. And will India middle-order collapse again? Will they go for spin or pace?

Not the ideal score by India. I would have preferred around 300.

Poor wicket keeping by WI. That attempted stumping of Dhoni looked like a high school wicket keeper.

The Indian spinners should find the pitch suitable.

The game could go any way!

Doesn't help when Dhoni's strike rate is in the 50s and 60s for much of his innings. Coming in after 25 overs and scoring at under a run a ball is too slow. He was at 20-odd after 40 balls.

Yeah. He got mercilessly trolled after the last game. I think this tournament is going to be his swan song. The Indian selectors are known for keeping the greats well after they have passed their prime.

what does Shami have to do to get MoM award? two 4-fors and got nought. Bowlers were key today, I get that Kohli steadied the batting, but still...

The Straya-Kiwi D/N should be interesting... let's see how the Kiwis play that strong Aussie batting order, bowling will be tested.

Win probability is 64% Australia. At Lord's.

The elegantly restrained booing will be hilarious. Wish I could be there. There's always hotstar though.

So, semis predictions anyone?

Chances that England can get knocked out of the semis with losses in the 2 games against good teams. If so, Pakistan will probably make the semis with 2 wins against AFG/BD.

NZ also has 2 hard games(Aus/Eng). I predict 2 losses for them, leaving them with 11 points.  Even if Bangladesh or Pakistan get 2 wins, they will not have the NRR to make the semis assuming NZ has no blowout losses.

I predict that one of the semi finals will be between Australia and New Zealand. The other is India vs... who knows?

Given the run home I wouldn't be surprised if Pakistan are the fourth side. That'd make a very interesting semi final if it's India v Pakistan.

Semi-finals are in Manchester and Birmingham. It will be a home game for India and Pakistan (if they get #4 spot). I'm assuming 1v4 and 2v3.
There's a heck ton of Indians and Pakistanis living in the UK. The 2011 census lists the British Indian population as 1,451,862 (2.30%), and British Pakistani as 1,174,983 (1.9%) (numbers from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Asian).
It doesn't matter who you are or where you come from when Ind v Pak and Aus v NZ are on. It's a thriller that any cricket fan would not miss.
Or Eng vs Any of the those 4.

Lol!

I know of those crazy Indians, like me, who buy tickets a year in advance for the last India game and the finals. I think there will be more Indians in those stands than Pakistanis. Any cricket game, anywhere in the world, is a home game for the Indians.

In 2007, we had bought tickets to the WC in Antigua planning that India would be in one of the games. Unfortunately, they were knocked out before that round. You should have seen the stadium for the Eng/SL and the NZ/BD game it was a sea of blue. There were a handful of Kiwis (20?), but they made up for the rest in beer drinking. And their haka dance was pretty impressive. About 2 from SL and maybe 10% of the crowd from England and 10% local Antiguans. Was such a fun week, cricket on the beaches, open bars in resorts, sun and sand, and beautiful turquoise water.

Will certainly be more Indian than Pakistan supporters, just because of the price of tickets and the relative wealth of the two groups. Most English people don't follow cricket at all, so British Asians make up a pretty substantial proportion of the total number of cricket fans here.

Afghanistan on target for a superb win against Pakistan, who are 184-6 with 45 overs gone and barely scoring against the spinners. In spite of 4 of his recognised bowlers still having overs left, captain Gulbadin brings himself on, serves up a series of full tosses and wides and duly concedes 18 off the over, to decisively swing the game away from his team.

Poor Afghanistan! So close! England (temporarily?) out of the top 4, Australia definitely won their match.

Damn, so pissed off. I take a road trip without wifi and I cannot watch the England/India game. I will most probably miss the next India game also :-(

Looks like England have decided to re-enter the tournament and have a great score (205/2 in 32 overs) (reading the score on my mobile)

You checked the score at a good time - only 13 runs off the last 5 overs, plus the wicket of Bairstow. Having Roy back from injury seems to have made a big difference to England.

Can you get an audio stream of the match?

That catch by Jadeja to dismiss Roy was very impressive.

I'm not sure which team to barrack for in this one. It's always good from an Aussie perspective to see England lose, but I also want to see India lose a game so we have a hope of beating them if we meet India in the finals :)

Geez the English batsmen have put the cue in the rack. Scared of hitting the ball.
