World T20 Day 5 Pt 2 [Pt 1]
It's over! Done! Bye bye Guyana! We're still alive! Aren't we?
William Porterfield won the toss and tried a Gayle. Bowled first, took England in a headlock with a stunning bowling and fielding display and gave them just 120. Without Sir Bat-a-lot it would have been far less. However, the Irish batting is weak and the English bowling not bad. England might have defended it. We shall never know. After 3.3 overs and an absolute ripper by Lumb at the boundary rain set in again and did not stop until the match was called off. England have scampered through to the Super 8 [scorecard], and if there is one guy in the team who deserves it, it is Eoin "Guten" Morgan.
And I am saying Gute Nacht now.
PS. The K-Pie killed himself with exactly the same shot as last night. I am telling you the K-Pie is a fruitcake.
PPS: Kevin O'Brien's wicket celebration, the crazy fingerwiggle at the forehead, reminded me of some very local ritual drinking gestures. And it will have been inspired by those, I bet my backside.
PPPS: And thanks to the rain I won't have to write those idiotic Glamorgan posts now. Phewwwww, that was close.
