The World Cup is finally beginning to warm up. Yesterday’s game between India and Australia was the first heavyweight showdown of the tournament, and those of us who cry when Smith and Warner laugh, and laugh when Smith and Warner cry, were rolling in the aisles by the end. India completely out-played [...]

A good performance, a good win, and suddenly everything looks rosy again. Bangladesh simply couldn’t live with England in Cardiff on Saturday, and everyone sensed there was only going to be one winner once our batsmen sped past 100 without losing a wicket.
