So how did everyone cope with the new change of on field umpires not calling the no-balls?  I didn't see a front foot replay all night.

Wanting to move on, but it's funny how I can't remember seeing a double bouncer in years, and then see two the same night - this one from Dale Steyn

Sounds like there was a bit of confusion there as well.

No idea if youre being sincere on the double bounce thing, but I think we can agree it is not a common occurrence.

Once again for those at the back, the fact it was a double bouncer and it deceived the batsman enough to rattle the stumps and the confusion after all contributed to it being a bit of a farce. Youve inadvertently shown the difference there Id say by the fact that the batsman in the mens game just danced down the pitch and smoked it.

Next youre going to be telling me the Thai women today were power hitters

Yes, I am being sincere.  I must not watch as much cricket as you, but I genuinely cannot remember one at an this level, perhaps the Daniel Sams ball in this year's BBL, but that didn't even get near the pitch, so yes, I agree with you that it's not a common occurence, and to have two in the same night was odd.

I'm simply pointing out that you use words like "farce' and -

I'm not one to usually p*ss on the womens game, but this is pretty disheartening in a World Cup opener between two of the best sides

Most people just accept that s*** happens, and move on, but each to their own.
As I've said before comparing the Women's to Men's game is pointless.  Accept both and enjoy them for what they are.

Thailand power hitters??   Why would I tell you that?

Yeah I don't think there's any point focusing on one no ball. There are no balls in all forms of cricket and it's a free hit whatever the cause of it. We should focus on how the game is played the rest of the time, which I think is way different from men's cricket. Actually club cricketers could maybe learn a lot about careful placement of lofted shots without necessarily hitting it out of the ground.

Also we are probably assuming all the CBF members are men here.  It's sad that no women feel able to chip in to this discussion, and maybe there are in fact none on the forum(i don't know this, but I'm guessing from the things that are said on this thread)

Just don't understand why England would send arguably their best bat in Beaumont in at 7!

Trying to be a bit too clever I reckon. All for tactical thinking in T20s but, up to a point, keeping it simple is the smart choice. Get your best bat to face a lot of balls and they'll score a lot of runs.

Good recovery from England against the might of Thailand. 7/2 after 2 overs. The two early wickets were abysmal, and I cant decide if the cause was arrogance or ineptitude.

Ya, that puzzled me too...didnt she used to open in the past? Anyone know why she has been dropped so low down the order?

Possibly because they dont have a clue what theyre doing?

I believe the stated reasoning is so they have a "finisher" down the order. Completely ignores the differences in women's and men's T20 and the fact that England don't have that many quality top order batting options, but that's not shocking. Some of the coaching decisions in women's cricket are unfathomable sometimes.

As mature a chase as you'll see from Pak this AM! Sentences I never thought I'd say ;)

The Indian team seems to be on a roll...I did not expect them to beat NZ! That too with Harmanpreet still struggling to find any form.

Bloody annoying news breaking this morning- both Semi finals are planned for Thursday in Sydney (odd enough).

What makes this problematic though is that theres an 80% chance of rain, predicted around 20-30mm (plus rain in the days preceding).

Knockout games have to be min 10/overs a side to count

And NO RESERVE DAY for Semi Finals

WTF?!?!?

Also, worry for Perry as she was carried off today. Really doesnt seem like its Auss tournament this year.

England should be watching the SA/WI game tomorrow intently praying for a WI win
