    Still too early for an accurate prediction for Sunday but it's looking OK at the moment.

    Today will probably be a washout and tomorrow a rain affected game at best.

    They should have had reserve days.

    It was very hot last year. Grass went yellow and sun was out. This is trend over past 3 years although weather is back to normal.

    One benefit of this thread is that I took umbrella in the morning, saved me from getting drenched

    I think if Pak's all remaining games go wash out, we should accumulate enough points to qualify for the play offs. no?

    Another one bites the dust - SL vs. BD also abandoned due to rain.

    I said it before and will repeat it again, ICC shouldve had reserved days, didnt they have it in 1999?

    That would be a killer blow and maybe ICC would learn to have reserve days.

    Pak Aus should be ok, very little rain predicted for tomorrow. Might even get a full game.

    I guarantee you at least a quarter of people who are going on Sunday paid close too a grand or just about less for a pair. That's almost £500 for a ticket.

    My mate sold 6 for £2700!

    If that game gets rained off. Everyone who purchased a ticket from the Ballot and sold it after is getting more money in return.

    Yes tickets are being exchanged for crazy prices. It would be a catastrophe if it’s rained off.

    If tomorrow gets rained off and Sunday.

    That's 3 games in a row for me where I travel from London and didn't see even a ball being bowled. :mad:

    Does that mean the people who bought the tickets that were sold on just lose out ?. That's crazy,imagine paying £450 just to sit in the rain.

    Unfortunately.

    Regardless though. I blame the ICC. After the madness of ticket prices for the 2017 Champions Trophy Final; They really took the P*** out of fans like us and took advantage. For the Pakistan-India game they slapped on £225 for a platinum ticket.

    £225 FACE VALUE for a ticket! The finals platinum ticket is £295!

    Absolutely disgraceful.

    Looking at this wicket, if Pak bats first, they will be probably be all out on 90 or something while Sarafaz will be left scratching his fat a$$ being in shock as he thought all teams were scared from Pakistan.

    Need more fire from these opening bowlers, not enough to just restrict runs - we need 2-3 wickets in the first 15

    This is why I tend to keep religion and sports separate.

    You can't sow a lemon seed and pray to God that the tree now grow mangoes.

    We need to have a reality check. This is a fuddu team that does NOT deserve to be in the play offs if we base the rating on their quality and performance.

    High hopes bring high frustration - and that's why I never put Pak team over the moon.
