Here’s an unrepresentative and random selection of the twitter feed from the England V Sri Lanka match on Sunday.
England supporters should only read while appropriately restrained.
@LiebCricket: Next World Cup I’d quite like England to select an a capella group as their squad and just crush the anthem singing thing.#ENGvSL #CWC15
@AllOutCricket: England have started aggressively and well, 38-0 from four overs. Also, Duran Duran like Lasith Malinga. #CWC15
@thefulltoss: England on course for 450 here. Somehow I think 150 is more likely though #CWC15
@ZaltzCricket: Bell 31 off 23. 6 fours, 2 drops, one other half-chance missed. All action from The Sledgehammer Of Eternal Justice.
@ZaltzCricket: Moeen spoons Mathews limply to mid off. 62-1. He hit that as sweetly as an unripe lemon.
@TheCricketGeek: This strategy of England picking out of form batsmen is funny but you have to think it won’t lead to many wins.
@ZaltzCricket: Bell out after a curate’s omelette of an innings. 35 off 24 with 7 fours. Then 14 off 29 with 0 fours. Then plays on. Eng 101-3 in 21st.
@cwjreynolds: Has any other commentary duo had more mobile phone mishaps than Botham and Warne?
@legsidelizzy: Textbook wicket loss just before the powerplay.
@ZaltzCricket: Morgan rebuilds carefully. He’s primed to cut loose. He cuts to cover instead. Out for 27 off 47. 161-4 in the 35th.
@TheCricketGeek: Six of the last seven England hundreds in ODIs have come in losing causes
@TheCricketGeek: Everyone seems to have forgotten Moeen’s ton in a win in the last game!
@legsidelizzy: There is so much to like about so many of England’s players. Real talent, real ability. Jury remains out on the management
@GregBaum: England 0/54 off the last five. Sri Lanka letting them off the hook. #CWC15
@NHoultCricket: England pass 300 in successive ODIs for the first time since 2011 World Cup. (they lost the 2nd game v Ire)
@17thManDiary: England reach the Druids number and reach for the cider #EngvSL
@AllOutCricket: Good start, consolidation + big finish. 309-6. Eng will be very happy, plans executed. Can they back it up with the ball? #CWC15
@_TheTonk: Worst. Review. Ever. #WorldCup#CWC2015 Sri Lanka makes woeful lbw review call against England
