- Missed Plunkett taking wickets in the middle of the innings.
- Wood & Archer together is probably overkill.
- England should have batted first.
- Sad to say that Ali seems to be all but done as a batsman. I can’t remember the last time he made a score in any format.

Fucking hell, I think cricket was banned there less than 20 years ago. Remarkable set of buggers.

Yeah I had them down for an upset in this WC - but was expecting it to come later in the tournament when the pitches are likely to be a bit drier.
They have a quality spinner in Rashid and also a decent one in Nami - and Hassan is a decent opening bowler. I was hoping they’d stay under the radar early games to provide a betting opportunity later in the tournament.
