Cricket World Cup starts today. Anyone bothered?
Might watch the final.
Not a good start against South Africa. 1-1.

I'm watching it, I'll pretty much watch any sport to be fair.

Except for women's football and Scottish football obviously, oh and Scottish women's football.

Better not start a Women's World Cup thread then...

Feel free, I just won't open it.
Womens football is definitely getting better since they started taking it more seriously.
SA chasing 312

I'm even tempted to watch the England World Cup games when it kicks off next week. 
Pretty close game. England need a couple of wickets.

There's one.
They've just shown the Stokes catch for the 7th wicket on SSN, hell of a catch!
Great catch for a ginger.
England win by 104 runs
Quite convincing in the end. 
So England Cricket Team have lost Ramprakash, their batting coach or something. Is that not a bit of a strange one just after the first game in a World Cup? Don't really follow cricket so don't know if any scandal involved or if coaches are as free moving? 
Pakistan doing well against England. 184-2
The fielding has been shocking.
Record breaking innings about to start

Roy completes his terrible game.

Not sure why they reviewed that.

You jinxed Butler you cunt.

What the fuck is it with Pakistan? They seem to have a hoodoo over us. They are just a below average side too!

If they'd have just hit more sixes they would have won it.

Eh, you taking the piss?

I’m serious, just 3 more sixes and they would have won that.
Enjoyable watch. Hero you are right, hate Cricket usually but enjoying the world cup only when England are playing. Couldn't watch another team play.
