Here’s more on Eoin Morgan’s finger injury. I’m not worried yet.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of the World Cup warm-up between England and Australia at the Ageas Bowl. The recent form of both teams is such that they might need to warm down rather than up, lest they burn this goddamn house right down before the World Cup has even started. But this game has been scheduled for months and the culture of our times dictates that you can’t cancel a match for no reason at 24 hours’ notice, so here we are.
I have a confession to make:
I’ve never watched a World Cup warm-up game, so I’ve no idea what level of intensity to expect. It’s not an official ODI; it’s not even a List A game. But it’s England v Australia, so that counts for something.
I shot the deputy an’ all
