    I kinda thought you were saying things had been set up in a certain way that would increase the chances of India winning, not just icc are India fans.

    Plus its a marketing thing I wouldn't read too much into it. Kholi is an icon of the sport and has near mythic status in India. None of the other captain's have that level of star power even in thier own countries.

    Yeah he’s just a massively monetisable asset given his status in India, India’s love of cricket and India’s population, that’s all. Clearly the ICC is dominated by Eng, Ind, Aus so will be subject to bias and self-interest by those three, but suggesting ICC are actively trying to give India the WC is a bit tinfoil hat.

    Ncurd, glad you explained ya bloody illiterate - I honestly thought you were arguing against reserve days which would be mental from you.

    Outstanding catch, always think inner field catches like that are the hardest the speed the ball is moving at and reaction times required to go that far left or right. They aren't really expected to catch anything unless it goes directly to them.

    Gayle out!

    Cheers buddy, lovely catch that!

    A little disappointed not to be Rickrolled though, it’s never happened to me. Would have been my virginity

    Agree on that, it’s basically a reaction catch but at full stretch and the ball going at pace.

    Behind her as well. Reeeeally good catch
