It’s another daft o’clock start this side of the coil as England play South Africa in Chennai at the MA Chidambaram Stadium

Their Quest to win the world cup and pocket the brass is still on, so far I ain’t seen the writing on the wall or heard the fat lady warm up, never mind sing. So it’s all systems go in the group stages of week two, then again it could be the start of week three, i suppose that’s a mute point really.

An England win and they’ll go to the top of Group B above South Africa for the now and that’s how me and the girls like it.

Can England restore some pride they say. I’m not going to make any excuses but the fielding has let us down at times with more than a couple of dropped catches and that’s just one of those things that could be looked at, but when you think that qualifying for the quarter finals is the first goal in the world cup quest a win today should ease the stress from the press.

The Mantra is still blasting as louder as it ever was and so it’s all systems go for England at the moment. South Africa have played a couple and fair play they’ve won ’em both pretty convincingly and there’s no way that the Proteas will take England lightly. South Africa won’t sit back and take it easy as they are out to win the cup for themselves so bring it on.

Radio T’internet is chooned ready and raring to go for an England win and should Ireland have a repeat performance of their last match well group B could just start to boil for that there fourth place spot. You know what to do by now, here’s the usual suspects ready to keep you up to speed with the goings on from near and far, the scorecards are everywhere that your spoilt for choice.
