20-20, Australia Out !

Oh yes, we were crap in the opening game when we lost to the mighty Dutch, but the supposed world beaters of Australia have departed the tournament early after losing both of their pool games, to Chris Gayle and then Sri Lanka.

What is it with Gayle by the way, he was dreadful against England, moaning, uninspired and lacklustre, and then against Australia he suddenly becomes imperious and commanding ?

Now all England have to worry about is some overly complicated run rate system in the Holland - Pakistan game, come on lads, let's have, er, a low scoring narrow win for Pakistan ? Oh, I don't know.
