Australia just too good for anyone. Not one team has bothered them all tournament. You're going to need a lot to beat this team, A-game, B-game, call if what you will. Dismissed Sri Lanka cheaply, knocked off the runs without breaking a sweat, and I want to see what team beats Australia.

Do join us for tomorrow's much-hyped affair, England v South Africa at Bridgetown, at 13:30 GMT. Thats all from me, Jamie Alter. Good night/morning/evening/afternoon, wherever you may be. Cheers!
