    Afghanistan got the required runs in the 42nd over to win by five wickets.

      In Hamilton, New Zealand won the toss fielded and has Bangladesh all out for 234.

      The NZ openers surpassed that total on their own, both making centuries and New Zealand batted all through the second day and most of the third, declaring when Williamson made his double century for 715 for 6.

      Bangladesh need 419 to avoid an innings defeat and are 174 for 4 at the close.

          Now here's a good insertion

          WI won the toss, asked England to have first go and got them out for 113 in 28.1 overs.

          They did the necessary in 12.1 overs, winning by seven wickets.

            From 418-6 to 113 all out. England have some good players but not the few world class you need to be a top team. Also reflected here is the unevenness of WI performances.

              In the third ODI Afghanistan won the toss, batted and recovered from 74 for 5 to score 256 for 8.

              In reply Ireland were 73 for 4 in the 16th over but Balbirnie and Dockrell put on 143 for the fifth wicket which fell in the 43rd over. Another wicket fell in the next over but Balbirnie (34) and McBrine (9) brought them home with an over to spare.

              Balbirnie who was dropped with seven runs needed scored 145 no in the end.

              In his 52 matches before today, he had scored 8 sixes. Well he scored 8 more today.

                All those who put their shirt on Ireland when the Taliban were 74/5 had a hairy ride until finally getting their winnings.

                        I watched the highlights of the Windies blasting Pakistan out for 105 yesterday in the worrild cup. It was quite like the glory days of Holding and Garner etc - giant, super athletic demon fast bowlers slinging mini cannon balls down just short of a length and the ball fizzing up at chin height. Pak couldn't cope at all. Don't follow it enough to know how good they are but was good to see yesterday.

                          Spare a thought for the Ladies of the Mali T20 team, currently engaged in the Kwibuka Tournament in Kigali.

                          In their first match on Tuesday, they won the toss, batted and lasted nine overs to make six all out. Rwanda rattled off the required total in four balls to win by ten wickets.

                          Their second match, yesterday, went a small bit better. They won the toss again and lasted 15.4 overs making eleven.
                          Tanzania did the needful in four balls winning by ten wickets.

                          Today, Uganda won the toss, batted and made 314 for 2. Unfortunately Mali were all out for 10 in 11.1 overs to lose by 304 runs.

                          They play Tanzania again tomorrow before finishing up against Uganda again on Saturday.

                          EDIT They currently hold the record for the three lowest T20 scores.

                              It's their first tournament internationally. Maybe some day we'll read about them touring Ireland in a T20 series.

                              Consequently the ICC head honchos have so far gotten the format of the CWC wrong again. A multitude of dead rubbers to come in the next two weeks. Having said that they can't be blamed for the lack of quality in some of the sides on show (SA, WI, SL and PK).

                                They are way out of their league, unfortunately. Some of them might never recover from the battering.
