We’ve been watching the England vs West Indies match on and off today.
The match is underway at the M.A.Chidambaram Stadium at Chepauk in Chennai.
We thoroughly relished Chris Gayle making mincemeat of the English bowlers before he was out lbw James Tredwell for 43.
England won the toss and elected to bat. They ended with 243-10.
If England loses the match today, they’ll have to pack their bags and head home.
That’s what we want too – The Brits should be at home and out of the World Cup.
England – 243-10
West Indies – 225-10
