Thumbs Up Would be disappointing to miss out on this as we probably are the only team that is capable of putting it up to the test playing nations.

Jesus wept.

Uganda were woeful.  We really should have put 200+ up today against them. We are still only operating at 60-80% capacity, we will need to step it up big time.

Cruised past Oman the day.

Really should have bowled them out though.

Was disappointed with that too. Thought Nepal might hang on for an upset there but not too be, is there much to fear from the Canadians?

T'was a slow pitch the day, but I would worry against the better sides.

We should get past the Canadians, the real test with the Dutch/Scotland/Namibia games.

Yeah, those four runs against Namibia could really bite us in the ass now, you hanging on for those games?? Afghans seem on good form too.

Aye,

We're here to the end.  In Abu Dhabi at the minute, we were at an Asian CL game this evening, off to Ferrari World in the morning and then back to Dubai on Thursday.

Canadians traditionally have about 3 spinners in the team and was that not our downfall again Namibia Kev? Would still expect something around a 30 run/5 wicket win again them

They are traditional unfit though and we are playing them in the 20,000 seater SCS.  Big outfield, bat first and put them about the pitch.

There didn't look like there was much for the spinners in it against Scotland.

Our downfall v Namibia was a number of things.  The 24 run over from Mooney, us slowing the rate and not taking chances, Wilson gifting his wicket having got back into it.  Uganga took them to 4 runs, and they were sh*te.

Gonna be a tough ask to win 3 huge games on the trot but one thing we have on our side is that we are used to playing in huge games.
