Hello and welcome to Telegraph Sport’s reside, over-by-over protection of England v Namibia in Antigua. If all goes to plan, England’s place within the Super 8s shall be confirmed at round 5am tomorrow morning. But that is determined by three issues.

  1. The climate in Antigua and St Lucia
  2. England beating Namibia tonight
  3. Australia beating Scotland within the early hours.

At least we don’t have to fret about internet run-rate. England’s high-speed victory over Oman took care of that, so now it’s nearly whether or not they can be a part of Scotland on 5 factors.  There’s no assure of that, primarily as a result of it’s pouring down in Antigua as I sort. The forecast is healthier for the remainder of the day, nevertheless it’s a layer of tension that England may do with out.

“We have got to show a little bit more and then fingers crossed for Australia,” mentioned Mark Wood. “Then when you are through to that next stage every team can go on from there. I’m absolutely confident they’ll play the game their hardest, that’s the Australian way. They’ll play hard and fair and try to get the win.”

Wood was reluctant to criticise Josh Hazlewood for suggesting that Australia may engineer England’s exit. “I think I saw it more as a respect thing if I’m honest,” he mentioned. “He was saying England have done well against Australia in the recent past and he thinks we’re a big threat. I had no problem with it. It’s all part of England versus Australia.”

For now, England versus Namibia is our concern. The match is scheduled to begin at 6pm BST1pm in Antigua.
