Well said, Ronan. It's pretty handy for a second-stringer..
The pitch was flat as, Johnno! Yes, there was swing, but that's nothing to do with the pitch.
My point is there's no need to 'suddenly' start producing batsman friendly decks like you suggest - a) because the pitches have been pretty flat from the start of the tournament anyway, and b) because even on flat decks, good bowling can still bring teams undone. And that's what we saw yesterday: very, very good bowling..
Sorry to be the pedant Geoff, but Australia were bowled out for 129 chasing 248 against India, and also for 151 chasing 253 against the West Indies, both in the 1983 World Cup...
