Haven't been staying up to watch, but have certainly been following (and watching when I can)!

Obviously going for the Aussies, but love NZ too. Even more so, would love to see Bangladesh and Afghanistan do well!

Why is it obvious you are going for Australia?

I'm hoping SA get better and have a win!

Kind of paying attention.

Watching right now because DC2 is an absolute cricket tragic who is at this moment looking up the shape of the ground because "Australia does better on a round ground".  I like to make the effort to try to enjoy at least one thing that is important to each of my kids.  And I do like cricket.

But I'm also super tired and will not make it through the whole match because I was up until stupid o'clock watching Ash Barty win her first grand slam.  And I have a grand prix to watch tomorrow which I hope will be awesome because Daniel Ricciardo finally showed some pace with his new team.

Also will flick over to check the progress of the Women's Football because even though I hate soccer, I do want us to do well.

So much sport, so little sleep.  Send help.  :lol:
