I think NZ are a bridge too far. They're looking like possible finalists.

Yes but this is a pivotal moment for the next 12 months. Thump Afghanistan today and they have just enough in the tank to beat PAK and SL & start the summer in one ragged piece. Struggle to win today, rest of WC possibly winless, summer = 100% horrible.

OK lads. Roll them for under 100, knock it off in 10 overs and remember what it feels like to win. Here we go.

You'd rather live in a country in which it is illegal to be gay and in which freedom of expression and assembly are tightly controlled?

I really didn't think I'd see the day when Afghanistan would be disappointed about coming off for rain against South Africa.

Well it can be quite tricky going for job interviews when you're in jail for being who you are.

PS: It is also illegal to be gay in Singapore. So there goes your meritocracy.

"Singapore’s political environment is stifling. Citizens face severe restrictions on their basic rights to freedom of expression, association, and peaceful assembly through overly broad criminal laws..." - Human Rights Watch. Enough with this Singapore Is Great bullshit, please.

Are you fed up with stubborn stains? Have you stolen millions and can't make it go away? Well help is at hand! Try new Busisiwe Mkhwebane! She lightens! She brightens! She whitewashes like nothing else! Now with added scapegoating!

Bathabile Dlamini says she was an "easy target". It's true. Because that’s what happens when you’re catastrophically bad at your job, aggressively dismissive of valid criticism, and unshakably loyal to a predatory elite that’s stripping the country.

"Thank you, South Africa. We couldn't have done it without you, honestly. We also couldn't have done it without you honestly." The Guptas' letter to SA.

Dear South Africans... As they prepare to marry off their sons in lavish ski resort weddings, the Guptas send a long-overdue thank you letter to all of us.

Jacob Zuma has been called a lot of things by his fart-catchers but the Lord God Almighty must surely be a first.

The rand has dropped from "Quantity easing" to "Relax, people, having to contradict senior members of your party, who are lying about their tweets endorsing economic ruin, is totally part of being president".

The best one-liner on money I ever read was from Hyman Minsky, who said, “Anyone can create money; the trick is to get it accepted.” It’s the reason why institutions matter.
