Day 16 at the World Cup: England easily beat the West Indies in their World Cup clash at Southampton on Friday.
On the World Cup Daily, Geoff Lemon and Adam Collins are following the Cup all around England and Wales. Their long weekly podcast The Final Word has been going for five years, but now it has changed into a short daily form for cricket’s biggest tournament.
Every day, The Final Word will team up with Firstpost to bring you a new episode from wherever Geoff and Adam are on the road. On trains and buses, in pubs, on the street, in parks, on barges floating down rivers, and anywhere else that they might end up.
They are also watching an awful lot of cricket, and can summarise all the matches that you didn’t have time to see, or can bring you into the discussion about the ones you did watch.
They will nominate their player of the day, who will probably not be the official man of the match, and will pick one moment or person or incident to go into The Final Word Hall of Fame, with an overall winner to come at the end of the tournament.
Today’s episode for Day 16 comes to you from London where Geoff and Adam are preparing for Australia v Sri Lanka on Saturday. The Aussies know they need a stirring performance.
Tune in to The Final Word World Cup Daily on Saturday for Day 17.

Large parts of the cricketing world rallied to England's cause, with the West Indies, Pakistan, Ireland and Australia all going ahead with scheduled tours.
New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said the tours would help the sport through the coronavirus pandemic.
West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor said on Saturday that the teams would perform the gesture and praised her England counterpart Heather Knight for offering to join them in recognising the movement.
