Even at 2,000 metres above sea level it is possible to crash down to earth. England did just that yesterday, and will now face the winners of today’s match between Australia and Pakistan in the semi-final at Centurion on Friday having missed the chance to finish top of group B.

Nobody could begrudge the Blackcaps their success after the gesture by Daniel Vettori, the captain, to withdraw a perfectly valid appeal against Paul Collingwood when the batsman absent-mindedly left his crease thinking that over had been called before Brendon McCullum threw down the stumps.
