After a few weeks of prolonged Super 8s games, the English media and fans will finally know on Tuesday the team's fate in this tournament. Luckily I'm not just following the daily rigmorole/monotony of the English cricket team and focusing on more global cricketing matters. So it must be frustrating for English fans out here and back home that Duncan Fletcher's team are even still here after all this time.
I don't now what will be worse: England losing from a winning position against the talented chokers of South Africa or somehow managing a semi-final birth and losing comprehensively to New Zealand in St Lucia.
Anyway, Mike Atherton has been keeping betting tabs on the World Cup and predicts this week's outcome. As he says, it's time for the big-hitters to come to the party. Thoughts?
