still cant believe it.

i like the fact that cricketers can win a game and say "im getting absolutely wasted tonight" and nobody is bothered or surprised.

Well played England, this is quite incredible form!

With my experience of England it can't last, but here's hoping. :)

Cricket World Cup

Postby nevvy on Sat Feb 19, 2011 1:46 pm

Is anyone bothered?!

after a long winter of ashes cricket i wasnt really looking forward to this competition, especially as the first month is only there for the rubbish teams to get knocked out. (there are two groups of eight, each with 4 poor teams, 4 from each group go through to knock out).

Then i spent this morning watching sehwag smash bangladesh everywhere, great innings!

My predictions:
England will struggle (too much cricket this winter and slow turning pitches)
India should win, unless pressure gets to them
South Africa will struggle with slow pitches, then choke
Sri lanka are a good outside bet
Pakistan will be Pakistan, very good, or very bad. Always good to watch
Australia could be dangerous, but they dont really have the slow bowlers for the sub continent
The rest of the teams are terrible or average.

Cracking first game, I've been following it. :)

Not sure I'll be following many of the duller games in the first few weeks though.

Also, may as well stick this in with the general Cricket thread, as it doesn't get much love. :P

...and after yesterdays amazing game, today we're supposed to be entertained by Netherlands v West Indies & Canada v Zimbabwe...

Therein unfortunately lies the problem with the world cup in its current format.

I'll re-revive this thread, based on the last comment. It's all about Michael Clarke crying during the 4th test press conference :lol:

Loved this ashes series, shame there weren't any close games.
