Looks like we have our first washout in the CWC.

Australia v Bangladesh still a no go at the Gabba as heavy rain pours down...

Abandoned without a ball being bowled. Bonus point for Bangladesh.

Drifted in and out of the West Indies v Pakistan game. I think we have now found a team almost as bad as us.

:D They did the Duckworth Lewis calculation on yesterday's NZL v ENG match if rain hit in the NZ innings....NZ would've needed -12 runs to win if the match was stopped at the (stupid) lunch break!

In Dunedin today...

Sri Lanka v Afghanistan

Sri Lanka chasing 232 after a good effort by the minnows...Not making it easy for the former world champs to chase either. ^_^

:mellow: In Melbourne, Mega Clash at the MCG.

South Africa v India....India simply too strong.

:)

Clash of the border today...

And it's suddenly an important match...

England v Scotland at Hagley Oval.

A must win for England and Scotland know it...They'll just know their big brothers south of the border are wounded.

Disappointingly one-sided game between India and South Africa today. India now looking far stronger than just a few weeks ago.

:mellow: Well England decided to show up and bat first in Christchurch.

Making 303/8

Scotland simply unable to overhaul the total fast running out of wickets and balls

150/7...so far. :(

All wrapped up in Christchurch

Scotland all out for 184.

Just wondering if they won the toss it would've been different.

Still at least England can walk away with some little pride.

caught the first hour or so before going to sleep and fully expected to wake up to a victory. Didn't let us down. Sounded like a professional but unexciting job against limited opposition. Onto Sri Lanka next...

Considering cricket in Scotland is such a minor sport, can't imagine many people know we have a cricket team, i think our boys are doing us proud down under :)

Yeah, fair point. Cricket on BBC Radio with bagpipes playing in the background is a strange, strange thing.

Good to get on the board at last, but the performances of all the Associate nations so far shows how stupid the decision to reduce the tournament to 10 teams for 2019 in England really is.

It is just soooo bloody long a tournament as is...They could've compressed it using the four time zones, but didn't. 12 teams with two pools of six could work . 2019 only has GMT so really can't be helped.

Another thing is the weather...it's turning into autumn and cyclone season bringing the heavy late summer ran as the Gabba found out a few days ago. They started this tournament two weeks too late!

IMHO, this WC doesn't have the same magical feel of 1992's...I still think Ireland is a one trick only at this tournament. At the moment all I can see is Australia, NZ, India, Sri Lanka, South Africa(at a stretch) being of anything worth it for now.

Yet again just the one match...

Canberra

West Indies v Zimbabwe

A steady start so far.

Could've got a match played in NZ as well...This is the reason why the WC drags on....

Here's the ridiculousness of playing first tier nations against minnows.

Sri Lanka 331/1...Bangladesh unable to overhaul the total all out for 240 at the MCG tonight.

Confirming how these days all of Scotland's premier national sports teams are rubbish
