2007 Cricket World Cup

Recommended Posts

Quite safe...The whole team is protected, and India, being a democracy, has a little bit more decorum, and the fact that it is the MAJOR host for the next CWC in 2011.

Who'd have predicted the super eight line up as it is now though?

Sri Lanka

Australia

South Africa

New Zealand

England

Ireland

Bangladesh

West Indies.

Eat your hat Ricky Ponting!

England and probably a few of the others haven't made it through yet... Don't jump the gun!

It's not looking too bad for England now, which is more than can be said for the footballers.

I couldn't even watch the England - Israel match. Useless, the lot of them. I'm presuming it turned out to be a 0 - 0.... If so, or even worse, then we can kiss qualification goodbye...

Ah well...

It finished 0-0, but I ain't giving up yet.

Well, at least we are through to the Super Eights at Cricket. The football can wait... I just hope that everybody makes a big fuss of Bob Wolmer in this World Cup, and I don't mean in the ordinary sense of the word. I mean by way of quality sport journalists....

Puh! I Doubt it.

England hasn't exactly got the best draw.

It's sad to see that Bob Woolmer's death have cast an appaling shadow over what would've been a magnificent event.

So instead of what most people thought would be a clash between India and Pakistan, it will instead be Ireland against Bangladesh.

But only after they very nearly chucked it away and Lasith Malinga became the first bowler in international cricket to take four wickets in four balls.

Today, New Zealand have bowled the West Indies out for just 177 and looked very impressive in doing so.

Very good performance from the Kiwis, but they were helped by an insane Windies team selection.

So?

Victory is victory, just because the WI fronted up a poor team, doesn't mean NZ is easy going.

Ireland performed well, as we knew they would after we played them last summer. They had us in trouble at one stage but 266 was always likely to be enough on that pitch. We know we need to step up a gear for the bigger tests to come, but there's no reason why we can't make the semi-finals ourselves.
