Cricket World Cup


kenya and zimbabwe qualified for the super sixes
would you believe it?
after all england's decision not to play in zimbabwe and new zealand's decision not to play in kenya played a major role in who qualified for the super sixes
i feel extremely sorry for the fact that south africa could not go through
are they the unluckiest team in the world ?
remember the 1999 world cup!
also unfortunate was the exit of west indies(cheated by the weather)
england(who did not played in zimbabwe) but look at the performance against australia
and another point it was said that 1.24 billion watched the match between india and pakistan
but i don't believe it(my calculation are all coming wrong)
do you?
we here have the worst tv channel broadcasting world cup
(set max)
they don't even have commentators who speak good english
hoping for a good super sixes
i think the final this time round will be between australia and new zealand

Don't be too hard on England. So they didn't beat Aus - well *nobody* can beat Aus at the moment (tho' I think - personal opinon - they should have played Zim. and would have beaten them and qualified). Aus will win the World Cup this time, but by the time the next one comes around someone else will be on top.

That's how it goes. Remember WI were unbeatable 10 yrs ago.

Might even be England next time

Well personally I think that England should have qualified for the super sixes.I was hoping for a good super sixes but so far it has been totally boring.And I can't understand why England should not play in Zimbabwe.Obviously the security situation there is not so bad.The "moral ground" applies to politicians not to players.
Australia did went to Zimbabwe.
And well i do think Australia will go ahead and win the world cup.
But maybe one bad day for them(in the semis) and who know the final maybe between New Zealand and India.
For me I will keep my finger crossed.
