    Holy shit. Maybe, just maybe, they're the real deal this time around. Still, only takes a bad semi performance and they're out... :pray:

    That was a great win for England. They are the favorites

    I think at the end, it was more about disrupting team Harmony and chemistry and shit for someone who hadn't played more than 5 Odis for England (ofcourse tabloids were toeing the line of him not being English enough and shite). But that was all hokum. How can you justify keeping out one of the most exciting prospects in recent times? He sounds a bit like a nob but the selectors thankfully weren't that stupid.

    I just caught up on the Windies - Pakistan score.. Hot damn that was totally lopsided. But then, it's always the question if Pakistan show up on any given day.

    Any win's a good win in this comp. Pakis are always dangerous competition. :nunchuck:

    Personally I preferred the pool system, but I guess if everyone plays everyone, you can't argue about who ends up making the finals.

    Hard to predict weather that far out but I just don't know why England should host the world cup when it fucking rains so much. There aren't even any reserve days and everyone's getting a point here and there.

    I think part of the problem is that Wimbledon starts next month so they needed to have at least half the WC already done, hence the June start. And as annoying as the weather is, England had to get its turn hosting the cup at some stage. But yeah, some less shitty weather would be nice.

    And right on cue - NZ and England washed out without a ball bowled. Damn you English weather!! :angry:

    If I was a betting man, I'd be thinking England v India final right now.

    Oh, and it's raining again. Who would've thought... :bang:

    A win is a win but I wish we had gotten a full game instead of a win by duckworth Lewis.

    I hope the rain doesn't affect many more matches. Without reserve days, it's a bummer if fans can't watch their teams in action.

    Man.. props to Bangladesh for chasing down 320 odd against West Indies with almost 9 overs and 7 wickets to spare.

    it got close in the end when Stokes went off on a hitting spree.. sort of.

    Time for the english media to raise the panic levels .. they're yet to play all of the teams in the top 4.

    Australia can only do so much good for paulski. Ash Barty's #1 so the cricket team might as well get wrecked.

    I still see England coming back here. They always do something unexpected. After Aussies inning, it looked it should have been an easy win and then blame 3 quick wickets.
