World Cup
I would suggest that any country that is unable to finish in the top three places of its regional qualifying tournament does not deserve to be involved in the finals tournament of the World Cup.
Regional qualifying is used in every other sport, as is a pre determined allocation of places for each region to ensure the finals competition fairly reflects the worldwide game.

Not enough countries play to a high enough level to justify regional qualifying,it would produce even more mis matches

Well we have been through it all before and its about as fair as a single rate taxation system. Cricket is unlike football, theres far too few countries that play it to a decent level.

The best method to help the associate countries and limit the the amount of teams playing in the world cup is to have the top 6 ranked teams automatically qualify and the others have a play off in a comoetition to decide the other 2

More games a day would have compacted the tournament.... One of the positives I felt was the inclusion of the associates. The other real positive was how much batsmen / teams have learnt from T20.... with perhaps the exception of England.

Anyway the final looks a good one!

Paul,

So you want to have a global qualifying competition, but exclude a "privileged few" from that.

Thought you were the one that wanted fairness and equality!

As for a "single rate tax system", you've being shown how its fair and progressive, with the greatest amount of tax paid by those who earn more, both in the net amount and the percentage of their income.

How is it fair to punish someone who has the ability to achieve a high income from their skills by forcing them to pay a disproportionately higher percentage of their income? High earners already pay more in income tax and national insurance, as well as paying more on 'spending taxes'.

No everybody has a chance to qualify. 

Its what we call a fair society where the strong help out the weak. Wayne Rooney can afford to pay a higher tax rate. He's still able to live a live in luxury. The rich will always have more than the poor even with paying a higher tax rate, so its fair.

What is fair is a society where everyone contributes in a proportionate and progressive manner something that a single tax rate achieves.

As our greatest ever peace time prime minister said, "the problem with socialists is they run out of other peoples money".

Even UKIP have changed their mind on flat rate taxation. If the wealthy pay less then we will have less revenue coming in, so no party will bring it in anyway.

We really need to look at ALL state expenditure, is it actually needed and also the entire 'tax code' to see if it is being carried out in the most effective way.

It's a fact that simpler tax systems with lower rates, actually provide a greater yield at less cost.

Dismantling the NHS will save a lot of money. Everybody should take ressponsibilty for their own health care just like in the USA  Wink

I am joking anyway, because I would be a hypocrite of I wasn't.

Perhaps there should be a special tax on multiple kitchens :-)

Kitchen tax, I like it! What about a bathroom tax as well?

A chair tax would be fairer. everyone would be entitled to one chair. For each additional chair a tax applies as it indicates how many people live in the house.

Thriller in Melbourne... ironically 50 overs wssnt neded....

Sadly very disapointing climax to a tournament that has once again been dragged out and has had too many one sided games. Yes some very bright moments. .. but we (a superb crowd and many millions on TV) have just watched a competition that poses a few questions about the direction and perhaps the future viability of the format.Sadly a very disapointing one sided final.... like many of the games this world cup.... but well done to Australia. Well done also to Micharl Clarke!

Australia were worthy winners of the tournament. Congratulations.

Congrats too to Richard Kettleborough on being picked to stand in the final. Who said England wouldn't be represented?

Yes indeed.... The best team won.... But despite any spin / eulogising, ultimately it was the final that the tournament deserved.
