#1
Well the main warm-ups started today.

The tournament starts soon.

In this thread I felt we could discuss the competition as in progresses.

First of all. Predictions.

Mine are:

Semi Finals:
South Africa
India/Australia
New Zealand
Sri Lanka

Final: South Africa vs one of the above.

PS:you make talk about any country.

I enjoyed watching some of the warm up games today.

I think the idea of the 'super over' after the tied match between Holland and Ireland was really innovative.

And Bangladesh performed very well against the Aussies, despite losing.

Yeah the super over was used in the IPL. A good way to decide a tie with a contest with bat and ball.

Have to say there is a cracking atmosphere at the Oval this evening..you could be forgiven for thinking it was being played in the sub-continent.
Pakistan are currently 77-5 and to say Afridi doesn't look happy is an understatement!

Got the choice of two games at the moment, this one or the England match..i'm enjoying this World Cup already and it's only the warm-up matches!
I'm a horrid bint.....apparently!

For India and Pakistan it is not a warm up. India are 106 without loss after 12 overs. Should be easy now.

England looking good against Windies and need 5 off 33.

India and England win comfortably. England thanks to Luke Wright and Ravi Bopara who got knocked off the runs in 14 and a bit overs. And India to Rohit Sharma and Gambhir. Great Performance by both teams. India still need to sort out their death bowling though.

I loved Luke Wright's 3 sixes in a row. Now that was box office!

I see that bad boy Andrew Symonds has been caught drinking in the Last Chance saloon and sent home. Looks like a sad end to a rollercaster career.

On the subject of bad boys, I see that Dermot is part of the BBC team covering the tournament.

Just think how the Bears' Twenty20 performances could benefit from his captaincy just now

Now there's an overseas player for 2010 who ould add some zoomph to our one day performances.

Im sorry for him. Very good cricketer who is throwing a lot away.

As a Birmingham-born player, he would increase our local quota.

A sympathetic article here from David Fulton who was his captain at Kent:

Looks like KP is out of this afternoon's opener with a recurrence of his achilles injury.

I know some of you will disagree but can i just say...yipee!!
Made my day...i don't like him and we played better against the Windies without him.

He doesn't appear to be in the best of form recently - he certainly didn't shine in the IPL, and has been out of sorts since losing the England captaincy.
Reply

He can say different but he's still smarting, not so much from losing the captaincy but from the fact that he thought he would get his own way with everything and that he was going to be the dog's b*?£$!?s as captain.

I'm sure you could be right Val but I'm not sure how the pain finds its way into his achilles tendon.
I'm not too bothered about whether or not he plays in World 20/20 but the thought of him going into the Ashes not fully fit does bother me. Like him or not (and I don't particularly care for him) he is undoubtedly our best Test batsman.
