In keeping up the pace with this magnificent tournament, an Australian collapse would have been the icing on an already very tasty looking cake.
Which is why what Hauritz and Lee did was wrong, plain wrong. They came in the way of a collapse against the world’s most collapsible team. Causing and demonstrating collapses is Pakistan’s thing. When they fall short of collapsing, the viewer feels robbed. Like we all were today. A one run victory would have made everything so spicy. Imagine the tension a little bit away if the Indians had to make that target in about 28 overs.
All the Indians would say how it’s all because India were the number 1 team in ODI’s. Everyone in Pakistan would say it’s only because we love playing India in the finals. Every Australian would hate the Poms. Don’t ask me why, why do we all dislike their cricket. West Indies would probably have caused the upset that they have so threatened to cause till then. South Africans would laugh at Australia, saying no one chokes better than us.
Ah Pakistan, I know you’re moving away to a world where you play better cricket. No collapses for us to see then?
We have the most interesting Champion’s trophy going on in years and I’m having to hop one flight from another.
The only match I caught till now properly was the India-Pak and what a match. That was one hell of a classic.
England has shocked everyone, themselves included. How were they the first team to reach the semi’s? Are we living in a parallel universe where England plays decent one-day cricket. Have they got aliens playing for them? Or just the Irish?
Pakistan seem to be winning everything while giving free hits wrapped in wrapping paper.
Australia seem to have a rather mediocre team and still are just one point from a semi’s place.
India seemed to have the match against Pakistan in the bag when they decided to give a return gift for all the free hits.
Sri Lanka blew hot and I loved them for it. And then they blew so cold I couldn’t believe they were the same team.
New Zealand thought they could make the Group B more interesting by beating the Lankans and promptly did so. And injured Jesse in the process.
The West Indies are brilliant. That’s all. Please don’t look at their batting. They probably have the most exciting pace attack next to Pakistan. And they don’t give too many free hits either. Except to Mitchell.
And South Africa.. what have you done? Did I hear it correctly? No semi-finals? Again? When it was your time. Everyone said so. And I believed it this time.
I really hope I’m able to catch the semis and the final. It’s going to be one hell of a finish as long as the weather keeps true. Come on SA, please ensure that now.
Everyone should take a minute out of their lives.
Kemar Roach just bowled what has to be the ball of the tournament.
Shane Watson just stood looking dumbfounded.
I couldn’t help but let out a scream. The joy at seeing that in-swinging yorker was unbelievable.
I wanted a picture of Shane Watson after the dismissal, but nothing’s come up as yet.
Ultimate. A fast bowler shattering the stumps first ball.
That’s all, I got nothing to add to that. Just leave it hanging :p
Edit: They didn’t. Dammit. If only the West Indies played England.
Sri Lanka just seem to have suffered a massive defeat at the hands of Pakistan. Wow, that wasn’t too expected was it. I really had no expectations, having completely forgotten there were actually warm ups today.
So do you think that’s serious or just Sri Lanka playing around lowering the expectations around them.
Among others, the West Indies were beaten to pulp by the Saffas. Much more along expected lines. If only Gayle was around to teach a lesson chasing 388. Err wait, 388 would have have been beyond Gayle too.
New Zealand somehow lost to the Warriors. My money is on them beating SA in their first match and causing this huge ass upset. That would make Group B great fun.
Oh no, no warm up matches for England! Getting thrashed by Australia was probably a warm up enough for crashing out of this tournament. I predict no upsets for you England sorry.
England? Aha, you expected the West Indies didn’t you?
Well, I like the West Indies, and though Bangladesh is better than the current West Indies side, I would much rather make fun of the English.
Presuambly, the Poms are going to have the distinction of the first 7-0 defeat across Odi’s. About time they set some records. If it hadn’t been for that shortened series in India, it would have been two 7 nils in nine months. And you think they don’t care about records.
If Bangladesh had been playing Australia, I would be willing to bet my house that they wouldn’t have lost a series 7-0. Wait, I don’t own a house. Atlease I’m safe that way. I think the only time I fear for odi’s is when England is playing them. They are just so pissing off god damn boring. But well, the ICC probably thinks they are jolly good. Bloody fools.
Who in this English team do you really want to watch?
Broad? I would kill myself if I had to ( but wasn’t he the new Flintoff?)
