And namibia all out for 45, (McGrath 7-15 meaningless figures really) it was an astonishing display and lee was able to try for the speed record - dont think he got close though.

Australia, West Indies, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, and England.
Hope our boys do well on the Ist of March.
They'll be lynched if they dont. Just to show how serious Indians are about cricket, Parliament was adjourned for the India-England match.

Its a tough combination for England to get in, dizzying.
The Canuks are hanging in there stubbornly trying to go the 50 overs!

Pakistan v India: can Inzimam regain some semblance of form?
OZ v Poms: can Englands attack make any dent?
WI v SLanka: can either attack outdo the other seeing batsmen dominate here!
SA v SLanka: Biiiig pressure on the hosts here:rolleyes:
WI v Kenya: can the wily kenyan bowlers confuse the calypso kings?

England will only be able to dent the ozzies if we give the 12th man a dragunov sniper rifle, as I wanted to do in the India match.
WI v SL I'll watch with great interest. Should be a fairly close match.
SA v SL, will also be intersting.
The final match should be a sound beating for Kenya.
Pakistan v Zimbabwe will be quite close too.

1. the team with the most wins in Group matches
2. teams equal on both points and wins will be decided by the winner of the group game between them. If more than two teams have equal points and wins, the team winning the most number of matches played between those teams will be placed higher
3. if still equal, the team with the higher net run rate will go forward
4. if still equal, the team with the higher number of wickets taken per balls bowled in Group matches in which results were achieved, will go forward
5. in the highly unlikely event that none of these criteria succeed in separating teams, lots would be drawn
ok so further to what i said earlier
If England loses to Australia, Pakistan beats Zimbabwe but not India and Zimbabwe beats Holland (as they probably will now) then they all finish on 12 points, with 3 wins each, then england goes through.

And if England bts Australia and Pakistan wins both game then England qualify.
that means England should support INDIA v Pakistan and PAKISTAN v Zimbabwe. My head hurts now.
Now the super six

The top three sides in each of the two groups will progress to the Super Six stage. Those six teams will carry forward points gained from Group matches, in the following way:
- four points per win against other qualifiers, or two points for a tie or no result
- one point for each win against a non-qualifying country, or a half point in the event of a tie or no result
Meaning Australia will carry quite an advantage in to the next stage.
These allocations have been revised from the 1999 World Cup, where teams carried forward two points from wins against other qualifiers, but no points from matches against non-qualifiers. The new system was adopted after consultation with all member Boards, to ensure that the Super Six stage is as open and competitive as possible. By taking more points through from the Group stage, the prospect of
