We may still meet and share a drink and the steak that you promised.

In other news, the Chief of Army Staff congratulated the team for having beaten the Pukis.

However we know that any alleged shinnanigans are redundant when England are involved - any other side and they'd be a case. This defeat was an embarresment. Selecting Anderson to bowl the penultamate over was just about the most idiotic decision ever made on grass; the fella had been bashed round the park all day - giving 130k, long hops to a tail ender is THE ONLY DELIVER THEY COULD EVER SCORE A BOUNDARY FROM! Anderson duly obliged!
Pathetic Nasser must go. His playing contributions are mediocre but his woeful decision making has resulted in English capitulations at ever opportunity.

After their horrendous stance in support of Mugabe's regime; the threat of cancelling this summer's tour and that ignorant putz of a police chief I'm delighted to see them humiliated.
They've been so arrogant over their assertion that the final should be between themselves and Australia! I just love the irony where their 'hosting' in such a fubar corner of the globe has resulted in Kenya stealing their berth because NZ quite rightly didn't fancy the trip to Nairobi.
I remember the last World Cup in England when the boks deliberately threw their last match against Zimbabwe to put England out - Cronje was probably on another bung.
Now lets hope Zimbabwe are outed by Pakistan - however methinks the rain will conspire an unlikely draw. But I'll still be laughing as I continue to enjoy Sachen's sublime batting.

Rain in the Pakistan - Zimbabwe game thats no good for england.
And I do think Nassers' position is in trouble, but who will replace him its a shame england has not been able to pass on the captaincy properly for some time now.

England are out. Lol now there's an irony for
you. 'Rain stops play' is synonomous with
Congrats Zimbabwe - thanks to your tyrannical
regime ya get to promote 'Mugabeism' for a
while longer. Anyone know if they're more
matches staged for Harare etc? These patsies
could go all the way.

Due to more ICC incompetance - in the super 6s
the team's carry through points with them; that
is they are awarded points if they have
previously played and beaten a fellow
'super-sixer. So Kenya 'start' this phase with
max points and do not even have to win
another game to qualify for the semis!?!?!?!
The only way they can be stopped is if NZ win
two of their matches against the Aussies, India
What a shocking state of affairs! This World
Cup will be long remembered all right...
P.S. This ain't sour grapes; England
should've beaten the aussies when they had
the chance, they didn't so paid the price. You
gotta win matches to win tournaments with
the exceptions of Kenya and Zim it seems.
