Dont worry mate. Pravda is next best to what you said. Where else could you find Englishmen, an Ozzie who is physically in America but mentally in Queensland(???), and an Indian talking about cricket?
We may still meet and share a drink and the steak that you promised. :cool:

Ag Stewarts 39 or 40 and he is arguably englands best batsman.

Alec Stewart is one in a million, ted. But there are a lot of youngsters who play for Kent and Yorkshire who ought to be donning England colours. Its 10:30 pm here and I'm off to bed, guys. Got to leave for work at 6 am tomorrow.

Congragulating the Indian team for winning the World Cup cricket match against Pakistan, Finance Minister Jaswant Singh announced that the prize money earned by them individually or as a team would be exempt from income tax.
In other news, the Chief of Army Staff congratulated the team for having beaten the Pukis.

I'm bleedin disgusted with that anglo-Oz match. If ever there was an example of 'match-fixing' this is surely a sound contender. How can you lose with 135-8?!?!

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.

NZ won by 5 wickets over Canada. Very heavy scoring in the Holland/Namibia match though. Very impressive. ;)

No. They've just lost abother 3 wickets. Very quickly. They might get 280 if they pull their finger out.

268/9 in 50 overs. :confused:

It's a challenging enough total, but S Africa are supposed to be the second best team in the world. :cool: :)

216/6. 6 overs remaining. Not looking quite so promising now, though not impossible. :(

229/6. 5 Overs remaining. Rain has stopped play. Using the Rain rules will only allow a tie. A tie will not keep S Afric in the competition. :( Jolly bad luck that.

Roflmfao..... excellent.. the boks are OUT!

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.

I am very anoyed now turns out the local 'australian' theme pub was showing the england - australia game.

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.

Oops - Zim/Pak match drawn due to rain and
England are out. Lol now there's an irony for
you. 'Rain stops play' is synonomous with
County Cricket.

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.

Lol.. this tournament is a farce!

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
and Zim!?!?!

What a shocking state of affairs! This World
Cup will be long remembered all right...

..as fubar!

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.
