Couldn't have been better said by myself.

"Obviously things like this come to the news everyday. We find cases of people filing cases against actors and people doing funny things. It gives them a platform to become famous overnight. You don't need to achieve anything to become famous," he said.

:(

Actually, we are not all like this...

India go 2-0 up. Just. Neither performance was more than 50% convincing though. :rockon:

The day that Australians, Englishmen, Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Sri Lankans, New Zealanders, South Africans, and West Indians get together, the world will be a better place.

Maybe we will even civilize the Portuguese.

:Party:

PS. There is only one Don in the world and all of us worship him as God; with a batting average of 99.94% most of us say he threw his wicket away to the devil.

There is only one Doctor of cricket in the world. He had a beard and nobody could get him out; worse, umpires were scared of giving him out.

Cricket has made people more friendly and more brotherly towards other peoples and never mind their religions or colours.

Play cricket and heal our injured world and have a gentleman who one billion Indian worship, a certain Adam Gilchrist, as coach.

God forgive your barbarian soul, Port.

I'm feeling sorry for this English side. They just aren't trying in the one dayers. All out for 111.

Get rid of Fletcher.

England nearly won! :woohoo: :rockon: :yip:

Mumbai, on the other hand hammered 0/5 in the first part of their second innings (but recovered and won anyway). :D

It was only the West Indies though. Call me a worthless blasphemer if you will, but he'll have to do it against tougher opposition to convince me that Sach is back. Still, good innings.:clap:

Another century, this time ofr Mumbai. The opposition is better this time. :Obmar:

But who cares, because England have vanquished Australia (naturally). The world is at rights once again. :rockon:

A year ago I was thinking that Pakistan could make a decent challenge for the World Cup. Now they've gone to South Africa and appear incredibly crap. Very strange. :Potstir:

I dont know. It is going to be an interesting World Cup.

The wickets will not suit the Roos or the Boks. I have a hunch that Matthew Hoggard will get plenty of wickets.:kowt:

Pak will be more at home playing in the West Indies where the bounce is low. So will India and Sri Lanka.

Anything is possible but I would bet on Dravid, Flintoff, Hoggard.

I dont rule out an English win.

You may think that I've had one over the eight, but it could happen.:s cool:

The quake, which occurred around 2100 GMT, was felt in Jamaica...

How do you play cricket during an earthquake?

That would be impressive considering he doesn't even play ODI games. :D

If you want to win the World Cup you've got to take him and leave Duncan Fletcher out.

Mate,

It is the Year of the Pig in China and the Chinese have built the stadiums. Hoggie should get wickets. Shoot your selectors if they dont take him.:D
