I placed a wager that Tendulkar would not score a century, and get treated to a Chinese lunch tomorrow.:D
What with 30+ ODI centuries, the bloke must have got sick going past the 3-figure mark. More than 20,000 runs in both versions of the game is an achievement by itself. And he's not even 30 years old......:D
Yes, an India vs Oz final would be nice.
:) :cool: ;)

I would say tendulkar was the player of the tournament so far, probably, althought there hasnt been a big stand out player yet really?

New Zealand v Australia tomorow, not overly concerned about the result. Since I think they wil meet again in this tournament - I would say they are the 2nd best side in the tournament ahead of India - the India v New Zealand game should be interesting.

Im sounding far too much like an arogant aussie in my posts now

I'll be interested to see how the Aussies perform tomorrow. Didn't they lose an ODI series to N Zealand last year? :confused:

Tendulkar 11th just behind Shoib Akhtar??? Hmmmm?

Yea zxb if I recall I think they did win that series just before the ashes I think they also drew a 3 test match series too. They certainly gave us a few cricketing lessons anyway so the upcoming grudge matches take on even more importance for the Aussies.

hey the best score I could imagine Australia getting was 140 and they have made that now with 8 overs to spare thankslargely to bichel again. So Australias chances have improved slightly still looks like a win for the darn kiwis.

Will the Kiwis upset the Roo applecart?
27/2 in 5.2 overs, both wickets to McGrath.
India would rather play Oz than NZ if we come to the final.;)

I'm an Aussie who's going to N.Z in a month.
Sitting here now watching the cricket.
I've been cheering for Both Australia & N.Z. every match.
Now the showdown & I can't help it but I'm hoping the Kiwi's win.

This is the first time I've watched Australia play & cheered for the other side.

Whats happening to me?
Am I a traitor?

Tenacious --- how the phuc do ya beat these
Aussies... they looked dead and buried at 81-7 but still managed to get to 208!?!

The Kiwis are gonna have to pace
themselves and not play loose shots until the
ball goes off.

I'm on the fence for this one. However I would
very much prefer to see the Kiwis reach the
semis ahead of Kenya who have had a free ride
courtesy of the ICC.

puzzledude you cant call yourself an aussie and a new zealand supporter the two just dont mix.

Someones out YAY - 4 for something!

How can you support them I just dont understand? Im sure traveller can prescribe a few cold ones or something.

Gospel surely the kiwis are assured a place in the semis? who else is still in contention?

Agonistic I would have thought that India would of fancied there chances against NZ more than Australia.

Quote from the radio

pulled of his hip to long leg for a single, 84 - 4



just realised radio is probably not the easiest way to get in to cricket.

We need to get fleming out soon.


--------edit--------

vincents out 84 for 5, maybe fleming will run out of partners, still want to see him go soon.

FLEMINGS OUT! 102 - 6 and Australia are on top now.

When Australia were at 80-6 I thought it was all over - its not as if this is a must win game for them but this has been another remarkable turn around. Still prefer to play the aussies in the finals Ag?

Without either of the waugh brothers, shane warne or gilespie it is good to see this 'next generation' team continuing the good form.

104/7 now.
Ted,
There is no point playing any team other than the best in the world, is there? Besides, the Kiwis are unpredictable.

104 - 8 now lee 3 wkts in 4 balls

do you know what i thinks going to happen the top four will finish like so -

1) Australia
2) India
3) Kenya
4) New Zealand

So India will probably play keny in the semis and Australia play Nz again. I think INdia are guarentted second at any rate and will avoid australia in the semis.
