minor top order collapse. I think we stand a good chance of pulling off a victory here. :)

Congratulations England.
The Pukestanis are known to crack under pressure.
I'm off to the airport to receive the English side of the family. Too bad they like Beckham more than Collingwood. I'll be irregular in my posts for some time now.
Bye
Ag.
PS I'm practising the 'stiff upper lip.':cool:

The poms won it rather easilly in the end - I would have lost a fortune on the spread betting.

The fastest world cup century today and it was by a canadian against the windies thats a turn up for the books. (Davison 100 of 67 balls including eight 4s and six 6s. Wish I saw that one. )

The two games Im most looking forward to before the super six starts are India v Engalnd (Where I think England will probably win) and the grudge match between India and Pakistan.

You really that confident? All the recent ODI's we have played against India, we have lost. Only won 1 game out of 5 (1 game rained off). I don't have that much confidence about winning against India, especially with Michael Vaughans injury. I remember when we knocked up 325/5, then had the Indians reeling on 146/5, and still lost the match.

Zxb I dont pay much attention to any teams besides Australia but Ill still stick by my original choice - England, they will have to produce an exceptional performance though.

Did anyone see the catch to dismiss the canadian centurian it was absolutelly amazing.

Traveller,
The English side of the family would be scandalised to know that I am on speaking terms with chaps they prefer to call 'convicts.'

Cant understand why.;)

BTW,
This is the points table: How do you align the text?

Group A

Team Played Won Lost No Result Tied Points Run Rate
Australia 3 3 0 0 0 12 +2.34
England 4 3 1 0 0 12 +2.08
India 4 3 1 0 0 12 +1.19
Zimbabwe 3 2 1 0 0 8 +0.04
Pakistan 3 1 2 0 0 4 -0.13
Holland 3 0 3 0 0 0 -2.04
Namibia 4 0 4 0 0 0 -2.81



Group B
Team Played Won Lost No Result Tied Points Run Rate
Sri Lanka 3 3 0 0 0 12 +3.17
West Indies 4 2 1 1 0 10 +1.03
New Zealand 4 2 2 0 0 8 -0.09
South Africa 4 2 2 0 0 8 +2.15
Kenya 3 2 1 0 0 8 -1.32
Canada 4 1 3 0 0 4 -1.46
Bangladesh 4 0 3 1 0 2 -2.64


I have money on India and some on Australia and West Indies to cover any losses.

Talk about bizzare, Kenya at the top of the group B table points!???
Another convincing win by the Aussies, though. They look unstopable. Does anyone think the Poms can hand them their first defeat?

To put it absolutely bluntly, No. They are just too strong. We only beat them in the 5th test because they lost several of their top players (who are now back in the side of course), and even then we couldn't win against them in the Natwest series.

A class palyer Vaughn! Only batsman to shine in Oz this summer.
Unfortunately, I don't get any cricket coverage here. Have to wait till I go to the old dart for biz, to see it!
