Cricket World Cup Thread

Meanwhile Sri Lanka's Chaminda Vaas claimed an extra ordinary slice of history on Friday, taking a hat-trick with the first three balls of the World Cup match against Bangladesh before adding a fourth victim in the same over.

Great thread Agnostic, as usual!
Sorry, I jumped the gun by speaking about opening a thread on the main forum then I saw this and quickly rushed back to apologise...I didn't want to hijack your thread. Next time I will be more careful.
Well, Sri lanka had a good time today didn't they? Vaas didn't even know he had broken the record until he was told by a reporter.
What do you all think about
2. The choice of the venue?
3. Boycotting Zimbabwe?

Zimbabwe, screw 'em. the regime that has destroyed the breadbasket of the African continent should be destroyed. A pity for the Zim cricketers though.

England won the Ashes series. Australia are eliminated after testing positive for drugs.
I'm delighted England aren't legitamising Mugabe's mob. Now if the ICC give all four points to Zimbabwe this repressive regime could go all the way; butcher a vibrant democratic nation and win the Cricket World Cup by default.
So SA are going to cancel their tour to England next year? Big deal we'll get someone else - perhaps the Indian's. I could meet up with Ag at Lords and 'ave a ball.
That SA 'police-chief' holdin up the death threat and holloring 'it's nothin' is a disgrace. I bet ten years ago he was rollin over black children in SOWETO shouting the very same thing. Pillock.

Do you realise that Mugabe is Chief of the Zimbabwe cricket board? The ICC had no business scheduling matches in Zimbabwe in the first place.
And as Gospel said, if SA dont go to Blighty this summer, sod 'em. We guys would be pleased as punch to take their place.
I know cricket and politics shouldnt mix, but there are times when you have to draw the line. Blacks hating whites is as bad as whites hating blacks. Nasser Hussain is right. The safety of the players is paramount. If not 2003 in Africa, the English team will do its bit in 2007 in the West Indies.
