I blame Omar and him not keeping this thread alive

Yeah, the super8s round was way too long. I got bored. You could tell the four teams that were going to go through after a couple of matches. They didn't need to play everyone.

I got up a 6am to watch the end of the final, saw Jaysuria bat (damn he is good), but that was a really stuffed up ending. Don't they have flood lights in Bermuda? If they do they why didn't they use them? If they don't then I'm sure the ICC could have bought them some.
The World Cup title belongs to Football.You should add cricket in the head title to avoid confusions

South African papers are now pointing to the fact that Bob Woolmer was the coach of South Africa at the time of the Hansie Cronje saga and that he was apparantly busy writing a book, of which all records are now missing. And so the mystery continuous.

I've updated the scores I'll do the bonus points once the last game is over.

If you want to change your predictions to future games you can, but if you change your long term predictions (Group winners, and round qualifiers) you will get less bonus points.

wow Ulrich, thanks for the info on the icelandic papers. In this dark moment for Cricket, after the murder of the coach, the defeat to Ireland and the retirement of Inzamam there is only one slight relief for true Pakistani supporters:
 
SRI LANKA BEAT INDIA!
 
And barring a Bermuda victory over Bangaldesh, India are out in the first round too.
 
Oh, its going to be fun at uni on monday.

The Queen is not amused, nor is the whole cricketing and sporting world.
Here is one of the latest articles...
http://www.itv.com/news/dbe013e7dddc2e127e71f9a5265a6bc6.html

We all remember Hanse Cronje and his matchfixing...and the tragedy that occured around him...

I'm really shocked !!!
Even the Iceandic papers reported this morning about the circumstances  of the death of this Pakastanian Coach.
 
Cricket, a sport of the gentlemen, shocked by cheating and killing.I think, even the Queen is not amused !!

I guess whoever killed him had never heard the saying "its just a game"
 
but truly a tragic thing to happen and like Eondt said it will be remembered for years for the wrong reason.

Woolmers death has been front page news here ever since it happened. It was quite a shock when I woke up this morning to hear the news that it's been confirmed as murder. I just hope they find and prosecute the culpritsAngry
I think this world cup will be remembered in years to come for all the wrong reasonsCry
