Cricket World Cup

South Africa choking, a bit like New Zealand do when it comes to rugby. What is it with these sporting goliaths?

Sri Lanka will be on course to do the same against England this weekend then...

NZ all but wrapped that one up.

On England's current form, I'm not sure I'd class them the Goliath to Sri Lanka's David!

Typical..
I ( foolishly with hindsight ) selected my fantasy world cup side based on a SA victory. I now have 3 players who are out, and not enough substitutions left to replace them :sad:

New Zealand always get to the semi-finals then choke themselves.

If we can beat Sri Lanka (unlikely - as I think they and India are the best teams left) - we can beat New Zealand and even the cup itself

SA and Australia already out means the field is down to the subcontinent teams, and England and NZ.

Logic wouldn't give us a chance - but I think we can do it!

SPOILER!! FFS!
If you don't want to find out the results, how about not opening threads entitled "Cricket World Cup"?

England have done well to post that score, but Sri Lanka are used to this sort of wicket and conditions, they'll have a tough time defending it. I wouldn't bet either way though.
 
Dynamic from Sri Lanka eh?

Loads of fuss surrounding the macho antics of NZ - they are riding for a fall now... India and Pakistan to go hammer and tongs at each other, leaving Sri Lanka a pummelled target in the Final.

Agh! Dammit - *spoiler*

Sri Lanka did the business yesterday. This India v Pakistan match is something I would like to be present at - to see the fervour. Even to be in a town centre must be dramatically exciting.
Last night's reportage from The Guardian gives an inkling of the anticipation...

May the best team win, and be delivered to the feet of the Sri Lankans - for another fierce one - the Final. :smile:

mental start from India - I don't want to spoil it for those who will be watching the highlights later, but this looks like a good 'un!
