    Mildly disappointing thus far. Has the air of a glorified friendly about it. Perhaps I was expecting too much.

    Argies been comfortably the better team tho.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Bloody Ivory Coast. Have to concede two early goals in every match they play, as a rule. Get up.

    Argentina/Holland game isn't particularly special, but there's been some interesting pieces of play. Argentina look a bit more likely to score.

    It's been a stroll for both sides - just sparring really.
