    No idea about Angola and Iran, but this is a ridiculous group. I demand Portugal & Australia be swapped...
    lol if only, to be fair though Mexico are a pretty good side...
    not to mention digging up the demons of the past if we have to play Iran...

    Same Iran that lost 3-0 to QPR last year?!?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "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

    No, more like the Iran which beat Bosina (5-2), Costa Rica (3-2) and drew with the Croats (2-2).

    Why exactly?

    Portugal >>>>>>>>> Australia.
