    That was sooo friggin depressing. I'm going to slit my wrists.

    Now not even the Windies can keep me interested in this tournament

    Well....it's back to work everyday until the Ashes starts.

    Hate to say I told you so!

    Pick a team based on everything bar T20 experience and performance and you're bound to lose!

    I still don't think the team was way out. Hodge for Clarke and a different bowler in for Bracken, perhaps.

    Now if only there was a way for England to be eliminated... just let them prepare for the so precious urn and let those who really want it play the World Cup.

    And losing on a wide... goodness gracious.

    Australian team was good
    To be honest they just didn't 've luck
    against Westindies it was Gyle's day ( don't think he'll win any more game, but i do hope that he does)
    & today they tried everything
    well i'll say 1 stupid thing here, but it's truth
    NEVER MAKE FUN OF OTHERS, I SAW SOME AUSTRALIANS LAUGH AT ENGLAND, BUT THEY QUALIFIED & AUSTRALIA ARE OUT, NOW ENGLAND FANS 'LL SHOUT AT AUSTRALIANs
    (i'm not against Australia at all, love them)

    Didn't watch the game today, so i missed seeing mendis bowl

    I haven't been paying much attention to this so I am not sure how the grouping works, looked on cricinfo but couldn't find what I was looking for in the 20/20 WC page.
    So hoping someone can clear this up for me.

    Do points from this stage carry onto the next round?
    Also have the groups already been decided for the next stage? in terms of A1,B2, C2 etc?
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    I do morally object to Australian sporting teams, but it'd still be cool to meet real-life international cricket stars (and Nathan Hauritz).
    Or something.

    It wasn't the batting which cost Australia, it's the crappy bowling. 160 is a respectible and defendible score if you have a good bowling unit.

    Johnson was way down on pace (by about 7-9kph) don't know whether that's intentional given the success of sub-fast bowling in T20, but he's best when bowing fast. It's that simple. He doesn't move the ball enough to bowl fast-medium as a LH to RH who want to hit you out of the ground.

    Lee was smashed as he almost always is in England, he isn't a good enough bowler to bowl in English conditions IMHO. When the track is fast and bouncy, he's excellent but in England he's often expensive.

    I know I'm not the biggest fan of his, but Siddle had to be a much better option than both Watson and Bracken. The fact Watson can bat means nothing to me that's just papering over the cracks. Hodge, as many agree, should have been in the XI let alone the squad.

    Hauritz is in the team for what reason? He got 1 ball to turn and that was pitched so far wide of off stump that it didn't matter if it turned 10 feet.

    I don't think being knocked out will have a huge effect on the outcome of the Ashes except maybe on Ricky Ponting. He is a pretty poor captain and has was lucky he had a plethora of talent to work with at the begin of his reign. Now with a few class players and a lot of mediocre, he's going to need to step it up and become inventive a la Michael Vaughan and Stephen Fleming.
    All-Time Test XI:
    Gavaskar, Boycott, Tendulkar, G.Pollock, V.Richards, Sobers, Gilchrist (wk), Warne (c), Waqar/Wasim, Lillee, Ambrose.

    Wow what a a win by Sri Lankans..

    It is good to see aussies go early for a change..the bright side is now they will be fresh an full of practice for Ashes..

    I don't see Pakistan qualifying as well..I don't think they deserve it it specially with thier fielding..

    Fair play to the Sri Lankans. Bowled really well, probably let Aus get 20-30 more runs than they should have. Dissappointing bowling effort from Aus, bar Hauritz who looked pretty good.

    this is where somebody kicks up a stink about the group stages carrying too much of a rick for the 'good' teamas getting knocked out early and the crap ones sneaking thought of a single lucky result. Then demanding the format gets changed.

    Unreal, can't believe this. Fair play to the Aussie fans though, they pretty much all called this before the Cup.

    This makes up for all the crap certain Australians gave English fans on this forum over the Dutch defeat!
