rave down, hit the ground
Congratulations to SA and WI for topping this group! They appear to be the fav to play the final as well considering Pak's mercurial nature and SL relatively weak batting or NZ inconsistency .... Also Pak and SL batsmen could be subjected to the type of bowling Indians got so it will be interesting to see how they deal with that

Hard luck to the English fans, and well done to the Windies, regardless of the match situation.
That said, I couldn't help but having a smile on my face after reading the bitter bile spouting forth from this poster's keyboard:
Did the better team today win? Maybe not, but the word 'cheat' is certainly not applicable in this context IMO because no one was deceived.
Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

With that start from KP and Ravi England should have ended up on 180-190.. But their piss poor middle order limped to 150 and thanks to broad they crossed 160.
The D/L is not fair and England probably got the rough end of the stick. You cannot defend a small total in lesser number of overs which is a fair point. Giving the benefit of the doubt to the windies they would have chased down a total of 90 with comfort. So stop crying foul and accept England's defeat. As Upper cut said England were denied a contest but they did not outplay anyone.
Windies you ****ing rock!!!
I actually looked at the last couple of overs at the bank!
Well...England can look at it this way: they get a head start on their Ashes prep.
Windies to bring this home imo. Would love them to win another ICC tournie at Lords.
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
