    Will be disappointing to see one of the Netherlands or Spain out early.

    Very comfortable group for Australia. The good thing about the matches is that we will be able to tinker will our XI a bit in preparation for the later stages of the tournament. Minnows Spain and Chile should be cannon fodder, but it is a World Cup and anything can happen. Netherlands, have a strong Australian influence, will be our trickiest opponent, but I would be surprised if we don't win all 3 games.

    Yeah I think Spain are a real chance to go out. They're the best side in the group but they're not miles superior to Holland so it's very possible that Holland finish above Spain. Chile are a very underrated side and could easily upset Spain also.

    Yeah, Chile are quite underrated (not amongst people who actually watch football mind you, just by the cretins who work as television pundits). I'm not sure who they have a greater chance of upsetting, but it wouldn't come as a surprise to me if one of Spain or Holland don't make it through.

    Yeah, with Chile being the dark horse, it wouldn't surprise me if they qualify with us, meaning each of the previous finalists will bow out.

    I know it's unfortunate for Spain and The Netherlands, but that's football.

    Can you educate me on who made the T20 World Cup groups please? I can see Netherlands there but never heard of Spain and Chile with regards to cricket.
    Anyways umm...anyone think Australia can get through to the second round?

    On the fact that it is Spain and they have won the last 3 major tournaments I would guess.....

    One can certainly have a few doubts about if Spain are likely winners or not but I would be amazed if they did not get out the group.

    That makes them better, it doesn't make them 'miles' better. This before the fact that Spain have clearly regressed in the past couple of years.

    I would be surprised if Spain didn't get out of the group as well; I said as much. They are the best side in the group. That's quite a lot different to saying they are certainties to get out though, because they are clearly not certainties.
