    IMO I would have considered this tournament worthwhile if they played each other twice, instead of playing each other just the once.

    People talk about this promoting cricket in Holland, but how? The crowd that will attending will ex-pats, tourists, or any Dutch who are curious, and besides the Dutch football season began so PSV Eindhoven's arch rivals Ajax Amerstdam will be getting a lot of press, and the Olympics and cycling season aren't over.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    And SET MAX is there to ruin it for us... It'd work better if they just concentrate on cricket. They've seemingly tried to tone down the crap, but the quality is still not up to the mark.

    A meaningless practise tournament IMO.

    They were showing a clipping on tv where Indian Sports broadcaster Charu Sharma went about the streets of Holland with a bat and a ball asking people which sport it is used to play.

    Very few people, not surprisingly, could guess it was cricket.

    Holland has a cricket history and it could have developed into an average cricket nation by now.

    The stadium thuogh is full of Asian fans, not surprisingly either.

    No balls in this tournament will be called by third umpires! Its an experiment by the ICC.. why do it in an international match? Funny they thuoght of asking third umpires to call no balls in the first place.

    It's happening in the CT as well I believe.

    Wow Vandemataram you are back after a seriously long time dude

    Hey what's wrong with the coverage? It has been great for me after watching the Asia Cup with Ary's commentary team. I like Slats and there are Sanjay , Ramiz, Barry ,etc,. Pretty good say i'd say compared to the Asia Cup coverage.

    The stadium is packed with expats

    He's not.

    It's Nikhil wanting to change his name every 2 or 3 months.

    Don't see the point personally.

    No problem with the actual play-by-play commentary. The pre and post match shows are the problem...

    And while we're at it, Ramiz Raja IMO is the most biased commentator ever...
