    USA beats ZIM in warmup match

    Zimbabwe: 272/4 in 50 overs (Nasir Islam 3/48)
    USA: 273/6 in 49.4 overs (Steve Massiah 142 not out, Rohan Alexander 42, Nasir Islam 30 not out)

    Even though ZIM are an all time low, this shows a little optimism for USA having scored 200 plus runs twice will give them good confidence to face NZ, AUS is an uphill task for anyone. Goodluck team usa.

    Then your brain is even less functional than we thought.

    The USA have been well beaten by Bangladesh (who are crap) and have narrowly beaten the biggest disgrace to blacken the International arena of all time.

    Their group games are against Australia and New Zealand, the best two ODI sides in the World.

    There is more chance of Norway invading Sweden tomorrow morning.

    not that i disagree, but why is it that cricketweb still has NZ listed as rank #8? i don't think there is anyway they are still ranked 6th.

    Different ranking systems look for different things.

    The ICC's go off pretty much the last six months with a ridiculous degree of bias to recent form (gah, I'm getting like Arjun, bang one drum and bang it hard and don't stop banging) but CW's, however, place a lot more emphasis on sustained performances over a period of approximately three years (NZ currently 6th).

    What is so wrong going off recent form?

    New Zealand are playing pretty well at the moment, and that is backed up in the official rankings.

    And in other sports I'm 100% positive they go off recent performances.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    In a game like Cricket, recent form can be skewed by the fact that teams only face one or 2 teams in that time.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
