    Well, thats what I thought, but then I looked into ICC Ranking as of 26th April, I saw SriLanka Ranked 6th, England 7th and WI 8th. May be they are using some other raking I dont know of.

    Anyways, I dont really care, I personally think that SL, WI are capable of beating any team on their day and I am sure they will make it to the group stage.

    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!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

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

    The defending champions have to qualify...
    Such a shame that West Indies cricket has been so pathetic since the 2004 CT.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Hope Lara can get something out of your boys in the next couple of years. TBH, I think having a good WI team at the next World Cup is very important.

    I don't see Lara getting much more from them than a better leader would. Stop-gap measures annoy me. The WICB needs some greater male fortitude.

    well not to me, i think that the fact that they are trying to expand the tournament & limit it to the top 8 nations in the world is pretty good idea.

    well at least in the future if the schedule it at a better time of the year (mainly the year before World Cups since they are 2 between each tournament) competition should be good even if its one month.
