    How exactly? Most of the exciting star names would be in the other group - KP, Flintoff, McGrath, Symonds, Ponting, Lara, Gayle, Tendulkar, Dhoni.and so on.

    The hypothetical group B has a few Pakistan players and a couple of individuals from the rest (Murali and Bond). That's it.

    No. You would have four teams with an about equal chance of progressing.

    The other group has a minnow in England, two hot-and-cold teams in India and Windies, and Australia who'll always qualify.

    We're on about the most entertaining group to watch, not the most competitive.

    Regardless for all anyone knows either group could be cut and dried after 2 games each, since there are two qualifiers any of the 8 could make it anyway. We don't know which games will be exciting either, the only known elements are the players which are decided more exciting in that hypothetical Group A.

    You don't consider Jayasuriya, McCullum, Boucher, Gibbs, Nel, Kemp or Ntini exciting to watch?

    The games being competitive doesn't make them entertaining?

    The point is we don't know which is going to most competitive til they're played out anyway.

    Both groups once those sides play very well will be equally entertaining, you really cant seperate - (spelling check).

    On the same token we don't know which players will be exciting to watch until the games are played either. McGrath, Tendulkar, Lara, and co. might just play rubbish.

    The whole arguments pretty stupid really since whatever you or I consider entertaining is totally subjective.

    Especially midget sex. I don't know how the heck you get off to that **** Scaly.

    Fair enough but I wasn't comparing them to players in Group A, I was replying to your comment that Group B only has "a few Pakistan players and a couple of individuals from the rest (Murali and Bond). That's it."

    You've got to have a cut-off point somewhere otherwise you would say every international cricketer was exciting. Mine is just a bit higher because it's OD cricket, McGrath v Tendulkar? Nice. Nel v McCullum... meh.

    The difference there is that Tendulkar is an opening batsman, McCullum bats #7 or #8 for NZ!!! you can't really compare that match-up.
