    say what you want... you will all be watching it no doubt

    i like it... it'll let us know where Australia is compared to teams like India and Pakistan who have been really good... Esp. India... i think its gonna be India vs Oz in the Champs trophy final and there will be a massive crowd...the Indians like their ODI more than tests

    the return of the pidge!!!

    Actually I'd disagree there.

    The Commonwealth games are great for lesser nations to compete on a global stage in some less mainstream sports.

    They're also played in a great sense of good fun.

    Yeah, while the Champion Trophy was only recently made in the hope of making some money when not alot of cricket is played whereas the Commonwealth Games have a pretty good sense of tradition to them.

    Whatever you guys think its a taster for the World Cup and we will probably all be glued to our TVs!
    Plus its the only competition Australia haven't won yet and this time its on Indian soil, not somewhere where they have be very successful. Watching the Aussies (angry from their Ashes defeat last year) playing at their absolute best will be an attraction even though the end result may be meaningless

    If the tournament final turns into a dress rehearsal for the World Cup final, i.e. Australia vs. Pakistan, I might start taking an interest.

    The thread asks a question to which the answer is yes, but then the poll reverses it - I nearly made an error in voting!
    I have unfortunately made the cardinal sin and voted the wrong way without reading the Poll question.

    I'm not sure what I have said before, but I think it will be important especially given the World Cup next year.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Really looking forward to it, itís international cricket. And sure are participation will not be for very long (you would think) but you definitely know the likes of India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and South Africa will be taking this competition very seriously.

    In my opinion, this isn't the right time to have this tournament. The World Cup is too close for this tournament to take place. The hype and money invested into this tournament shouldve been given to the World Cup to make the World Cup even better. This tournament should've taken place after the World Cup.
