    No Asians ?

    If Windies beat India
    South Africa beat Pakistan
    Australia beat India

    that means no Asians in the Semi Finals.... played in Asia and the fans like ODI's more

    which would mean the semis would look like

    New Zealand vs Australia
    West Indies vs South Africa

    YAY!!

    all 3 results are not bad to bet on...
    1) Windies have had the wood over India
    2) RSA Full strength should beat a Pak without 3 of their best players arguably
    3) 50-50 for me, Aussies play well back against the walls though

    Don't know about the whole "Yay!" thing, but...

    It'd be a big suprise, would have gotten some good odds on that at the start of the series.

    The whole YAY!! thing seems a bit over the top to me, Asian batsman are generally the most entertaining and stylish to watch so I'd like to see atleast India go through to the semifinals. Paksitan or South Africa doesn't really bother me, both are good sides.

    Tbh, I'd much prefer for the West Indies to play Pakistan if they reach the semi-final round.

    Do you realized that in last 25 years, 3 Asian countries have won the world cup and they have reached the finals of another 2, only to lose to an alltime great team ?

    a bit surprising if Pakistan hadn't lost Akhtar and Asif i would have definately backed them to qualify.

    when none of the South American teams made it to the Socoor WC final, but then after i gave it a thought i realized that yeah offcourse there is more talent and more passion about the soccor in SOuth america, they still lack the facilities+ Disciplineand the infrastructure that the European teams have and thats why they are ahead in fianl and not the teams that are known for their passions+ skill for the game.


    I think same might just happen with cricket....Soth Asian Countries have alot more passion + Skills(individual's talents) which can win you at times but in the long run teams with better facilites, discipline and better infrastructure will have better chance of winning tournaments.
