    As I mentioned elsewhere - good stuff from Kev, nice short'n'sharp round-up, 1 or 2 things occurred to me reading those that hadn't while I was watching (which I haven't been able to do as much as I'd have liked due to several things).

    To the point stuff there and that pretty much wraps up all the content about the Group stages of the WC.

    The WC would have been so much better if both Pakistan and India could have qualified for the Super 8's (its an another thing that both these teams don't deserve to qualify for the Super 8's) and last but certainly not the least if Bob Woolmer won't have died in such tragic circumstances.

    Nice but brief.

    I wouldn't have minded reading a little bit more

    I think if India and Pakistan would have made it to the Super 8's the interest in the WC would have been a lot higher then its atm, since both Pakistan and India have a huge fan following.

    Can you believe it - people're blaming the ICC format for India and Pak's exit! "OOh, they weren't given enough chances! OOoooh, they just lost twice! Ooooh....they needed time to get used to the conditions!" First people compain that the minnows may not be competitive enough...then they complain they're too competitive!

    What a bunch of whiners. The ICC may be responsible for some ridiculous faux-pas, but this wasn't one: Ind and Pak were crap teams that did deserve to be kicked out. I do hope this puts into action some policy reforms in their respective local FC circuits and selection and management policies.

    India most certainly would have been more competitive than Ireland will be.

    I thoroughly would have expected Pakistan to get belted in every game they played though, so I'll agree with you on that part..

    Hey, don't let the facts get in the way of a good yarn. Next thing you know, you'll be labelled a whinger
