Where are all dem haterz now?

Howsie

A thread for players who were deemed unworthy of World Cup selection but are putting in good to excellent performances so far and thus proving the haterz wrong.

Thirimanne.. although he's been incredibly lucky tbf. Don't expect him to be as successful going forward.

Thisara Perera IMO. Been handy when most reckoned he'd completely shunt it.

Jeevan Mendis, on the other hand... Hope he makes a big ton and takes 5-fer to win the Final and make basically everyone taste harder than anyone's ever tasted before :p

Was hoping Younis would ton up against Zimbabwe and gun the rest of the tournament bringing Pakistan to the finals (where they would lose to India ofc). Would be the single biggest collective taste in the history of cricket.

Thisara has predictably flopped with the ball tbf, not too hard though I guess. Would be a good effort for Jeevan to defy ICC regulations and make a comeback to the squad for the final we won't make though.

We all love a self indulgent thread/post, we're all guilty of it (except Burgey because he's never been right about anyone). We should not begrudge Howsie his opportunity.

Didn't realise Jeevan had gone home tbh. That utterly nondescript that I missed news of his injury completely.

He's injured, replace in the squad with Upul Tharanga.
