    Biggest Minnow Bashers at the World Cup

    Just a poll on who do you think is the biggest minnow basher of the World Cup.

    Sri Lanka, South Africa, Australia have already joined the minnow Bashers Club so far - others still to join the club... Any prediction on who should get the Biggest minnow basher award. For me South africa have just pipped SL to take the lead by their annihilation of Netherlands.... But further minnow bashing is still to come....

    Its one thing to bash the minnows, but its totally another to bash them to near extinction...

    Australia may hold the record but i dont think they really go after the complete demolition of minnows as much as the South Africans

    South Africa and Sri Lanka seem to be the teams that tear minnows apart the most.

    South Africa and Sri Lanka have players that can tear minnows apart...Holland just had the luck of playing them both
    P.S. We beat England at Lord's

    Early days but it has to be SA so far - how many would thye have scored in 50 overs? 500? But they do have previous - Kirsten got the highest WC score against the UAE and remember Donald's bouncer in that match (people say Zarawani was a twit not wearing the helmet but remember bouncers were banned in ODIs at that time so he wouldn't have been expecting AD to bowl one. And the guy couldn't bat anyway so it was just bullying). Pity all the minnow bashing won't help them a week today...
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

    I think NZ could inflict some serious damage on Canada. I think Kenya will be tricky for both England and New Zealand.

    I think when it comes to minnow bashing Sri Lankans are second to none, their record of 398-4 v/s Kenya in 96 WC (which was a record of most runs in an odi innings for a long time), and they also hold the current record of most runs in an Odi innings (443-5 v/s Netherlands) so thats ample proof that they just love the minnows.
