    Haha Jason. South Africa were heavily overrated as number one but anyone that has watched them over the past year would be able to attest to them being easily the number two side in the world. A semi-final loss to the best side doesn't change that.

    I don't think Martin Crowe needs a counseller, he's married to an ex-Miss Universe

    They lost to NZ very comfortably ...they lost to Bangladesh very comfortably ....they lost to Pakistan in the warm up....and SL would've beaten them if theyhad played them later in the Super 8 than first up....

    And SL has beaten NZ 3 times when they played in neutral grounds... (twice in West Indies and once in India at Champions Trophy ) . How then can NZ = SL. Load of BS .

    Even in NZ , they were lucky to get off with a 2-2 because it rained off the decider.

    Haha, because warmup matches are so relevant.

    And again, for the 5000th time, no-one said that South Africa had a good World Cup. We're all quite aware that they performed poorly in it - telling us all that and listing their losses won't change our opinions on the matter, because unlike you, our opinions aren't all based on one tournament or over-exaggerated factors like "current form."

    He did say on current form though, so I actually agree with him as well. Not everything is based on current form, because form is very fickle and can change at the drop of a hat. Genuine ability can't though.

    I don't know how anyone can argue that NZ is as good as SL. They drew 2-2 in NZ and then on the big stage SL won both games convincingly. They are clearly a better side.

    SA hasn't done anything special outside South Africa recently either. They are mostly home-track bullies like India. I would rate them about equal to SL and possibly worse. When will they meet head-to-head next?
