    As a WI fan, I don't mind, because the Windies seem to play better when teams under-rate them....

    3) England are through if they beat the Windies, but if they lose they will likely go out to Bangladesh or possibly Ireland. If they lose, they will be relying on the Netherlands to see them through.

    4) South Africa, if they lose to India, could be in serious danger as their match against Bangladesh will become effectively knockout. They'd also have the Irish to negotiate.

    5) Ireland themselves are out unless they can beat South Africa and see off the Dutch. Even then they will need England to lose.

    6) Bangladesh will need to beat the Netherlands, and then they will go through if either they beat SA or England lose to the West Indies.
    Is that right? If India, England and Bangladesh all win their remaining games and SA lose to the Banglas and beat the Irish I make them out on 6 points.

    India 9
    SA 8
    Bangladesh 8
    England 7
    Windies 6

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Ah, yes, re-reading that I didn't take England's point from the tie into account properly. Probably best to ignore me for now. I'll have another go in a few matches..
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I'm on the brink of cheering for SA for the WC tbh. I've never been that emotionally connected with the Indian ODI side(unlike my love for the test side) and watching SA bowl is an absolute treat plus I have money on South Africa and some of the Indian players seem to have a **** attitude re the WC.

    Will probably change if Sreesanth plays, mind.

    Just want to watch the best cricket possible really and with India it seems to be a case of incredibly disproportionate ability between bat and ball which leads to the game panning out to be Get hit for a million runs and score a million runs. I reckon I'd enjoy a final between anyone among SA/Pak/Oz more than one involving India. There I said it.

    Sree winning a WC medal would surely be reason for celebration tbf.

    India most certainly is not winning though. SA has a murderous top-order too and actually has a bowling attack.

    Haha, we'll see how "murderous" they are in the knockout games. It looks like they'll be facing Pakistan in the quarters, a much better side under pressure. We'll wait and see if South Africa can walk the walk when it matters. Given their history, I will not be waiting with bated breath.

    This is what they said back in 83'. And we all know what happen. I'm surprised by the lack of belief people can show when it comes down to sports. Such is the beauty of it that you can expect the unexpected. We've seen it throughout history. Cricket is not played on paper, no sport is. And this is why self-belief, and passion are two of the most important characteristics to achieve the impossible. And this sort of mentality transfers over in other facets of life. There've been many times when I've been down and out against the opposition (in whatever form it has come), but you have to persevere, believe, and be positive to overcome adversity. And when I watch cricket (or any sport for that matter), and when I cheer for India, I cheer for them in the same way.

    As for the bolded part, if I had said the same about England or some other team, 100 people + Sanz would jump on my back for being "patronising and condescending".
