    I can support this from the quarters onwards (it means we'd have nine total live match discussion threads), but I definitely don't think the group matches all deserve separate threads, especially given the unwritten law that all match threads must be stuck. You'd have to go to Page 2 before hitting a thread that wasn't stuck.

    I'm open to either way of doing it, but if we did go for a separate thread for each match, only the match-day threads could be sticked meaning only two threads sticked at any one time plus the threads we have sticked currently, Would that work?

    I personally think a thread for the groups then individual match threads for all knockout games. If we have a 'quarters' thread, people will undoubtedly want to discuss team selection etc for their own QF and this will get a bit confusing when other games are going on.

    In summary, I vote for whatever causes EWS the most work

    To summarize, what we have then is the following for the group stage. Is that correct?

    • Group A - Discussion
    • Group B - Discussion


    with a separate thread for each days matches below due to 2 group games on the same day:

    • 20th February


    2nd Match, Group A - Kenya v New Zealand
    3rd Match, Group A - Sri Lanka v Canada

    • 6th March


    21st Match, Group B - England v South Africa
    22nd Match, Group B - India v Ireland

    • 11th March


    27th Match, Group B - Ireland v West Indies
    28th Match, Group B - Bangladesh v England

    • 13th March


    30th Match, Group A - Canada v New Zealand
    31st Match, Group A - Australia v Kenya

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    ^ it would surely create some difficulty but then it depends on number of new zealand and sri lankan fans around here which i do not think is a big number enought o cause any trouble

    or is it?

    Think we should have seperate threads for matches involving the test teams atleast.

    Perhaps we can have a common thread for the other games divided by the groups.

    Or could have a seperate thread for dicussion about Minnow games and then have a seperate thread for each of the games involving a test team.
