World Cup: World Cup format designed keeping top teams in mind - Ratnakar Shetty | Cricket News | ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 | ESPN Cricinfo
I understand the game needs to make money and all, but still..
Just wonder how the Indian/Pakistani fans feel? Do you think you'll still feel you've won it fair and square even though you've had a little nudge up over the rest. The fact that the other top 4 get a free pass to the quarters isn't lost on me either, but it does feel like this W.C is geared more towards revenue rather than the best team.
Sorry if it seems like a dig at the Sub-Continental teams.
