    Yeah, the England/Australia rivalry almost runs along the same sort of lines as a local derby, even though it'd be difficult for the countries to be further apart. In the end we're pretty similar and India (****ing BCCI!) is the real enemy. Particularly on CricketWeb.

    I actually don't think Ind-Pak take pleasure when they lose against some of the overseas teams tbh. Particularly Aus and England (probably to a lesser extent). In the past you were expected to if you were an Indian or Pakistani but over the last few years that has changed a lot.

    Meh, they're still as unskilled in unhelpful conditions as the lot that you brought in 2008. It is an understatement that they haven't proved that they can be effective on pitches offering little in ODI cricket.

    Aye! I adore Pakistani cricket, and was rooting for them hardcore last night. There is a mutual admiration there as the teams play their cricket very differently, and i think Indians admire their flair and unpredictability, and Pakistan probably admire India's skillful batting line-up. Most Pakistani's will be hoping we wipe the floor with the 4th rate, insipid poms, TBH

    Na, as the Aussies will probably finish 1 or 2 in the table, he'll be hoping you guys are at 3 or 4 rather than India. It is every teams dream to play a minnow in the quarter finals!

    Cant make my mind up on who to support tbh, ill probably cheer for the team losing from the start (hate them both atm |edit: well not really hate, more of jealousy )..

    I can see this being a high scoring match.
    Batting: India > England
    Bowling: England > India
    However Batting >> Bowling for both teams
