    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    With 2 fifties and a five-for, and easily India's 4th bowler ahead of the sad show of Sreesanth/Chawla - is Yuvraj the all-rounder of the tournament at this point?

    None of the usual suspects - Kallis, Vettori, Shakib, Watto, Mathews - have done better than this in all around performance yet, though Afridi is the bowler to watch thus far.

    (Of course the all-rounder of the tournament isn't going to be the player of the tournament. But waterboy has bowled his way back in a way few expected..)

    It'll be really interesting to see what happens if Afridi has another blinder against NZ.

    Because if Pakistan were to say get knocked out in the quarters or semis, but Afridi was Godly up til that point, I wonder whether they'd give it to him?

    I doubt it, personally. The group matches are so much less consequential than the knockouts - if someone puts in numerous awesome performances in the knockout stages they'll definitely have the inside running IMO.

    Imran Tahir should take 20+ wickets but South Africa will be going home probably at the quarters when they face Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka or Australia. AB de Villiers should also score heavily up until said exit.

    Guys like Johnson, Malinga and Afridi are good bets as they are likely to go the distance.

    Depends on what he ends up with. Klusener got the award in 1999 despite South Africa not reaching the final, and Tendulkar got it in 2003 despite bombing in the final.

    I thought knock outs were either good looking girls or boxing results.

    atm seems like Afridi. Imran Tahir looks good too. Nothing special from the batsmen so far. Before the tournament I would have said Amla.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Whoever can reel off 2/3 good performances in the QF/SF/Final will be the player of the tournament.

    Of course if there is no one stand out performances during the Knock out, Then we can consider some one else. But we will see.
