    World Cup quality thread

    ATG
    Eng-Ire
    Eng-Ind

    Good
    Pak-Sri
    Ned-Eng
    Pak-Can
    Ire-Ban
    Wi-Ban

    Average
    Ind-Ban
    Wi-Sa
    Aus-Nz

    Meh
    Ken-NZ
    Aus-Zim
    Zim-Can
    Pak-Ken
    Sl-Can
    Wi-Ned
    Sa-Ned
    NZ-Zim
    Sl-Ken

    To many meh's for my liking but still a decent number of good games Wi-Ban gets in the good range because the result though not a shock but still the total ownage was a surprise

    The WC has been farily good so far IMO.Far,FAR better than the last one.It can be argued that i'm enjoying it more since Pakistan is doing so well,but the other games have been relativley entertaining too.

    The WestIndies-Bangaldesh game doesn't belong in the good game category IMO,since it was completley one sided,but we're only 2 weeks into the tournament and there have already been some pretty good games.Plus Group B is looking mouthwatering,so i'd say the quality till now has been very good.And it will only get better once we look forward to some potentially explosive knockout matchups.

    Think the India-Eng game is better than merely good. One for the ages for mine.

    A lot of the mismatches were scheduled early on in the tournament so the standard of the group matches should be more competitive from here on.

    It was on the higher end of good I reckon too much bat dominating the ball and it did not seem like its going to be a close game till the 43rd over just fall short off the ATG category offcourse all this is subjective ranking.

    Think what he means is Australia vs Pakistan, Sri Lanka and NZ vs Pakistan, Sri Lanka. Those will be pretty interesting to be honest.

    Ind vs. Eng's see-saw finish puts it into ATG for mine. Yes sure it was bat dominating ball, but so many matches have that.

    The drama was excellent.

    Been OK so far, need to see more. Would prefer not to see complete roads like Bangalore TBH. Yet the two games in Bangalore have been top-notch.

    West Indies-Bangladesh was arguably the worst game of the entire tournament. I don't think it should be there in the "good" category.

    I think you're being a little generous there; India/Bang was very meh for me, there was never any semblance of a contest & Windies/Bang was quite average too for pretty much the same reasons. Impressive batting from India and bowling from the Windies, but the games themselves weren't up to much.

    Unless England are playing the contests have been sadly lacking on the whole.

    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    for some reason I am a sucker for games where one team gets completley Ko'ed by an evenly matched opposition unless ofcourse Pakistan is getting the ass kicking thats why I enjoyed the windies-bangla game.

    India-Bangla was nothing special but alteast Bangla did try to stay in the contest till the 40 over though realistically they were never in it and needed a KOB style speccial to make a game off it.
