    Will you ignore the world cup until the quarter finals?

    Hello

    When you have two groups with 4 of the better test teams in each and 4 teams from each group are allowed to qualify for the quarter finals it seems obvious which teams will get through. So why not watch matches only after the quarter finals get underway on the 23rd? Whatever happens before is just pointless isn't it?

    The early matches are a warm up and allows big teams to experiment with composition of the team. Also allows out of form players to spend time in the middle under less pressure.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Agree with you OP,it is a waste to watch matches before the QF's.
    I mean why watch a 2hr movie when you can just watch the last 5 minutes, everything else is just a waste isn't it.
    Hell you could just read a synopsis on imdb or wikipedia and save 2hrs of your life.

    Yes. Will ignore the WC except for a few scorecard checks on cricinfo until the QF. Thankfully I did not watch the NZ Pak match
    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

    I can see the similarities between cricket matches and movies especially since more and more matches are being scripted nowadays.

    They are not. It annoys me no end when these random accusations are thrown around.

    We've seen some very intresting match-ups even if there is a slight air of inevitability about the quarter-finalists.

    That said if Zimbabwe turn over Sri Lanka and the Lankans also come unglued against NZ there could yet be life in Group A and England losing to Bangladesh or the Windies to Ireland might put the cat amongst the pigeons in B too.

    Unlikely but then so was Ireland chasing down 327 v England.

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

    I will ignore the world cup if India doesn't make it past quarter finals.

    I just hope like hell that the NZ bus doesn't encounter traffic issues on the way to the quarterfinal venue.
