    To be fair, even the worst posting here is of a higher standard than some of the garbage you get on PC. It's one of the reasons I moved here.

    Would be horrible to hear that all the good members are leaving CW just as I've arrived. Where else am I supposed to talk about cricket with knowledgeable people who have far more viewing experience/insightful views than I do?

    I agree, mate. I spent a year looking for a decent cricket forum that wasn't solely populated by immature fanboys who knew little about the game and who just wanted to talk about how great their favorite team/player was. This forum is, by a wide margin, the best that I found. I'll be sticking around.

    well said. I agree
    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

    BBC - Adam Mountford: Chittagong chaos and CMJ airlines

    Suddenly, the skills I learnt on that course are needed as we all desperately try to stick together and find some safe ground, but this is harder said than done as we become further engulfed - and like being in a rolling maul during a rugby match we seem to lose control of our movements.
    In the melee, various attempts are made to take items from us, with another mobile phone being stolen. But even worse, the two female members of our group are subjected to some very inappropriate behaviour by some members of the crowd.
    As we desperately try to find safety, a group of armed officers begin a charge and hit random members of the crowd with sticks. It is one thing to see this from a distance as we had at the Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore a couple of weeks ago, but it is quite another to see it close-up.
    The situation becomes frankly terrifying as we are forced to hold our bags in front of us for protection and scream out so we do not get hit. As the crowd disperses we manage to find a relatively safe place in the middle of the road and beg some army officers to stay with us. To be fair, they are extremely helpful and even manage to call our driver to explain exactly how to come and rescue us.

    Hmm...

    As for Tendulkar200, anyone who says that SL, Pakistan and Aus are "weak teams" in this WC is frankly a cricketing nonentity in terms of basic knowledge of the game.

    And guys I think we should stop arguing, read through the thread again, it sounds like a ****ing kiddie playground in here. DF can post whatever he wants, regardless of how high it scores on the ******** index. He's right in that regard. We should grow up, it's up to us whether we're offended by it or not.

    One of the most epic matches of the world cup so far, but i feel BD should have won it more easy. At one stage BD were 150-3 before that run out happened. I think there were two run outs in the BD innings.
    Anyway great fightback in the end after that horrible West Indies game.
