    I wouldn't call Afghanistan beating Bangladesh an upset tbh.

    Afgh-BD-Zim-Ire all pretty close to each other in quality in ODIs outside of Asia ATM.

    I definitely would call it an upset, just not as big an upset as BD beating Aus for instance. Just trying to get across that I think BD are gonna have a shocker of a time.

    I'm expecting BD to lose to Afgh tbh. They just don't have the right team for these conditions. And they always choke against minnows.

    Two guys so far have predicted South Africa to beat Australia in the final at MCG with close to 100,000 spectators.

    I guess its safe to say that this would be a blockbuster moment in cricketing history if it indeed happens.

    Victory in a knock out game is long due. But Proteas (arguably the most mentally fragile team in latter half of WC) beating Australia (who tend to thrive under pressure) in a world cup final at their own den in front of a massive crowd is too good to happen. Thats why it would be a blockbuster result if it does happen. And I would love to see that happen.

    I want to see SA get within 2 runs of victory with 1 wicket in hand and 1 over left, only to have ABDV get runout in a comical mixup with Morne Morkel leaving them both stranded at one end of the pitch.

    That would be perfect.

    RSA might as well quit World Cups if that happens.
