    3rd place play-off

    As far as I'm aware these have never been a part of the Cricket World Cup, but they're always a fixture in the football and rugby equivalents. Should there be one?

    Never. They're pointless and the teams involved don't want to play it. They suck.

    I've always thought so. Sadly NZ would have played in 6 of these games had they existed

    No to the 3rd place play-off. We've already had one Aus-NZ game this WC.

    Yeah, a silly concept and one that only tradition has sustained in Football. Cricket should avoid it like the plague.

    No. It goes for a long time the Cup as it is. Nothing any team or fans to get excited about anyway.

    Don't know what kind of motivation a team losing semi final would have to play a third place play off that no one gives a flying **** about. Absolutely unnecessary.

    Who would watch that, tickets to the match would have to be free and include drinks and food.

    Nah, I mean in football though it's empty it's actually often a very good game as all the tension is removed and teams go balls to the wall. Over 100 overs I couldn't see it being anything other than flat.

    Haha. Surely more people would watch and pay to see this then a random ODI match when the series is already decided.

    I'm against having the match, but I would watch the game still.
