this is an unpredictable world cup and therefore a good world cup in my opinion. I couldn't care less if england lost all their matches so long as they were all nail biters

really solid win from the bangers. the bowling in the death from most teams has been pretty poor

agreed. highlight of an otherwise dull tournament so far. hopefully once the quarters get going it will be more entertaining. looking forward to the nz vs. sri lanka match tonight. we may have a chance of knocking them over.

keeping them to 265 is a solid effort but i still just don't rate the NZ batsmen

NZ have a quality batting line up, but with two of their main bowlers out of commision it wasn't much of a match. Look forward to great things from NZ later on in the tournament when their team is at full stength

yeah, I feel our batting is more of a strength than our bowlers. guptill, mccullum, ryder, styris, taylor are all class on their day and can be devastating. our bowling stocks aren't strong though.

no team has been great this tournament.

I would say that SA have been the most consistent team this tournament but they lost to england and have the chokers label on them.

It's anyone's tournament

i wasn't aware of India's collapses late in innings but I would still have them as my favourites. wouldn't be surprised to see Sri Lanka or SA win it though

basically reached my expectations for this World Cup. if only Tait, Johnson and Lee could stop bowling wides down the leg side and Krezja could actually get a wicket and our middle order could score

so so awesome.

we're the most unconventional team in world cricket by an long way (most of our team is made up of all rounders), plus taking in 3 spinners, even on a sub-continent pitch is risky, opening with double spin is crazy...but sometimes, it all just works. amazing game. doubted oram for a while, but man he had a blinder.
