20/20 World Cup
« on: June 02, 2009, 14:07:17 PM »
Watching bits and pieces of the warm up.

Are New Zealand not a decent price at 9/1 on Betfair?

India worthy favourites but plenty short given the variance in this form of cricket.

Thoughts?

Well for a start this aint cricket!! But any one of the top teams can win this, so 9/1 for the Kiwis is a pretty good bet

It"s not cricket the way I was taught it ... but at times that was pretty sterile.

I would have loved to have seen the West Indians of "84 and "88 play 20/20 ... might not have had to change much in their game to be unplayable.

I remember Viv Richards hitting 189 not out from 272 for 9 in a 50 over game ... some very unorthodox shots getting played ... great to watch.

Same for people like Robin Smith - shot a ball - great to watch.

the problem is they rely too much on mc cullum  for their batting, i do have to admit that their bowling is definately conjusive to this form of cricket

fancy south africa myself, definately have the batting line up to smash any team out of the park

England vs Holland ... now there is a hangover cure!

Just watched the highlights ... which were hilarious ... what were the odds?

England 100-0 after 11 overs ... OMG!

Pietersen and Flintoff injured in the IPL ...

Looking forward to buying the papers for an indepth look at Dutch cricket"s finest hour.

I sat watching it live thinking I can"t believe we are going to lose to Holland at cricket! Then we got back into it and Broad bowled a great last over, but fielded like a village player!! I haven"t read the papers yet and studied what is required to go through, but the fact that we lost and didn"t tie means we "re out if we don"t beat Pakistan ( I think) !

Pakistan looked very rusty ... in the warm up I watched.

Holland played some great shots ... looked like a good side ... given the base England set they should have made 200 ... game over ...
