    That is an excellent start, man. Currently 57 off of 6 overs with no wickets lost. :cool:

    Zimbabwe has fast become one of my favourite teams.

    Well an expected win.

    Bowling issues need addressing, Anderson and Broad probably need to change their style a little. Mascarenhas and Schofield did the brilliant job of slowing the innings down, Flintoff did a good bowling job but I think it maybe a good idea to bring Jeremy Snape in or even give Darren Maddy a bowl. The better we make use of the slower bowlers the more likely we can restrict the Aussies and more sides to lower scores.

    Yeah. Take that! :p

    Only lost two wickets, too. A real good smashing ... unfortunately, though, Zimbabwe is knocked out because of the result.

    India beat Pakistan 3-0 in a bowl out after the match was tied. First time I've ever seen a bowl out. Was great fun!

    Yes it was interesting seeing a bowl-out, but surely Pakistan should have been able to hit the wickets at least once?

    Oh and poor Kenya getting thrashed by Sri Lanka, a huge whopping.

    I can't believe the bowlers deviate from their normal run-up often in bowl-offs. Surely that will throw them off their normal timing?

    Done by Sri Lanka yesterday, and a reasonably comfortable 10 run win over India today.

    Goooo Black Caps...

    ...and indeed they have. South Africa come out on top.



    Australia had an excellent game again. Brett Lee collected a hat-trick and Hayden and Gilchrist (again) had a nice opening partnership.

    Kiwis 153/8 after 20 overs against the South Africans. It's 1:30 am here so I'll see if the bowlers can do their bit when I wake up.

    Fingers crossed...
