    Default Cricket Twenty 20 World Cup Thread

    I thought it would be fun to start a discussion thread for the Cricket Twenty 20 World Cup.

    Post up your thoughts...

    I disagree...

    In the warmups, SA batted second and beat Australia by 8 wickets!

    It was a fantastic game!

    You could feel the atmosphere through the TV screen!

    When Gayle got 117, and WI 205, I didn't think we stood a chance. (The highest total ever beaten at the Wanderers in a 20/20 game by the side batting second was 173.)

    But Gibbs did his thing once again (same guy, same grounds as in that historical match where SA beat Aus's 434 total). Gibbs seems destined to beat records at the Wanderers!

    I think I'm going to try and get tickets for a match at Centurion (I live a few kms from the grounds.)

    20/20 is just an awesome form of the game. I can't believe no-one thought of it earlier.

    thank goodness.

    Its really wierd seeing that teams score same runs ~200 whether is it 20 overs or 50 over 1 day match or 5 days test match.

    Really bad.


    Hope this 20-20 lasts longer than Singapore Super 8s and Hong Kong Sixes!

    Aussies got beaten again - damn. Now we have to beat the English to stay in the game... Ponting got voted best player/captain again that's something positive for the week anyway.

    It seems to be becoming a phenomenon these days - strong sides underestimating the weaker ones. In the ODI WC, Bangladesh beat SA in the same way...

    I heard Bangladesh just got Chris Gayle out for a duck. Maybe you were right about Bangladesh. Well, we'll know in about another two hours...

    Well, well, well...

    Bangladesh just knocked the West Indies out of the world cup and qualified for round 2!

    This also means a likely SA vs Aus match in the next knockout round...

    lol



    Seriously, though, I think there is some real batting talent out there in many of the teams...

    The game between NZ and India yesterday was awesome. Both sides have some serious talent. Sri Lanka doesn't understand the terms "dot ball" or "single." SA can chase down whatever is set, no matter how high. Australia can bat right down to the last man.

    Hey, what did you think about the bowl-out between Pakistan and India. I believe Pakistan has the best bowling side on Earth at the moment, and when it came down to the bowl-out, I took it for granted that Pakistan would win. It was a HUGE surprise that they didn't hit the stumps even once...
