On the contrary, I firmly believe the boys will step up for these games.

That Zimbabwe game, although it may not be the walkover we would have expected months back, will be a vastly different story given that it will be played on the Subcontinent this time round. I rekon we can give the Windies a run for their money, although SL I give us very little to no chance to overcome. That said, 2 wins out of 3 will be enough, right? :up:

this will be a great tournamnet for the tigers, and a great opportunity to make amends for indiscretions in zimbabwe. It's payback time!

Lets hope this half-successful African tour becomes a wake-up call for the Tigers.. showing them the other side of the line. I hope they are already aware of the danger of being amature in attitude.

as i hv stated in other threads before, i certainly believe we hv a fair shot at it.
i mean, we SHOULD be able to beat Zimbabwe and WI and SL? well, i can certainly fancy my luck against WI in India. also taking heart from the fact that we beat SL early this year, we know we can beat them again. hard, very hard but possible. all it would take for our players to play one decent good cricket to give them a fight.

and IF we do end up qualifying, lets say as Q2, the prospect is great, playing against Australia, India and England. oh just mouthwatering.

there is nothing more in this world id luv more than to beat India in their home soil, a sweet revenge for the treatment they r giving us at the moment. but then again, im far stretching my wishfull thinkings.

well, dream is all we have and hope is all we live by.
