funny
Chris, from Australia, is still marvelling at his own wit: "Maybe im stuck in IPL mode but... good to see an Irishman included in England's four overseas players"

Eoin Morgan comes in with England really in a sticky situation against his old team.
End of over 6 (3 runs) England 32/3 (RR: 5.33)

Lumb, WKer, Pieterson and Morgan. That's it? I thought there was more overseas players in that team?

Is Morgan that good? He is better than anybody and everybody in the English team? When did this transpose? He is the only one scoring runs of any significance. I wonder could he be this good had he stayed with the Irish?

Eng 72/4 in 14 overs. Good chance for the Irish to win. What the hell is England doing?
Trying to promote Ireland? Atleast they are from the same country! I hate to see that
UK has three national teams. and all the players can be transferred from one team to another.

They collect players from SA, WI, IR, Scot. Fokir!

Oh great now If England gets eliminated, and if we get eliminated, maybe we'll end up in the same group with the English and another Top 8 team in 2012 T20 worldcup.

This is the worst Worldcup ever!!! This is why I hate WI...whenever you play in WI, rain will always visit you...tournament shouldnt be held at WI

Cricinfo-
It's really bucketing down now, and the covers are coming out... And Andy Flower is thumping his desk in frustration as the players run off the field. It'll be an anxious England dressing room at the moment.
Well well well... Will Duckworth/Lewis come in to play once again? We still have half an hour's grace before we start losing overs, and the rain is already starting to ease.

Well, it's actually better. Coz England doesn't get eliminated, then we're destined to be grouped with two top 8 teams. But now if we get eliminated along with England, then we have a chance of having Ireland in our group in 2012's WC. Though that's hardly a good news, given our records in WC against Ireland. :mad:

CI- What a shame, it's raining heavily again and the players are coming off as the covers come on. Ireland needed 27 in 5 on D/L, but we've only had three and a bit overs so far

unless we go to second round or two other test teams get eliminated we dont have a chance to get ireland or a qualifier.

currently this how groupings are done

seed 1 seed 8 seed9
seed 2 seed 7 qualifier 1
seed 3 seed 6 qualiferl 2
seed 4 seed 5 qualifier 3

now remember only TEST PLAYING TEAMS are seeded. even if ireland or afghanistan becomes runners up they will not be seeded unless they get test status. they will have to play qulifiers again

so currently we have nine test playing teams. so if BD fails to go to second round and all other eight test teams go to second round BD becomes ninth.

again let BD qualifies and also another 7 test teams. so only pak or aus dont qualify. so either pak or aus is now 9th. now depending on results of second round we may finish 1st to 8th. but if we finish 8th we again play 1st and 9th which are two test teams.

but if we finish 2nd-7th we will have a chance to play a qualifier.

the only way we can finish 7th without not progressing to second round is if teo other test teams dont qualify. as for example england (guess beaten by ireland yesterday)and sa (beaten by afghans) dont qualify. so only 6 test teems qualify and they will be ranked 1-6.

then bd england and sa will be 7th 8th 9th depending on points, .

i think its look likes we will be again we will be in a tough group.

NB. bd finished 7th in the 1st t20 WC. so they had india (2nd) and the ireland (qualifier 1) in the second WC
