Default What's with all the flat tracks?

I've always heard that batting is Australia is difficult compared to Asian wickets, then why have most tracks in this WC have been batsman's paradise? I think the spin factor might even make batting a bit harder for some teams in the subcontinent, these wickets hardly spin!. It seems that if you can play to 35th over with 3-4 wickets down, 300, maybe 320+ is always on the cards. Chasing 300+ is never easy, so the team batting first always seems to have upper hand.

Apart from Boult/Southee and Dale Steyn, no bowler has really been able to swing the ball much in this WC, even with new ball. While it has been great watching some of the batting, its nice to have a more even contest.

Ball swings in NZ, Ball bounces in OZ. India picked 22 wickets with short pitched balls.

Well, you've heard wrong.

Australia is one giant concrete slab. Clarke and Hussey are home track bullies who average 60 there and 40 everywhere else, neutralizing even Steyn and skipping to doubles and triples in the process.

And need I get started on the recent Indian tour where anybody could go at 4.75 rpo like the game was in fast forward?

It's one of the reasons for Australia's abysmal recent tours to India, UAE and England, among other places.

This is an ICC held event. Not bilateral affair. Naturally, the pitches will be batsmen friendly. You don't wanna watch a CWC game finished in 40 overs -do you?

About Clarke and Hussey being HTB -Rubbish.

No of course not, but every game is just becoming very predictable as most seem to just be following the same pattern.

4 fielder, 2 new ball rule also having a major role on the big scores and disparity between strong, medium and weaker sides.
