I'll start it off.


I think, AB Deliviers is going to one of the best players of the WC, he is in such sublime form. Such a allrounder of a batsman, can score every where.


This is going to be South Africa's big chance this, with such inform solid players they have. It's now or never. AB D, Amla will be crucial with the bat. As for the bowlers, they are as class as any out there if not better.


I'm backing South Africa to win the 2015 Cricket World Cup, I really want them too. Even though, already, I have two teams to support already in BD and ENG. SA are my 3rd fav team.

GOOD LUCK TO SA !

watched bit of the CWC 2015 ceremony. It was rather boring. 2011 is better, not being biased. Just saying.

There was a ceremony?? Someone just posted a vid of that ceremony and I just skimmed through it for 2 min. It seemed terrible. This one and the WC11 ceremonies are the only ones I watched. Compared to the two, this makes the BD one look like a hit! They complained that BD "leaders" lectured for too long. What about this? Why talk at all?? Just hire big name artists and make it concert like every other ceremony! They had performances from all 14 countries which was a neat idea but just as boringl. I don't care for Afg singer or Pak dance. BD's part summed up their cultur confusion.

My take on batting prospects: Steven Smith, AB De Villiars, Kane Williamson, Glenn Maxwell, Luke Ronchi, Virat Kohli, Hashim Amla and Joe Root

and bowling prospects: Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc, Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander, Kyle Mills, Stuart Broad, Mashrafe Mortoza and Umesh Yadav

ESPN broadcast a doc on "The Little Master" this sunday 8 PT. Too bad they got one Indian narrator!

Trailer:



And here's our boy Kevin G (Kev, Vivak and Wright Thompson are the only guys represent us cricket fans on ESPN) dropping some knowledge. He's also the guy who did Top10 WC cricket plays countdown 100 days ago that I posted some where. Did a fine *** job too.


And here's another just top10 cricket from all WC's. This just aired an hr ago.

TBH, cricket is not the no. 1 sport in either Aus or NZ. Both are rugby mad country with Aus. playing FIFA world cup these days. So, not much craze about this event in Ocenia though it was interesting to organize two opening ceremonies in two countries.

^ Hence the WC should expend not shrink. ICC is too busy protecting and providing for its existing audience who are just as ignorant as ICC. SA, AUS, NZ, ENG don't even like cricket that much. Watch Aus/NZ fail to sell out stadiums once, even their own games. Their experts like Smith say bigger world cup's boring for them just because they are only interested in their teams. ICC should realize once the game expanded to BD they gained millions of new fans, regardless whether Aus/Eng fans are interested or entertained by BD cricket. Same goes for Ire/Afg/Nepal, their team brought in new fans. Expand this game to new places and gain new followers. The existing fans don't have to watch games between Canada vs China. Canadians and Chinese will. my 3 cents

^^ Agree with everything you said. Dilscoop.

Cricket is admins and most "legends/experts" are narrow minded. They dont want cricket to grow, act like as if they own cricket!

Yeah cut the smaller teams so we can have more "big match ups" like Aus-Eng which cant be a blow out!

After the completion of four matches the only game that wasn't over halfway into the chase involved a smaller team and that too against arguably one of the two best teams in the tournament. It was the only match I chose to watch more than 50 overs so far and it was definitely worth it.

I guess this also the general match thread -

ya whats up with the Irish and Zimbabweans? I think I am glad not to be in their group.
Zim > Irish > Scotland > Afghanistan > Bangladesh (although scotts beat the Irish in the WU but looks like the Irish will win today).

Another case of a weaker team losing grip. Zims let SA walk all over them after doing all the tough work up front.
