World Cup Thoughts - Feb 22nd

After 4 boring matches finally a close one. Netherlands certainly embarrassed England though they just did not have the bowling attack to beat them. While Australia certainly proved too good for Zimbabwe. Here are some random thoughts
  • Ryan ten Doeschate (RTD) was awesome with the bat and the ball. But if he had not misjudged that Ravi Bopara six shot, who knows what could have happened next.
  • The ICC qualification rules for players do need an overhaul. Or else playing for country will soon become similar to playing for a club.
  • If Dirk Nannes had still been playing for Netherlands, things certainly could have been different.
  • Shane Watson is now the Aussie for all season.
  • Australia cant play spin.
  • Ricky Ponting's behaviour is certainly tarnishing his legacy. Breaking a TV now ???
  • After a pathetic start my cricinfo fantasy team finally has taken off in style (Thanks to Watson & RTD)
  • RTD has to be a good batsman. He has "ten" in his name. (After all we do know what a certain batsman whose surname starts with "TEN" is capable off)
World Cup boring so far. Where are the big matches? ICC has to be blamed for some atrocious scheduling.

And finally, thoughts are with people in New Zealand who have been impacted by the earthquake there.
