Um... just wondering, but how are you from Trinidad and Tobago if you were born and raised in England?

Re: World Cup Cricket 2007 Countdown......

power man,
Interestingly, Kenya made it to the semi-finals in the previous edition of the World Cup in 2003.
But they were beaten by India. In the other Semis, Australia beat Sri Lanka.
Eventually, Ricky Ponting & Co. won the cup, thanks to a super knock by the skipper!

Toast,
The end result alone counts. They fought back, yet again, skipper Ricky leading by example.
Thatswhat makes them one of the strongest contenders.

rida,
I think Pakistan's peformance in the cup would much depend on Mohammad Yousuf, Shahid Afridi and Abdul Razzaq.

Re: World Cup Cricket 2007 Countdown......

England has won the Commonwealth Bank series beating Australia 2-0!
Well done, Flintoff & Co.!
Well done, Collingwood!
What a comeback after being annihilated 0-5 in the Ashes!
And what a way to go into the World Cup!

Re: World Cup Cricket 2007 Countdown......

What a way to win!
South Africa (RSA) have been distinctly unlucky in the World Cups.
Mostly the Duckworth-Lewis formula in a rain-affected match has spoiled their prospects!
I believe they're a pretty good side,
they have the world record of chasing the highest ever score in One Day Internationals,
Kallis, Pollock, Boje, Boucher and Gibbs are all top-class players, without doubt!
I would be surprised if they don't make it to the semi-finals!
Thereafter, it is just how the team performs on that day!

Re: World Cup Cricket 2007 Countdown......

Very well done, Ricky & Co.!
Winning three World cups consecutively is indeed a great achievement,
and the Aussies did it in style, winning all their matches by huge margins!
Gilli proved yet again, that he's the fastest scorer among contemporaires, in fact, he's the fastest in the history of the game, be it LOIs or Tests.
Great work, Team Australia!
Congratulations, Adam Gilchrist(Man of the finals) and McGrath (Man of the series)!
Finally, adieu, McGrath, obe of  the greatest fast bowlers in the history of the game!!!
