I confess that I don't know much about this as I pretty much stopped taking a detailed interest in cricket when it disappeared from terrestrial TV. Anyway, can anyone "in the know" explain why the draw appears to be so biased? Group 1 consists of 6 leading cricketing nations (Bangladesh is perhaps "debatable" ) whereas Group 2 boasts Scotland, Namibia and Afghanistan alongside India, pakistan and New Zealand. With only 2 teams progressing from each group, those in Group 1 will have their work cut out.

There were some that already qualified through world ranking. The others played a qualifying group last week. The bottom two of each group you listed, qualified through that.
For 20/20, off of the top of my head, India are probably the current best - perhaps followed by NZ and England, maybe Australia.
In 20/20 pakistan aren't a top, top side if you see what I mean, nor are South Africa for example. In fact, Bangladesh and Afghanistan are not bad at 20/20. Scotland the biggest over achievers so far.
I hope that helps somewhat, I'd say group 1 slightly harder than 2 but 2 has both NZ and India - two potential champs. Favourites for group 1 will be England.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

A competition to find out who is the worst side at batting in the world.

Glad to see Mills getting a couple of wickets. Before his injury problems he was a real prospect and properly fast.

I would like to amend my comments about the batting?

pakistan just smashed India 152-0, first time ever in a World Cup.

What's the 'first' here? First 10-wicket win? First pakistan win over India? (etc). Cheers.

First time pakistan have beaten India in a world cup match.

Surprising, as pakistan are often a tough proposition.

There are two pakistan teams. One is a world beater and the other plays like amateurs. It looks like it might be the former turning up at this World Cup
