So here we go.

The most open WC of all time?

Given the minnows have been excluded there shouldn't be so many one sided games. Playing everybody once removes lop sided draws.

England v India final methinks

Should be fun! A sneaking suspicion the Windies could be the champs.......

The Poms are flying so the result wasn't unexpected but the SA team balance seemed a bit off to me. Steyn will be a lot better than either of the change seamers and can't help but think that a spot must be found for Miller

With 8/15 players in the Proteas squad older than 30 one has to ask - where is our best batsman AB de Villiers?

At home, counting his cash...........

My view is that he is still pissed about the Abbott dropping in the last WC

More embarrassing!!

Protea batsmen playing wonderful, textbook strokes.......directly to a fielder - almost every time.....for one (1) run.........boundaries....a new concept?

The Poms have been drinking their own bath water.

Some cricket journo here was surmising that the quality of the teams in this WC is well down on earlier versions and mentioned Aust, SA, SL and Pakistan as exhibits A.

SA are so good they can send injured players to take on the rest if the world.

And wed vs India is going to be tough in all ways.

Love sambal with morning glory (vegetable).

Might be hard to qualify from 0-3.

SA have had a charmed run until about 18 months ago with the fitness of seamers. Looks like that good run has come to an end.

As much as I admire AB it would have been the wrong move to recall him.

I would ordinarily agree but selections in SA do not appear to have been made on merit only in the past, this is the World Cup and he is a freakish talent.  I guess the sticking to the qualification rules is more of a big picture approach and will be beneficial in the longer term given the compromised selections in the past
