    It’s the half way stage at the ICC… 

    It’s the half way stage at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. A quick look at the current standings and performances.

    Group A: Before the tournament started, very few would have imagined Pakistan leading the group at the half way mark. Thanks to few outstanding performances by Afridi, they are at the top and undefeated. Australia is a close second, going on expected lines, they would be ruing the bad weather against Sri Lanka which forced them to share points. Sri Lanka on the other hand needs to lift its game, they were shocked by Pakistan. New Zealand is also going strong. Minnows- Kenya, Zimbabwe & Canada haven’t caused much of threat, barring the Pak-Canada game they were mercilesslyย beaten .

    Group B: This is where all the action is taking place. A tied game, couple of upsets ( One was huge ) and few mind blowing centuries. Lot of excitement. Despite poor show by the bowlers, India is aptly topping the group [ The other teams have been highlyย inconsistent ]. Indian thumped Bangladesh, played out a high scoring tie against England [ that game gave me a mild heart attack ๐Ÿ˜› ] and yesterday took out a remarkable bunch of Irishmen. Meantime, South Africa which was expected to top the table started very well but, crashed in yesterday’s game [ no surprise there, only SA can pull off such miracles ๐Ÿ˜€ ]. England on the other side is playing see-saw. Indies are rocking. Bangladesh are reduced to cats. Netherlands did their bit however, it’s Ireland which set the stage on fire, they produced a thriller against England slamming record runs batting second.

    So, at the half way stage it looks like rivals India and Pakistan hold an edge with Australia a close second, trying desperately to hold on their ” World Champions”ย title. Next couple of weeks may change the table. We’re all set for many more surprises and loads of top class Cricket. I just saw a news piece, it said India has been the most misbehaving team, lot of on-off field altercations, not a happy sight. It’s surprising to see Aussies [ who are largely considered the masters of sledging ] not getting into any ugly scene. Cricket is labeled as ‘ Gentlemen’s game ‘ and I hope teams act more responsibly, especially the hosts.

    Trust you enjoying theย tournamentย as well, do write your feedback. In case you aren’t following the world cup, take some time out and cheer your teams, believe me it’s fun.

        BTW..I saw Afridi’s interview…he isn’t too keen to play in India..worried abt crowd trouble…does that mean he doesn’t want to play Semi or the big finals ๐Ÿ™‚

          uff…u know when the paki team shits fans take it as a huge insult. they thrash them at the airport pelt them with shoes and eggs raid their houses throw stones burn posters burn effigies….that scares the team into not repeating the same performance next time. from wat i heard they do the same in india. not sure how true that is tho. but maybe bd fans shud do that too….the team shud realize wat an embarassment they r to their country.

      Hey Narendra, i’m a bit late with catching up on my reading. By now we know what happened – but it must be wonderful to feel so excited. ๐Ÿ™‚
