Our bowling in the match today, especially the death overs has doused whatever little hope I had.

However, the format is such that we will definitely reach quarters. And the semis too if we get an England type team as the QF opponent. But definitely not any further IMO.

Sad...

Spot on.!

Australia with home advantage have a clear lead. South Africa is right behind and they just need to win Semifinals and Finals. The rest of the tournament will be a cake walk for them.
My heart beat is increasing on the next Sundays match which we have to win at any cost.

Hope Zimbabwe, Ireland, or UAE teach this stupid team a lesson during group matches itself!

Good work by Afghanistan team today

Some surprises from the warm up matches yesterday, Zim easily bet SL and NZ thrashed SA.

Sri Lanka 279/8 v Zimbabwe 281/3 (45.2/50 ov)
New Zealand 331/8 v South Africa 197 (44.2/50 ov)

Zimbabwe also had NZ reeling at 180 for 7/8 before rain stopped play in the previous warm up. Good going, and they are in our group

The perennial chokers-South Africa should come through this time.

They have a balanced team and are playing well.

Is there any place in Pune which will be showing the India Pak match on a big screen?

I want India to win but have voted for South Africa as they are a good team and definitely need to shrug off their chokers tag and win this cup!

In the US, willow tv is not showing the cricket world cup. It's on pay per view with $99 subscription. I have already taken it ! Also , espncricket2015.com has it for $99 if you want to watch live streaming on your computer or smartphone. That way you can watch it in your office too with the volume muted !

Australia were too good for England today. India's form seems to be very poor, seeing the way they lost to same England.

Well I am hoping NZ will win this time. They are an excellent one day team and have always played well in competitions.

As far as India is concerned, they just need to win the match against Pakistan and all will be forgiven. Yes call me narrow minded but I will rather have them win tomorrow than lift the cup again.

Too excited to even sleep. This match is the match of world cup. And Ya I agree with drmohitg. I want us to win today and Cup is only gonna be a bonus.

Aus and NZ are the strongest teams this time. Will be fun. SA will choke I am sure. Again.
