My choice is not even in the choices you have listed. Somehow, something says that Bangladesh is going to win this world cup. BTW, I am not joking.

Well I think it's going to be either SL or SA. India maybe, but after yesterday's performance let's say the chances are quite low.

They may not win it, but they're going to make the semis if they continue playing as they have done in the last two matches against NZ and India.

Their bowlers bowl to a plan and strangle the opposition batsmen. Their batsmen are free-spirted and fearless as only drunks and children can be - its refreshing to see the freedom with which their batsman play.

And I love watching Tamil Iqbal bat - I've seen him in both matches so far and he's outstanding. Perhaps our 'greatest batsman' should take a look at how this 17-year-old bats and remember how he used to play at one time - it might help him put his own performance in perspective.

They're very Gung-ho and a new team like this is a breath of fresh air in the otherwise settled world of cricket.

Well said Steer. Tamim was a breath of fresh air yesterday. The total number of runs that all Bangladesh players have made to date is 3000 runs short of what Sachin's total number of runs in his ODI career. And yet we saw him struggle , scratch and perish. And you guys know what ? Its more painful watching him bat like that against almost club bowling , better he goes out immediately.

- How many of you fellas playing Super Selector this time ?????

I'm playing Cricstock <www.cricstock.com> this time. Quite interesting - I had people like Tamil Iqbal on my portfolio even before the WC began, so I'm not doing too badly.

SUddenly, the Chicago Bulls doesn't seem like such a bad bet.

He's a fat, duty-dodging pipsqueak has-been who should have retired long ago.

If he has his way he will still be around for the next world cup. I hope he leaves the scene with grace, sooner rather than later.

I would not dare call the Bangladeshi bowling 'club level' any more after that performance!

No he wont - he's planning to be around for the 2011 world cup:

Obviously he's decided that we cant win this one....

Maybe we should have Hrishikesh Kanitkar to beat the ****s of Bengal Team..Remember his stunning Debut against Bengal..!

At this rate its best to recall the team back before the tax payer pay for more and more losses..!

Taxes have nothing to do with it - the BCCI is an autonomous, self-financing body. The government doesnt spend money on these guys, thankfully.
