The above is the difference between a great and a good player.
It seems the rumor is indeed true. GCA has complained against pointing to BCCI who has in turn forwarded it to ICC.

What a loser, that too a captain of Australia.

Bluevolt,

Once you login with your team, go to My Team. You will see a section for Private Leagues, Click on that and you will see an option for Join an Existing League. Enter the T-BHP League pin 1578 and it should direct you enter the league.
If it doesn't work, OM me your email address and I will send you the invite.
Hope this helps.

Our bowling is not too different from the dutch, only we have experience on our side. Sometimes you feel even a score of 350 + is not enough with the kind of give away attack that we have.

Our secret lies with bhajji n chawla. If we wish to win this cup IMHO chawla should play each and every match.
Look today itself how Bangladesh spinners cast the web and ireland tumbled. Spin is the key to this cup.

Well i m disappointed with ireland.This match was theirs to be taken and what a mess. Anyways i dont see bangladesh winning anymore as now they play Africa,england and west indies.

Tommorows match is exciting and i feel sri lanka might beat pakistan.

I don't think spin will be such a BIG influence as the tournament progresses, yes right now it is, but we are talking about international teams like SA, AUS, PAK, SL, ENG etc who will get over their initial weaknesses against this spin attack. Yes, I agree Ireland made a mess of it, but Bangla did not deserve to win either except in the last 30 minutes.

SL WILL beat pakistan tomorrow, I am crossing my fingers on the sunday match up with england. Our bowling needs to improve in leaps and bounds if we want to entertain any thoughts of coming close to this cup. Batting alone will not win this cup for us.

Anybody going for the Sunday's match at Bangalore? Are cameras allowed? Its written that mobile phones aren't allowed. How prudent is it to take cameras?

I think it's a good result. Both teams can be happy that they didn't lose.
Indian team btw, has a lot to think about. Basically they are playing with one bowler.

What a game!!

I may get a lot of brickbats for this comment but Strauss's century was the century of this match! Wonder how Tendulkar would have performed if he was in Strauss's shoes.

Just writing this because I saw a lot of guys celebrating Tendulkar's century in facebook as if India won the match, and they all disappeared in the second half!

Strauss century was indeed worth the Man of match award. But that doesn't take away the credit of what Sachin did. Without him, we would have gone down much easily due to team's familiar collapse.

And we sure hoped we win after Tendulkar's century, too bad our bowlers didn't stand up in time.
