You don't have much trust in them.
SL are not that bad of a team, and they certainly can win the World Cup.

I think the favorites are still Australia, but they have not been defeated in a long time, it would be nice to see them loose this world cup

Alternatively, if he's not the one to drop the catch, it'd be nice of an umpire actually gave the flat-foot out lbw for once.

He has had more of the dropsies lately, but he has also been taking some impossible catches.
It what goes around comes around works, he certainly should get the finger as soon as the ball brushes his pad. Not so much the current one dayers, but the last test series decisions were unbelievable. I reckon it is because he is so big the umps don't know where the stumps are. Big grin

or in semi-final ranks:
Australia,
Sri Lanka,
New Zealand,
South Africa

Australia V South Africa (1 V 4)
Sri Lanka V New Zealand (2 V 3)

Australia has been so good that it is very hard to imagine South Africa beating them.
Sri Lanka are the bookies favourites to win against New Zealand (as SL won last time and NZ got thrashed by Australia)
however NZ will be back to full strength so I'm predicting the final will be Australia V New Zealand.

I wish it were different but it's hard to see past SRL for tonights game. It's really quite incredible how well balanced a side they are now. They do have some fragile moments, but the kiwis are more prone to such moments.

All the same, Go Black Caps!!

I guess deep down I will be the happy if Australia win,but I think for the
goodness of the game we all would like a couple of close exciting games for a change.
My world cup order is as follows:
1. AUS
2. NZ
3. SA
4. SL

Note to Eddie McGuire :

Why aren't you telecasting both of the Semi-Finals?

Here I am staying up for the first Semi and a ******* Quiz show is on. It's not hard to work out why Eddie's Network is going down the gurgler.

Looks like the Sri Lanka batsmen got it instead. Silva and Dilshan got absolute shockers today. Still, NZ up against it needing 290 to win.

NZ must pray for rain now, Malinga has 2 maiden overs and one wicket now.
I must say that I´m deeply impressed by Vaas and Malinga, 2 wickets taken, 3 maiden overs between them.
32-2.

No. SL showed they can win. Goodbye NZ.

I want SL or SA to win the cup. I am sick of Australia winning all the time. And yes I don't particularly like the Australian cricket team.

Dreadful display from the Black Caps. Sri Lanka are a tough team anyway, but the manner of defeat was very disappointing. Right from the start NZ seemed to freeze, their fielding was poor, their bowling was worse, and the last ten overs of the Sri Lanka innings was a complete shambles. Have the cricket team been taking psychological advice from the rugby lot?  Big grin

And now on to South Africa - Australia. Australia should win, but the Saffers are quite capable of turning them over. This one could be a cracker.
