The Cricket Thread

The Cricket World Cup has just started.

Australia are marginal favourites with South Africa just behind them. New Zealand, surprisingly, are third. England, Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan have all shown relatively poor form of late. And the West Indies are beyond shit.

Also, go Afghanistan!

NZ had a decent start. Sri Lanka not too bad either. The brass band, though?

for the first 4 weeks of the 6-week tournament it's probably a fair summary of the level of interest

I think you mean "Where else will you get to see Scotland v England and Afghanistan v Bangladesh?" because if you haven't go Foxtel you won't

Weird fielding position. The slips are too spread out and on the wrong end of the pitch, and what's with the twelve fielders around silly mid off?

Local conditions. Pitch 2-paced, so they've packed the slips and looking for a catch at the wicket. Obvious really...

ETA if a slower ball holds up and the batsman completes his stroke early

Went to the Melbourne Museum today and saw this, and I mean, it's clear that the bowler has an illegal action and those slips are never going to get a nick standing there, especially standing so close together .

the bloke on strike's got a high backlift. those guys in the covers had better be on their toes because he looks like he'll be strong on the off side

Poms not doing too well. Chasing 343 they are 163 for 6 after 33 overs. Improving on 80 for 5 they were a while ago, but not enough for a real chance of winning unless Botham makes a surprise appearance.

Zimbabwe doing alright against the Saffers.

South African accents are the best. Nothing is funnier than hearing a South African say "mid-awf"

Great catch to get ABdV. 83/4, with Amla, du Plessis and de Villiers all out. Zimbabwe could win this.
