I hate to say it, but I think this may just become a non-contest. I really think that Australia is just going to have a relatively easy win against whoever they come up against like their 80 run win over SA. There may be a bit of a game on their hands in the final but apart from that I don't think there is too much to worry about for them.
I think you're maybe being a bit overconfident, I think Smith's going off took a huge amount of momentum away from South Africa in that match, who knows what might have happened had he not gone off. Sri Lanka will certainly give them a game as well and unlike South Africa, who aren't far off the complete package, they have Murali as well.
it will be interesting to see how things go.

With the black caps losing vincent that will be a huge blow to them, hopefully we can compete now even without an opener. I still think they will push the aussies as well.

This is going to be more of a top 6, with ireland and bangladesh unlikely to make any more inroads.

The other two teams i think may bomb out are West Indies and England, dont ask my why, i just have that feeling.
I wasn't meaning anything by it...I was just asking if that was what you thought because u didn't say it straight out, thats all :)
meh, dunno what they are doing. dont care really didnt get to see them play. will watch them against the kiwis and ill let you know :)

i am still backing the kiwis, just hope bond doesnt injure anyone else :)
kiwis can do it. even without a specialist opener. fulton and fleming are expected to open with hamish marshall at 3. there still is plenty of strike power in the nz lineup with the likes of styris oram mcMillian and mcCullum. plus the bowling attack is still all in one peice so if bond stays fit especially the black caps have a chance still. I will back them anyway
nz beat ireland by 129 runs.
nz unbeaten in world cup so far, but they have only played 2 top tier teams, england and west indies. the real test comes from now on. they play sri lanka, south africa and australia in super 8. if they can will at least 2 out of those 3 games, then only i think they will be genuine contenders for the CWC.
Were guarnteed a Semi Finals Spot now anyway, even if we drop all 3 games? I would rather we lost these 3 games, then wn the next 2 rather than win these games and bomb out to one of the same teams in the Semi's.
Just completed, South Africa beat West Indies

South Africa 356 (de Villiers 146, Kallis 81) beat West Indies 289 for 9 (Sarwan 92) by 67 runs, so the West Indies have crashed out of the tournament.
Finally the Proteas have won a game with great batting against the one of the bigger teams but I wasn't at all happy with our bowling :D :D :D :D
