    In Australia's newspapers was an article about how the Scottish coach and their captian say that they can knock Australia off.
     
  7. Are you sure it didn't say 'out' instead of "off"?

    Hard ******** the Scottish.

    Not up to much in cricketing terms though.

    Aus have started well in the warm ups, 2 wins with Hogg finally getting some wickets and Tait looking quick as usual.

    Knock off can mean to beat.

    Scotland 100/6 chasing 334 by aussie. Ponting got 113 and Hayden got 60. A quick fire 40 by Hogg off 15 balls helped them to an alirght total against the scots.

    McGrath 3/14 off 6 after being first change.

    Good to see McGrath getting 3 wickets, his test will come against SA.

    Geez, what`s the story with the "minnow" teams at this CWC? Fair enough, smashing 36 in an over`s pretty impressive, so is Boucher breaking the great Brian Lara`s record for the fastest 50 in the CWC- but it means precisely zero IMO. Also, what did this game mean for the Dutch? Getting farked up 6-0 really- can`t do much good for the game back home. Heck, if the game wasn`t reduced to 40 overs, they might`ve been the 1st side to concede 500 in an ODI- just who wins in such a scenario? Certainly not the minnows, the CWC or cricket in general, that`s for sure.

    Shouldn`t the associates rather be playing in lesser tournaments, against lesser opposition, growing their confidence and, crucially, their skills-levels before being subjected to this type of slaughter?

    The Scots weren`t too much better against the Aussies- with no1 and no2 on the current ICC log being let loose against them, pretty much expected really.

    I agree with you, but if that were to be considered, the argument would be that without them it wouldn't be a tru world cup. To be a true world cup there needs to be teams from all over the world.

    Maybe something like the Plate and Shield series that they have on the Rugby Sevens series- more regular competition, and the chance to expand their skills levels. Everyone who follows the 7`s series can see how much it`s done for a lot of the smaller African teams in particular- and they`ve come up with some pretty hefty upset wins, and it`s been great for the growth of the game of 7`s.

    Unfortunately, the minnows just aren`t up to it at this stage, and it`s definately not good for cricket in the Netherlands, Canada etc. Getting beaten up like that, it`s just pointless.

    They already play against each other, they had to qualify to get into this world cup. I think that it is good for the teams. They get to learn by playing the big guns. it also exposes their fans to a different brand of cricket, and it will inspire the young people in their country to play for their country. but thats my opinion.

    I dont enjoy the big thrashings but i dont think there is anything wrong with it.
