Cricket World Cup: Day 2

It’s the second day of the biggest event in cricket and today we have two games to look forward to.

In the first match, Kenya take on New Zealand in what should be a really interesting match. The Kenyans always manage a shock win in the World Cups and New Zealand’s form lately has been worse than a Lions Super Rugby season. Do not rule out a shock victory for our African cousins.

The second game should be a more one sided affair with second favourites Sri Lanka taking on little known Canada, a country better known for Ice Hockey and Moose Hunting. This match should be over quite quickly.

Join us here for a bit of fun and banter after a successful first Super Rugby round.

  • The way things are looking now, I’m not going to get close to a margin point here. 🙁

    Kenya are 51/5 after 17.3 overs.

  • What a bounce back from NZ…they were terrible the whole of last year…I think 2 of 18 leading up to the WC which includes a 5-0 loss to Bangladesh in NZ..

  • Anyone have any idea what is up with the SB scoring?

    I have picked the 1st 2 wins correctly.
    The leader board shows me as having 1 point.
    The personal streak on my profile shows me as having 2 losses.
    The Bar graph on the tournament performance shows me as having 2 points.
    The tabulated info shows me as having zero points.

    WTF?

    Do they adjust the picks as well or is it just tough tekkies?
