CWC: Day 3

After the dust settles on the opening weekend of the Cricket World Cup we head straight into a week filled with cricket that should be better viewing than we have seen so far.

Today sees the defending champions Australia taking on minnows Zimbabwe, which should be yet another one sided affair, something we seen quite a bit of so far this tournament. The first real competitive match only happens on Thursday, when South Africa take on the West Indies, so in the mean time, this will have to do.

    Did you see Ponting’s comment that the minnows don’t deserve to be at the World Cup?

    They are batting slower than the Canadians did yesterday!!

  • maybe they should chose the first 6 teams on the odi rankings and make the others(minos) play out for 2 last spots. that way we get better quality games from the start.
