After a resounding win for the South Africans against the Netherlands yesterday, we are faced with a double header which pits New Zealand against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh against the West Indies.

Both matches should be won by the stronger opposition, yet the opposition is not what yuou would call an out and out minnow. Should make for some good viewing. Join us here for updates.

    Yeah, KSA is leading..

    He certainly came from nowhere. Now its time to catch him..

    With the tougher games coming up, its more about the winner than it is about the margin.

    They will win this without much a sweat.

  • There can be no doubt that this is a spinners WC. Afridi with a 5-fa , Tahir and now Vittori cleaning up nicely.

    The likes of Parnell and Tsotobe will be lucky if they get any game time.

    For sure, times are a changing … 3 or 4 ‘spinners’ to pick from and young up and coming flyhalfs ..Good days ahead perhaps.
    Steyn could not even buy a wicket against the Netherlands.

    For wicket victories
    Exact: 0.7 pts
    Within 1 wicket: 0.5 pts
