ya..very less crowd.. Also there was not good 'Shouting of crowd' during bating of shewag & yuvraj in India-Barmuda match.

yes. They are worried no one watch them, if India don't qualify for the next round. Lot of money flows from India but performance of India team is bad.

So the WC 2007 bids adieu to India with a promise to return at 2011.

Every major spoting events are bound to have some upsets. Biggies go out making way for upsets and some lesser known players/ teams rise to occasion giving way to fairy tale stuff.

WC 2007 proved no different, and unfortunately it was India/ Pakistan turn to give way to upsets. Ireland/ B'desh are going to enjoy the cindrella-isque status for upcoming weeks. They must have enjoyed dream run so far.

Best thing out of this fiasco is, Indian media too has finally got something else to discuss other than Bob Woolmer. Woolem topic was going around way too much to digest.

Time for Indian fans to enjoy world cup with pure entertainment point of view. Heartbreak times are gladly over. Cheers!

I read this joke somewhere.When Sachin was hitting big sixes against Bermuda, his son went to his mom and said: �Mom, Papa is hitting big sixes� Mom replied : � Watch it properly, it must be some advertisement � it can�t be a real match�.

Yesterday, i got this message

Sachin's wife: Sachin, Go to market and buy vegetables...
Sachin: My situation is worse.
Sachin's wife: Wear a Saree and go..

In the market,
One Lady: Hey, Sachin...
Sachin: Oh my god, how come you know?
One Lady: Can't you recognize me? I am dravid.

I think south-africa , australia, srilanka and newzealand will make it to semis.
An Australia-South Africa final will be very interesting.

well, there have been many attempts to start a parallel league to ICC like Kerry Packer world series in 80's .
There was also a tourney called Hong Kong Super Sixes in late 90's.
But largely , there have been unsuccesfull to stand upto the level of ICC tourneys.

I don't think it was something negative.....I mean what's been told by Sameer is a fact....there was a time when people were posting around 20 comments a day....but now it's come down to almost a single post in 5 days or so.....Maybe one of the reasons is that most of the people contributing to the thread were Indians and unfortunately they've crashed out of the WC....but that's not a good enough point to abandon this thread.....There are lot of good teams around and New Zealand is definitely my pick at the moment....Shane Bond is rockin'....He'll be the guy to watch out for

I will remember it as poorly managed, but more for the performance of Bangladesh, showing that they can contend with the best on the big stage. Previously they had beaten Australia, but the new scalps and making it to the second round was a big accomplishment. With a first-class coach they will be a strong team in the near future.
