This is why I think the competition of the WC teams is grossly unbalanced:
Sri Lanka vs. Canada
4.4 overs and 18 minutes to clean up shop? Poor Canada

Yep, that makes 3 times thats been posted.
Canada shouldn't be discouraged from playing in the World cup. As a team they aren't quite in the same league yet, but they should be encouraged to keep up with it.
Otherwise they might be in danger of playing Basketball or Baseball

Hmmm...never underestimate any team.
They might not win the cup, but nonetheless they can stun some teams.
Like what Kenya did today to Sri Lanka!
Now they have scored 12 points and the chances of entering the Super Six looks bright.
Who knows what will happen next! :roll:
