81-2 through 20 overs. Gonna be an interesting day.

So long as the Aussies don't win, I'm happy.

Cricket? I thought that was one of those made-up British wizard games, like Quidditch.

Go to youtube and do a search for Cricket. It is a tremendously fascinating sport. You'll get hooked.

Ew... >.<

NZ is going to destroy them.

170 runs is not going to cut it.

I prefer to stay ignorant and make fun of the British from afar, thank you very much.

It's a shame. It's a tremendously enjoyable support. It's the equivalent of going to a Cubs game. You go, you have a good time, you get drunk, and some guys with bats may or may not do something (Just like at cubs games, rooting for the home team is completely optional).

Bangladesh just grinded to a halt. They were doing okay up until about the 33rd over...

They aren't even going to play out their overs at this point. Batsman are dropping like flies.

Still trying to figure this game out. I here its good however, Woohoo baseball is starting today. Good luck in the World Cup!!

(I'm well aware of the game of cricket, if only from the HHGTTG. I may have even seen a game on TV once. It's just too damn slow to keep my attention, though I suppose booze would help.)

Did someone catch the snitch yet?

They played like a bunch of children in front of the Aussies.

NZ is going to whomp them. 39/0 through seven overs. Run rate of almost seven.

It's over.

Only problem with upsets in the qualifiers is you are likely to get more one sided games in this phase. Although on current form West Indies and/or England vs Bangladesh could be interesting/competitive games.

Only took 29.2 overs. Thanks to Flemings century.
