World Cup 2011

Postby Kizyr » Fri Mar 11, 2011 8:43 pm

Hi everyone! I know I've been on hiatus for a little while. Sorry. Busy with tons of other stuff.

Anyway, I've been avidly following the 2011 Cricket World Cup in India/Bangladesh/Sri Lanka lately. And my favorite team (Bangladesh - see sig) has had back-to-back an embarrassing defeat (to the West Indies) and an amazing victory (against England)! My other favorite team (Sri Lanka) has had some ups and downs, but they're at the top of their points table so it's a little less nail-biting following them.

So... with this latest victory, Bangladesh actually has a shot of breaking out of the group stage for the second year in a row--for a team considered one of the 'minnows' this is pretty big. Unfortunately it's still a long-shot--unless some really weird results start happening, they've gotta beat the Netherlands (which is likely) and South Africa (which is really unlikely...).

I'd love to see what the streets of Chittagong were like last night.

Some other crazy results:
2/22 England nearly got beat by the Netherlands (England won with 8 balls left)
2/26 Pakistan narrowly beats Sri Lanka (-grumble-)
2/27 India and England tie
3/2 Ireland beats England in what's the greatest upset of the cup
3/11 this result, where Bangladesh beats England it just me or do all the odd events seem to surround the English?

I'll probably start watching every game as well (instead of just the weekend ones) once it gets past the group stage. Just the time zone difference is killing me here. KF
