Srikanth should be blamed first .... Harbhajan and Balaji, seriously? Didn't get anyone older? Maybe, Kapil Dev?

The ICC should award a gold medal for the winning team at the 2012 T20 world cup, that would give India absolutely no hope of winning, as was proven in the Olympics.
Carn the KIWIS!!!

Anyone else think the World Cup is boring so far? Way too many one sided matches, and the stadium is empty even for the home team.

Jesus Christ, What the fuck happened to New Zealand? They've fallen off the radar quite a bit.

I remember back in 2003-4 when I'd be excited to see guys like Vettori, Bond, Fleming, Oram, McCullum rape shit up. They were up there with South Africa and Australia at that point as well IIRC.

Yeah, horrible scheduling. They have organised all the minnow matches first and then the matches between test teams and Super 8s. At least in the group stages, there should have been a mix-and-match between matches. Like why Pakistan and WI matches start only in the second half? By the time they play their first match, SL and SA would have already completed their matches.

Yeah, I feel sorry for teams like Zimbabwe. Their tournament is already over after 3 days.

It's a joke of a tournament to be honest... One every year is a bit much for me

Yeah we were better back then, but the early 90's was probably when we were at our strongest. Still got 3 of the 5 players you mentioned, but for some reason heaps of our good players tend to retire too early IMO, like Bond, Fleming, Cairns, Crowe etc. We're in a bit of a rebuilding faze at the moment, although we played well yesterday, especially Macca.
Got some promising batting youngsters coming through & getting valueable experience such as Guptil, Williamson & Ryder (when he's there, which is rare lately). Not really liking our young bowlers too much, only one that I can say is going to be a good player in a few years is Southee. We don't even seem to be giving any other young bowlers the chance to gain experience, the rest of our attack is the same old players who have been around for a while & never really hit any great heights in international cricket.
We only have a population of 4 million & we usually make it to the semi-final stages of most limited over tournaments, so that's pretty impressive considering the populations of the other countries. Overall though we still field like demons, have one of the most aggressive batting line ups, who from 1 to 11 are all capable of hitting big 6s, although they're too aggressive at times, which can cause major batting collapses. But our bowling is definitely our major problem, which is only going to get worse once Vettori, Mills & Oram retire, which is just around the corner.
