  • World Cup Cricket 2007 !!!!!

    Hello,
    I thought it wouldnt be bad to discuss about upcoming world cup cricket 2007 event. Seems plenty english,Aussie and NZ people around this forum. I am sure all you cricket lovers already have shedule of 2007 World Cup cricket. If you dont have shedule with you, you can simply drop e-mail to me, and i'll forward the shedule to you or check out at espnstar.

    I am from India as you can see next to my "avatar". I am cricket fan obviously.
    But i lost my interest last year when India was not winning any game at all. Now again i am a cricket fan. Lotsa new players like Irfan Pathan, Zaheer Khan, Sri santh . Sri Santh packed many wickets during our recent South Africa tour. I hope he'll show his talent in World Cup 2007.

    So here are few questions i want to ask >>>

    1. Who will win this world cup ?

    2. Who will get prize of batsman ?

    3. Who will grab maximum wickets ?

    & Who is your favrouite batsman & bowler .


    My answers are as follows .

    1. India may be
    2. Aussie or Indian batsman
    3. Anil Kumble or Muralidharan

    Fav batsman > Sachin Tendulkar
    Fav bowler > Glenn McGrath

      Ah, I never understood it, and what's even worse, I never understood how so many millions of ex-British subjects think it's so "British" to play it...

      Perhaps I should keep my mouth shut.

          I would rather watch grass grow than watch Test Cricket. Much more action watching the grass. Cricket :yawn:

                I only see baseball matches in hollywood movies fewer times. Cricket is famous game in more than 14 countries world wide. I think baseball is very limited game.
                I never baseball matches in any south asian country or i read news about it. But yes i always read news in sports section about French Open tennis , Australian Open and other tournaments.

                major difference between baseball and cricket is, toplay cricket you dont need specific "stick" or gloves or baseball Ball. Just pick and notepad, or wood stick which is broad or anything which can be a Bat..hehe ! Come to India and u'll see all small lanes in most cities are filled with youngsters playing the "Street Cricket". Yeah ...Its a funny sport can be played anywhere..haha ! When i was in school we used to play at terrace with Ball made up of plastic. And wooden made Bat for childrens.

                Here some preference for those who really dont no about Cricket.

                In Cricket match there are two opponants in every match as usual in BaseBall, Tennis or in Soccer.

                Both teams contains 11 players.

                There is a Toss. A coin they put on a thumb and throw in air, and captains from both team are there.1 of them says head or tails. If it tails he have option to choose to select batting or bowling.

                There is a pitch of 22 yards.

                Hmm ....And much more....Search at Wikipedia and you'll get idea of Cricket in depth. ALright then,

                    Oh and isn't todays match a scorcher. 156 runs to win. :yawn:

                    World Series Baseball. Name the countries in the World that participate in the "World Series"? Clue, it is a country that thinks the Sun revolves around them.

                    Sco, baseball is very popular in Asia. They even have championship games between countries each year. Also, baseball is very big, huge even, in Japan (which, unless I am mistaken, is in Asia).

                    Cricket, "they toss a coin" then one set of tossers go into the field and the other set of tosser bat.
                    1 1 was a racehorse.
                    2 2 was 1 2.
                    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

                              Will see what I can do. Give me plenty of warning so be sure to phone a couple of hours before you are due to arrive. (Don't want you to arrive and we have an empty gas bottle, though hopefully by Nov I will have it connected to mains gas).
