there are 8 relevant teams...rest are just bought in to make for numbers..

so there are 8C2 relevant matches for semis - Pak Vs WI was a relevant match..Aus Vs Scot is irrelevant match. Any points gained in irrelevant match wont help for SEMIS...

28 matches

8 teams

So theoritically...you can win 5 relevant matches ( if 5 teams beat the other 3 teams ...and among themselves they beat each other in round robin way..) and still not qualify for semi...or win 2 relevant matches n still qualify..atleast in theory..........assuming no ties/draw...

There probably will be an upset (or two), in which a "relevant" team loses to an "irrelevant" team....and if this does has happen, it will turn the tournament upside down on it's head.

Fair effort by the Irish against Zimby. The Irish were also decent against the South Africans in a World Cup warm up. Ed Joyce is also from there...

Early days, but they could be a test nation in the not-too-distant-future

God. This is painful. NZ are bowling well, yes, but England players keep getting out to stupid, stupid shots.

Well, holy shit, Herschelle Gibbs, take a bow. Six sixes in a single over. First time it's ever been done in an ODI. The South Africans got to 3/353 - in a game shortened to 40 overs a side! The Dutch are trying to get a semblance of batting together, 5/83 as I type, but goodness, this is a huge no-hoper.

Impressive work by the Irish yesterday too - shame they didn't pull off the win! They had a chance to take the final wicket with the Zimbabweans needing two runs to tie, but the fielder put the catch down. What this does illustrate, though, is how terribly Zimbabwean cricket has declined since the start of the decade when Zimbabwe had the talent to come within a hair's breath of downing Australia.

And after some early jitters, the Black Caps are making defeating England appear to be a formality. Styris and Oram have certainly put a great partnership together - and Oram's showing he's not just a one-trick pony and knows how to bat at a more sedate pace when that's what's required.

I don't believe New Zealand will ever win a Cricket World Cup, but if it's ever going to happen, this year's the year going by the strength of our squad. Maybe we're a chance for the final. But I don't know if even that will happen. Semis? At least we've done that before.

Talk about upsets.

Bangladesh on course to beat India but more amazingly Ireland need just 93 runs and have 8 wickets in hand against Pakistan.

This could be the World Cup upset of World Cup upsets. Come on Ireland.

So Bangladesh beat India, and deservedly so, and now it seems Pakistan are going to exit the tournament on D/L. Unbelievable stuff.

The sport has been anything but posh for about 30 years...

It makes it a bit more interesting with the "underdogs" winning the occasional match, perhaps england could follow suit and cause an upset, & actually win a match!
