If cricket is rounders for posh people, would that make baseball rounders for people with single figure IQ's.

Nah, baseball is not that atrocious, in fact it can be mildy entertaining occasionally.

It's still the "poor man's cricket" though

Oh goodness, Pakistani coach Bob Woolmer was found unconscious in his Jamaican hotel room and died in hospital. Haven't seen an official cause of death given yet. He was 56.

With the shock death of Bob Woolmer, can this World Cup get any wierder?

Cause of death is as yet unknown, and foul play cannot be ruled out. I reckon he might have been poisoned. But that's pure speculation.

Anyhow, Brad Hodge is on fire, and the Poms are still struggling to get into top gear. Flintoff is a funny chap.

RIP Bob Woolmer

Man I love it when the minnows win, it makes it so much more interesting.

India are officialy the most overrated side in the world, and Pakistan are pathetic. I can half understand losing to Bangladesh, they are by far the best of the minnows, but to lose to Ireland, wow. I hope they both get through.

Bob Woolmer. Poor bloke, whatever the true circumstances were..

What a dramatic tournament, first upsets everywhere and now this.

And yeah, Herschelle Gibbs - can't that oke give it some? Great achievement and here's hoping that the $1M is put towards a worthwhile charity. Spare a thought for the bowler though..

Not sure what's up with England, they should have gone into the tournament being very confident but they're certainly not playing to their full potential just now. Maybe feeling a bit toured out, and who could blame them?

Still, can't wait for the clashes between the top teams. Right now most people - including the team members, even when they're drunk at sea - must surely be thinking that any team is capable of winning on a given day. Well, most teams anyway..

Everything really is happening at once. Now Inzamam ul-Haq has not only retired as Pakistani captain, but also from one day cricket entirely, with the match against Zimbabwe to be his last.

This is a sad and unglamorous way for one of the greats to depart.

Not to take anything away from Hersh, but that Dutchman was bowling the way I usually bowl.

It was a similiar story against Canada. At least two of the batsmen bowled were out because they were attempting to do sweep shots at ridiculous moments. And I have to say, although England won against Canada they were making hard work of what should have been a simple cruise to victory.

Flintoff. What a fucking idiot. England have to be the biggest bunch of hacks ever. Yes they ended up winningm but they're like their soccer team: always so much potential, so much promise, so much talk and so much expectation but never any results. They are playing as badly as they did from the Ashes through to about 3/4s of the way thru the VB series.

Does anyone else think Bob Woolmer's death was a little suspicious? I mean they lose to Ireland, and back home they are burning effigies of players and coach (they did the same when they got thumped here a few years ago) and the next day he is found dead... I mean you can't rule some mad Pakistani fan poisoning him. Unlikely I know, probably 95% it was a stress-induced heart attack, but you just never know... I wouldn't rule it out from those Pakistani fans. It was really sad reading the back of the paper today, they were talking about his plans after the World Cup, opening up a junior development camp. I think that has to rule put suicide. RIP.

Australia v. South Africa should be a good match.
