Good start for Punjab, four off the first delivery. Hope they can keep it up and make a game of this.

I actually haven't been back to cricinfo so i don't know the final result either.

I think in honour of the IPL we need to get a few more Indian location Superthread titles going on.

No doubt. I was just thinking Punjab's a good name itself, "pun jab".

I bet we can find some even better ones too.

I've always liked Chittagong in Bangladesh. It's not funny but it sounds great.

I've always like Kandy in Sri Lanka too. We've been ignoring the sub-continent a bit, i think. There are some fun names in there.

It cracks me up the 9 off the first over is "well off the pace"

Hah, yeah, that's a good one. We've been covering the UK and Australia pretty well, but certainly need to broaden our scope. Time to mine the subcontinent.

Me too. What's unbelievable is that this target of 241 sounds like it's a fullblown ODI! If this kind of thing keeps up for the whole tournament, and if the second team proves able to chase it down, it will have really interesting implications for ODIs.

Looking at the list, we did hit the subcontinent early, but not regularly.

I expect more 300+ scores. But most teams are scoring over 100 runs in the last 10 overs now anyway, it's just a matter of time before the time to slog slowly moves towards the 30th over...

It's not quite on the subcontinent, but one place I can't believe we haven't done yet is Bangkok.

Especially as its full ceremonial name is Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit.

Considering we couldn't even fit Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotameteaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenakitanatahu properly in the subject line, our chances of getting real Bangkok in are rather low....

I'm starting to worry about the future of the ODI though, if Twenty20 can continue to come close to replicating its scores and force ODI batsmen to slog in a Twenty20 way.
