Stricker wasn't his best at all. No points through the tourney. Woods was poor apart from that match vs Colsaerts. But Love could not have expected to lose the first five matches, especially when it's usually the US who dominate this format.

Pointless musings only.

    Woods 1/2 point from 4 counted so much,  probably had the hump because he wasn't getting paid and couldn't stand his colleagues as per usual. 

    I still reckon Mikelson is the player the Euros fear the most because he can putt and play ridiculous shots at times.       Always tough to play against whereas Woods always looks lost in Ryder cup.

    Not much doubt there, especially in the foursomes and fourballs. Woods' singles record is pretty decent. Phil is a magician, obviously not Seve level, with the wedges and shorter clubs.

    Hijack? It's been golf for the past five days. And then come the Links championships, which Lara, Warnie, Steve Waugh and Beefy will all be playing. So, it's perfectly reasonable to be golf again over the week.

    I'd rather watch Kepler Wessels bat for 7 hours than watch 20-20.  All the games merge into one and are instantly forgettable.

    Instant gratification for the kids but ultimately completely pointless.

    Goodness me, that's nigh on masochism. For all the twits that the Saffas have produced, Kepler's got to be the worst. Even South Africans can't stand him.

    But worry not, Kragg Brathwaite has the ability to outdo Phil Tufnell's duck without blinking.

    Agree though, dour stuff can be intriguing, sixes every ball aren't so.

    The ECB would've  had to grovel to him equally as much considering how crapulent with the bat England are without KP. They stood no chance here without him.

    Only other world cup in 2015 is the Rugby world cup.

    Flower seems to have lost a lot of his meticulous planning qualities in recent times. 2015 is too long, that's Fletcher long.

    Funny when you realise how organisations who look and seem in control sometimes really are not all that powerful as they  may seem.

    Unfortunately waiting for the KP moment in cycling to humble the UCI, has not come yet..
  • ReplyReply

  • ram

    Bit of a push to call the ECB as the UCI. All said, KP brought it upon himself. He got the harsh end, well harsh compared to Swann and Broad, but he deserved it. It wasn't just him that did.

    Everyone seemed a bunch of :censoreds fumbling along, just that even they're better than clueless :censoreds. This tournament was as poorly planned as the 2007 2020 World cup, and Philip flipping Schofield was in that team.

    True..

    If they had not got lucky with Wright coming into form it would have been somehow worse than it has been, but the whole build up was rubbish. Seemed like they were focusing too much on SA series and when that went wrong...

    True not much to compare UCI to ECB, but i think they do have some aspects which do share some resemblances
  • ReplyReply

    Again, I'd take a test series win over the Jaarpies any day over a 2020 World cup. It was just the cluelessness of the team. What's the point of changing a team which for once has looked competitive in the tournament and replace it with messiah Dernbach.

    Every organisation share resemblances with the UCI, not every organisation puts their weight behind an accused. Still don't see the comparison, tbh. Now if the ICC protects Tendulkar from match fixing claims, then it's comparable. Never happened, never named, never implicated.

    Been out the loop for a few days, but boom, Europe, get in!  That was awesome.

    Glad I'm not in alone in this entire T20 passing me by - really couldn't care less about it at all.  ICC take note. 

    As for KP, thank heavens because much as I find him rather irritating, I have the nagging feeling that England's middle order really needs him.  As Ram said, Flower's careful planning seems to have rather gone awry - particularly in terms of developing strength in depth.  I don't really want any of Bopara, Morgan, Bairstow (not test players) or Root (too young and unproven atm) in the team.  Compton I can't make my mind up on - yes he had a great season, but is he the next best batsman on the county circuit, I don't know.  Consequently, KP at four, provided he's 're-integrated' successfully into the team, would be just marvellous.

    Ed Smith had a top season too.

    Bairstow needs time, if he's given half as many chances as Bopara got, he'd have fifty caps. He scored a 90 odd against South Africa, when was the last time Flopara got near 30?

    Be a good Australia Windian prelude with Australia and Windies playing. Good match, but Stephanie Taylor's gone and female Broad Elyse Perry is on fire.

    She looks like Stuart Broad, which does not say anything about her masculine appearance, more about Broad.

    She's the goods, and a football player too. No comparisons of women's quicks to men's though. No surprise final there.

    Doherty bowling the final over to Gayle.  This can only end badly for Xavier.

    Somewhat amazingly (I think), the Aussies managed to restrict Gayle to facing only 41 balls, despite him batting for the full 20 overs.   Imagine what he could have done if he'd faced even another 10 or 15?  Still, got an absolute mountain to climb to win this one.

    Poor fellow Gayle, from being squeezed in his hotel room by some women to being squeezed by male physio on the pitch.

    Warner goes and the order just gets taller.

    The Aussies have the firepower, but they cant lost wickets and if Watson goes their chances get halved imo
