or at least do better than the Aussies.

I've been told it is, only if both teams agree to such bowling before the match...

Black Caps time I think. Anywhere in front of Aussie is a good result.

It would be great if the Black Caps won, however if they don't win the cup I think they've won the sportsmanship certificate... the game against the West Indies: some brilliant sixes and fours and that final catch! And what happened next...

Bangladesh are currently doing the Kiwis a big favour by restricting the Pakistani run rate.

Cricket story on NPR
Heard this on NPR yesterday; a guy wanted to see the matches because his kids are huge fans.

They live in India , the flights were too costly and he wanted an adventure.

So he packs the family in the car and they drive for 48 day's to get to England.
( must have been a ferry ride included , but he didn't say)
They are there and over the moon excited , kids learned a lot during the trip.

People called him "crazy", but he said it was the trip of a lifetime and worth all the challenges.

When he started the return plan , he said he went to a Dr. , the Doc asked him if they were driving back , he said no .
The doc said then he was only " half way crazy"

Bring it on Sunday! At last, free-to-air on CH4 so I'll be able to watch it.

Both cricket and F1 have suffered by being behind such a huge pay-wall.
