  • Cricket World Cup 2007

    http://www.worldcupweb.com/WCcricket...asp?NewsID=101

    Anyone planning on going? I'll be living in Trinidad for a few years from the end of next year, so ill be sure to get some good seats.

    Nice to see the US's bid to host matches fail, nothing personal but i think West Indies cricket and economy is more deserving and needy of the tourist dollar that will come from it.

    BTW anyone know what sort of quality (if any) can be expected from the US team? about a year agao i heard a report on the radio that one of their best players was an ex pat Aussie who played 4th grade cricket in suburban Sydney

    Cricket's like playing crocket but wearing padded knees?

    Seriously, never seen that live. Funny though how English sports from a continental European view some are huge successes (hockey, soccer, tennis) and some other (cricket, rugby) are the opposite. I suppose at least that the English invented the above mentioned sports, and then probably some. Great inventive sports-nation! (Conquer the world/empire building by introducing nice games to the local populaces??)

      Don't tell the French that.

      I spose introducing sport was a step up from religion, the Spanish had their fare share of that. 1 billion Indians can't be wrong!

          Thanks Temujin, however, this wouldn't have gotten rise out of me. Cricket isn't a native sport to the US so I would assume that whatever team that the US would put together would lose to other more exprienced countries. If you asked most Americans they would be unaware that the US even had a cricket team.
