    Is there anybody following the ICC Champions Trophy currently taking place in India. For the uniniated, the sport in question is cricket:D

    Currently the qualifying stages are on, and the progess of Sri Lanka and West Indies is all but guaranteed.:)

    The main group stages will start in a few days from now.The Aussies are the favs for this one, and this is the one trophy which has eluded Ricky Ponting's boys:)

    Ok Nobody appeared interested in Bangladesh and Zimbabwe playing it looked :)
    So I revived this thread now with the group stages on

    Group B is a pretty neat group, NZ taking on South Africa today, Stephen Flrming has scored nearly half of the Kiwi runs so far, they are 164/7 at this moment.

    The tickets seem to be pretty expensive this time around, are all the north stand tickets 3k ?

    If thats the case, it's a bloody well waste of money.

    A spineless batting performance by South Africa. I agree that the pitch was difficult to play on, but if one really applied oneself, then scoring wasn't difficult. Their difficulties with spin have been cruelly highlighted once again. :)

    But if all matches in this tournament seem to be low scoring.People always love to watch high scoring matches.

    Yes actually its a new wicket. So it is very slow for now but till final it will be nice wicket. I heard that Sudhir Naik is the curator of the wicket.He is a gem.

    Great victory for Pakistan after the turmoil their team underwent during the week. Good batting especially by Malik and Razzaq. Sri Lanka had their iopportunities though, they could have made a bigger total--and Razzaq should have been caught on 5

    Throws open Group B ...

    The topic is actually quite active in the other thread, which is why this thread isn't seeing much of activity ;)
    Aussies take on the Kiwis today, and I think the Aussies can do it and make it to their first ever champions trophy final
