So we are headed towards the semi-finals!
Who do you think will win the ICC Championship and why ?
I support South Africa, but realistically the winners will most probably be Australia !
Well with South Africa and New Zealand both loosing in the Semi's - I guess we will have to see who wins in the final - West Indies or Australia ?
Well it was really a fantastic win from the west indians They are making into the race once again and it seems to be an event contest between the Australianz and the west indianz.
The west indians have beated the Autstralians in the league match and will have an edge for that over australia but the Australians are really professional and wouldn't let west indies have an easy time out there in the middle. I would like West indies to win but the chances for both the teams are even.
Cricket is a very boring sport these days simply because you can always guess who are going to win ultimately. Aussies dominance should come soon otherwise the whole game became a one sided sport where Aussies are always winning...
And the Champions Trophy final is between Australia & West Indies. West Indies are not very consistent in their form. When they are in their peak of form, they can a very formidable foe otherwise, they can be beaten even by meagre teams like Zimbabwe and Bangladesh....
Okay, so Australia has won, just like most of us guessed would happen. BUT that by no means makes cricket a dull sport. Australia does not win all the time. Cricket has a HUGE "luck factor" built in. Sometimes the ball may ricochet off the bat onto the stumps - and other days not. Just about every ball bowled in a cricket match can bring lots of possibilities.
I would say if W.I top orders didn't collapse after such a great start, they could of won the tournament. Its a pity though once Gayle, Chanderpaul and Lara gone, the whole team just collapse. Glad to see myself that us finally get to hold ICC Champion trophy on the other hand.
I think that Australia really played well and dominated everyone in the end.....even though they lost to West Indies, they went all guns blazing and beat India, New Zealand and West Indies.....they're the best of the best...
