How to bat your way to a World Cup final

This World Cup really hasn’t turned out as batsman-centric as people imagined. Batting-centric, maybe, but not batsman-centric.

Australia have Steve Smith and a whole bunch of minor contributors. New Zealand have four overs of Brendon McCullum and then everyone’s a little too shell-shocked to really know what’s going on after that. More on this at the usual place.

  1. Wise and witty piece, KC. The Mumbai Mirror is worth its cover price for that article alone.

    I particularly like your description of Glenn Maxwell’s batting. The only phrase I would add to the description is “Afridi 2.0”.

  2. Is this the Through The Night thread?

  3. Ever since that post about unarsedness a while back I’ve been trying to figure out which cricketer fits the term best. I think I might have settled on Grant Elliott.

  4. Arse arse arse. We’re in real trouble and I really bloody hate cocky aussies.

  5. I’m poised to win a bottle of wine from a pre-tournament bet. But it feels like a hollow victory. I just can’t bring myself to be happy for Australia.
