More importantly, he beat Matthew Hayden’s record for fastest World Cup hundred.

That is an insane amount of extras for this day and age (especially for a test playing nation).

Christ on a bike. What a sorry bunch of leotards.

Kevin OBrien was amazing in the match. He will surely get picked up for IPL by Vijay Mallya.

The result should be overturned. No-one with a haircut like O’Brien’s should be allowed anywhere near the field of play.

Agreed. And well said.

4. England’s current attack now has the 5th worst economy rate for any side ever in a World cup.

I know it is a different form of the game, and perhaps they are tired (or something), but as most of these bowlers reduced the Australian test side to (Aeroplane) jelly, that makes Oz batting seem even more feeble. (And I think their ODI series success was a fluke.)
PS Anderson Sreesanth?

The symbols didn’t print – Anderson less than or equal to or greater than Sreesanth?
March 3, 2011 at 12:20 am
Anderson and Sreesanth are perhaps the only bowlers who can swing the ball without having to rely on pace. No matter how crappy their world cup returns are, and no matter what they say or write about these two, I enjoy watching them. It is hardly their fault – subcontinent is not their niche.

Thanks for that – if the subcontinent isn’t Sreesanth’s niche, somewhat of a problem, even if he is more useful away from home and immediate environs!

I’ve also realises that I associate the two for a completely stupid reason – similar pained expressions when things are not going well. Yes, most bowlers grimace, or at least display some shade of “not best pleased-face” when results are, say, less than optimal – but these appear to be similar grimaces.

It looks like Andy Strauss adopted the Dhoni school of defensive captaincy to defend a more than adequate score.

5. Kevin O’Brien is English (see Eoin Morgan)
March 3, 2011 at 10:10 am
I was waiting for someone to catch onto that.
Take a leaf out of the aussies book and select their best player (hell take the 2 or 3 best players) about 2 years out from the world cup in an inconsequential match against an associate nation.
That way it’s highly unlikely they will embarrass you next time around. In that vein I expect Tommy Cooper to make his debut against a giant like Canada before the next world cup.

Kevin O Brien was very Afridi! We like.
