One week gone: not many clues

We have had a week or so of the ICC Cricket World Cup – what have we learned?

  • India aren’t as good as everyone thinks they are – it turns out they don’t have a bowling attack
  • Pakistan is better than everyone thought they would be. A well-deserved win against Sri Lanka serves notice they may be a significant force
  • Sri Lanka has outstanding players but somehow they collectively underachieve.
  • England can be terrible, brilliant and terrible again in the space of a few days (or overs).
  • South Africa has a very top heavy batting line-up
  • Australia look a decent team again (how did that happen) but Tate just looks a liability.
And most of all:

A good, tight, 50:50 is fantastic entertainment. Bring them on.
