    The Cups runneth over. This one starts today and for those who don't know, this can be called one-day cricket in a hurry.
    Thoughts? Naturally, Aus are the favourites.

    Aust should win the 20twenty competition

    Probably, Aus. But it's the one form of the game where anything can happened.

    WOOT!

    It's funny, when Aus loses, the whole cricketing world rejoices.

    Swaggered in expecting a walkover and went back with tails between legs. I love it!

    Well done to the Zimbabweians. They went in with a positive attitude and played good 20-20 cricket.
    Its also good to see the South Africans being such good winners. I note there was not one word of praise to the winners from you lot.

    Feilding and bowling in that sort of rain in pretty difficult. So the Aussies were a bit unlucky.

    Although a smile came across my face when Ricky Ponting pulled out duckworth Lewis of his pocket before setting his field. He still looked utterly confused after reading it.

    20/20 Cricket?

    Play some proper bloody cricket! All this dancing, excitement and large crowds will never catch on...

    Heh, it was a good game. I'm just happy we pulled it through, we always lose against one player when we play the Windies.

    I like this form of cricket, but Christ, the dancing really irritates me.

    Trying to do some weird American cheerleader thing when a boundary is hit? It's just stupid.

    No. He said he hated the cheerleaders - and I agree. Now p*ss off.
