Oh ho! Bangladesh score another upset win. South Africa takes the rap this time

 Hmmm..three upset wins for Bangladesh. Victims being New Zealand (in the warm up match), India and now South Africa. These wins are getting more and more regular now and maybe they dont deserve to be called 'upset' wins any more. Bangladesh and Ashraful have really done well and have a lot to celebrate. I had mentioned earlier about Bangladesh being minnows in the tournament though they are a test team. Guess I'll have to take that back now.

I am envious of their fans though! So much to celebrate for them and so less for us here. Unfair.

And now, through this unexpected win, Bangladesh have set the World Cup alive too. England and West Indies now have a better chance of sneaking through to the semis. The equation remains unsolved which means more surprises could be in store.

It has to do with the coaching of Dav Whatmore. And we are stuck with Ravi Shastri (as manager, if you please) and Chapell as "consultant" - the Indian team, with all its talent is going to the dogs....

Lets see what Shastri can offer, Rita. Anyway indications are that this is only temporary. Maybe Whatmore or even Vivian Richards may take up the job.

Anyway I am more excited about the cricket advisory panel cinsisting of former captains in place. Maybe we'll get some inputs for improvement there..
