Moorthy: "Why don't you just refer to NLTC Perera as Thisara Parera and BMAJ Mendis as Jeevan Mendis." -- Can be annoying. An issue we've raised. Hopefully a solution soon.

John: "Seems funny that England made what seemed like a string statement in the first game and yet look like being in no better than third place and possibly in fourth after tonight. There's a long way to go, of course, and you'd say that SA were almost certainly the strongest of the losing sides in the first four games. That holds true if Australia defeat Afghanistan and possibly even if they don't."

Shubham: "Too early to start worrying. Sri Lanka and Afghanistan were expected to be the bottom two teams in the tournament. Pakistan have always been unpredictable and could come back next game looking like the best in the world. So, the only disappointment till now has been ENG v. SA not going down to the wire. Calm down people."

Pratheek Jain: "Some teams are wobbly starters. Take Mumbai Indians for example. But they make up in the later stage of the tournament. Don't judge too soon. Some teams take longer to get their nerves settled. Pakistan have historically been that way. Have faith in whichever team your supporting. They won't let you down."

Krish: "South Africa will be playing their 3rd game with India which is their 1st game in this World Cup. Strange schedule!"

Shahzada Rashid: "The big stage has its own de-merits! One sided matches so far including both being played. What a shame no contest. Really disappointed."

Mustafa Moudi: "Yesterday a World-Cup Double-Centurion smashed a 34-ball 50 to guide his team chase the low target in no time. Today yet another World Cup Double-Centurion is on crease on a similar mission. Expecting Blast from him !!"

Binusha: "Who knows, Malinga & co might turn this around for SL. (Dont laugh at us. We are die hard fans who miss good old days.)"
