Notes from the pavilion for October 20th

Links of note from the past 24 hours:

Can v NZ; Neth v Scot, World Cup

Canada take on New Zealand and Netherlands face Scotland in today’s games. I was depressed and alarmed at Zimbabwe’s listless, pathetic performance yesterday. They were shockingly poor. But as my boss noted, it’s not the players’ who are to blame. They’re just too young, too inexperienced. Nevertheless, they should not be in this tournament – morally or otherwise. Anyway, keep your eye on the scorecards below and leave your thoughts, like the winners you all are.

Eng v Can; Aus v Neth, World Cup

More upsets! We want more upsets! Ireland and Bangladesh managed it yesterday. Maybe England can cause their own shocker and beat Canada…

Chat away. Scorecard links below

England v Canada scorecard

Aus v Scot. Can v Ken. World Cup

Two cracking games today: Australia v Scotland; Canada v Kenya. I still fancy Scotland to upset somebody, perhaps not Australia though. Stranger things happen though.

I’ve a day off so will miss both of them…leave your own thoughts below.

Cricket in Canada (for mailliw)

Mark emailed this fabulous photo of cricket in Canada (Vancouver). I think I should perhaps print a book of all the ones found on Flickr…(thanks to whoever it was that suggested it the other day).
