Mind posting the source for that 'where I read' article? Woolmer and his family live in South Africa, and after the series and the match he was heading out to South Africa so there was no threat to his personal safety, IDIOT! I am more at loss for of words for the people who dont know jack about anything, who use sad moments like someone's death for furthering their racial hate using lies, unbased comments and infinite stupidity.

We keep signing players who are hardly making an impact in their own leagues...! And sell those that do good here.

We need to sign forwards from Spain, Midfielders from France and develop our own defenders.

With India stumbling + Pakistan already out, it's not been a particularly pleasing tournament for the South Asians. But nobody's talking about Sri Lanka + the threat we all know they are capable of. How have they played so far?

Sehwag seems to be playing well, but alas, against Bermuda. Let's hope this inning gives much needed confidence + is the beginning of things yet to come from him.

I'd like to have supported Zimbabwe but amidst all the controversy regarding team selection + the basic principles that their leaders use to run (more rip off) the country, I hope they're unsuccessful. Pitty since they look an entertaining bunch of youngsters who I'd probably eventually end up supporting should I have the privilege of watching the games. Still miss Fowler, Streak, etc.

FUK FUK FUK
Utthappa out for almost nothing apparently by a diving catch by THIS GUY.
And some here think Ronaldo is fat....

----------------------------------------------
From Cricinfo:
OMG! what a catch by Dwayne Levorock! And what wild celebrations! Let nobody say anymore that a fat man can't jump! Uthappa has a nervous poke, away from the body, at a length-delivery outside off stump. It flew to the right of Leverock hurled himself - hard to visualise, I am not lying but that's what happened- to his right and plucked it single-handed
------------------------------------------------


Sehwag is scoring freely - it looks good for india so far.

and Orez, look at the bright side.
Atleast you can say you didnt lose to India in this world cup. The record stays at 4-0, surely better than the 5-0 possibility.

(Lets keep this friendly shall we?)

At this rate, Zim may find themselves in the record books for all the wrong reasons.

LOL, sure, a team that can lose their opening game to Bangladesh in a WC Cricket statistics and history is the last thing I worry about, even less than making 'allies' on a forum :P

i know shit abt cricket but i got tonz of pakistani friends who were all absolutly devastated in school today after their loss to Ireland so well i just wanted to say:

Rest In Peace Bob woolmer, i heard that they're blaming charsi(drugaddict) Akhtar for his death! and well i dont think it's even smart to say "get over it, it's just a sport" because they feel the same way abt cricket as we do abt football..how did we feel in istanbul? well thats how they're feeling right now

and heres what a guy wrote in another forum, i think it really shows that you cant say get over it...because lately it's evne been rioting etc in italia, those ultras! so..yea

THE DAY AFTER

@Well... I need to get this out in some way or another.
You can call me a sensitive stupid ******, or you can support me. Do whatever you want I don't care. I just want to write this and get this out... I don't look at myself like the most unluckiest person in the world or something like that, but just need to write this...
I don't know if this is an article or a text, I don't know what this is...

I am a very emotional person, and since I started watching cricket in 2004 I started to fall in love... With this game... With PAKISTAN!
Cricket made me go crazy, had some fights with family about it, not big ones but some. Maybe it also took control of my studies. But I was really looking forward to The World Cup, and I had countdown for several years and I was SO HAPPY!
"WOW! We are such a great one day team and ofcourse we will win it " <---This got better when we got Asif. I was just so happy and was really looking foward to the WC. 365 days left, 2 months left, 1 week left... TOMORROW! Ordered several shirts and merchandises, I had praised Pakistan & cricket all over the school, even the majority is Norwegian and they are not much aware of cricket. Cricket also let the patriot in me come out, not an extremist but I stopped watching Bollywood movies and so on (which I am going to continue with).

When we lost a match there were supporters bashing the team, while others said it is ok. I was in the other group. I ALWAYS SUPPORTED THEM!!! No matter if they won or lost. Every single player!
I never doubted Inzamam captaincy. I never doubted anything (just Shahid Afridi sometimes), and I was sure that WC will prove everyone wrong!
But I was wrong...

15:30 Tuesday 13 March, match about to start I was having GYM with my class. I was angry, since I told my brother to record but he didn't do it ++ we had a fight and he rejected to put ARY DIGITAL at the projector with home cinema system downstairs. When I got in his car after school we went home he suprised me with kebab & stuff and the match was on downstairs at the big screen! I was so happy.
I watched the match... And we LOST!
Shoaib & Asif really broke my heart when they got banned, and I prayed so much and I was so happy when they came back. Now I don't know if it was the doping or injury that didn't let them play WC.

Anyway, we lost the match and my 2007 Shirt came in the post. I was ready for match on Saturday. More then a year me & my friends had been mocking The Irish team. "LOL IRELAND, who cannot beat them?"
I remember a few days before the match we were joking and stuff, but it was not in anyones mind that this would actually happen...

So yesterday after tennis my mate called and said ARY are showing PK match, I was so happy that I went to the store and spent a lot of money on candy & coke as rest of the family were in Sweden and shopping halal food (as 99% of all Pakistanis in Norway do once a month). I invited a Vietnamese mate because he is cool! =P
So we were sitting in the dark room, projector, Pakistan match. Me, a Pakistani friend and that Vietnamese guy.
HAHA! 0,1 overs 7-0! We are killing them!
HAFEEZ OUT! Okay... YK out... We were watching and couldn't beleive our eyes, but we knew that Big Inzi will not dissapoint his team! He got out...
Okay! We are building a partnership, that is good. I think if we get 160 we can defend it and learn something from this!
WHAT??? WHY DO YOU SHOOT IN THE AIR?
Another partnership, are you OUT OF YOUR MIND? IN THE AIR AGAIN?
The third one (SAMI) wen't the same way...
So 132 all out... COME ON COME ON COME ON IT IS STILL POSSIBLE we prayed...

Second innings started... SAMIII OUT!!!
WHAT? THAT WAS LBW!!!!!! SAMI OUT AGAIN!!!! WOOHOOO
Some decisions went against us, some went the opposite. You cannot blame that. A stupid partnership, they got the runs and we got some wickets. So it was like 4 down I think. We had given up all hope! I had give up all hope. I HAD ALWAYS BEEN THERE FOR PAKISTAN, ALWAYS SUPPORTING THEM WHEN WE WERE WINNING CRAZY OR LOOSING LIKE n00bs!!! Always supporting them to the very last ball. HEY! WAS THAT A WICKET? Who cares...
I had already taken my shirt off and put some other shirt on, another wicket... And ANOTHER! (the delay really killed us thou, and I was really mad at the DL 5 run thingy, but I was hoping it would not affect the match). It was not a regular match, it was WC which we all had waited on for such a long time and WE HAD TO GO TROUGH!
So they were 7 down, and believe you me when that 7th wicket fell we got soooo happy I was running down the house and screaming took off my shirt, but the other shirt on and took the flag down from the wall and put some JAZBA JUNOON. Now we were praying and praying...

But the reality came closer... We lost against IRELAND
Out of the WC.
No more Inzi jokes, he was looking so devestated at the Ceremony.
My mate went home, I was really dishearted. Couldn't beleive what had happened. After so many years, my first WC. I was really pumped up. Hours before the match I even put on national anthem and was running like a maniack around the house and so on. It was over, 4 years wait. So much experimenting, all was gone!

I went to sleep, okay here comes the strange part.
I woke up a couple of hours later couldn't breath! Or I could breath ofcourse, but I hade some pain in me, it felt like something broke and I really had to get some fresh air I was sweating and stuff, don't know how I made it trough the night.

Waking up next morning was so awful... I had to realize what had happened, tried to slap myself but it wasn't a dream. We had lost against Ireland, we were out of the WC.
4 Years of support. Sacrifizing 4 years for them (3 actually started to watch in 2004). And so much aaaaaaah WHY DID THEY DO THIS?

This is WORLD CUP! No kismat/shismat. I had always supported and backed the team when people talked crap about them. But not now...
People can say whatever they want, I just don't care now!
I am going to focus on my studies and stop watching cricket for now...

I have been writing this for 10 minutes now, I want to write more.
But I think I should stop here, even I feel that I haven't gotten it all out. If you want please post from your view how you felt/are feeling.

For some this is just a WC Loss, but for me it is much much more!

Is it worth ending this thread with Pakistan Zindabad...?

what he says above is soo sad and definately reminds me of istanbul..we know this guy and he was sooo proud of pakistan and world cup! he even wanted to buy a green car and paint the pakistani flag on it!!

but may the best team win
i guess PK ki kismat mein kuch or likha ta

Bah. Politics, schmolitics Unless the 'entertaining young players' have been handpicked by Mugabe there's no reason to make a rational rather than emotional decision

No they weren't handpicked by Mugabe, although there was some speculation that not all squad players made it by merit. Reason is, this was a Zimbabwean side who was capable of playing a decent game with top teams, beating the likes of Australia, South Africa and even India with Tendulkar (pretty much a god of the bat) in his better years.

But that's not the whole picture because key top players of the side that (while not great) was capable of creating an upset boycotted due to Mugabe's 'land program' (or whatever its called). And you can't exactly blame them if their families were attacked by mobs + all their property seized. Regardless of them being of British origin, they were Zimbabweans, just like any other black Zimbabwean. And to think Mugabe postponed general elections even though I feel his eventual successor might not be much different since this racist mentality is being fed to the young generations.

Radio, I'm Zambian of Indian origin studying in Romania. So yeah, it was an emotional decision, but guess what ... I ended up supporting Zim anyway Williams (BBC's commentator called him a 'skinny boy' ) hit 70 while Taylor hit 50 to give Zim a respectable total of 202. Ironically, they are both Zimbabweans of British origin.
