    Who do you think is gonna win the 2019 Cricket World Cup? Personally I think Australia are gonna retain the world championship and although everyone expects England to win, I think England will crack under the pressure of being favourites as we saw yesterday against Pakistan. All in all though, it's gonna be a well fought contest among all teams.

    Test cricket is my interest to be honest, so I do not know much about the ODI form of the teams. Personally, I like to see New Zealand do well because I like their ethos and the way they go about things, a stark contrast to Australia it has to be said. Four years ago, I was gutted when they lost the final to their neighbours. It would be great to see them triumph. :)

    Yeah I like Test cricket more than the other formats as well. The short formats don't really test the batsman and they can sometimes be weighted too heavily against the bowling team although sometimes Test cricket can be weighted too heavily in favour of bowlers but I rather Test cricket anyway.

    I like New Zealand too and I wanted them to win the last World Cup so I was also disappointed but I think that Australia will have the upper hand over the other teams due to them having actual people who've won a World Cup before being in their squad.

    I like to stay private so I don't want to say where I'm from but given that you're British why don't you support England?

    Lol... if you don't mind me asking though, why not? Why don't you like them as a team?

    No, I don't like England as a country. Having said that there are members of the team I do not like. Principally Stokes! :mad: He is just a thug and belongs on the football terraces chucking bottles and coins at people. A nasty bit of work in my view.

    Oh why?
    You have to admit that he's a decent batsman and good fielder though...

    Whatever his achievements are irrelevant IMO. He's a disgrace to the team and the country and doesn't have my support.

    Pistorius, the disabled athlete from SA was a decent runner. But it is irrelevant because he is not a decent human being. o_O

    Lel. If you like cricket, then you are definitely from either the Caribbean, India, UK or Australia. Visited all three places, and was always questioned about Lara.

    OK fair enough.
    He has his flaws but so does everyone and at least for the moment, he seems to be trying to be a different person.

    Yeah there's been some surprises so far, it's gonna be a close contest among all teams.
    Yeah I'm from one of those countries and yeah, Brian Lara is a legend.

    The moral of this thread is don't make cricket threads in the Sandpit section because it will get ignored. This forum can be weird - the football thread was moved to Sandpit but every other sport thread stays in the off topic section.
