From the Editor :

So, the qualifying stage of the World Twenty20 was fun, eh! How about those Netherlands batsmen! That was a cracking game, and one of a few, it must be said. Did you enjoy those games more than you thought you would? We did.

And now the tournament proper is under way, with a fair bit of drama already. Would Broad have made a fuss about the lightning if the shoes was on the other foot, d'you think?

Who do you think will make it to the semi-finals? So far, our predictions of the Windies and Australia doing well and India being rubbish are not working out so well...

Team C365,

IPL is terribly boring at the moment - no real appeal like previous years. Same old same old . . .

Hey Ed slow day at the ofice. Apologies for assuming it was you that was uploading comments but this page used to be burning with posts last year when I joined here.

1. Anyways who do you support in terms of internation Test Cricket?
2. Is there just one of you or more?

The editor says.... People tend to comment on our stuff via Twitter/FB these days. Modern times, I suppose. There are a few of us, but two that do most of the work. As for international support, we're completely objective and support cricket in general;)

Is it just me or does this forum not get updated that often anymore?

The editor says.... Nobody around during the IPL.

@Kenobee, I would not recall Kohli being arrogant, it is just the ex players and media that gives players such as Kohli that type of tag, Kohli has acted in a manner that has helped his game, he may come across as arrogant but he certainly never has been, every player has the right to celebrate in whatever manner he wants.

Kohli and AB are the 2 complete batsman in world cricket,. but KOHLI in ODI edges AB, stats will prove that as well! AB has more shots he has come up with but that is not what counts, stats do!

Kids have a wonderful sense of humour don't they, my wife got some magazine from my daughter in south Africa, I think it is called You or something to that effect - and well well in the middle pages huge accolades of Smith which I was to be shown - nice!

Kohli used to be arrogant and pompous brat but scored runs. Now he scores runs minus the airy roars. Dare I say that has helped him. He has performed in all situations, all countries, all formats and against almost all the opposition that exists. Show me a better batsmen in the current game than him right now. Except AB but he does not count for the fact the he is not human.

@Mitch - Smith is ALREADY a great. Ask your son he will provide you with all the stats . . .

@3rd_man, Kohli is not arrogant, he is just full of confidence, if he was arrogant he would have made many runs that he has thus far, he has got immense passion for the game and hunger, every team would want an individual who has of fire in them! Some may say he goes over the top, but I have no problem with his passion, he has still not been any kind of trouble with the ICC because it is all within the game and spirit he plays in! His ODI career is already so great that even if he was not make a single run in his rest of his career he would still go down as an ODI great, that is how much he has achieved in ODI so far!

In tests he is getting better and better, he is the most complete batsman of this generation now alongside AB!

Dare I say I called Sri Lanka to win this tournament after the first game they played? Let none question my predictions moving forward.

Pom please try to not personally insult me for posting this...thanks ahead of time.

Very good Twenty20 World Cup that was, congrats to Sri Lanka who deserved to win the Final, not sure what Yuvi was thinking, it is time for Yuvraj to make way for another player, Yuvraj not the player he once was, he should go gracefully now! Everyone will cherish the memorable memories Yuvraj has given us as Indian fans and world cricket, but time is up for him now, he must be replaced.!!!!

@3rd man - so Kholi can be a great if he reigns in his arrogance, funny comment from a Smith worshipper.
