Choking and joking is the summary of quater final stage at this world cup.

March 26, 2011 11:35am CST
We saw some good matches at group stage in between some boring matches against minnows .But whenever two good teams played against each other we saw some very good cricket so i was hoping that when good teams will play against each other we will see some intense cricket and close encounters but only India-Aus match was good ,two matches were completely one sided and in one match SA choked. Matches involving England and WI were really nothing more than a joke.No intent or resistance shown by WI and England , they just allowed the opposition to destroy them which was ridiculous to see.In SA NZ match , SA gave NZ a Christmas gift 9 months before Christmas as the way the played against India they really looked unbeatable and quite franly their team was very good with strong bowling and batting .So what do you think can be reason of this disappointing performance of SA ,England and WI in quarter finals.With WI it was expected as they are poor team but i really expected a lot more from SA and England , i hope we see some good cricket in three matches to come.Please share your views.

Hi Yes, we have really seen some worst quarter final matches in this world cup. The one between England and Sri Lanka was the worst and also the one between NZ and SA was probably FIXED, the way SA played.

What to say about this? the West indies team is useless so i not gon talk off it as they were trash like what did by pakistan. England hey they never learn to play cricket even after originating it. It was shameful performance by the bowlers , they simply give the game to Sri lanka. other two quarter final was little tight one.. sorry for south africa they did the same mistake all and all! woh my god when will they win a big game? IT was not like the way they lost. INDIA aus match was decent fight as both team had grip over the match and it lastly won by INDIA.
