That New Zealand would not win the semi final against Sri Lanka was not a big event for many had already calculated Sri Lanka already in the final. Besides New Zealand itself played as a underdog. I watched the match keenly. particularly the second half when the Kiwis were bowling. They played real cricket. The one six and two fours at the ending overs of the match turned the match towards the Lankans camp or else it would have been New Zealand playing the final. Their fielding was superb and only one thing lacked was their wicket taking bowlers. What do you folks say?

Hiya kraj, Never get to s4ee any Cricket and my Husband likes to see that but no way can you get to see it unless you are willing to pay for all the other Channels that go with the Package and it´s robbery most of the time. Here it´s mostly Tennis and Football and Cycling that you can watch for free well almost free. I think that they are all great Teams playing together I did used to get to watch them for a while in England. I never cheered for either side I just like watching them play that´s all. My Husband sustains an injury from playing Cricket ages ago and not wearing the Leg Protectors but he could run like the wind you see and loved to play the game when he could. Hope you are well take care now.

Hi lovingangel, I know your country does not have that popularity for cricket that we Indians, Pakistanis, Srilankans, Bangladeshishs, Afghanistanis have. Even we have to pay for cricket as they come in different packages. But we do not mind including it in the menu. Now we have thre different formats of this game - Test Match, 50 -60 match and T- 20. People are getting mad for the T 20 format. Thank for dropping take care.

Hiya kraj, I wish they did have it on though on the Television I mean. I think that they can get it on the Coast or if you have a Satellite Dish of your own. We used to have to play Cricket at School that´s where I got to like the Game and played it in the Back Garden as well. England is never without Cricket on the Television or being played locally as well. I think that it´s a great Game and brings People together from all over the World. Nice chatting to you kraj.

Yes I also seen yesterday match and New Zealand really played well only due to last over Shrilank won otherwise New Zealand can also win. Their fielding is also good because the in between ball and rund first difference is 40 but afterword this different is less and only 15 ball more. what about today match

Hi, Yes, only the last two overs changed the color of the game for the New Zealand. Firstly thy came to the contest from a zero and were almost on the verge of a win but it was not in their fate and hence lost the match.

I think New zealand had a great world cup. No one really picked them to make the semis based on their form coming into the world cup. But they played above themselves and caused one of the biggest upsets when they beat Pakistan in the league stages and then caused a bigger one when they beat South Africa in the knockouts. Of course, beating Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka was a bit beyond them, but most teams struggle to do that. So for me they had a great cricket world cup. Cheers! Ram

Hi ram, Yes, you said it. They played the real world cup matches. Beating the two giants was never expected but they did and you saw yesterday how disciplined they were until the lst two overs that allowed one six and two fours which turned the game in SL's favour or else ...

Hi Rajib I had expected the unexpeced and vouched for the NZ Win as I was believing that the WC history will get repeated - NZ being the only non hosting nation would get them the cup because only a few hosting nations have won the cup. But the game in question was a great one and I can say a great for the Semis. They made the SL team play hard and did give a tough fightback. Tough I did not see it on TV (as we dont have one) still, I followed it on cricinfo and going by the way things turned out it would have been a really exciting treat to watch.

Hi thesids, Exactly. I too wanted the same. Without being biased that an Asian country or a host country should fight for the cup I would love if the kiwis had won. And yes man, they really made SL swat to win the game. At one time when all thought that it is an easy sail for SL but no, they got into the final by real hard work and by chance as well.
