World Cup

So, we are two days (and almost four games) into the tournament. Was very impressed with NZ start. McCallum & Guptill's opening partnership of 111 (in 16 overs) would have settled the nerves.  Williamson wasn't at his best, and still made 50 odd, Daniel Vettori was impressive with the ball and Anderson didn't let the momentum change when he came out to bat.  Important to mention that in the game Sangakkara became the second highest scorer in ODI Cricket, moving past Ricky Ponting.

The BlackCaps play Scotland on Tuesday.

Australia started really well too. I felt for Taylor, given the circumstance of the ending of the game (He handled himself really well).

South Africa highlighted why they are among the favourites, with a brilliant partnership of 256 between Duminy and Miller guiding them from 4/83 to over 300.  The South African's scored 146 off the last 10 overs,

And in the game that just finished, India had too much for Pakistan. With Kohli making another hundred.

Tomorrow sees Ireland and the West Indies play, should be an interesting contest.

And while we are talking about Cricket, the White Ferns (the Women's team) had a 9 wicket win against England, taking a 2-1 series lead
