How the Super 8s work

The way the Super 8s work is that all eight teams play each other once and the top four go through to the semi finals.

Where two teams have played each other already in the previous round, that result is used and they don't play again, so effectively this round's already started.

We've been staring at this post for about ten minutes now and we've nothing to add to make it any better. Is it just us, or is our World Cup coverage painfully below par? Maybe we're still smarting from Rob Key's omission from England's World Cup squad.

Well, I shouldn't feel too bad, the most, errrrr, interesting stuff about this world cup has been all over the mainstream media, so saturation must occur.

Cricket wise, the competition has really ony just got going. All be it without two of the potentially most interesting sides.

Actually, do feel bad. It's a bag of w*nk.

We've a theory that the site's at its best when there's no cricket on at all.

The World Cup could prove a difficult time by that logic.

Okay, to liven up the boredom then...

If you could be any cricketer, who would it be?

It has to be a current cricketer, and you've got to take the rough with the smooth -- e.g. if Murali, you're going to have to live with millions of misguided Aussies accusing you of chucking, while you're going to have to eat a lot of pies if you're going to be Rob Key.

I think I'd want to be Lara, Murali or Vettori. Because they're ace.

Possibly Collingwood, but I'd have to be allowed some hair dye.

EXCELLENT question.

Obviously we wouldn't want to be Rob Key because we're barely fit to bask in his eternal glory, like the worthless underlings we are.

Lara's life sounds a bit stressful. We're not big on stress. Chris Gayle's an alternative. Being Chris Gayle looks like it'd be a laugh.

Can we go for Tony Cottey, formerly of Glamorgan?

Not really.

Murali. How can one man possibly be so happy?

There's simply no alternative.

Talking of World Cup coverage, you could write about Hayden's century against South Africa. Frankly, I was expecting a post on it any day now.

Sorry, what was that? Hayden's what against whom?

Nope, don't remember anything as outlandish as that happening.

I'd be WC Grace. Beards rock.

The campaign for more beards in cricket starts now.
(Well done Pakistan, may your regiously inspired beards be, in turn, an inspiration to the reast of the cricketing world, regardless of faith)

Gaah, long day.

You all know I meant Gracie Fields,

Sing along now!
"For years we 'ad an Aspidistra
In a flowerpot,
On the What-not, near the 'at stand in the 'all.
It didn't seem to grow,
Till one day our Brother Joe,
Had a notion that he'd make it strong and tall.
So 'e crossed it with an acorn from an oak tree,
And 'e planted it against the garden wall."
