Joey Rasdien's Five-For

A World Cup of centuries running towards the finish line.

Joey's #FiveFor included the following...

1) WORLD CUP OF HUNDREDS So in 2011 24 hundreds scored but this world cup 29 have been scored so far with13 games left. Seems like 20/20 cricket made a huge impact on the game.

2) AB factor. Although Fudgie played an outstanding innings against a not so outstanding team it's been a while since I have watched a where South Africa won and AB was the man of the match. Let's think when was the last time he didn't play? Maybe that's the last time he wasn't man of the match if we actually won that game.

3) UAE PLAYERS. The UAE players looked like they were the guys that were busy building all those buildings in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and when it was time to go home the administrators asked if they could play cricket. If found out that they could play their passports were withheld and cricket teams were then formed. At least they have lifetime Visa now because apparently if you not an Arab you can't get UAE citizenship.

4) Credit must go to Kumar Sangakarra and the Sri Lanka team management. They always understood that experience and class will always topple form. As in the case with the previous World Cup campaigns they always had three experienced players whether they were on top form or not going into the tournament. Arivnda Da Silva, Arjuna Ranatunga, Muttiah Murilitharan, Chaminda Vaas etc. In this year's tournament they have Dilshan who is almost 40, Jawardene 39 and Sangakarra 38. Prior to the tournament Kumar had a horrendous time in NZ but the selectors stuck with him and he scores 4 100s in a row at a World Cup. Wonder why we didn't convince King Kallis to stay on.

5) So it's crunch time for West Indies. They need to beat UAE convincingly to up their net run rate and hope the game between Pakistan and Ireland is a low scoring affair with the winner of that game advancing with them to the knock out stage. Funny how it affairs and numbers always determine where one end up.
