Tough to see how Lebron is ahead of Federer or even Brady. Having the greatest Olympian of all time at #9 - ridiculous.

Feel bad for South Africa and especially the captain ABD ... But go black caps!

Great game ... Amazing finish!

I see a total of 325-350 if they don't get ABD out in the next few overs.

I agree that jadeja wouldn't count as quality spin in most situations. However, the South African spinners getting 7 wickets against Sri Lanka at the last match at the Sydney Cricket Ground might encourage the Indian spinners.

South Africa winning the toss (and batting first) gives them a big edge

SL batted so poorly that the SA batting was never put under pressure.

I picked the four semi finalists. The 'exceeded expectation' might be referring to them being 7-0 rather than them making the semi final.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||When was the last time that||
When was the last time that the South African batting did not collapse when put under pressure? SA's best hope has always been to bat first or to restrict their opposition to a really low score when batting second.

Smartcric dot com and cricfree dot tv are free options if you don't mind pop ups.

Yep, the Ind-SA match was unexpectedly one sided. It definitely gave India the belief and confidence. Should be a good game against Australia.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||I agree that the winner of||
I agree that the winner of the Aus-Ind match will be the favorite in the final (as they will be the home team or the de facto home team). It would have been different if the final were being played in NZ instead of at the MCG.

Dhoni is a great leader and one can definitely see the improvement in India's performances under his captaincy.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||An over consists of six balls||
An over consists of six balls (or pitches). A maiden is an over in which no runs have been scored.

I agree that on paper, Australia arguably have the best team.

T20 was introduced about a decade ago and is made for TV with its 3 hour duration and faster pace. The five day version is for purists and the One day version played in this World Cup is a balance between the other two.

One can purchase tickets for individual days or a pass for the entire test (at a discounted rate).

They stop for both lunch and tea if it is the longer 5 day version.

I find that cricket is quite easy to explain to an individual who knows baseball. There definitely are similarities. I think the lighted bails/ stumps were introduced a little over 2 years ago.

There are 3 versions of the game:
The world cup consists of One Day International contests lasting ~ 7 hours each.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||The semifinal against||
The semifinal against Australia will be a big test for the revitalized Indian bowling lineup that has been on a tear during this World Cup.

The next couple of games should help us calibrate our expectations for the rest of this year.

I agree. Horford's decision, not announcing today ... Not saying that it is a certainty mitch stays but there is no question on which side of the decision I would lay my money on.

A few more years like this and I might have to start caring for the NBA again. It would be interesting if one of them ends up with a contender.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||From a purely basketball||
From a purely basketball perspective, Nik is probably as ready as he could probably be (maybe he can bump his draft stock a few spots if at all by staying another year). I personally feel that GRIII is probably gone as well (I still see a chance for him to go in the late first round and if that is the grade he gets it might make sense for him personally to make the leap). I think Mitch is probably the biggest question mark because of the injury/possible draft concerns and he could seriously make a case for a top five pick next year if he has a great season.
