Cricket World Cup Gets Underway

Just spent the day watching the opening match of the 2011 Cricket World Cup. It turned out to be a little boring to be honest. India scored 370/4 in the first innings with Bangladesh coming in and putting on a brave fight to finish on 283/9. Not to put Bangladesh down or anything... When the first team in whacks nearly 400 runs, it becomes a bit predictable. On only a handful of occasions did the second team in emerge victorious.

But, anyways, the CWC has started and life is better with it. It'll keep me occupied in case the 2011 Formula 1 season gets off to a bad start if Bahrain GP is cancelled.

I must say the scheduling is pretty stupid though this CWC. Tomorrow, Sunday, when nothing is happening on TV, they decide to stick through games with Canada an Kenya. I watched Canada play the Netherlands at the CWC in South Africa several years ago. It was fun, and the atmosphere was great. They actually played a really good game.

But when it's on TV and without the atmosphere in a freezing cold apartment in Brussels... Well, it just isn't the same! Annoyingly, all the interesting games are on weekdays for now, and in the mornings. Why?!
