You should easily be able to pick up day five tickets. Always less sales for fifth day of a test. Although oval does usually go the five.

i am impressed by this new look Warner, who played a very non warner innings.

If the Sun comes out more it will be a batsman's world cup and the weather forecast looks good for next two weeks, so bit of wait and see I suppose

The last few games have shown the big drawback to the One Group format: the fact that the weaker teams will just roll around the venues for a month getting beat. You don’t get the flushing effect that mini-groups provide.

Afghanistan at least look spirited and entertaining, even though they aren't going to win much. Which is more than can be said for Pakistan on the basis of their first match.

I was very impressed by their bowling and fielding. I can see them winning couple of games and they can cause an upset which is good for the game

I thought they played very well, although their keeper looks a bit iffy.

Aussies look strong, way better than last year.

Would love to, so long as he didn't bring the sandpaper he claimed to not know about. That might make him angry.

Starc is a very good bowler but I do wish he would cut out the trying to be a bad man routine, he’s as about as intimidating as a rice pudding

No you wouldn't.

Mike Atherton, James Anderson, Stuart Broad and the rest of the mint sucking, dirt in pocket brigade might be in denial as well. Thank god for Mark Trescothick hey. At least one of your lot was honest about it all.

The format of the World Cup is always going to be a tricky one because there is not a one-size fits all solution.

Option One

You could have a 16-Team World Cup which is the current ODI Ranking list from the ICC. 4 groups of 4 - with the top two going through to the Quarters.

England, India, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, West Indies, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, Ireland, Scotland, Nepal, UAE & Papua New Guinea would be the current list.

Option Two

You could have the current format where you run the risk of some "minnows" turning up to put in spirited performances 9x in a row for no actual results.

Option Three

I quite like the idea of having competitions within competitions though.

There are currently 12 teams with Full ICC Ranking status (for Test/ODI/T20):

Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies & Zimbabwe

There a further 4 teams with Associate ODI Status:

Holland, Nepal, Scotland & UAE.

I would split the top 8 in the rankings - Group A, who play in a round-robin (7 matches) and the bottom 8 in the rankings/associates - Group B, who play in a round-robin (7 matches).

The top 5 from the top 8 group and the top 3 from the bottom 8 group would then go into a seeded quarter-final, semi-final etc. route:

1st A vs. 3rd B
2nd A vs. 2nd B
3rd A vs. 1st B
4th A vs. 5th A
