World Cup results so far
Posted by redracer on April 7, 2007
After the first week or so of the World Cup ‘Super 8’ finals, we have had the following results …
So Australia have easily won their games, and other main winners are South Africa, Sri Lanka & New Zealand. The ‘home team’ have easily lost ALL their games so far 😳
Highlights so far are …
- Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga with an international world-first so-called ‘double hat trick’, meaning 4 wickets from 4 balls!!! I would have thought a double hat trick would be 6 wickets, seeing one hat trick is 3 wickets and double 3 is 6, but then again seeing it has never happened before, they probably didn’t know what to call it. Unfortunately for the poor bugger, they didn’t even win the game 🙂
- Australia’s fabulous Matthew Hayden with 158 against the West Indies off 143 balls, and Glenn McGrath reaching the all-time highest World Cup wicket record of 55, previously held by Pakistan bowling great Wasim Akram.
Sri Lanka, having played one extra game, are on top of the table with 6 points, followed by Australia, South Africa & New Zealand on 4 points, England on 2 points, and Bangladesh, Ireland & the West Indies on ZERO!!!
