An ending and a beginning?

Sorry for not keeping on top of my "captain's logs" yesterday. Friends came over, wine bottles opened, I lost the plot. So did the match officials apparently. Bully for them. Why let this bizarre World Cup end with a normal finish? Anyway, one quick suggestion for the next one. The ICC and member nations should get together to agree on some sort of points system (with seedings thrown in so that wins away against higher-seeded teams count more and so on) to attach to one-day internationals played between now and the next World Cup. Use those points as a qualifying system so that next time around, only six nations play. Those six play each other in a round-robin format. Two teams qualify for the final. Period. Lemme know what you think.

Its a thought Samir ...

However, commerce will probably make sure that we'll have to devise recipe that have India and Pakistan as the main ingredients and anything else to garnish as per taste.

No coincidence that the Twenty20 draw released just after India and Pakistan had been minnowed this orld cup have been drawn in the same group. That way, there sure is at least one big draw game and SetMax or Subhash Chandra or Neo or TenSports or whoever wins the lottery at least doesnt have to worry about mundane things like the betterment of the sport...
