Do you have any contact in media or press? If someone's friend is working somewhere, then that would be awesome. Otherwise, the work will be pending.
I need this to publish news about our community events on leading newspapers mostly, so that we will get a visibility in my state Odisha. By this, we can attract the IT Professionals and other companies for support and collaboration with the community. Our community name is "Microsoft Dev Community, Odisha" - http://msdcodisha.com/[^].
We are also accepting Speaker Nominations for our upcoming events. If anyone of you is interested, please drop a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us about you, your work, skills and what topics you can speak on and anything else if you want to.
Yeah I've seen it plenty of times when England are in places like Australia, they just aren't up for it and will never win a game, at least we're better than Scotland
You're dead right about the tactics though. Bell would be OK as he is if there were bigger hitters playing around him. Can you believe we had Cook & Bell opening a few weeks before this tournament started. I read KP's autobiography and he says that the IPL has moved the one day game forward and where England are not really a part of it they have missed the boat a bit and their tactics are lacking as a result.
I've got a feeling Ireland might spring a surprise tonight, Ireland might be really up for it and India maybe relaxed as already through.
I would agree to both your remarks.
It would be great if NZ can win. However, I don't expect them to reach the finals (possibly the semis as well).
The only advantage they may have is they play the quarterfinal at home. But I would expect Pakistan to win.
I remember Kenya reaching a world cup semi-final a few years ago.
Sad part is they don't even qualify for the World Cup anymore. Tragedy really.
Kenya's story is tragic, but compared to football, cricket is remarkably stable, thanks to a small core group which are by definition part of the WC. The core group also try very hard to keep the spoils and keep the outsiders out. It's a shame, really - look how many players Ireland have lost to England, because the players aspire to play Tests. Their captain's an Irishman!
Look at football - only the host is guaranteed a spot, even the defending champions may not be present to defend their title! Save a small core group (Brazil, Germany and maybe a couple of others - and they too, are present by merit and not by virtue of being the big boys at the table), the participation varies greatly from one edition to the next.
