An important announcement: Based on conversations with few members, I found that may be few non CP members are part of this league. Sorry, but we are not open to non-members and would like to confirm about them before the final standings. Following are the few unknowns to me or people I had a talk. In case someone knows them as a member or the member himself is reading his name in the list below, please reply back to retain your name in the CPFL.
I feel very happy to finish 3rd before finals. I really lost interest after India knocked out . I don't mind if you remove me form the CPFL, as I will lose only one day of excitement which is very small in front of the thing I got whole tournament. By the way I am member of the Code Project from past 3 years.
Definitely not. It was not to hurt or remove you - idea was to make sure we have only CP members.

We are happy to have you in CP & CPFL. It's just that, we have not seen too many posts from you throughout. Further, I did a search of your name before shortlisting and could not specifically find you. There were quite a few Arun's registered.

You have achieved super, no doubt about it. And even in that one day match (today), you can defeat PompeBhai and secure 2nd position. I see you have 3 changes left with you and is a good opportunity.
Please don't feel bad for asking if you were a CP member. Just didn't wanted any outsider to play along within us.
There was one match (2nd semi-final) played today in the knockouts:
Match #1: Australia v West Indies - West Indies won by 74 runs West Indies: 205/4 (20 overs) [C Gayle 75(41), P Cummins 4-0-32-2] Australia: 131 (16.4 overs) [G Bailey 63(29), R Rampaul 3.4-0-16-3] MOM: C Gayle [for his 75(41)]
Finally, Knockouts standing in CPFL - Sandeep, Badar, Abhinav & Wayne were the players of the day:
I think that when 2 cats fight, the monkey will always win.
The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.
I would say... Pak-Aus planned SA-Ind out of the Super 8's and they got back what they deserved.
Overall, deserving teams are in finals (based on how they played in the tournament so far). Now, I would like WI to win the cup... after a long long time... will do good for the cricket and West Indies.
