Considering how quickly the new lower tier at Twickenham is going up its clear that there is still time for venues no matter how far they have come.
these grounds are more comparable to such a lower tier that the completion of the entire stand.

Anyway, as a huge cricket fan I am just glad theyre getting these venues built (and I couldnt care less as to when theyre finished since I consider the world cup completly irrelevant)

Oz took the Springboks to the cleaners today. Incredible performance. Looks like they have just been 'foxing' with the Saffers until now.

The SA bowling needs to take a good hard look at itself.

As for Ponting, there is no competition now. Hail the no.1 batsman in the world. Tendulkar, exit stage right!

I take it you're still watching...?!

Aus 434-4 (50 overs) Ponting 164 off 105 balls

SA currently 279-2 (30 overs) Gibbs 156* off 104 balls

I can't take my eyes off it - I'm supposed to be watching the France v England Six Nations in 20 minutes but it's going to have to be time-delayed now!!

Bloody amazing game.

I hate South African's but I was cheering them for every run. Superb Game. Totally messed up my day, I was due to do loads of work but stayed in and watched instead.

Well done South African Cricket team you are now officially legends.

Went to bed after the Aussie innings. Shocked to see the result to be honest. Well done SA. Didn't think they had it in them.

What is up with the Jo burg pitch. In the WC final in 2003 a load of runs were scored on it, now this. It must be the flattest wicket in the world.

Now onto the tests when the real stuff begins.

BTW, the Guyana Cricket Ground looks like nothing has been done to it in 6 months. No progress at all.

They are still on Carribean time over there by the looks of it.

The World Cup should be stage in Oz in 2007. Dunno whose idea it was to go to the Windies. It looks like being a shimozzle over there. Really cheapening the tournament.

The finals should only have the 8 best teams with everyone playing each other once, semi finals for the top 4 to decide the 2 finalists. It is daft having 10 or more nations in it. What possible benefit is having a Holland or Canada in it?

Went to the Oz v. Kenya game in Durban during that World Cup. Lucky for me, SA was bundled out and the "strongest" team from Africa Oz had to defeat was Kenya so you could get tickets for half the price of face value.

The world cup should be like the 1992 format. 10, 12 or more teams is too many with too many dead games.

The best World Cup ever was the 1992.

One thing i prefer is that any sort of world cup should be hosted by one nation only, but with the West Indies i suppose, is a special case.
