Cricket World Cup thoughts

Here are a few of my World Cup thoughts that have appeared elsewhere:

Fixing the World Cup format

The biggest problem with the cricket World Cup is its format.

Two groups of seven teams with the top four qualifying for the quarter finals is junk. With six group stage games, three wins should see you through to the knock out rounds.

There is too little riding on each of the group games with qualification for the quarter finals too easy to achieve. It makes the group stage a phoney war. Having weaker nations play six games each is also far from ideal as it diminishes the quality of the product on offer.
