What a day of upsets Saturday was .I couldn't believe my ears when I heard that Ireland,yes Ireland had beaten the mighty Pakistanis.Even worse Pakistan the number 4 ranked ODI team is out of the tourney..Who woulda thunk it! Not me for sure even given the fact that Pakistan is as much an inconsistent team as West Indies.

Additionally, Bangladesh played out of their skins to beat India by 5 wickets. Gotta love the way Bangladesh is slowly getting a giant killer reputation by beating big teams like the Australians,Pakistanis and now the Indians.No wonder their grouping was called the Group of death because right now India is under some pressure to qualify.

I wonder what other upsets are in store in this upcoming week or even for the entire tourney. I bet some big name teams are all of a sudden much more cautious.It should make for some interesting times ahead. Won't it be cool if say Bangladesh were to lift the cup on April 28th? Okay, I may be getting ahead of myself but Saturday's games prove that the seemingly impossible can and do happen.

Side note..Really sad to hear of the death of Pakistan's coach Bob Woolmer. I'll always remember when he was South Africa's coach and he came up with the idea of having Hansie Cronje wear an ear piece so they could communicate.May his soul rest in peace.
