THE EVENTS of the past few days have demonstrated there are no predictable results in Cricket World Cup 2007.
As West Indies prepare to face Zimbabwe at Sabina Park today, they would have sat back and taken note of what Ireland did to Pakistan and what Bangladesh did to India on Saturday.
The shock results have thrown the notion through the window that the majority of group stage matches were going to be predictable with results in favour of the eight leading international nations against the fledgling countries.
Against that background, West Indies captain Brian Lara is not under-estimating either Zimbabwe or Ireland.
"It's going to be very competitive. Zimbabwe and Ireland have shown they cannot be taken lightly," Lara said yesterday.
"We're going to play the game with the same gusto like we had against Pakistan. A win tomorrow [today] will put us into the second stage, but it doesn't mean we have any points as yet.
"We've got a very important two games left and we're going to take each game one at a time." < Read more >
