2015 ICC World Cup Quarter Finals: A Call For Writers

The Quarter Finals of the 2015 ICC World Cup get underway with #timehonored Sri Lankan run machine Kumar Sangakkara and a South African line up featuring probably the finest exponent of the limited overs caper – Abraham Benjamin de Villiers clashing at the SCG.

Of the remaining six nations, the Windies have made it through, as have the Indians, the Kiwis, the Pakistanis and the Bangladeshi’s making adding to the sub-continent domination of the tournament.

With the only hiccup being the thriller at Eden Park, the Australians led by Michael Clarke are a real show to win the tournament after three years of planning – not to mention an army of armchair selectors.
