How the Syndey Morning Herald saw Australia's opening win against Scotland.
THE TARTAN Army doesn't follow cricket. It's more the Officer Training Corps with small checks - and big credit cards. And, in truth, the men who followed Scotland's cricketers to their first match in the World Cup were virgin soldiers - they've never had anywhere to follow the Scots before. So, for them, coming to Worcester to watch the boys play Australia, was a bit like the full-strength Tartan Army going to the Stade de France for the Brazil game. Pity is, to the seasoned follower Worcestershire's New Road ground is less of a Theatre of Dreams and more of a church hall of second thoughts.
How the Daily Record saw the same match.
KENYA CAPTAIN Asif Karim said his team was in a tough group, although the experience was invaluable. "We played well in patches," Karim said after yesterday's game. "I am sure our boys will learn a lot from these sort of tournaments."
