Cup of Life, or Cup of woe?

Tony Cozier's article at the cricinfo website makes for interesting reading. Starting from hotel fires to underprepared pitches and "work in progress" at the match venues, along with dissenting feelings of players and officials thrown in, it appears that this edition of the World Cup is doomed to failure right from the beginning.

However, I have a sneaking feeling that this world cup will actually turn out to be a grand success for cricket and the goof ups will be effectively consigned to the dustbin. Much of this feeling has to do with the jolly good natured approach to life adopted by the denizens of Caribbean Islands. Here's hoping the Windies do well in the World Cup ... and the Indian team lifts the trophy :-)
