Has a World Cup ever begun with as many nailbiters as this edition? Namibia set the tone for the first round with a 55-run thrashing of Sri Lanka before being knocked out of the tournament themselves. Two-time champions West Indies crashed out without getting a foot into the Super 12s after losing to both Scotland and Ireland. With the main round kicking off next week, here are all the stories and interviews to catch up on this week.

Tangeni Lungameni is making up for lost time: 'You've got to be in the system to change it'

Jayaditya Gupta writes about how Ganguly came in with promises to make Indian cricket a better place but, his exit has only brought the realisation that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
