World cup almost over for India

Recommended Posts

It's not over

 

We just need to win all the remaining games and quite handsomely.


There is hope.

If you have to say that Ind has to not only win but win quite handsomely, it means that the work is cut out for India 

Even with 3 wins, it could be difficult as:

a) NZ beats - Ind, BD and Pak = 3 wins

b) Aus beats - BD, NZ and Pak = 3 wins

c) Ind beats - BD, Pak and Aus = 3 wins 

It is hard to cover up a 47 runs loss in terms of NRR in 3 games

Ind chances depends up on:

a) It winning the remaining games 

b) Ind's neighbors - Tigers and Markhors if they manage to upset both or one of Aus or NZ

Its quite simple actually

5 teams, 2 qualify,  10 matches in the group

With such a hopeles run rate,  the only combinations i think would work for us are:

The numbers indicate wins

4  3  2  1  0

3  3  2  2  0

3  3  2  1  1 

With us winning 3 matches.  So things are totally beyond our control.

I see it as India have to beat BD, Pak, Aus = 3 Wins

Australia beat BD, NZ and Pak = 3 Wins

NZ beat India, BD but lose to Pak and Aus = 2 Wins

Pak beat NZ, BD but lose to India and Aus = 2 Wins

BD lose all = 0 wins

Still not there dependence scenario...Win remaining games is all that need with some good margin.

If Indian batting is going to struggle against firaangi NZ spinners on Indian pitches, and let NZ spinners outspin Indian spinners at Home, then this is a deserving outcome.

And this is no Shane Warne Aus, just a spirited NZ - but to lose to their spinners!?

Yes ..... and it depends up on how other teams do 

And it could even go this way:

Ind beats BD and Pak, but loses to Aus and NZ = 2 wins

NZ beats Ind and BD, but loses to Aus and Pak = 2 wins

Pak beats NZ, but loses to BD Aus and Ind = 1 wins

BD beats Pak, but loses to NZ, Aus and Ind = 1 win

Aus wins all four so again it could be NZ vs. Ind decided on NRR

So all in all its between NZ Aus and India to fight for the two spots. We might as well pack our bags and walk back home via Wagah border.

Rest all are must win games...

 

Road to glory 2007...Bhul gye kya???

We lost by 16 runs to NZ in 2007, not bad enough to be knocked out. This time, we have done enough damage to be kicked out. Even there, we beat SA handsomely to qualify.

If Ind are knocked out, massive losses will be incurred for the ICC and broadcasters Star Sports.

Only positive is that if Ind somehow does quality (esp. by winning all the remaining games handsomely), some of the guys would have put in awesome performances! 

 

If others except Kohli don't step up, India can bid goodbye to their chances. The likes of Pandya, Yuvi have to step up.

India are in a really tough group. All teams are good teams. No breathing space here. One huge loss like today and we will find it very tough to make a comeback. The pressure will be huge in the coming matches. Lets hope our boys are up to it.

At least all the hype that we are the best team and the media crowning us as the next champions has come crashing down to earth. I always believed that there are many contenders for the title and India may not match their batting abilities.

The loss would have not mattered much in terms of qualification, but a massive loss does, despite a low scoring game, India's NRR is -2.5. That is just huge. 

In this tough group inevitable all teams will loose and win some but only 2 out of 5 go through and NRR will come into play.

As I see it, hunters got hoodwinked by kiwis and now on the ropes. Every match India will be under pressure to win big, hence more pressure on Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli.

Yeah pretty much win all the games and obliterate a couple of teams along the way as well. India can still go through.  The early loss is out of the way and team has no option other than to win now.

guys are jumping the boat too soon. There is a very high possibility that both PAK and BD might (infact most likely will) cause upsets therefore the floor is open for us to qualify still with or without the RR issue.

This loss reminded me of the loss to SL in the 1996 WC SF .... that was a pathetic performance as well :((

I was getting the same feeling. I was too young to understand what was going on then. It was just like this, suddenly taking the wind out of the sails.

Yes, it is how many games BD and Pak win would matter more 

But how knows, both of them could even win enough to qualify from G2 :cantstop:

It was a bad toss to lose. What a horible pitch

This time the pitch was prepared by ICC. So when Vidharbha curator prepared it last year for the test against SA, it was not in the spirit of the game, but its alright if ICC does that. Pure double standards.
