World cup almost over for India

Recommended Posts

That's not correct. The ball was hit hard and Yuvi had to dive to his right to save the boundary.

This is a different one mate. That was off Tamim on the other side. I missed this one.

I watched this one. The ball was traveling like a rocket and Yuvi had to lunge to his right again. Kohli and Ashwin started clapping. Jadeja and Pandya came up to Yuvi to pat his back for the effort. So two pieces of excellent fielding by Yuvi there.

Ind vs Aus is effectively a KO :glasses:

Both the teams would start out as equals, but Ind's team selection on a potential turning track, planning and captaincy = -5, so effectively Aus 55, Ind 45

All Asian teams except India knocked out... 

0 or 1 Asian teams qualify to semis in a WC happening in the sub continent... 

 

Edit : SL is not knocked out, but seem to have an outside chance

SL has their fate in their hands. If they beat Eng and SA, which is quite plausible on Indian pitches, they go through.

Posted the below on another thread, but will post here for quick reference for those who use this thread to see what the scenario is:

G1 (2nd position)

  • Eng enters if it beats SL 
  • SL enters if it beats both Eng and SA
  • If Eng, SL and SA somehow end up with equal wins, NRR would decide the 2nd position

Even the third scenario is very likely... SL beat Eng, and SA beat SL... then SA go through on NRR

As long as a team has not lost 3 games in its group and if enough matches are yet to be played, it should not lose hope .... The teams should remember how Pak sneaked in in '92 lol

As home team, India has first match on new venue every match where as the opponent has already played in the venue earlier...

Pak played a match in Kolkata before meeting India.

Bangladesh played a match in Bengaluru before meeting India

Australia played a match in Mohali and now play India at the same venue...

What a shitty itinerary... There's no home advantage... :facepalm:

Sneaking in to the knockouts has always been pak's specialty. The did the same in 2009, 2010 and 2012 WT20. IIRC in all these tourneys they sneaked through on NRR.

Well, today, we will know the answer as to how deep we will go in this tournament.

Unless it has a bad game, NZ probably has the best chance of winning it as 

  • plays Eng at Delhi
  • Plays WI/Aus/Ind at Kol

That's right. We should have aimed to top the group, but then the loss against NZ completely changed all equations. Now, we will have to be content with Wankhede should we qualify for the KOs.

Ind (Kohli) has been chasing well so playing at Mum is not an issue. It is just that WI can be too hot to handle on its day so the game depends more on how WI turns up

That's right. From today, if India have to win this World Twenty20, they will have to meet some tough opponents in possibly the toughest of conditions. Phew, if we get through this, we will be deserving champions.

Australia hot favourites, difficult to see India going through, none of the players clicking, got lucky against Bangla.

In 3 games, India have no batsman or bowler in top 10 (super 10 stages).

Australia have Khawaja, Smith, Maxwell, Watson all scoring runs, and Faulkner and Zampa taking plenty of wickets.

If India win World t20 2016, they will be undeserving.

Ind is good vs sub-continent teams as even if it makes mistake, it is let off or returned in kind .... captaincy / selection blunders are matched by similar blunders of the opponent 

Non-SC teams can make Ind pay for its mistakes (NZ already did). So if Ind goes on to win the tourney, it (or someone) would have played extremely well

It's not about fake fans...

The points being raised are valid and won't go away even India wins...

You Dhobi fans are hell bent on burning out Kohli... You selfish guys won't bother about how much pressure on Zkohli was... He was emotionally drained after the match but all you Dhobi suckers make merry...

Now the equation is simple for India. Win 2 more games and win the World Twenty20. 

 

Two very tough games await if we win tomorrow and if we win, we will be deserving champions. :isalute:

Looks like it will be over tommorow. One man (Virat Kohli) can do only this much.

 

Poor cricket by Rohit, Dhawan and Raina.

 

Raina will get shortball for sure tommorow again.
