Why Asian teams struggle to beat 2 SENA teams in back to back KOs in WCs?

Recommended Posts

Apart from 1983 (technically, Ind beat WI in the final as at that time it was WENA) and 1992 (Pak beat NZ & ENG), I haven’t seen Asian teams beat SENA teams (or even WI as if it is in KO, it would be playing good cricket) in 2 consecutive knockout games in world cups? 
 

Eng recently beat two Asian teams in back to back KOs game (3 if you count the game versus SL as a virtual KO).

2007 WT20 :-

 

After losing vs NZ,

 

Must win game vs England - WON

Must win game vs South Africa - WON

Must win game vs Australia - WON

Must win game vs Pakistan - WON

 

 

Only counting official KOs (though virtual KOs can be listed in brackets)

India beat Australia in 2011 QF and 2007 semis as well? SA in 2014 semis. England in 83 semis . Multiple times in various champions trophies. 

 

That is not back to back in the same tournament ... Only discussing WCs.

India have 8 wins over SENA in ICC knockouts and Pakistan have 5. Rest of the time, Indua usually hadn't been good enough.  

 

Arre bhai, why are you posting irrelevant stuff? ... This is discussing back to back KOs games in a single WC :facepalm:

Because to be honest,  it's a pretty meaningless stat to look at. Whenever India were strong/won, SENA teams never made it to the 2nd knockout again us- 1983, 2007, 2011. So what difference does it make?  Winning against SA in 2007 world t20 was a knockout match for us and then we had to beat Australia immediately after that. Even in '83 , that last group match against OZ was essentially a knockout .

Sl beat eng qf ,NZ sf  in 2011.

 

Also kind of in 96 ,eng qf and aus final.

 

That can be counted ... However, more interested in teams going on to win a tournament by beating 2 SENA teams in a row (esp. in SF & F). 

 

Appears to be a difficult task for Asian teams, which would ideally need to play another Asian team in SF & F to have a chance of winning the tournament :hmmm:

I am not sure you understand what is being discussed ... Also, the thread is not about India (but Asian teams in general).

And how many times have Sena countries won in such a way.

Would be similar for SENA teams esp. since they have usually missed out in Asian conditions, where there have not been too many tournaments apart from T20 WCs, which have been dominated by WI & SL, relatively speaking
