Re: World Cup 2019

Can Pandya continue to bowl his remaining quota with that injury? If he doesn’t who will bowl his remaining overs?

Re: World Cup 2019

India got just 2 days of recovery time for semis while England got a full week but if we can pass that hurdle we get more time for Finals

Re: World Cup 2019

NRR is as good a tiebreaker as cricket allows for. I won’t agree especially when a match happened between the two nations in round robin then that should be tie breaker first , if that match is washed out then there should be tie breaker with NRR, Pak has every right to feel the rules weren’t matur...

Re: World Cup 2019

Yes to reach semis Pak has to post out if the world scores like 500 or so and if Bangla bat first pak will be eliminated without even a ball being bowled

Re: World Cup 2019

You can bet if Rahul doesn’t perform today also he may get injured! Team management has clearly conveyed to team “perform or get injured (oops perish)”

But this kind of approach is exactly what nips budding careers with its emotional toll to the players.

Re: World Cup 2019

Let me try making predictions from now on.Bangla is going to win at least one of its 2 matches, NZ will win its on England and Australia, NewZealand, India and Bangla will be into Semis. Australia will win its match against Bangla and India will lose its with NZ. Final will be an All Ausralian (cont...

Re: World Cup 2019

Would be great if SL or Bangladesh can come through. If we beat England, perhaps we can play our bench against Bangladesh and SL... By asking to play our regular squad with England and our bench against Bangla and SL you seem to imply that we need to take it easy against them so that one of them ca...

Re: World Cup 2019

This win is going to eclipse several weaknesses india has which will come out when india needs to chase any decent score. If team management is serious about winning the Cup then they need to think out of box and come out of age old paradigms like winning combination should not be changed etc...K L ...

Re: World Cup 2019

Hope team management noticed two missed stumping chances WI missed before he compensated in the end, any decent team reaching elimination won’t miss such chances.

Re: World Cup 2019

Dhoni is so far going fifty -ish , sorry we have a better phrase for it, Gavaskarish strike rate :tomato:

I got a feeling that WI wicket keeper is missing Dhoni stumping intentionally. Hope missed it twice ! Any thoughts?

Re: World Cup 2019

I like it if two teams from sub continent can sneak into semis and I don’t mind even if Pak is one in the mix as long as India can also make it. In Soccer world cups also I used to wish 2 teams from Europe and 2 from South America would make to semis, never liked it to be an all European affair

Re: World Cup 2019

So much for the invincible NZ.I think the scheduling made it possible for them to remain undefeated so far...Lanka, Bangla, Afghan, SA, WI of these which one do we consider strong side? SA is not the side it used to be and won only one match so far against Afghans.The only strong contender India mat...
