View Full Version : Kenya is almost in Semi Final

March 4, 2003, 12:42 PM
Kenya is topping the point table of pool B qualifying
teams - They won against other two qualifiers (SL and NZ-technically) and carried 4 points for each win and also won two matches (Ban & Can)
against the non-qualifiers and carried 1 point each for those. Here is the point table:
Pool A:

Aus 12
Ind 8
Zim 3.5

Pool B:

Ken 10
SL 7.5
NZ 4

So NZ or Zim are far behind than Kenya. Even if Kenya loses all three of their matches in Super Six - NZ and Zim need at least two wins in their matches in super six to cross Kenya's point - which could be difficult. In that case Kenya will be playing semi-final.
Can you believe that?

...maybe they can spring another surprise, and go on to win the whole thing. Who cares? Bangladesh is out, it doesn't matter any more.

I am sure that beating sri lanka bangladesh and canada doesnt make a team good enough to be in semi finals.

If they had beaten the windies i wudnt be saying this.

The world cup rules are all screwed up big time.

And guess what, if there is a washout in a semi final between nz or sri lanka, kenya may go to the final.

Somethigns needs to be done about washouts.

Shubho summed it up but still, the rules are useless.

just to reitterate (sp) - Bangladesh is out, who cares.

I think cricket rules in general suck. Rain seems to be as important as batting or bowling or fielding. SO what if they postpone a match and play a few overs on a rain date. Conditions may be different but so what? SOuth Africa not moving through is a travesty.

Instead of worrying too much about kenya and the world cup rules, what can we do to better bangaldeshi cricket?

has anyone died yet back home over this?
