Do we have a chance to b 5th if we beat WI,
This is the point table-

<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=510 border=0><TBODY><TR class=fotdbg1><TD class=linetd2 align=left width="44%"> England</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>6</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>2</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>0</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>4</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>-0.44</TD><TD class=linetd3 align=middle>4</TD></TR><TR class=fotdbg1><TD class=linetd2 align=left width="44%">http://cricketworldcup.indya.com/images/flags/tinyflags/West%20Indies.jpg West Indies</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>5</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>1</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>0</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>4</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>-1.21</TD><TD class=linetd3 align=middle>2</TD></TR><TR class=fotdbg1><TD class=linetd2 align=left width="44%">http://cricketworldcup.indya.com/images/flags/tinyflags/Bangladesh.jpg Bangladesh</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>6</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>1</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>0</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>5</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>-1.44</TD><TD class=linetd3 align=middle>2</TD></TR><TR class=fotdbg1><TD class=linetd2 align=left width="44%">http://cricketworldcup.indya.com/images/flags/tinyflags/Ireland.jpg Ireland</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>7</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>1</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>0</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>6</TD><TD class=linetd2 align=middle>-1.73</TD><TD class=linetd3 align=middle>2</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

If we beat WI by like that-
Bd- 250, 50 over
WI- 170, 40 over
Then our run-rate will b + 0.16,

Its look we r dreaming...:smug:

The margin has to be huge.
Something like BD 350 - WI 150, then WI 300 - Eng 100.

Or WI 50 all out BD 50 in 5 overs.
Eng 100 allout WI 100 15 overs.

Your calculation is way wrong. It not the RR it is the NRR.
BD's NNR would then: (953+250)/318 - (1168+170)/284 = 3.78 - 4.71 = (-.93) It would be a miracle for us to get to the plus column.

PLus England has a match against West Indies and if England wins then they will get 5th. We really messed up by losing to Ireland.

We can probably finish 6th, but 5th is a stretch. I'll be happy as long as we beat WI and not finish last.

we can be 6th i guess. England has another match to go. sixth is good position to finish up, and we would get $200k

we need 67 runs to avoid 8th place finish. with 2 points one shouldn't dream of 6th or 5th place.

That's way too much to ask for. 67 runs? Yea right. The top batsmen scored 45 losing 5 wickets. What a shame. We're shameless, and we shouldn't be playing at this level. We play like school cricketers.

I was controlling my anger all these days. And now there is a sudden outbirst. Expect more of such comments to come.
