View Full Version : Warriors' chances for the semi's

From the current points table, I presume that (with many if's and but's)
1. The Warriors, the Badshahs and the Lions will contend for the fourth place.
2. In the Nov 2 games, Warriors will be most favored if
a. the Badshahs win (Lions lose). That will place four teams in the same points, and probably Warriors will have good run rate advantage.
b. the Champs beat Superstars (less likely), and the Champs are nearly out of contention.
3. Needless to say, we need to win all games forward. There are two of them.

What do you reckon, guys?

If the Badshahs win their match against Lions they will probably move above the Warriors due to better run rate (currently they have +0.404 compared to warriors +0.461).

We will be in the semis if we win our remaining two matches regardless of the outcome of the other matches.

If we can win both then we're making it to the semis for sure.

We need Bengal to slip up, their place is not confirmed yet and they have tough fixtures against Chennai and Heroes next. So we can actually finish third.

The game between the Badshahs and the Lions is going pretty well for us at the moment. The Badshahs are 64/2 after 8 overs in response to the Lions' 136/6. A close win for the Badshahs might just enable us to maintain our position (4th) on the points table, with all teams having played equal number of matches.

DW just simply need to win the next two matches rather than relying on iffy and buts.
Simple as that.
Make it happen rather than waiting for somebody to do it for you.

DW slides down to 5th position.

LB moves up to 4th.

Tehsin
November 2, 2008, 04:57 PM
I am not really worried about the current position of DW because at the end of the day, all they have to do is WIN both the matches with decent RR. Position will change from 4 to 3 to 5 but I am more inetersted in the outcome.

1) Win both of the matches - SEMI
2) Win against Rockets, lose against Badshah
- Lion, DW, Badshah and Bengal will fight for the 3rd and 4th place. Lion (better chance of winning against weaker opp) and Badshah (good runrate) are favourites, Bengal will probably lose the next two matches.
- if Bengal wins once more, the will make the 3rd place.
3) Lose against Rocket, win against Badshah
- Badshahs are out. If Bengal loses all, they are out, too. Lions and DW make 3 and 4.
4) Lose both
- See you in the next season!

We are back at #3. Bengals thrash the Superstars by 9 wickets and what makes it even more upsetting is that Marshall is now the leading run-scorer by over-taking Alok and Chandana is the leading wicket-taker before Rafique. If Hyderabad win then we are at #4 which means the match against Lahore will be a must-win for the semis. And already I am getting feelings that we will choke in that match.

Hyderabad is playing lowly Mumbai next. So it is a win (almost). Then the last game they play against bengal. Both with 5 wins. Lahore has a better runrate than ours. So 4-4 will not be enough for DW to go semis. They have to beat Lahore no other option left.

If Delhi can beat Hyderabad then I think Mumbai has a chance too. But that's a very slight chance.

spot on! A loss against lahore will kick us out of the semis for sure. This is a must win situation for semis :-|

Chennai
Bengal
Hyderbad
These three will move on for sure as Hyderbad will most likely beat the Mumbai Chumps. So if the Warriors loose to Badshahs then the semifinal birth will be cleaned bowled.

It's a must win game from DG going on right now. i did not expect them to get anywhere near 200 in this one. Yet, here they are. Needing 48 runs of 31 balls.

All DW needs now is to beat LB outright for a guaranteed spot in the semis.

What if DW loses? Here's how the others work out:

- Lions loss today put them in a tought position. not only do they have to win, they will have to WIN BIG, and I mean BIG. At the same time, DW will have to lose big as well.
- Heroes play champs and tigers. Interesting here. if they win against Tigers, Tigers will be in trbl due to lower RR. A win maybe enough for Heroes and that would put DW in trouble.
- Badshahs play DW and Chennai. They have to beat DW No matter what. A win against Chennai will be necessary to have a shot at the semis. That is, if they lose to DW and Heroes lose both their games.

Now the competition is among 5 teams:
Chennai, Bengal, Hydrabad, DW and Lahore.

We must win against LB. Then comes the other equations, hopefully the good run rate would speak for us.

LB has a good RR, better than DW. RBT & Hydra has a poorer RR than DW. There is no shortcut for DW, they have to win against LB. Then wait for LB/RTB/Hydra to lose their next match.

Wow. NONE of the IFs and BUTTs worked out. The LB vs DW match is now the unoffical quarter final match. DW has to win it to advance.

Baundule
November 6, 2008, 12:43 PM
After Hydrabad's big win, we have no alternative than winning the next match.
Chennai, Hydrabad and Bengal are now sure for the semi, irrespective of the results of the remaining matches.
The fight is between Lahore and DW. If DW wins, LB is out. If DW loses, LB needs to lose by huge margin against Chennai.

Warriors still have a chance - if Lahore loses its last match against Chennai (currently the top team of the league) badly enough to have its Net RR drop bellow DW's, DW can sneak into semis.

Can you put that in numbers by giving us a scenario? Like how big must Chennai win?

If it's something like Chennai must score 200 and bowl out Lahore for 100 then there's no point of raising false hopes.

November 7, 2008, 03:08 PM
If chennai gets 200 then Lahore needs to be bowled around 130ish. So u can forget about it.

Chances were over practically when DW lost to Badshahs. As badshah had better run-rate, they needed to loose very very badly today to give DW any chances for semi. Which was never on the cards. When Badshah scored 200 today....well it was officially all-over for DW.

FagunerAgun
November 9, 2008, 05:31 PM
Even though DW did not go to Semi, I am happy and delighted to watch their last few games. I think they need one strike bowler to improve from a mediocre bowling.
I hope they will do better next year, and all the way to semi finals.

The Dhaka Warriors gave us a big DHOKA at the end. When it was required the most they ran out of gas, played liked losers and gave it all way just at the very end.

But they did make a good account for themselves with some good victories.

I hope next time they improve and do better, but not at the cost of luring current national players.

Dhaka DHOKA dei ne, they finally played against a team with overall (instead of just 4 to 5 quality playersper team) quality team. They did well considering this was their first attempt, it took them a couple of matches to get in the groove (hence, lost those first couple of matches) of 20/20 and they did well considering they had the pace bowling handicap. Kapali lead from the front and his confidence rubbed off onto his teammates and that I believe made the difference.
