Tigers_eye
May 7, 2010, 03:15 PM
What an innings by Jayawardene!!! What form he is on? There were talks that Jayawardene can't play the T20 game. He is too slow.

Kallis and Jaya has shown first you have to be technically sound as a cricket player to excel in any format. Our boys aren't technically sound. The way they approach in T20 is detrimental to become a technically sound player.

Tigers_eye
May 7, 2010, 03:29 PM
What's up with Sarwan? He was in devastating form a year back before the boycott against England. Chasing 190+ in a T20 game he scored 28 out 33 balls!! What kind of statement is he making? Barath or Simmons needs to replace him. Sarwan needs a long break and rethink about his future.

I don't undrstnd why Yuvi is even picked.

look,nearly the whole of the aussie team was in the ipl 2 and even they have got the experiences.anyways,at the end of the day the better team has won.and i personally think that indian players are just overrated because the indian media.they are very good at making a mountain put of a mole hill.basically i think that the indian players aren't as good as they are "shown" to be.

May 8, 2010, 09:51 AM
India is nothing but overhyped pieces of garbage for T20's..their bowling just sucks way 2 much..only harbhajan looks like a competent bowler but this jadeja guy is a pure joke of a bowler..never should pick that guy again..giving deliveries 2 the aussies so they can just hit 6s..didnt really realize how big of a joke Indias bowling really is..and their batting is overhyped..raina and sharma are ash type players who have a great game 1 day and then flop the next..also they really really struggle against short pitched bowling like us..would've loved 2 see us against them on the kensington oval..

As for Australia..they are just 1 hell of a team and really enjoy when they play..they are just so much fun 2 watch..the way they were blasting shots after shots that were going way over the boundaries was 2 much fun fun 2 watch..especially against the Indians..Liking this watson guy more and more also..hes just such a great player in every format of the game with his batting and his bowling..warner looks like a superstar in the making..no matter what people say the aussies are the #1 team in all formats..sorry India but you guys are not #1 material..Aussies are just masters of the game and they are the most deserving #1..

I was thinking same, but the way they have been playing so far they don't deserve to be in semis. They are pathetic, I would rather support the performer ones then the lucky ones' as like if Pak luckily get to the semis. I'm for Srilanka and Aus, cause they really deserve to face each other in the final.

Australia
England
Or NZ.
unfortunately the Asian teams don't look good at all.

zainab
May 9, 2010, 08:19 PM
i cant believe that Sri lanka performed worse than BD against the Aussies. BD had restricted them to 141 runs, and scored 114 runs. Sl scored less than 90 runs, Never expected this performance from SL.
It shows that all the Asian teams cannot play on bouncy wickets, they cant handle the short balls.

al-Sagar
May 9, 2010, 08:51 PM
With England almost through to the semi-finals from Group E, the three remaining teams are now in must-win scenarios. But only New Zealand needn't bother about other results. Pakistan and South Africa will need to win their match, and also have the other match go how they want it to go. Here are the permutations for how other teams can make it.

Pakistan (points 0, net run-rate -0.215
They need to beat South Africa, and then hope that England beat New Zealand later in the day. If both the matches go down Pakistan's desired route, they will be level on two points along with New Zealand and South Africa, and they will also have the best net run-rate of the three.

South Africa (points 2, net run-rate -0.650)
They can't sneak in based on net run-rate, because they are the worst among the three right now. They will need to beat Pakistan and then hope that England beat New Zealand. If New Zealand win, South Africa will most likely be out, unless they beat Pakistan by a mammoth margin, and New Zealand win very narrowly.

New Zealand (points 2, net run-rate -0.3)
Simplest equation: win and go through, lose and go home. What happens in the other match doesn't much matter to them. If South Africa win the first match, they will have gone to four points, and New Zealand will have to win to come level on points, and then their better net run-rate should carry them through. If Pakistan win, New Zealand know they can't afford to lose because that loss will leave them level with Pakistan at two points, but Pakistan will have a better net run-rate.

Although Aussies are riding on a great tempo, given the fact that the match is going to
be held in the same ground, Pakistan might exploit their spinners to get the edge.

i hate both Pakistan and India. Pakistan used to be my favorite team asides from BD until pretty recently. but their fans are just as obnoxious as Indian fans (exceptions abound either side). still, i'll always root for pakistan over india, and if i had to pick, i'd pak if one team had to be in teh semis, but i really wanted to see both teams humiliated. oh well, 2007 50-50 world cup was enough for one decade i guess...

I believe non of the South Asian team deserved to be in he semis. Sri Lankas performance was just pathetic. I hope we go home tomorrow. Even if we are make it to finals we will play against Aussies and lose anyways.

Jayasuriya is 40 years old and should have retired right after the 2007 ICC world cup. By being in the team he has ended some young guys career.

Sangakaras captaincy also not very impressive, Opening with 40 year old Jayasuriya against 4 bowlers who could hit the 90 mph was the most foolish thing.

Are you Bangladeshi or Pakistani?

On your other point, I agree that India deserves to go out simply because many of their fans believe Raina and Rohit Sharma are great batsmen when they are just flat track bullies

Australia's convincing wins in their two matches have almost surely assured them of a semi-final, but the fight is on for the second slot from group F. Cricinfo looks at what each team needs to do to make the cut.

Sri Lanka (points 2, net run-rate -0.600)
They are currently in second place, thanks to a run rate that is superior to that of West Indies. The best-case scenario for them is that they beat India, and Australia beat West Indies, in which case Australia and Sri Lanka will qualify for the semi-finals on points. Sri Lanka will also be through if they lose to India by less than 20 runs and Australia beat West Indies.

However, even a win against India will not assure them a spot in the last four, if West Indies beat Australia. Currently, Sri Lanka have conceded 24 more runs than they have scored, while for West Indies the corresponding number is 43. If both teams win their final games and West Indies win by a margin that offsets that difference, then they will go through. Thus, if Sri Lanka beat India by a run, and West Indies beat Australia by 21 runs, then the home team will progress to the semis.

West Indies (points 2, net run-rate -1.075)
The win against India has kept them in contention, but the huge defeat against Sri Lanka means their NRR is still languishing at -1.075. They'll qualify without the run rate coming into play if they beat Australia and if Sri Lanka lose to India. However, if they beat Australia and Sri Lanka beat India, then NRR will come into play. West Indies currently have a handicap of 19 runs compared to Sri Lanka (refer to the paragraph above), and they'll have to win by a margin that offsets that handicap. A defeat against Australia will put them out of the tournament, regardless of the result in the other match.

India (points 0, net run-rate -1.575)
For India to make the cut, they'll have to beat Sri Lanka by a margin of at least 20 runs, and then hope West Indies lose to Australia. Currently India have conceded 63 more runs than they have scored, compared to Sri Lanka's 24. If they win by 20 runs, their difference will reduce to 43 while Sri Lanka's will increase to 44, which will do the trick for India. If India bat second, and assuming Sri Lanka have scored 160, they'll need to chase it down in a maximum of 17.4 overs to lift their NRR above Sri Lanka's.

Australia (points 4, net run-rate +3.250)
Not only have they won two games, they've won them so convincingly that their net run rate is an incredible +3.25; the difference between their runs scored and conceded is 130. They're through unless what's listed below, or something even more incredible, happens: West Indies beat Australia by 87 runs, and Sri Lanka beat India by a 68-run margin. Then both West Indies and Sri Lanka will have a higher NRR than Australia. It's a possibility, but only in theory.

I disagree..we should not look at how people on the forums look at us so much..because the paki friends I have are not like that at all..they actually have a soft side 2 BD and really like our players..they also talk about how its just a matter of time before we become a good team..some indians I found were pretty obnoxious but most of them actually like our cricket team as well and they say the same thing..at the end of the day there are good and bad apples in each country and we cant let the bad apples overtake what we think of them..I really love pakistan because of the style they play..once they click they can be 1 of the most exciting teams in the world..never liked india because of their style..their just a boring team 2 watch..only get entertained by the way yuvraj plays but players like gambhir and vijay put me 2 sleep..not saying their not good batsmen but just dont like the way they play..
