Watson almost single handedly taking Ausi to the final. :notworthy:
Although he is well supported by the rest but still I want to see how Aus does on a bad WAtson day.

SA batting is not good enough in this format, Levi is very inconsistent, Amla not so good (that's weird) , AB not in best form, Duminy is good but SR is not so good.

Watson has a higher strike rate than gayle in t20 internationals.. and he actually wins matches for his teams far more often than gayle. Lets not even compare their bowling ability. Watson would be rivaling Kallis and probably beating him if he didnt have all those injuries early in his career

If Umar Akmal plays a good innings Pak can still get close to 150. Pak have Hafeez, Ajmal, Afridi. These guys usually bowl really tight, so you never know. India will play really attacking from the beginning, because they need to make up for the runrate, if couple wickets fall at the beginning it might get interesting.

India right now has a psychological edge over Pakistan. Pakistan used to enjoy the same kind of edge over India after Javed Miandad hit a last ball six against Chetan Sharma to win a game. Those days are now long gone and now it is India who has more self belief in their abilities.

Wt20 getting better and better.. screw IPL.

You might not like to admit it, but the truth is the reason WT20 is getting better is ditectly related IPL, BBL and whatever other leagues are going around. Players know if they want to get big contracts, WCT20 is the perfect place to show off what they have to offer. Also players take IPL pretty seriously now, because there is a lot of pressure on them from the franchise to perform. Maybe their T20 skills are improving because their playing more in IPL, BBL etc.

F6_Turbo
October 1, 2012, 09:43 AM
Those talking about Samuels...Pollard has been in horrible form all tournament. Samuels isn't as clean a hitter, but he is the better player. Also don't forget two wickets and you can't bat anymore...

Samuels has the required subtlety in his game to handle all sorts of deliveries.

Dilscoop
October 1, 2012, 10:32 AM
It's stupid how they have the super over but if it's a tie in super over, instead of going to "double OT," so to speak, they will break the tie with the amount of boundary hit (in the whole game or just the Super Over?). Then why not just do that in the first place? Or do it by the loss of wickets-- which seems more fair but not as fun. If you are gonna do Super over, you must keep doing it until you break the tie.

Group 2 is still wide open. Pak-Ind-SA all can qualify

Pakistan

Pakistan's passage is not straightforward even if they beat Australia. Even after winning, they'll have to hope that India don't beat South Africa by a bigger margin and sneak past them. If, for example, both Pakistan and India score 160 and win their last matches by ten runs, then Pakistan's NRR will be marginally lower than India's.

India

Like Pakistan, India too need to win to have any realistic chance of qualification. If India concede 160 and lose by more than three runs, their NRR will slip below that of South Africa. If India and Pakistan both win their matches, the margins of those results will decide which team goes through.

South Africa

However, if Australia do beat Pakistan, South Africa have a fair chance of making it to the next round, thanks to poor NRRs of India and Pakistan. As mentioned above, if South Africa score 160 and win by more than three runs, their NRR will go above India's, enough to qualify provided Australia have won all their matches. The advantage for South Africa and India is that they play the last game of the group, and will thus have an exact knowledge of what they need to do to qualify.

Too bad they will choke in the semis. I hope they go through though. SA have more exciting squad than India (excluding Kohli).

I wanted WI/NZ and SA/AUS. But too bad NZ got knocked out. I'm glad ENG did. It's one of the most fuglest team in the whole tournament. No KP, no Bell. Too bad for McCullum and Ross. Their bats will be missed for the next 3 games. But Malinga is there, so that's not all that bad. Plus they are the home team, so I don't mind SL going through.

WI has to be in the final or it's an automatic fail.

Agreed that SA is far more exciting than India's. Steyn and Morkel are great to watch and then their batsmen are also fun to watch. I'm also glad England's out. It should get their media and fans back down on earth. SL once again impress on the big stage.

Congrats to both SL and WI to make it to the semis. SL has looked very solid in this tournament. WI on the other hand looks shaky.

Looks like Pakistan will be out of the tournament. Just don't see them beating Australia. It'll be between SA and India in the end. It'll be interesting to see who wins out in that match up

^ Pakistan doesn't have to beat Aus to make it. They just have to make sure they don't lose to Aus as bad as India did, and that should be enough for them. While for India and SA to make it they not only have to win, but also make up for the runrate.

I think people are forgetting that Pakistan just beat Australia in recent T20 series, and same warner and watson who were hitting sixes at will against indian sweet and tasty bowling linup were made to struggle for runs in Dubai T20 Series and again in World T20 Yesterday. :cool:

I actually didn't forget. I just didn't think Pakistan had a chance with its struggling batting lineup. And had Jamshed not been dropped, then Pakistan might've put up yet another sub par total. Credit to Pakistan though. They exposed Australia big time once Watson and Warner got out.

The semis will be interesting. I predict a high scoring game for Aus/WI. Pak/SL should also be interesting. The key is how Pakistan's batting performs as it seems like Jamshed is now their Kohli.

Aus can't chase down a high scoring total without Watson and Warner. If WI can take out Watson and Warner early on they have a really good chance.

Boy, NZ's are turning into a bunch of whiners from fighters. Every T20 should game have a Super-Over/Tiebreaker. That's the whole point of T20...

Although they failed this time around, and it wasn't even that high chase, but don't doubt Hussey, White and Wade. They can hit. Their middle order is solid.

WI middle - Power
Aus - Balanced
SL middle - Classy
Pak middle - Shaky

How awesome is that when the away team has probably just as much support as the home team, from the home fans? I mean you can't tell me, someone out there hates this WI team?

Cheering for Sl as a demoralized Indies could create a chance for our 2nd Test win, never know!!


Though, like both teams :)

Two top teams in the final, no doubt about it.
SL have managed to reach 3 world cup finals in recent years but didn't win anything. You gotta feel bad for them and given this is their home ground, you would have to fancy them.

Not liking WI team is as good as blasphemy. Not since the decline started in the mid 90's, WI looked this strong and good and this is their format. You can't help but hope they win this world cup.

It is such a dilemma.
In the end, I'd be happy either way but leaning towards WI.
Gangnam style once more.

Don't forget how WI got to the final!

They got some serious luck there - like the Pak team did when they won their ODI WC led by Imran Khan!!

WI got one point against the Irish after the match was called off just aftet Irish batting. And I believe they were lucky in one of the super eights match as well.

Anyway, good luck to them :)
And Sl too!!!

KP da, you couldn't possibly comparing Pakistan's luck in 1992 to that of WI in 2012.
If my memory serves me right, Pakistan got a point due to rain in a game where they were bowled out for 74 batting first !!

WI, on the other hand, were unlucky to have their both group matches interfered by rain. You really think WI would have had a hard time chasing the Irish target of 129 ??
Against Aussies, they scored a mammoth 191 and despite Aussie advantage half way thru, we all know what a couple of quick wickets can do and so the result of that match can always be debatable.
