I think it would be x+y where x can be 0, 1 or 2, and y can be 0 or 1.

I like that.

Pesimistic = 1
Realisitic =2
Optimistic = 3

0 1 (8.33%)
1 1 (8.33%)
2 7 (58.33%)
3 3 (25%)
More than 3 0 (0%)

Notice that there is a vote on "0" wins. :)
The mere fact that there is not vote on 'more than 3' shows that folks who voted know their cricket.

This will make me happy -

1. Strong win against Canada
2. Win against Kenya
3. Out of the 4 others - 2 strong performances !

Pundit,

I think that is a very realistic challenge. It is attainable, yet, not at all guaranteed. Among the remaining two games- one very bad and one bad performance is also acceptable to me.

I'm not sure if this will happen (will know more for sure after all the trial games), but specifically speaking, this would be good (also bearing in mind the venues, therefore pitch conditions) -

This is not a prediction, but desire.

vs Canada : win by 6 wics or 60+ runs
vs SL : Lose by 6 wics (strong perf.) or 80 or less runs.
vs WI : Lose by 5 or 50 or less runs (strong)
vs SA : Lose by 7 wics or 150+ runs (poor)
vs NZ : Lose by 7 wics or 100+ runs (poor)
vs KENYA: WIN BY 20 runs or 3 wics

Had we been playing Kenya early on (such that it would have been more likely that all 4 of our pacers were playing), I think our victory margin could have been higher.

And if I dare comment on the surprise, it has to be against the WI.

why wouldn't all the pacers play at the end? are they planning on being tired? masri will be hitting his stride later in the tournament if at all

All our new ball bowlers - Monju, Tapash, Talha, and Mashrafee will get tired even before the world cup starts.

As they are going to have to play 7 one day games before the actual match against Canada.

But, if Pilot decides to keep the team combination like this that only 2 pacers will play 1 game each in Namibia, then it could be a different proposition. But, is that a really gonna happen?

After the three matches, if it looks like it is taking a toll on our FRAGILE (sound like most FOLKS thinks that's what our players are. If they can't play 7 matches in 20 days, what are they doing playing international cricket?) players, we should just skip the last two matches, train and go play two TOUGH matches against the two SA sides.

Thanks Fwullah !

Yes, I really hope that everybody has learnt really well from the MASRI injury fiasco.
