i think the message of the OP has gotten lost trying to give the mathematical proof that 40 is < 10, etc. so here is the statistic of how the TEAM has done in the last 10 overs since the 3rd ODI in Christchurch:

43 runs from 60 balls (6 wickets in hand) v NZ
19 runs from 34 balls (4 wickets in hand) v ENG
53 runs from 60 balls (6 wickets in hand) v ENG
49 runs from 60 balls (5 wickets in hand) v ENG
DNB v IND
only faced 2 balls v SL
53 runs from 60 balls (9 wickets in hand) v PAK
63 runs from 60 balls (6 wickets in hand) v ENG
53 runs from 60 balls (5 wickets in hand) v ENG
24 runs from 30 balls (3 wickets in hand) v ENG
51 runs from 60 balls (5 wickets in hand) v IRE
DNB v IRE
DNB v NET
57 runs from 57 balls (5 wickets in hand) v NZ
DNB
40 runs from 49 balls (5 wickets in hand) v NZ
11 runs from 26 balls (3 wickets in hand) v NZ
37 runs from 54 balls (4 wickets in hand) v ZIM
DNB v ZIM
75 runs from 60 balls (6 wickets in hand) v ZIM
DNB v ZIM
47 runs from 60 balls (6 wickets in hand) v IND

Total Runs = 675
Total Balls = 790
Strike Rate = 85.44

a strike of 85 means we will score just 51 runs per 60 deliveries (this includes extras so it shows how bad we are as a team).

we are also usually 5 wickets down at that point, meaning the 6-8 batsman are letting us down almost exclusively.

something is broken. and if you have to use duct tape, then so be it, till a replacement part can be found.
