Women's T20 World Cup

Post by God is an Englishman »

Why would they hold it in a place known for its rain?

Looks like it's going to end England and australia's tournaments. Disappointing but funny none the less.

The whole thing looks rigged - were SA were robbed ? by the stupid D/L system for rain shorten matches which gives the team batting second no chance of winning . Does anyone know how many teams have won batting second using that system ?
They wanted to make sure they sold some tickets by Australia making the final - hardly anyone there last night.

Disappointing but that's the competition rules and all sides knew them going into it.

Its a stupid rule tbh, The organisers didn't allow for a catch up day if it washed out, unlike the mens ODI cup.
they have a spare day for the final, but not the semi's

He won't answer, pretty sure of that.

I also believe if he does then he can be shut down quite easily, he nornally is.

A funny comment early in the Indian Innings from the Indian Female commentator as the second wicket had fallen/ caught. The female commentator said the batsman had just hit the 2 4s but it would have been better if she had hit the shot she was out on along ground. :shock: :( :lol:

Failing to see the funny part.

Didn't india best them in the group?
SA was D/L, which certainly has flaws.

Yes, and Australia smashed them in the final (as opposed to being pipped once), so clearly the better team.

D/L has flaws, much like how a tied game can be awarded to a team over another - hmmm, when did that happen recently.....

It happened in the World Cup which England won, I'm not surprised you pretend to forget England winning the world cup.

So, it was 1-1. Hardly shows who the better team was.

As you have said, D/L is flawed.

MY point exactly.

Hypothetical. Team (a) wins 1-0 v team b. Plays same team soon after, loses 8-0. Who do you think might be the better team?

Are you saying a better team can only be chosen after looking at all games they have ever played together?
