India were forced to play the hand that they loath. Use UDRS. Everything seemed to be alright and even the crowd let out a roar and even Bell had walked half way toward the change rooms. However there was another variable everyone had to contend with the 2.5 meter rule.

A few days ago, I had a look at which batsmen were most likely to satisfy my thirst for excitement this world cup by ranking them by their strike rates. Today, I thought I’d do the same for the bowlers, again by looking at their strike rates.
