It is not uncalled for at all. This is thread from a South African fan looking for excuses after their world cup loss. You wouldn't have opened this thread If SA were still around.
In the Second Round SA didn't win more matches than India and NZ and their NRR was lower than India/NZ, hence they were eliminated, as simple as that., nothing wrong with the format, no format is wrong or right, there is no format that is perfect.
