    That would be so unfair to SL if they got it, DL needs to be rewritten for 20/20 cricket.

    Real pity rain ruined the game for Zimbabwe.
    They had such a great pre tournament preparation. I reckon SL should be very thankful that got that victory so easy.

    Seriously though, I bet they would have threw the game. We'll never know now though.

    throwing the game away to get ZIm in super 8's will do more harm for NZ than any good... Other teams will easily get points (improving nrr also) and we need to struggle for wins against others..that may risk our semifinal spot hugely.

    A clever headed Vettori knows this better

    How's Zim getting into super eight affect NZ's chances? They still have to finish in the top 2 in their group regardless right? And if Zim pull off some improbale wins and gains some points by virtue of rain etc and get into semis, won't NZ be happier to face them?

    Not that I'm sure about this tournament, but previously in Super 8s in other ICC tournaments, the points from the team in your group would carry on through to the next stage.

    Thus, if NZ lost to Zimbabwe to get them through, they'd actually have no points at the beginning of the stage, and wouldn't get to play Zims in the Super 8s stage, giving everyone else a free leg-up.

    Try and be a bit more courteous than that in the future, Raghav.

    Not appropriate in the slightest, Bobisback.

    There is no carry forward of points from group stage afaic.

    I can say that what any post is idiotic, stupid, crass or whatever, but it does nothing to add to the forum atmosphere, nor does it come with any worth unless you qualify your opinion.

    How so? Regardless of whether Zim or SL qualify from their group isn't going to change the opponents they have to face in super eight right? Also there is no carry forward of points either.

    In Super 8's, Top 4 teams go to semis..

    If there is a lower ranked team like Zim in 8's, Most of the teams will win against ZIM (ideally) and get that two points and while NZ will need to win hard to earn that two points against a nation except ZIM to be in contention...
