    Good old Calypso collapse.

    And yes New Zealand should definitely have used Hira in Test cricket to prepare him for the World T20.

    Haha. Ronnie has often whinged about not getting any first class chances for Auckland..but they already have a left arm medium pacer in Batesy so they're fine.

    Man, another tactical error - not bowling the always good Mills at the death!

    Wow, 140. Doable

    I guess that's why Windies aren't really still considered title contenders....

    We really should chase this even with only four batsmen (plus the random awesomeness that is Nicol)

    Bowling a team out in a T20 is such a novelty.

    140. So do New Zealand now go all out and risk losing by trying to get the runs as quickly as they can, or do they play it safe and bank on England getting thumped by SL?

    Someone to calculate how fast we need to do this to get through even if SL only win by 1 run.

    The NRR difference doesn't seem that big tbh.

    We won't need SL to really thump England - because we tied with SL, our NRR is relatively good. If we can chase this score comfortably (big if), then any SL victory should be enough.

    Would be way better if we could have had points for a tie though. Don't really see the need for an eliminator when it's a round robin game.

    Anyway, good recovery by our bowlers/terrible batting by WI. Problem is of course our batting from 6 down, plus Nicol, is crap, so if WI get early wickets they'll still be in with a decent chance.

    The difference between England and NZ's NRR is literally about 6 runs.

    If you add 6 runs to England's Against element the run rate suffers by 0.15. Which is almost the gap between the two sides.

    So winning by 5-6 balls, maybe 3-4 balls if you passed the total by extra runs should eliminate net run-rate as a factor. Barring weird D/L adjustments.
