Get one more and Mills/Oram won't need to bowl
They've really missed Dwayne Bravo in this innings
God almighty. What a useless shower. How the **** did England lose to that lot.
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)
Someone to calculate how fast we need to do this to get through even if SL only win by 1 run.
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.
