    8 wickets and 3 overs to spare. Good win.

    That last Ajmal over could be crucial as far as NRR goes.

    Now that's a thrashing. It's 8-0 now, I believe.

    India wins a match in super 8 of world T20 after 5 years. I knew we would have to play Pakistan* to break the jinx. Or perhaps South Africa.

    * OK, I'm just acting up. I was nervous like everyone.
    RIP Phil Hughes. You were destined for cricketing glories!

    A difference in second decimal of NRR. Not going to matter. The last 2 games will decide.

    Unless the last two games are washed out.

    Will look silly if both games are super overs with the same results (wins for both Pak and India or losses for both Pak and Ind).

    While Pakistan lost the game I think they have the ingredients to win the tournament. They bat really deep with batsmen till no. 9 able to hit big. And a bowling that has lot of variety and perfectly suited for the conditions in the island nation. They just need to apply themselves. Sit out the baring order - Mallik and Akmal should play up the order. Gul needs to bowl with confidence. They should not drop any catches.

    Something tells me that this tournament will get decided by the bowlers. Other sides with very good bowling being Australia, Sri Lanka and south Africa.

    Balaji's a rather good T20 bowler, and his stats suggest so. He's done well in both the SMAT and the IPL, and over 72 matches, so you can't go wrong with that. In fact, Dinda's also a decent option in this squad as a T20 specialist, and can come in place of a batsman- one of Gambhir and Yuvraj. Strike rate under 20, economy under 7, definitely worth a shout for now.

    They need to line up Irfan, Zaheer, Balaji, Ashwin and Dinda against the South Africans. And also conserve wickets like they did today, in which case, they won't need to weaken their bowling to cushion their batting.

    I'd say India should feed more spin to SA. What happened to Rahul Sharma BTW? Ashwin / Sharma would've been a great spin combo.

    Think if you lose to Pakistan and India beat the Saffers you could miss out on net RR, but it'd take a massive turnaround.

    If India beat SA, and you lose to Pakistan, you could go out. But it's highly unlikely because of net run rates. You'd have to get thrashed and India would have to thrash South Africa.

    So basically, if you don't get hammed in your final game, you're through.
