I understand that they needed to produce a result, but surely batsmen skills should come into a "Bowl Out" aswell? Afterall, 20:20 is made for big hitting and batsmen...
What a load of trash...
It's unfortunate, but as others have said there was no other option. However the group stage only knocked out 2 teams and those 2 teams (Nashua - got completely thrashed and Somerset who lost twice in full 20 over games) deserved to be knocked out.
