why did all of these teams play warmups against each other
Maybe they are close friends sometimes on circuit there are friendships which might be a surprise for fans. I once saw Azhar Ali and Murali Vijay traveling together like buddies on a flight from Dubai to London was a surprise for me as I don't recall them ever playing an international match togetherChad Balbirnie casually resting his elbow on Rohit
I think it's time to address the elephant in the room of this entire tournament and of this group in particular: no one* is going to be helped by the weather, because it's probably going to rain non stop for most of next week and maybe even the week after that at this rate.
Weather would affect Eastern & South Eastern Australia more than Western or Northern Australia.
That’s Melbourne all the time tbf.
You know it’s a bit of a hike from Melbourne to Perth right?Weather would affect Eastern & South Eastern Australia more than Western or Northern Australia.
Cricket should be flexible enough to transfer these matches to Western Australia.
I understand logistical problems & other such stuff but earnings from these re-arranged matches (esp Pak v Ind match) would certainly be more than additional logistical costs.
South Africa are 7 dollar odds to win the whole tournament on sportsbet atm, reckon that's decent value. There comfortably a better t20 team that india atm, should make it out of their group qualifying for the semi's bare minimum.
