Guys I am no statistics expert so please correct me if I am wrong, but was listening to the BBC podcast, and Agnew seemed to think off the top of his head that this result makes life harder for both Bangladesh and the West Indies to qualify.
I cannot for the life of me see how this is the case! surely if we assume that England, the West Indies anf Bangladesh are fighting for 4th spot, and if we also take it as fact what another BBC expert said that you need 6 points to qualify.
Then surely both of the West Indies and Bangladesh are better off for this result, as one of their main rivals has lost out on a potential 2 points, while they are both 2 wins away from the quarter final!.
England on the other hand by my reckoning would need to win 2 of their next 3 games against SA the WI and Bangladesh.
Can anyone here see where Agnew was coming from, because to me what he said made no sense at all!
