    SA and NZ are in different groups no? Each game after the group stages is a knockout so I'm not sure how the finals matter?

    Yeah can't help it, I can never make completely rational decisions when India as a team are involved. In all my time of playing fantasy leagues dating back to 2009, I've always done well in IPL compared to International tournaments (unless India performed well in them).

    Yeah, but you said both teams would make the semis but neither would make the final. How does Faf get his 100 ?

    Ah I see it now, tbh I didn't think much about that last question about random prediction. In any case, you could say I'm hedging my bet on some of those predictions.
