Cricinfiscores StoryWe are into last three day of league game is world cup.There are only seven matches renaming.All Teams who progressed are confirmed abd their positions are yet to be known from Pool A.It is the same scenario in group unless and until miracle happen.After Srilanka defeating Scotland by humongous margin has made their position unclear in pool A.
New Zealand who are the first team to qualify and are Immune to Number one position .All the other three berths are confirmed but not their position and lets look into some of the positions.
If Scotland produce an upset and Bangladesh wins Against New Zealand
Scotland are already out of the tournament and they play their last game against might Aussies.If they manage to secure a win which is next to impossible and Bangladesh manage to create another upset to NZ as they did to England,then table will be like following.
This is the Scenario which all the Indian Fans hate as they don’t want India to face Aussies so early.
If Scotland and Bangladesh lose to Aussies and NZ respectively
If the group stage progresses with out any upsets,then the points table will be following.
This is a very much positive result from Indian perspective.( This is most likely to happen according to our cricinfiscores)
If Bangladesh lose and Scotland wins
Both Australia and Bangladesh will end up with 7 points each ,Australia will be ranked higher due to better run rate.In the above two cases India can face Aussies in Final only,which is a great news if you are a Indian fan
Lets Look into bit convoluted scenario of Pool B
India are immune to other results for Number one Position.South Africa are number 2 with 8 points after winning against U.A.E.Last two places are open for three teams(PAK,WI,IRE). all the three teams have 6 points in their shell and Pakistan are in better position as the have good run rate,which confirms their birth unless some miracle happens
If Ireland Wins against Pakistan.
If Ireland can cause an upset to Pak as they did in 2007,they will staright away qualify for knock-out.
Even if WI win against UAE in this case.,They will be eliminated as Pak has far better run rate than WIndies.
If If Pak Wins And Windies Win
Windies are going to Qualify as Windies have better run rate than Irish.(This cricinfoscores most probable end to table B)
If Windies lose
If windies lose against Scotland,then both both Ireland and Pak progress.
|Pak/Ire(WIn of pak vs Ireland)||8|
|Pak/Ire(loser of Pak Vs IRE)||6|
