This game worries me,need Warner and Maxwell to get runs for starters.

Is this Chris Gayles swan song? Guy has been living on borrowed time and his legacy as a T20 player taking a hammering this tournament.

Feels like the kind of game Australia could very easily drop.

A100 % perfomance from West Indies v 80% Australia capacity performance could easily see a Windies win.


I also dont think the Windies would mind the pace over the spin.

Wouldn't England have to get ******* pummeled for us to miss out if we win ?

I do think this is the sort of game we'll drop in the T20 format though.

We're gonna do a reverse 'South Africa in World Cups', and fu** this up letting them in later this evening when they flukily roll England who will rest half the squad.

I can feel it in my bones.

South Africa best chance of qualifying would be to bat 2nd tonight against England and chase whatever target inside a certain amount of overs.


Did a few permutations tonight


If WI and England bat 1st tonight and scored 150 exactly. Provided that both chasing teams won , Australia and South Africa, South Africa would have to make up around 19 deliveries in terms of chasing down whatever Australia chased down. eg if Australia chased in 15.0 overs, South Africa would have to chase it down in 11 overs and 5 balls.

Looks like this will be Chris Gayle's last international.

Hopefully he goes out with a bang but with the way he's been going lately it will probably be with a whimper.

I think playing the last group game and knowing exactly what's required to overtake us is what will potentially fcuk us up. A huge underrated advantage to SA.

Hypothetical Situation:

Windies Bowled out for 110 inside 15.0 overs, Australia Chase it down in exactly 9.0 overs

England bat 1st and score 150 from 20.0 overs, SA chase it down in 57 balls

Means South Africa would qualify.
