With the groups for Super 8s almost fixed, the last two matches of T20 world cup league did not have much significance, unless of course India decided to lose to Ireland and get into the easier group. I don’t think teams play matches that way :), every one wants to keep winning because just as winning is a habit, losing too is a bad habit, ask the aussies :).
Sri Lanka is back on fire with Jaisuriya playing an amazing innings against the West Indies (WI). Sri Lanka are looking good to win this cup now i think, their bowling fielding and batting is peaking at just the right time. WI played well to reach very close to the target, this ensured they do not go into Super 8 with a demoralising loss.
India vs Ireland was way too boring, wasted my time watching it. Indians were way too cautious i thought in their run chase. Big hitting just didn’t happen. Dhoni continues to struggle with his form, i think it will help him if he bats lower down the order and allows Suresh Raina to play at his usual no. 3.
Super 8s group are as follows now
Group E:India, West Indies, South Africa, England
Group F:Pakistan, Ireland, Sri Lanka, New Zealand
Lets hope to see an India Pakistan semi-final, that would be some clash to watch 🙂
