Well NZ have already got a wicket off Afghanistan. 5/1.
Also NZ and India are the only teams that are currently automatically through. I think Australia will be too at the end of today's play. I wonder if Ireland might qualify, they really have been playing well!
[QUOTE="Varsh, post: 6431554]I just watched some the highlights of Sri-Lanka's innings on the ICC site... I think you could be right, there's not a single game SL have been playing like this in the tournament so far.[/QUOTE]
Its just bizarre and completely against anything they have been showing for the past 4 months.
With the way SA were fielding I thought that NZ were going to lose it, but then after seeing Steyn go down for cramp I was like "that's it, NZ will get this". I've bowled with cramp before and it's a nightmare, I'd hate to think what it's like under that pressure with 4 balls to go, and that's where I think SA may have lost it.
That drop in the previous over though, that might have lost it for them too, and I think looking at the camera he dropped it before the player collision anyway, not an easy catch to say the least but damn, the pressure!
They certainly had their chances, and they will look back on it, much like we have when we have lost games where we didn't take our chances. But man that was soooo tight, what an amazing game.
Both would have been worthy finalists.
