USA are fighting exceptionally well and now they have some serious openings here.

Indian middle order is not in good form. So far, Dubey, Jadeja and SKY have struggled in this USA's leg of WC. If they can get 2 more wickets then it's a game on.

Required run rate has gone above 7 runs per over. And it is really surprising to see Suryakumar Yadav and Shivam Dube with strike rates in 70s and 60s (usually they have >150). American medium pacers are really troubling the Indian batsmen. Both Shadley van Schalkwyk and Corey Anderson are mixing it up. Just now Netravalkar dropped an easy chance of Suryakumar Yadav, and this is going to be extremely costly for the Americans. If that catch was taken, then there was a good chance that USA could have won this match.
Yeah, the match could have been tighter or possibly thriller if Netravalkar wasn't generous to his schoolmate, at least he wasn't kind to another schoolmate Rohit so its fair lol.

IMO in this chase, those 5 run penalties did some good for SKY-Dube and they accelerated after that. Overall, the USA fought well and their participation did produce some nice memes.

It's not a bad effort from the USA, against bowlers like Bumrah they are faring well so far.

With 95 runs on the board and 4 overs to go, they should look to touch the 120 mark here and if got lucky then maybe cross it. In the end, we might witness a competitive match.

India vs the Americans underway! What a start by Arshdeep. If they restrict USA under 100, this match will probably will finish within 15-16 overs. On the other hand, if they score above 100, it will probably end within 18 overs.

Pakistan is probably praying for India to decimate the Americans by a big margin which is totally possible at the moment.
India are heavily favorite despite the USA's brave campaign. I'm not expecting any upset tonight because it's not a knockout  Tongue and the Indian team only gets brain fade moments in the semis or finals. In group matches they just bully everyone. 

Well, makes complete sense, considering their position on the table.

If the USA manages to lose the remaining 2 matches against India + Ireland and Pakistan wins against Ireland then Pakistan will qualify because those wins will improve their NRR. Similarly, USA NRR will take a hit as there is no big gap in their NRR.

Results aside, Pakistan vs Ireland and USA vs Ireland both will be played in Florida where rain is expected, so possible washout and Pakistan is done and dusted.
Yeah, the weather forecast is hardly encouraging for Pakistan but the USA and India won't mind that though.

Sri Lanka and England's fixtures also faced a complete washout and the former is technically eliminated. Poms are also staring at possible elimination and they are heavily dependent on other team's results.

Since Pakistan had pretty low chance to progress further in tournament, I was expecting them to go guns blazing but they still played rather conservatively.

Now Imagine if India deliberately loses (tactical loss) against USA tomorrow, that would be comedy, or at at least not thrash them.

That aside, I sincerely would like Pakistan in super eight for entertainment purposes.

Comedy, yes but India should focus on its qualifications and WC trophy, nothing else.

Pakistan vs Canada ongoing! Canada started pretty well, but I still feel Pakistan will defeat them easily though the margin might not be huge. They are still alive in this tournament barely and am not expecting them to advance to the super 8.

Johnson seems to be carrying Canada yet again. Wonder if this match will end up becoming another close thriller or a one sided one.
One way traffic so far and Canada's batters are not in the mood of troubling scorers, except Aaron Johnson.

Johnson is the key for them, the longer he stays, the better. They might end up with a competitive target, let's say 110-120, otherwise the match is gone.

This New York ground producing only low scoring thrillers and i guess it'll follow a similar script. The projected score before the match is still around 135-140.

If we go by a history of this ground then it could be another low score chase and if Canada manages to touch the 140 mark then who knows, after all, opponents are Pakistan.

Pakistan is now at a dead end in this World Cup and again will be dependent on calculation to move ahead.
Qudrat ka nijam is very much in the play for Pakistan. They do this every time and out of nowhere some big team manages to lose against minions or miraculously some washout points and the next thing we know they are playing in the finals.  Grin

Proteas need to repeat similar bowling efforts as the Indians but also hope that Bangbros do the Pakistani stuff and crack under pressure.
That is exactly what happened and something that I was expecting too. It was hilarious listening to Nasser Hussain stating that 140 is a par score here when I was confident that 110 is par.

Maharaj tried his best to help Bangladesh win at the end through 3 full tosses, but they tossed away the gifts. Lucky South Africa. Wonder if they will get this lucky against tougher competition later on.
To be fair to Bangladesh, umpires did dirty to them by calling LBW at the wrong time, to the naked eye it looked like it was sliding down the leg and missing the stump completely (DRS confirmed it). The ball went to the boundary line but the umpire gave an out signal so the ball became dead and Bangladesh missed 4 crucial leg byes runs.

But yeah, Maharaj did bowl some full tosses in the last over and one of the ball should have cleared the boundary but Mahmudullah missed it.

This one

Same ground and almost the same script for the first inning. This New York pitch keeps giving a reality check to every T-20 merchant.

Speaking of merit sources be it the Indian community or here in cricket thread. It's a lost cause so personally I'd suggest dropping your post anywhere, when you enjoy the most, with that you won't expect any merits but it'd be fun anyway.

It was my signature space not the post, I tried to play with it. Cheesy
Wanted to respond, that's it.

Lmaoo Wtf Buhahahahahhaa We won? Still can't believe it lmao, laughing like a crazy fuck in real, had virtually no hope but dam jeez  Grin Tongue Tongue Tongue

I want to give all the credit to Bumrah and most importantly Pakistani batters without them it was a lost cause from the start. FFS they deserve all the credit to fumble this subpar score chase.

PS: in the context of sub par score, the predicted score was 137-ish.

Don't forget Indian batting looks very ordinary today, after the good start Indian batters gifted their wickets which is a concerning point to address in the upcoming match.  In spite of that this match was an absolute entertainer, both team were comfortable in initial 10 overs but the second phase the game took a complete U turn.

Bumrah again nailed it with important wickets when the team is in most need.

So this means PAK is officially out of the super 8 right?
Now the both scorecards are out, we can imagine that it was a bowler's pitch but Batters do deserve their fair share of credit of gifting wickets.

Man! I had lost all hope but still watched the match because of Bumrah and Boy o Boy Cutie Jassie did the hard yard again and i Loved it, thoroughly. There is another level of thrill when your team wins the low scoring match, simply amazing.

90-10 in favor of Pak and they should win this one comfortably unless they pull another vintage Pakistani stuff.
Yeah. That seems accurate since Rizwan is manouvering the chase like a boss even though everyone else around are collapsing. If India get Rizwan soon, the tables could turn like crazy.

Am expecting Bumrah or Siraj to remove him since they are on fire in this match. Very entertaining match!
They are still favorite.

But i bet every Pakistani fan or even in their dugout every batter will be very nervous against Indians. Again IMO It's their game to lose and so far India only fought in patches so they didn't deserve to win. The equation is 37 runs out of 30 balls and 6 wickets in the bank so it's Pak's match.

Okay well it's clear that our batters fucked up big time despite Pakistan being too generous to them at least in first 7-8 over with their fields and call it luck for Indians.

But after that they did make it out with quick wickets though, having said that Pant, SKY, Dube, Jadeja all got out to normal balls, it wasn't wicket ball IMO but the scoreboard suggests otherwise.

90-10 in favor of Pak and they should win this one comfortably unless they pull another vintage Pakistani stuff.

I was expecting them to end the innings with around 180 with some finishing touches, but then a proper collapse and now India is at 112-9, lol.
137-ish was the predicted score at this pitch from the start.

NGL this WC schedule makes it very hard to follow any match and they fixed 4 matches today, blame the timezone I guess.
You read my mind perfectly. I was stunned to see 4 matches today and I thought 2 matches per day are tough to follow. ICC were probably high as hell when they prepared this congested schedule.

Also, I have no freaking idea why they didn't allocate the primetime slot to the Australia vs England match instead of SA vs Netherlands.
Yeah, I dislike the schedule too, they could have run tournament bit longer with 2 matches max a day. People who are passionate will watch the match anyway, irrespective of the time of broadcast. This hectic schedule also makes matches harder to discuss, and some low tier matches get completely overshadowed by hyped clash of the day, as in Australia vs England yesterday and India vs Pakistan today.
If it was some high profile test series then I'd have tuned in even during ungodly hours but it's too much effort for some random T-20 match despite getting a T-20 WC tag. 

But anyway, at least they got the Ind vs Pak schedule right for obvious reasons. Hope it's paisa vasool contest for everyone.

If Dasun Shanaka's first ball had been dismissed without Mahmudullah Riyad's six,
Hearing lot of praise for Mahmudullah, which is good because he's a capable batter but I glanced over the highlights and tbh it was a freaking juicy full toss, even a tailender with a decent swing (likes of Shami, Wood, Umesh etc) would have knocked that ball out of the ground so Dasun Shanka deserves more credit instead of Mahmudullah.

-----------------------
Anyway, Proteas bullying Netherlands with the ball, well Dutch humiliated them here n there so it's only fair IMO.

Considering they are going with Non Suncontinent matches according to the subcontinent prime time slot, I thought they would at least do the same for SL vs BAN. Over the years these 2 teams developed a spicy rivalry and provided tons of entertainment to neutrals. Pretty Bummed up that I missed the thriller.
