This is not a conspiring theory but a reality.
Let the Saturday matches finalizes who will play against whom in the Semi final and then we can further discuss on it.
Pakistan is literally out and they have no hope now unless they bowl out Bangladesh within 40-50 runs which is insane. All these conspiracy theories and fixed matches stuff is pure bullshit and nothing else. Pakistan and other teams need to focus on improving from now and should focus on the next World Cup instead.

But WI is lot better than AFG but they need to play to the condition then only they can win matches,we saw that they were playing ODI matches like T20 matches which caused them to lose many matches,hooefully they learned something and will play better this time.
I disagree. Afghanistan almost won against both India and Pakistan recently proving how much they have improved over time. On the other hand, West Indies is playing horribly except for a few players like Pooran, Cotrell etc.

ICC must be thumbing their chest or maybe some of them pulling their hairs after checking point table -reading following statement. It sums up why ICC opted for only 10 team format, and an argument is good on both side though.

What an irony! The top two teams from the qualifiers are lying at the bottom of the table in the World Cup and are playing a dead rubber. So much was expected from these two teams but not to be.

LOL I had a small bet for WI to score over 3.5 runs in the first over. Mujib bowled the over and Gayle was like I am not gonna take run from the first over no matter what ball you bowl :-P

Anyway, I think WI will win this match and they will score over 300+ runs.

Well WI failed even having some good player in the squad but Afghanistan is no where near (strength wise) to any other team in the current world cup. You do not count upsets, do you?

If Afghanistan would win any match than that would be upset.

Gayle is gone! Final World cup match is a disaster, in fact the whole tournament.

Almost winning is not a win,if they want to make a statement that they are better then they need to cross the line.But they evolved as a better team comparing to the previous years but they still depends on players like Rashid and Nabi who got the advantages from playing on IPL.

Playing IPL and playing 50 over match is not the same. Look at Shakib, I think he played only one match in IPL and he was in the sideline for rest of the matches but in 50 over match in this world cup he is one of the leading run scorer and also have around 10 wickets.

Only depending on Rashid and Nabi was never enough for a ODI playing team.

Gayle just played his last world cup innings and got out as expected and he did not make any impact in this tournament at all, he always starts really slow and that was a bold bet, i would rather go for sixes in the match in favor of West Indies as they have some big hitters.

So don't underestimates Afghanistan, before World Cup started, everyone was sure, they will do 2-3 upsets, but because of their internal politics they ruin whole world cup dreams.
I am not sure what is the reason for their internal politics and why players like Mohammad Shahzad and Aftab Alam were sent home and Shahzad even responded about what is going on within the team. If they could perform as a team without these issue they could have played better cricket.
Mohammad Shahzad was an explosive player and he should be in the team and he could make the most impact if they wanted to upset any team.

Both teams are just playing for the fans today, so it's a bit of a weird one.

I think Nabi and Naib are going to be key to keeping WI score low. Disappointed in Gayle no need to swing like that so early on, but he's been pretty 'meh' all tournament.

I've just gone with one silly bet today, it's been a good week and I don't want to push my luck  Wink

I did not think much. It was only 3.5 runs to score and it was tempting. :-P

By the way, I see a lot of us picked Afghanistan to win in the pool. I am wondering if they really have a chance?

You are always fairly accurate in player to score x amount of runs and I hope you win this too. Good luck bud.

Yes, that's a sad surprise.  But i have one more analysis to make here
NZ lost their last three matches and down in confidence and yet qualifies
PAK Won the last three matches and better in confidence and unable to qualify.
It is a really unfortunate situation, the rain actually spoiled some matches and now the net run rate will determine who is going to the next round, it would be fun if we could see Pakistan getting a spot in the semi and then they are facing India in the finals  Wink.
Today we have Afghanistan vs West Indies and i am thinking about a comfortable win for West Indies but will be glad if Afghanistan can defeat them as they played good cricket but no wins so far.

I don't think West Indies will win comfortably, Afghanistan and West Indies match always nail biting. Now Afghanistan getting their mojo back after started playing some good matches against India and Pakistan.

So don't underestimates Afghanistan, before World Cup started, everyone was sure, they will do 2-3 upsets, but because of their internal politics, they ruin whole world cup dreams.

Afghanistan has always been the underdog in CWC matches. Historically speaking. I don't recall seeing any India tour of Afghanistan or Afghanistan tour of India or Australia. But I havent been watching cricket for a long time now. Maybe the afghans have improved their game overall.

For me, Afghanistan is still in the ranks of countries like Bermuda, Japan, Philippines etc

Not sure about these teams but Afghanistan is better team than current Zimbabwe and Kenya. I see these days Netherlands defeat Zimbabwe. I never heard of this Netherlands team before. https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/_/id/19062/zim-in-ireland-and-nl-2019

Zimbabwe used to be a team who were better than Bangladesh teams once. So does Kenya.

Zimbabwe used to be a team who were better than Bangladesh teams once. So does Kenya.  

Zimbabwe and Kenya were good teams and had very talented players (Neil Johnson and Brendan Taylor for Zimbabwe, Steve Tikolo and Thomas Odoyo for Kenya). But the issue with these teams was that cricket was not very popular among the native population and therefore they had a very limited player pool. And the bad political situation in Zimbabwe forced many of the players to move out of the country.

Almost winning is not a win,if they want to make a statement that they are better then they need to cross the line.But they evolved as a better team comparing to the previous years but they still depends on players like Rashid and Nabi who got the advantages from playing on IPL.
Playing IPL and playing 50 over match is not the same. Look at Shakib, I think he played only one match in IPL and he was in the sideline for rest of the matches but in 50 over match in this world cup he is one of the leading run scorer and also have around 10 wickets.

Only depending on Rashid and Nabi was never enough for a ODI playing team.
Sakib played lot of matches in the previous seasons and I meant that those players got to know about world class players by being with them which helped them a lot to increase their standard of playing in the ODI matches.

The political situation in Zimbabwe and Kenya destroyed their team and many players from those region are migrating to other countries and playing country cricket and that is why you see a sub par team now a days. Kenya had some good players like Odoyo, Maurice Odumbe, Steve Tikolo but i do not remember the rest of the names as it is difficult to remember  Cheesy.

West Indies is playing carefully and they have wickets in hand and if they are able to score above 250 runs then it will be a difficult chase for Afghanistan and i expect a comfortable win for West Indies if that is the case .

With any sport, politics should not be involved. It harms the entire industry of the nation.

Anyway back to the match today, Hetmayer and Hope slowly building up a big partnership. Afghanistan needs to do something about it. They need some very cleaver bowling.

I remember some of those names that you mentioned(Tikolo etc). I remember some players from Zimbabwe like Grant and Andy Flower etc who played well back then. Sad to see their politicians destroying their future.

Such situations are quite common in countries like Zimbabwe and Kenya, but they happen in big countries like Aus and India too. For example, Rayudu decided to retire recently which is a sad loss in my opinion since Vijay Shankar and Mayank Agarwal were selected to replace him. Dumb selectors indeed.

I think the politics in Zimbabwe and India/Australia is bit different. In Zimbabwe/Kenya the politics is if they want to have the cricket board, want to invest money and this kind issue but in Australia/India it's politics in between player and board or player to player etc.

In Australia/India, the backbone of cricket is very strong. One can not just stop it so easily (not possible. There will be ups and downs in team performance but that's a part of the game). The entire nation is crazy about cricket especially in India and other eastern countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

I never mentioned anything about Netherlands.

and Netherlands competes in cricket as Holland probably that is the reason you never noticed them before. They have been part of many CWC tourneys before. They now enjoy full ODI status and will continue to have this status at least till 2022 CWC qualifiers.

Really? At least I think you must have heard of the match where Netherlands scored 190 from 13 overs. Haven't you heard that?
See here- https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8604/scorecard/682919/ireland-vs-netherlands-12th-match-first-round-group-b-world-t20-2013-14
Ten Doeschate from Netherlands have had played two/three times from Kolkata Knight Riders as well.

Yeah, you did not mention it but I bought it because of the relevancy of the post.

By the way, Pooran had his 50 which means Ronnie got luck today again :-)

WI lost two of their set batsmen in the first two balls of the final over but they were managed to get 14 runs from the last 4 balls. The total seems a mountain for Afghanistan betting batting line up.

Gulbadin Naib The Afghan captain, not making a good case for himself. Team politics are already ruining the squad and Mr. Naib helping their cause as well. Missing the catch on the last ball was funny Cheesy and who can forget 47th over against Pakistan's game. lol

Next time Afghan team visits India in their home ground which is in Noida, now in Dehradun, India I suppose. Afghani and Indian fans are going to troll Gulbadin badly, and rightly so. Cheesy



@Royce : Japanese team is very bad atm, personal and real time experience Cheesy
