Yes Jase but I just have a hunch some of the selectors are GeekZone members :-)
All Im saying is if we cant score 180+ we will not win this tournament. You guys tell me who is going to score those runs? SA did it and lost to Eng with 200+, Aus lost to Ind.
Lol and im quoting this because im going to bring this out and rub it in your face :)
There were 6 games over 180 in the warm-ups, out of 30 innings, so 20%
There were 10 matches over 180 in the group stages (counts qualifying group) out of 62 matches which is 16.2%
So out of the Semi finals and finals you are statistically only likely to see one innings over 180 :) cant argue with stats, though i think you will try
Well we only played lower teams, such as Australia, India the favourites and Pakistan, so we shoulda got at least 180 against that lot.
Santner is a batsman, but at the end of the batting lineup, so we drop him as his bowling isn't that good anyway.
And if we drop all batsman that aren't 150RR each match too.
End of troll
For me, Taylor needs to go, he's been trying to hit form for the last two years, its like the Warriors giving us a taste then we let him off, them he gets a score.
ENG has scored the most runs so far. They have a good lineup. They however haven't played the quality of teams we have.
NZ has had the least runs scored against us, and against strong teams.
However, T 20 is fickle. Its about the balance between no fear, and brains. About handling a bad patch.
Our aim I assume is that w are the best fielding side, that costs the opponents runs. We are blowing great, that helps the opponents think twice before swinging the bat. If we bowl and field hard, we can win. I want us to field first, keeps bowlers and fielders fresh, and batsmen warmed up.
Ill be up at 2-30
