India won it by a mile with 15 1st place votes and 6 2nd place votes. Second place was close but South Africa just scraped it with 7(1sts) and 5(2nds) compared to Englands (6 ists & 6 2nds) The other Semi-Finalist will be Pakistan.
The super 8's will be.
Which see's New Zealand miss out to Zimbabwe.
Results were calculated by giving a team 2pts for every 1st favourite vote and 1pt for every second favourite vote
It depends how you choose to read the results. For example 2 people choose NZ as there winners, it's just that they had no 2nd place votes that they didn't fair well. On the other hand Zimbabwe had 2 x winner votes and 1 Runners up vote which I presume came from non-cricket lovers hi-jacking the vote.
Yes we can.
Changing any player in the team leads to a tranfer.
You have 24 transfers allowed in the league stage.
Team captain can be changed anytime before the match starts.
This does NOT count for a transfer. However, change should be done before the match to be effective.
Remember, DO NOT change your team (or captain) after the match starts.
The changes will then only take place from the next match.
Example, for the Ind match, you include Dhoni after the match starts.
You would have lost a transfer, however since the match had started, Dhoni will only be counted for the next match which is Zim vs Sa.
Dhoni is not going to score in Zim vs SA and you have lost a transfer!!
And to this, I read a perfect comment on CricInfo sharing my exact thoughts: "I can't understand the wisdom of sending in Kohli who's in the form of his life ahead of Yuvraj, a guy desperately in need of match practice against quality bowling. Isn't that the point of warm up games?"
This just puts some doubt in my mind - Does Dhoni want's Yuvraj to comeback?
or Dhoni left his brain at home?
We were discussing the same here. Warm up matches are to warm up somebody desperately need warm instead of warming up warmed payers . I guess, Dhoni not interested to see Yuvraj getting another Man of the Series.
♦ Just because you can't think how it can be done doesn't mean it's impossible to do.
♦ Dissatisfaction is man’s driving force.
The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.
