ZIM gave tough fight to SA and declared that others should not take them lightly.
IRE went a step ahead and ruthlessly beat WI.
SCOT took 7 NZ wickets while defending low score.
In this cup, minnows has done very well so far. More expectations from BAN and AFG.
Which of the top 8 test playing nations may not see knockout stage this time?
For me, WI is on red alert since they are weaker side compared to SA, IND and PAK. If ZIM played like they did against SA, even they can beat WI.
Let me tell you in brief way.
Raina saved India but Afridi couldn't save Pak that day.
Next day so many people were saying like "Hey, our team played well & won against Pak". What a joke? We should have scored 330-350 that day. Before Raina's wicket the run-rate was good & there was a good chance to reach that score. But after Raina's wicket everyone walking towards pavilion quickly one by one. FYI we got only 25 runs from last 5 overs. I was glad that helicopter too was out.
Coming Sunday the real fun is waiting for India & Indian fans. Vs SA.
We batted well in most of the matches baring last 5 overs. As far as bowling is concerned if it was not good then was not bad as well. It is true that this will be tested against SA but if our batters perform well then that will not be easy for SA as well.
True no one expected that type of their batting performance. But you gotta admit that they are extremely dependent on couple of batsman and once they do not click they come under pressure.
Although we had two good matches and I am still cherishing those victories, we still don't hold good chance for the WC.
