One team’s narrow loss is another team’s gain

17 Mar

West Indies’ narrow loss against England almost ensured a quarter final berth for India, irrespective of a win/loss in India’s next game with West Indies. All they need to do is to make sure that they don’t get to a huge defeat in that match. For example:

  • India should not lose by more than 150 runs, when bowling first
  • India should not lose within 23 overs, when batting first

And the knockout stage is still open for Windies, England and Bangladesh.
