Super Six Whatifs
Okay, so here is another spreadsheet to whatif SuperSix scenarios. I will keep it up-to-date over the next week as the matches all come to a boil.
Two key questions to be answered:
1. Who will be in the semifinals?
2. Who will play whom? Remember: the side finishing first plays the side finishing fourth, and the side finishing second plays the side finishing third.
As things stand right now (before the Ind vs SL match), Australia, India, Kenya and New Zealand would make it into the semis: Australia vs NZ and India vs Kenya. Now our man Gilchrist says his team wants to avoid facing NZ in the semis. It's trash talk of course... they have some influence, but not a whole lot, on the final outcome of the Super Six. All they can do right now is... talk trash.
