6 matches to Woe Cup


Two days *after* I released the reworked spreadsheet charting out the possible qualifying teams for the Quarter Finals, the famed ESPN-Cricinfo has rehashed a similar one.

The only variation is that they have included the possibilities of the IND/WI and the
BAN/RSA being washed out - spreading 1 point each to all.

For the record, IND/WI clash 3 days from now, on Sunday is going to be played at my home town - Chennai. If it rains that day or night, I will sleep with a cricket ball in my pyjama pocket.
:-D

So, 3 more match(es) played with predicted results & 2 matches underway today.
1. RSA vs IRE - RSA win - correct prediction
2. AUS vs CAN - AUS wiin - correct prediction
3. ENG vs WI - ENG win - probable prediction

With the English win, 4 out of 8 possible line ups -
ENG lose (to WI) with IND win or IND lose (to WI) plus RSA lose (to BAN) have been eliminated.

Possible future forks of the Seldon Plan have disappeared
;-)

As mentioned on 15th, these Q/F line ups had been (already) eliminated:
(1) AUS will not meet RSA in the Q/F
(2) NZ and PAK will not meet either ENG or BAN in the Q/F

To which we can safely add today:
(1) AUS will not meet either RSA or BAN
(2) NZ and PAK will not meet either ENG or BAN in the Q/F
(3) SL will meet only BAN or ENG in Q/F

The original post of 09 Mar 2011 contains the Google Spreadsheet
which has been updated to reflect the result(s)
