        I never said footy. The Indian Super League is footy. The Indian Premier League is cricket. I like the IPL. Maybe E$PN- covers the ISL, but I've never watched it. The IPL (especially RCB [the Red Sox of the IPL]) I watch religiously.

              They won in an overtime period.

              • Afghanistan is putting a hurting to New Zealand. Needing 160, NZ is 54-7 after 10.3 overs.

                Edit: NZ all out for 75 in 15.2 overs. Afghanistan won by 84 runs.

                  • I thought I read awhile ago the US did a big campaign naturalize guys to build up a squad for this. Certainly a monumental upset since it’s, you know, Pakistan, but it’s not like there’s been a huge swell in cricket talent in the US. Though there has been a lot of investment the last five years.

                    Not like it doesn’t happen in other sports. Usually the softball tournaments end up being Japan, Australia, Canada, the US and 2-4 other countries with teams of 90-100% Americans with ancestry. And I think the Philippines team was all Americans in the Women’s World Cup.

                      From the articles I was reading it looks like we just went out and bought ringers. But like Jim said, a win's a win. If you look at the top 100 "American" chess players about 10 were born here.

                      It could also be quasi-legitimate like Great Britain's titles in ice hockey where all the British were from Canada, but, hey, The Empire.

                      • Today's goal for the USA v India up in NYC -- keep it close. We may need a favorable Net Run Rate to advance.

                        A washout v Ireland later this week in Lauderdale FL, clinches advancement to the Round of 8.

                        • Mostly kidding. I've attended a few cricket matches both in England and in Bahrain. It's entertaining to a point, but compared with other international fare such as football, rugby and Aussie rules it doesn't do that much for me.

                            I've been watching Aussie rules semi-regularly since the pandemic hit and it was one of the last sports standing before being shutdown. Really want to go to a game if I ever make it to Australia. Go Swans!

                            • Interesting quirk in the points system. A win is two, a loss is zero, but a rainout gets one. US vs Ireland got rained out so the US ended with 5 points to Pakistan’s 4 and advanced to the next round. The US likely would have beat Ireland anyway, but it was more beneficial to have a rain out than lose, because a loss could’ve sent them home on the net run rate.

                              • USA Super 8 games (fixtures). All games in the West Indies

                                Top 2 advance to semifinals.

                                I don't think we stand a chance of advancing. I like 1-2-0 and a 3rd place finish with a barely negative NRR.
