…and stop everything after the coin toss? The 2 best teams are clearly Pakistan and England (prob in that order) and it isn’t hard to imagine completely different results with different coin tosses. I suspect historically the toss winners have a slight advantage in all form but in international t20s abroad it seems to be a marked advantage (for whatever reasons).
You could do away with the semis and have the 2 group winners play in a best of 3 (toss for first match, loser of toss chooses in second and toss for final game if needed) or something similar.

not sure it was as big as you suggest in the SF's - the dew didn't really effect either game and both chasing sides were all but beaten at one point..

End t20. It has destroyed cricket. Stupid joke of a game with an england captain who refuses to sing the national anthem!!!

Dew does have some affect but it seems to be as much the team batting first just doesn't know (or hasn't until this point) what a very good score is so aim for about 160 and all the team batting second has to do is hang in there until the 15th over and bash it if needed. I'm not even sure i'll bother watching but will see who wins the toss who will obv bat 2nd. i'll then stick a couple of backs at ever silly prices and hopefully they get matched as the team batting first posts a score about 170. It's just a shame that neither of these teams are playing the best atm. Even without the toss advantage I think there is a case for the  group winners in a 3 final scenario in this comp in the future

England were not the second best team. They had every chance and came up short, losing their last two games. They relied too heavily on Buttler getting the big score. They couldn't find anyone else to do something similar. On the day the two winners found players to turn the game, England didn't.

On the day

there you have it -but over the course of the comp are seriously arguing that the favs - aus - are better than england after the shellacking they got? anyway it really doesn't matter who the best 2 teams are my point stands for any t20 comp like this, 4 weeks to find the best teams then it's basically over at the coin toss and watch 2 sub par teams battle it out.

Agreed. The Aussies have won the toss 6 times out of 7 and chosen to bat 2nd every time. The one time they lost the toss, they were absolutely slaughtered by England.

I love test cricket but how any real cricket lover can denigrate T20 is beyond me

should NZ be favourites now? or is 170 or thereabouts gettable for Aus?
By:

When: 14 Nov 21 15:43
only 5 off the 18th,9 off that last halted the run flow,may it prove the difference?

even tho' the pitch is drier unless Oz are like 3 down for 40 odd

you'd still have them as slight faves

still plenty of variance in the prices, though. NZ were strong favs towards the end of their innings.
