NWG Is In Shock
Because England lost. NWG would be rolling in the pennies if she'd had a bet (because let's face it, England would have been odds on to lose).
But, and she's not wanting to be a bad sport about this, the D/L system seemed a bit unfair tonight.
West Indies were always going to be able to get those runs. England were always going to lose.
NWG suggests (and this is bold) that D/L should also factor in wickets. So if a side chasing (like West Indies tonight) needed 40 off 30 balls, they should only have three wickets to spare. If they lose those three wickets, England have effectively bowled them out.
This seems fair, which even surprises NWG.
p.s. England actually batted rather brilliantly today. Without the luck of the Irish and the input of a couple (alright, several) South Africans, they would have been toast hours ago.
p.p.s. NWG told you Ryan is rubbish. When will England listen to her?
