Another big win for the Papuans, as well as Ireland and probably Namibia. Things possibly starting to settle out now with HK, Jersey and Singapore falling away. Lots of teams still in the running for the coveted top spots though.

I think Nigeria are my favourite team now though. Smiles on their faces and looking like they are enjoying themselves.
Jersey have done well, trying to make a team out of a load of tax exiles.

Ireland, Oman, PNG and very soon the Netherlands will have secured progress in this tournament. It also looks likely that Scotland, UAE, Canada and Namibia will too, unless the lines of Jersey, Singapore and HK secure some massive wins in their final games.

Where each side finishes is still up for grabs. Ireland are currently top of pool B but will likely lose that position of Oman bear Jersey tomorrow. PNG favourites in pool A, although the Dutch could sneak ahead of them.

Dutch bowler Paul van Meekeren has some wheels on him.

Nobody's explained the qualification system. Who exactly qualifies?

It's a bit convoluted, but the top 6 sides from the competition will qualify for the T20 WC next year.

See https://www.cricketscotland.com/icc-...ess-explained/

Winning your group is a big prize to aim for.

Scotland 130/8 in their final group game.

Should be easy for The Netherlands but they need to get them in 12.3 overs if they are to secure top spot and automatic qualification which is a tough ask.

- Zimbabwe were unbanned too late to take part
- Two groups of seven from teams who 'qualified' for these qualifiers
- Top of each group qualify for the T20 World Cup, and the semis of this competition
- 2nd and 3rd in each group go to the semi-final play-offs, win and reach the semis and the T20 World Cup, lose and then win a 5th place play-off semi and you qualify so two shots at qualifying
- 4th advance to the 5th place play-off semis, win the semi and qualify for the T20 World Cup

So basically a lot of games (50) to whittle 14 teams down to six. After 1-4 in each group is determined there are "qualifiers" (excess use of the term tbh)

- qualifiers 1 and 2 : 2nd in groups play 3rd in other group
- qualifiers 3- and 4 : 4th in groups play losers of qualifiers 1 and 2
- 5th place play-off : winners of qualifiers 3 and 4
- semi-finals 1 and 2 : winners of qualifiers 1 and 2 vs winners of groups
- 3rd place play-off : losers of semi-finals
- final : winners of semi-finals


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_I..._Cup_Qualifier


Group A :

Papua New Guinea won today to qualify top, Scotland will want to beat Netherlands and edge Namibia out of 3rd spot on NRR but I suspect that may be very hard.

Kenya, Singapore and Bermuda are out so those mentioned before are guaranteed at least a shot at 5th/6th and the T20 World Cup

Group B :

Ireland are currently top but need results from today's games to go their way. Only Nigeria are definitely out although Jersey like Scotland may struggle to gain on NRR and nab a top four spot with 3rd to 5th already on 6 points.

Jersey have posted 141/7 against Oman, Ireland will be willing Jersey to win whilst UAE (hosts) play Canada later which means Ireland will finish 2nd or 3rd minimum with Hong Kong unable to catch them and UAE playing Canada meaning they can't both win and join Ireland on 8 points.

Oman lost against Ireland, the Irish posting the 6th highest score so far in the competition, but won all other games. Jersey comfortably beat bottom of the pile Nigeria, and surprised the hosts by comfortably defending a total of 147, Oman needing to gain less than 0.2 NRR although from here I calculate they'd need to win off 87 balls or less to pip the Irish by 1.5919 NRR vs 1.5915, although hitting 144 off 88 I think would also count and slight variations, but there you have it. (I hope!!)


In light of that I doubt Scotland can catch Namibia, but I'll try the maths.

Reckon Oman need to score their's off 88 balls to pinch top off the Irish, that's not many more than Netherlands' 'target'

It's been a very interesting tournament. Except for the bottom two teams, everyone seemed to be able to beat everyone else. And if we had Zimbabwe and Nepal instead of Nigeria and Bermuda, it would have been even more competitive.

Ireland will be breathing a sigh of relief. Somewhat unconvincing progress.

A lot resting on the Canada UAE game. If Canada win they'll leapfrog UAE and HK into third spot, while defeat would see the others progress. If Canada win, whether UAE or HK get fourth will depend on the magnitude of victory.

Presumably UAE would need a huge win to topple Ireland and a convincing one to overtake Oman into second.

In other T20Is, Australia defeated Sri Lanka by 134 runs (233/2 v 99/9). Biggest margin of victory by runs for Australia, biggest margin of defeat for SL. Warner got a century, while Rajitha's 75 runs is the most conceded by a bowler in T20Is, passing Turkey's Tunahan Turan who conceded 70 v the Czech Republic in August.

UAE beat Canada and knock them out of the tournament.

Confirmed that PNG and Ireland qualify for the semi finals and automatically into the T20 WC. Oman will play Namibia and Netherlands will play UAE. The winner of those games will also qualify and progress to the semis, while Scotland and Hong Kong will match up against the losers for the last spots in the WC.

I have difficulty believing that Kane Richardson is one of the best XI t20 cricketers in Australia. With the world cup next year at home you'd think Aus would start taking the format a bit more seriously.

A very comfortable win for the Netherlands to qualify for the T20 World Cup. The result was never in doubt after UAE were 5/9.

While Namibia are hammering Oman in the other playoff. Not a good day for pool B!

It wasn't exactly a hammering when Namibia were 69-5 in the 13th over....but then Smit turned up and changed the game. Which makes me wonder why he was batting so low.

Would include the Australia Sri Lanka in this thread. Seems like the series is becoming just a glorified net for the Aussies.
