30 May 1999 (50-over match)

0.1

the calcs for today is that Aust need to win by 3 overs to guarantee themselves a spot in the super 6

0.2

McGrath to Campbell, no run, again, thru to the keeper

but they must win to ensure giving themselves a chance of making it

CA Walsh b McGrath 6 (23m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

that's lunch, and we'll have have an extended session ebcause of the less than perfect West Indian effort tune in at 1400 GMT to see what carnage and embarressment Ambrose and Walsh can inflict on the Australian batsmen McGrath's effort is the 4th best bowling by Australia in ODIs, and the 4th best for any team in World Cups Warne's analysis the 2nd most economical for a 10 over spell for Australia in ODIs, only beaten by Micky Malone's 10-5-9-2 v WI at Melbourne in 1981/82 now I want everyone to take a good sit down for this shocking news: it is raining in Manchester. A cover is on and we might have a little delay until the restart Match State: Rain delays the start of the Aust innings we've put the CI resident calculator man to work and have come up a few figures: Australia needs to win within 47.2 overs to guarantee a super 6 position. Now, from Australia's point of view, they want WI rather NZ to be in the super 6 so that they have 2 Super 6 points if Australia win in 47.2 overs, that would leave NZ chasing (for example) 181 off 19.4 overs to beat WI. if Aust win in 40 overs, then NZ would chase something like 181 in 23.5 overs. Aus win in 25, NZ would be chasing 181 in 34.1 overs. this is all assuming Scotland set a target of 180 in the 1st innings tomorrow, which seems roughly a reasonable expectation. covers are off. Match is underway
