this was a match that promised nothing, and fully delivered on that promise

NZ's net run rate balloons out to -0.764, which pretty much ensure's Zimbabwe's path to the semi finals as well, unless Pak and Aus win, and NZ cane India

tomorrow's match is Pakistan v Zimbabwe. If Pakistan win, they qualify for the semi finals, and India are knocked out. If Zimbabwe win, then they qualify for the semis and the other 2 qualifiers will remain to be decided from the other 4 teams.
