    World Cup is on now. In recent games Bangladesh have beaten South Africa and Pakistan have beaten England. However Pakistan also only just managed to see out their 20 overs in a 50-over game against West Indies, so they are as inconsistent as usual.

    Pakistan-England was a cracker of a game! Pakistan was put in and (justifying their inconsistent tag) made almost 350, which England just failed to chase.

    Another victim for Bangladesh - West Indies scored 321 which they disposed of with the small matter of 8.3 overs to spare.

    That moves Bangladesh to fifth but at the moment Aus, NZ, India and England are a pretty clear top four.

    Eoin Morgan vs Afghanistan 148 (71), 17x6,4x4. New ODI record for most sixes then out the ball after breaking it.

    Noticed this :

    Semi Final
    If a Semi-Final is tied, the teams shall compete in a Super Over to determine which team progresses to the Final.

    Has this ever been used in an ODI? Don't recall seeing it.

    I don't recall it either. Often the arrangement is that the team which qualifies higher wins a draw or washout. Presumably this still applies for a washout, or a tie in the super over.

    Yes that appears to be the case for the semis:

    Semi Final
    If a Semi-Final is tied, the teams shall compete in a Super Over to determine which team progresses to the Final.
    If following a tie, weather conditions prevent the Super Over from being completed, or if the match is abandoned or a no result at the end of the reserve day, then the team which proceeds to the Final will be the team that finished in the higher position in the League Stage.

    Final
    In the event of a tied final, the teams shall compete in a Super Over to determine which team is the winner.
    If following a tie, weather conditions prevent the Super Over from being completed, or if the match is abandoned or a no result at the end of the reserve day, the teams shall be declared joint winners.

    Sri Lanka somehow defeated a very modest target against England but someone would still have to do very badly in remaining matches for the final four to shift.

    NZ and Aus are at the top of the ladder. NZ are as yet undefeated, though surviving a scare vs West Indies. That was an exciting end to a game.

    Yes aussies beat England to see the latter teetering on the edge of the top 4.
