T20 World Cup: How upsets became par for the course | Cricket News

When India won the first T20 World Cup back in 2007, it was an annoying thing. But in those days, all the teams were learning the ropes and the element of surprise surrounding India’s victory was more as the Blue Team had a disastrous 50 win. World Cup the begin of the year.
Since then, in the six more World Cups before that, strange things have happened here and there. But there has never been a World Cup like this, where disturbances have become almost the norm, of course.

From the first day of the tournament until the end of the stages of the tournament, the so-called minnows had wins that made it impossible to predict who would finish in the top 4. On Sunday as well, it was a great Dutch victory South Africa opened Group 2 and Pakistan cashed in on reaching the semi-finals. But then they had to beat a spirited Bangladeshi who were alive until Sunday.
TOI looks at some of the reasons behind the increased number of incidents in the league. . .
CONTACT WITH PRIVATE RIGHTS IN THE WORLD: Many players from the so-called smaller teams are playing in franchise leagues around the world. So they are used to facing the daily delivery pressure under tremendous pressure. The fact that these players have not faced top opponents at the World Cup for the first time has given them the confidence to play to the heart and that is reflected in the teams’ performances.
AUSTRALIA CONDITIONS: R Ashwin has been in Australia with the Indian team since 2011. He said on Saturday that he has never faced conditions like these. In this part of the world, international cricket usually starts a little later and that means more responsive throws, creating better chances for pitchers. It caught some of the larger teams off guard and has created more opportunities for smaller teams to make an impact.


RAIN FACTORY: T20 is a short format that often gives smaller teams a better chance of competing. And in this World Cup, with the truancy weather, the matches are often shorter and the distance between the bigger and smaller teams is even reduced. It was the weather that played a huge role in England’s loss to Ireland, a result that kept Group 1 open until Saturday.
QUALITY SUPPORT STAFF IN SMALLER TEAMS: India’s 2011 World Cup Champion Gary Kirsten was part of the support team of the Dutch team that beat South Africa on Sunday. Most teams have coaches who have played cricket at the highest level and they have been able to make the players believe that it is impossible not to play against the big boys.
Namibia beat Sri Lanka: The African minnows beat the 2014 T20 world champion with 55 runs on the first day making the first round extremely exciting
Scotland beat West Indies: The Scots beat two-time champions the Windies by 42 runs, putting Nicholas Pooran’s team in the leg after their first round of Round 1.
Ireland beat the Windies: Windies may qualify for Super 12s with a win on this game, but players who prefer Paul Stirling and Lorcan Tuckerwho has experience playing franchise cricket, played a key role in getting WI in the door
Ireland beat England: Ireland showed enough maturity to deal with the frivolous weather even as they suffered their first match in the Super 12. Andrew Balbirnie, Joshua Little – with franchise experience – did just enough when Britain’s late boom was halted on the tracks by the rain.
Zimbabwe beat Pakistan: Probably the biggest shock of the tournament before Sunday. Zimbabwe bowlers have been very helpful Perth The condition and complacency of the Pak beaters in pursuit of 131 to win led to amazing results
Netherlands beat South Africa: The Proteas were the team of the tournament until last Sunday. This Sunday they will go home, courtesy of the Netherlands.
