- England lost to the Netherlands but off the last ball of the match.
- Australia lost to the Windies, who won with more than 4 overs to spare.
Australia, on the other hand, need a massive win against Sri Lanka and then hope that the Windies-Sri Lanka match is also a blowout. Does not look good from here.
The most likely scenario is that just four days into the tournament, both England and Australia will be out of it. Good for them. It will give them lots of time to prepare for the Ashes, which seems to have been occupying their minds for quite a few months now.
As the ancient Chinese curse goes: Be careful what you wish for, it may come true.
