Important lessons about cricket to be learnt from this:
Here's the proof :
Firstly, we reasonably assume that South Africa would bat the full 50 overs. Now, apparently the best bowler of the Bermuda team was able to manage 4 correct balls out of 14. Extrapolating, that means she would take at least 3 overs of attempted bowling to complete 1 proper over. Assuming Bermuda to be equally 'proficient' in batting and bowling, we can safely say that the accuracy of every successive bowler is half of the previous one. So if each bowler bowls 10 attempted overs each, this would amount to only (3.33+1.66+.83+.42+.21 = 6.5) say, 8 legal overs to be generous. Also, we have to consider that one bowler can bowl 10 overs out of 50 before dropping to half her previous accuracy due to fatigue.
The next 50 overs of bowling would yield half as much, i.e 4 more proper overs. The next 50 overs only 2 overs. Going on in this way (and rounding off as required) to reach 50 legal overs, it would take the Bermuda team atleast 24,71,29,550 attempted overs.
Now an average over takes 15 minutes to be bowled. Due to fatigue let every subsequent set of 50 overs be bowled 5 min slower than the first.
Then the total time taken to bowl 50 legal overs is 3.05365 x 10^(15) minutes, or 5.80599 x 10^(9) years. 5.8 billion years is obviously longer than 4.5 billion years which is when the sun will run out of Hydrogen and explode destroying the earth. Hence only one of the two things can happen :
Thus we see that if only Bermuda had won the toss and fielded first, there was no way they could lose. Hence the Lolland expert cricket review board declared that 'the toss decided the game, South Africa was just lucky they won this time'...
If you dare to disagree with the experts, tell us why, and you had better be right...
