    Why have some teams played twice and others haven't played at all yet, are they trying to bunch games together for teams so they can get form up or is it just a quirk of the scheduling?

    It's odd how the importance of 50s and 100s distorts the game and it gets little comment. From a team perspective they are irrelevant, but the importance of the personal targets changes how batsmen play. Players too often get out after getting a 50 or 100, and the pressure of approaching a 100 makes batsmen more conservative or nervous.

    Root and Buttler both got out soon after their hundreds. Essentially they lost concentration and focus, which is rather unprofessional, but because they got their centuries that will be overlooked. If the 100 held no importance, England would probably have won, as Root and Buttler were playing well until the personal milestone.

    Sounds plausible enough but need a graph showing how often batters get out just after passing 50/100 milestones compared with the rest.

    Here are some numbers just looking at world cup centuries: List of Cricket World Cup centuries

    167 centuries (109 wickets) total up to Buttler's.

    Out for 100 - 7 times
    Out for 101 - 8 times
    Out for 102 - 5 times
    Out for 103 - 5 times
    Out for 104 - 5 times
    Total out for 100-104 - 30 times (28%)
    Out for 105-109 - 12 times (11%)

    Out for 100-109 - 42 times (39%)
    Out for 110-119 - 25 times (23%
    Out for 120-129 - 10 times (9%)
    Out for 130-139 - 12 times (11%)
    Out for 140-149 - 8 times (7%)
    Out for >150 - 12 times (11%)

    I'm not going to plot it, but over a quarter of the centurions lost their wicket between 100 and 104.

    Pretty conclusive evidence that. Although maybe it's not always down to letting concentration slide, maybe they're also getting out because once past the mark they're starting to let rip and taking more risks in the process.

    But either way it looks like you're right, the landmark is clearly playing too much on their minds.

    Another thought is, maybe if they did not concentrate so hard on getting to their ton fewer would actually reach the magic number in the first place? :rolleyes:

    There is also the well documented slow down in the nervous 90s.

    For some the 90s is a problem that they struggle with, including some good batsmen.

    But for others it does seem to focus the mind.

    Another example of a batsman getting out after reaching a milestone. Bairstow gets his 50, barely troubled, and then is out without adding to his score.

    Warner: 56 runs from 84 balls, his slowest half century in ODIs; 14 dot balls in a row at one point; runs out the batsman who was scoring runs. A terrible innings for Australia when chasing a record world cup score.

    But the stats will show another half century.

    I don't suppose players can get the milestone figures out of the head when they have been with them in mind for their entire career, I was only a second XI club cricketer but I never looked at my score on the board just the total we needed, always had someone at the other end how would tell me if I needed to push on, played with plenty of arseholes who knew exactly what their score was and behaved like kids when they got out, had one bloke would go home when he was out when we batted second.

    Mohammed Amir is a gun! I think he’s the best out there at the moment, particularly in England.
