CWC19: NRR’s dependence on pitch conditions make it uncertain criterion to determine teams’ progress

The problem arises when Net Run Rate is identified as a criterion. In the current scenario, at the end of the Pakistan vs South Africa league game, England (+1.457) have the best NRR. India (0.809) with as many wins and no losses are trailing far behind while Australia (0.849) with one win more than England are also trailing the host country. Surely, this is not a coincidence.
