I don't get it. Once SL got 238, it was impossible for India to make the finals. Both teams were on 15 points, but SL's NRR was far superior and could not possibly drop below India's.

Yet, cricinfo commentators and anywhere in the news were saying that India could still play in the finals; cricinfo right up to the last over of the game.

AU had to score 239 in less than 4 overs if the NRR was to change enough to elevate India.
