Also now open to all types of shenanigans going into the final round of matches.
Let’s say Team A are already guaranteed to be in the provincial final after winning their first three games. Last group match for them is basically a dead rubber now.
They play Team B in the last match who need a win to reach the provincial final. Team A are hardly going to show their hand and put out their strongest available team, considering they might be playing them again in a few weeks time. Also can impact Team C who are also battling to reach the provincial final but know that Team B - who they are jostling with to reach the final - won’t face a side going hell for leather.
