Also noteworthy - Duckworth and Millman did not play in the Wild Card Play-off and got AO MD WC's. Saville lost 1st round...
Do not play the Play-off and you will be better off...
All good points, they need to change the wildcard playoff and make it more attractive to play. Otherwise they may as well make it a playoff for a qualifying wildcard. Still in the end I think they got it mostly right across all the tournaments this summer.
