But the flaw, meaning the life that he got, was mitigated by the overall value of his achievement and gave him the A instead of A- (excellent) or B+ (very good). Being not out with 5 overs and a handful of 1s and 2s to go would have given him the "+" ...
Didn't Tamim get drooped off Utseya by Chigumbura at 116? He scored a further 38, but BD might have won even if Chigumbura held on to the catch. BTW, Coventry was dropped by Rusel at 13. He scored another 181 only. The question is then, is a chanceless 116 enough to get an A++?
