Consider this scenario. Bottom of the ninth; two batters out; one run down. And you’re the Chicago Cubs playing the Yankees. And it’s Game One of the World Series. That’s the baseball equivalent of what just happened in the Women’s World Cup, where the deeply unfancied Sri Lankan cricket team was playing the World Champions, England—who are better paid, better resourced, and altogether, well, better. There was one ball left in the game, and the Sri Lankans needed one run. If Sri Lanka won, it would be the first time the side had ever beaten England in a one-day game. And it happened to be the World Cup. No pressure, then. You can see what happened below.
