Dubai 2016 Stats

I headed back in time to post Dubai’s stats. It’s surprising to see the USA as second best considering they only won the Challenge Trophy. But nearly beating South Africa will boost your numbers.

New Zealand’s poor performance is backed up by the numbers. I thought they might miss the quarter-finals for the first time after this tournament. But they’ve maintained their perfect mark and are back┬áto being one of the top teams.
