    Smile Doubt in using "has got to be"

    Dear teacher ,

    Following is the use of " has got to be " as per my understanding . Please let me know if any of the use is not correct .

    [1] Jack has got to be the man of the match . He has been performing very well .
    (MEANING - JACK must be the man of the match .He deserves it )

    [2] Jack has got to be the winner . Otherwise his carrier will end .
    (MEANING - JACK need to be the winner .)

    [3] Jack has got to be the man of the match .Nobody else has performed well .
    (MEANING - JACK is to be the winner.)

    Please tell me if my understanding is correct .


    Thanks a lot .

    Thanks a lot .
    I don't understand the meaning you are trying to apply to case 3.

    b
    PS Note 'carrier' -> /'kærɪə/; 'career' -> /kə'rɪə/ . The different spelling in the second syllable changes the sound of the first.
