As the preliminary groupings are (#1,#8,#9) (2,7,10) (3,6,11) and (4,5,12), this means that the second group will be (runner up,India, Australia).
Now *that* is something to introspect - how India messed up not just this tournament but possibly the next one too.
that's the downside of doing badly but I wouldn't mind India being in a tough group and then qualifying if they are playing well rather than qualifying by beating a couple of minnows then getting destroyed in S8
If India qualifies from a tough group then it would only mean that they are playing well .... and thus would be one of the favs and a team worth watching
