    you are right!!!
    england will be in group E with Australia, india & south africa

    2. South Africa
    3. Australia
    4. Sri Lanka
    5. New Zealand
    6. Pakistan
    7. West Indies
    8. England
    9. Bangladesh
    10. Ireland
    11. Netherlands
    12. Scotland

    and the groups would have been India, England, Bangladesh(1,8,9), SA, WI, Ireland (2,7,10), Australia, Pakistan, Netherlands(3,6,11) and SL, NZ, Scotland (4,5,12)

    Then the next stage would be India, SL, WI, Pakistan & Australia, SA, NZ, England/Bangladesh

    Suppose some might argue over whether England should be ranked ahead of Bangladesh or behind but it wouldn't matter in this scenario anyway. Super stage would be a little bit easier with NZ instead of India but then the group is a lot harder
    but Sir, ICC ranked teams according to the last T20 results
    only because there is no rankings system
    so the best thing for the ICC for he next tournament would be to introduce RANKINGS FOR THE TWENTY20

    Why would you have Windies above England, eh??

    They were thrashed by Bang, last time around.

    Also, reading your post makes me feel 'England are T20 minnows'...What The______???

    Because we've played them in 4 twenty20's and lost 3, including getting creamed in the last 2.

    I wouldn't say we are minnows, we are in the third tier of Twenty20 at the moment with Bangladesh and West Indies. FTR I would group India, SA, Aus and NZ, SL, Pak as the two other tiers. Pakistans place is maybe debatable on their current form but their record in twenty20 is very good

    again i would say, you can't rank any team without seeing teams playing much of matches
    none knows, maybe England wins this time & become Number 1
    or maybe westindies end up winning the tournament
    anyone can win it, except Pakistan lol

    It just occurred to me, isn't this system self perpetuating? I mean at least one of India, South Africa and Australia won't make the semis so we'll have the same problem next time?

    if ICC doesn't introduce T20 rankings, i'm afraid it'll happen next time also
    it's unfair, but you can expect this from ICC

    So one of the Super8 groups might end up being:
    Ireland (through), Neth (have to not lose by NRR of 1.25), SL/WI (open), NZ. (through)

    Other one is:
    India(through), England(through), Aus/WI (open), SA (through).
