    Something NO ONE HAS NOTICED

    Well check this out
    i just visited ICC website & found Schedule of the matches
    something i ignored last time, would like you guys to take a look at & tell if i'm rite or wrong
    Super Eight - Groups
    Group E
    A1
    B2
    C1
    D2

    Group F
    B1
    A2
    C2
    D1


    The top two ranked teams in each group are seeded 1 and 2. They will retain this seeding for the Super Eights stage, irrespective of whether they finish first or second in their group, unless they are knocked out by team 3 in their group. In this instance, team 3 replaces the position of the team they knock out.

    For example, if Bangladesh wins Group A and India comes second, for the purposes of the Super Eights, India will still be A1 and Bangladesh will be A2. If for example, Ireland qualifies instead of India, Ireland will become A1.

    This formula provides spectators with certainty as to the location of team matches.


    now what i can understand is Group E will have INDIA, ENGLAND, AUSTRALIA & SOUTH AFRICA
    Group F will consist of PAKISTAN, BANGLADESH, SRILANKA & NEWZEALAND
    No matter what the standings are
    unless 1 of these will be knocked out of the tournament by the team which was not giving the rankings of like D8 etc

    yeah i'm happy with this group lol
    i wish westindies qualifying rather than srilankans
    not against srilanka
    but it'll be a bit easier for Pakistan to qualify for the semi's lol
    if westindies qualify for super 8's
    probably Newzealand & Pakistan 'll qualify for the semi's
    & from the other group Australia & India 'll qualify, that's my guess
    Semi finals
    India vs Pakistan
    Australia Vs Newzealand
    it'll be great lol

    good idea this, ensures big crowds at big games, and buying a 90 ticket isn't a lottery.

    **** yeah but it's a bad idea too, one group is really tough, other group is relatively easier****

    I lol'd.

    Back on topic, I don't think it's a good idea. Teams performing best in the league are best, no matter what their ranks are. Now, even if England beat Pakistan, they will still end up in a tough group. And, don't tell me that points of League stage won't be carried over??

    Didn't Know that until I read the Cricinfo Article, unfair to the team that Wins the Group. But gives a Level Playing to a team like Bangladesh or Ireland and to the Runners Up in the Windies/Lanka/Aus Group.

    We shouldn't just focus on times when the ticket-buyers were lucky though. Sometimes they'll end up getting a worse match than they thought they would get when they bought the tickets.

    Been a few comments in the media here about England's tough draw, but to be honest if I'd have done the draw it would probably have been harder.

    My Rankings would have been

    1. India
    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
