    *Official* Champions Trophy Discussion

    The ICC has announced the groupings and format of the upcoming Champions Trophy.

    Format:

    - 4 groups, with 3 teams each, participating in round robin play.
    - The top 2 teams from each group will advance and be placed in two groups of 4.
    - The top 2 teams from each group will advance to the semifinals.

    The Cricket Web XI will compete in the relatively weak group C, containing England and Bangladesh. The World Cup runners-up will therefore expect to advance comfortably to the second round.

    Group A appears to be the keenest of the bunch, with South Africa, New Zealand, and World Cup Champions, the West Indies.

    The Groups:

    Code:
    Group A		Group B	G	Group C		Group D
    South Africa	Australia	CW XI		India
    New Zealand	Sri Lanka	England		Pakistan
    West Indies	Zimbabwe	Bangladesh	Kenya

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    When does it start, when can we expect the squad to be named and so on?

    Sounds exciting.

    Mr Jamme Gray, head schedule maker of the ICC was given the honour of making the schedule and groupings.

    He is no relation to the CW Red cricketer Jamee Gray (or that's what they say....)
    Or something.

    Yeah I am pumped for this, ODI's are our strength and I think we've been given a great opportunity to at least advance through to the next stage.

    When will squads, location etc be announced?

    Anyway - GO CW!

    Where do the other two semi finalists come from them

    Looking forward to clashing with my old friend Tresco again (hopefully)

    Awesome!

    We`re in a damn good group, really should go through, we`ve got it over England, and Bangladesh are Bangladesh. Only two games in the initial stage however, so no slip-ups. Should be great.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
