    The A1, A2, B1 and so on are fixed to a country, regardless of whether they finish second or first (if they finish third the non-seed takes their slot). It's the same as what was done in the World Cup in WI so you can follow your team in advance, up to the semi finals.

    So for instance Australia are B1, whether they qualify first or second in their group they're still B1 and will still be in this Group F.

    Here is the list:

    Group A: Bangladesh, South Africa (A1), West Indies (A2)
    Group B: England (B2), Australia (B1), Zimbabwe
    Group C: New Zealand (C1), Sri Lanka (C2), Kenya
    Group D: India (D2), Pakistan (D1), Scotland

    So basically Group F is expected to be WI, Australia, SL, Pakistan and Group E is expected to be SA, England, NZ and India.

    Thanks for that....I will change/Edit my post .

    But don't you think Its a bit ridiculous of the ICC to fix things like that....It eliminates the Surprise element the thrill of the variation that could be brought on by an upset result etc...Just my personal opinion.

    So Group F is pretty much likely to be Australia + any of Pakistan, SL, WI.

    Its almost certain that Australia and Pakistan will go through.

    Well it didn't make any difference in the World Cup in West Indies because that was one big round robin anyway, with this it certainly does make a difference because it makes the first group stage a bit of a pointless exercise/glorified warmup in most cases. The groups are determined by seedings, but the seedings are obviously a bit worthless when they're based on ODI rankings, from the time when SA were ranked number 1. I can see the reasoning of why they did it like this, because the tournament is compressed it would result in a mad rush by fans after the first groups are completed, but this will happen anyway with the semis and final so there's arguments for and against whatever you do.

    Definitely. Zimbabwe could possibly beat England (unlikely) and Australia may not even make it in if they beat England depending on how much they win by and how much England beat Zim (if they do).

    Zimbabwe is in a great position.

    Zimbabwe is in a great position.
    It would be almost impossible if England beat Zimbabwe and and Australia beat England for Aus not to go through, as in they would both have to be wins on the last ball or by 1 run or somthing very simular..
    On the other hand in that scenario it would be very possibe for England to miss out.
    So England Need a big win over Zimbabwe to make sure they go through..

    Just to clear up any uncertainty:

    Bangladesh now replace West Indies in this group.
    If England beat Australia (or there's a tie/draw/rainout) then Zimbabwe will replace Australia in this group.

    So it's likely to be England, India (?), Bangladesh and Sri Lanka (?).

    Or something.

    England have a net run rate of +2.5 at the moment, it'd have to be an absolute obliteration by Australia for the Antipodeans to finish first.
