    Can someone please tell me how the Supoer 8 works.

    I get a few mixed stories. My understanding is that if you finish your group (say group A) at the top you then become A1 and will play all the B/C/D2 teams. If you finish 2nd you get the A2 and play all teh B/C/D1 teams? If this correct? So really it does matter if you win your round robin games because you get the play the lesser teams to an extend.

    ?????

    All play all (with the exception of the other qualifier in the group you were in)

    Or you could say - all play all, but without the repeat of the group games already played.

    I was adding to what Marc said by way of pointing-out that the game from the preliminary groups is retained rather than replayed.

    He listed them in order of group, rather than ranking.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    But aren't WI currently on-track to finish with points that'd put them above England?
