A: South Africa
B: Sri Lanka
(could also go in any order)
C1: New Zealand
C2: England (Kenya)
(Most probably England yet this crazy tournament has caused upsets.)
D: West Indies
(could go either way )
So far I have just put into spreadsheet the current averages of all the teams players (for no real reason)
Seven teams have been put in, yet I can't split the hair between Bang or India yet, and can't be bothered doing a team that won't get through. (You better win England!)

The Super 8 matches aren't determined by group positions. Australia will be A1 even if they finish second.
I know a place where a royal flush
Can never beat a pair
If Australia finishes 2nd they will be A2.
New Zealand is the only team with a definite position in the super 8. Even if they lose to Canada (lol) they will still qualify 1st as they have 2 wins and beat both other super 8 possibilities. All the other positions are yet to be determined as the top 2 teams from each of those pools play each other on friday and saturday. India has to beat Sri Lanka or they're out, providing Bangladesh beats Bermuda of course.
Well, that just sounds stupid. I guess i'll wait till South Africa beats Australia on Saturday and we'll see then. If someone could post a link to confirm the super 8 positioning, that would be great, can't seem to find anything on cricinfo...
With a Super 8 consisting of
Having Ireland and England () there the sides who carry their points through from the group stage will have an even bigger advantage. And ofcourse in Group A both teams are favoured for the semis.
So, looks like the final 4 will come down to RSA, AUS, SRL, NZL, WI
I'm actually not sure about that.
