    Yes, but he didn't list them in order of how many points they are on - he listed them in order of which group they are in...

    A: Australia
    A: South Africa

    (either way)

    B: Sri Lanka
    B: India/Bangladesh
    (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
    D: Ireland
    (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!)

    Doesn't most of that depend on who wins what? Only New Zealands place is 100% secure so far. (West Indies, Australia, Ireland, South Africa have all made the Super 8 but whether they are 1st or 2nd in the pool is yet to be determined).

    The Super 8 matches aren't determined by group positions. Australia will be A1 even if they finish second.

    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.

    No, they won't, it doesn't work that way.

    Indeed, the reason for Sandman and Athlai's benefit was for tourists and broadcasters to be able to plan out their itineraries and schedules properly, well in advance, iirc. Seems a reasonable system to me.

    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...

    Apart from the fact that's not guranteed at all, it won't matter - Australia will still be A1 and SA A2.

    With a Super 8 consisting of
    Australia
    South Africa
    Sri Lanka
    India
    New Zealand
    England
    West Indies
    Ireland

    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

    So was Pakistan supposed to be D1?

    Since they are not progressing through, do West Indies stay D2 and Ireland move up to D1?
