    Yeah, we play them in a series, if not two, each year
    NZ and AUS to get through to there last Super 8 match unbeaten!!!
    That match is gonna be a cracker, decider of who goes through first. And at least if it happens that way they won't meet in the semis

    I think the final order will be

    Australia
    New Zealand
    South Africa
    Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka is the most in danger of missing out but only if they lose against England. If they do then England has a great chance of qualifying. You can write off teh West Indies, Bangladesh and Ireland.

    I really can't see how anyone would want to back against Aus-SA-NZ-SL.

    Especially if SL beat England as expected today.

    Sri lanka came into the Super 8's with 2 points [which South Africa didn't do] and a very good NRR, thats why i am expecting them to finish ahead of the Proteas.
    Yeah, but Sri Lanka had played Bangladesh, while South Africa had played Australia. I expect Australia to beat SL and SA to beat B'desh, so the advantage SL had with those two points is then nullified.

    I am expecting the Proteas to lose against the Black Caps, and Sri Lanka to win against the Black Caps [because i think Murali would mesmerize the Kiwis].
    Presuming England don't beat anyone important and Australia don't lose to anyone important, that'd then leave three teams all on equal points.

    I am picking basically the same as every one else, I never thought that England or the West Indies were going to advance past the Super Eight stage. Before the tournament started, I did have India as one of my semi final picks though, in favour of Sri Lanka.

    Australia
    New Zealand
    Sri Lanka

    I think England & West Indies were the outside teams who had a chance of making the finals. Seems niether of them are up to the standard this world cup!

    It'll take a hell of a turnaround for either of them to get there now.

    Indeed, and not only that but they'll also a turnaround of the opposite kind by Sri Lanka, South Africa or NZ. Of those I believe only NZ is capable of it...but I'm desperately hoping they won't do it.

    Here's a suggestion... presuming everyone beats Ban and Ireland who still has to play them...

    Eng beat Aus
    SA beat WI
    SL beat NZ
    SA beat NZ
    SL beat Aus
    SA beat Eng
    WI beat Eng
    NZ then have to beat Aus to get through...

    Don't worry, I'm sure at least one of those will go not-according-to-plan.
