    B's stronger, because Bangladesh >>> Zimbabwe and Ireland can produce upsets fairly easily.
    5-0

    Ireland is also in Group B. That makes more chance of upsets. I feel Either Ireland & Netherlands should have been in Group A n Kenya, Canada in group B to make it more equal. B.Desh, Ireland n Netherlands >>>UPSET>>> Zimbabwe, Canada n Kenya.

    Bangladesh can no longer be considered minnows playing @ home n considering the form they currently are in. I say West Indies will have to work harder than Bangladesh to reach the QFs.

    If NZ don't sort their **** out in the subcontinent then Zimbabwe will be a nail biter for me.

    Ireland will be limited by the foreign conditions. If this were England or NZ they would be in with a hell of a chance for the quarters.

    As per the above comments, easily group B the more difficult one with the inclusion of Bangladesh who must fancy their chances of continuing their good run in familiar conditions, and of course Ireland after their exploits in making it past the group stages in the 2007 WC and the Twenty20 version in 2009.

    Sri Lanka and Australia (and Pakistan if certain players are available) look the only sides that can win in Group A, sadly.

    Yeah I mentioned Ireland can cause upsets.

    But yeah, good calls.

    Group B looks tougher although arguably SL is just about as good in the sub-continent as India.

    But I still think that a team from Group A will win despite being the weaker group.

    Group B, definitely, mainly due to Bangladesh's home form and NZ's recent debacle.

    Sri Lanka and Australia could be considered just about as good as India and South Africa. But I would have India as favourites.

    Pakistan are no longer as good as England, though they remain unpredictable.

    New Zealand have fallen at least as far, if not further than the West Indies.

    Zimbabwe are much less likely to cause issues than Bangladesh.

    Canada & Kenya aren't as good as Ireland & the Netherlands, especially considering recent T20 upsets.

    Group A is stronger by virtue of having two strong Asian sides and the World Champions. I would also have New Zealand over West Indies.

    It might have better sides, but I still think that Group B has better depth. Bangladesh, Ireland and the Netherlands are more likely to cause upsets than Zimbabwe, Canada and Kenya.

    Ireland aren't in ideal conditions to cause upsets imo, whereas Zimbabwe has decent spin options and they make me pretty nervous.

    I would agree on Bangladesh; not too sure about Ireland and Netherlands. I reckon Zimbabwe are more likely to cause an upset than those two.
