Even if India tops Group B, it still remains in 2nd place. Why?


Question:It is a strange scenario in world cup scheduling. Even if India were to win all their matches in Group B, it would not "top" the group. They will be given a "B2" status - making them the second team in the group. This would decide their schedule of matches in their Super 8 stage. I wonder why this strange decision has been made?

Explanation: India wins all its group matches. SL wins all but against India. But still SL will top the group and India will be second. Wonder why?

Will Indian win the final test In south Africa?

The teams have been placed in the different groups based on ranking from 2005. According to rankings, Australia was in first place, Sri Lanka in 2nd place, New Zeland 3rd place, Pakistan 4th place. Hence these teams have been placed on top of each Group. India's ranking was 8 and hence they have been placed in 2nd place in the group.

The fixtures for the Super 8 league relate to A1 being the first seed in group A, A2 the second, B1 the first in group B etc, as the expected qualifiers from each group. It does not refer to the actual league placings from round one.

If these two teams do qualify they will be seeded in position 1 or 2 as specified regardless of whether they finish first or second in their group. For example, if South Africa wins Group A and Australia comes second, for the purposes of the Super Eights, South Africa will still be A2 and Australia will be A1.

If these two teams do not qualify from their group they will be replaced in their indicative position by the team that qualifies instead of them. For example, if Scotland qualifies instead of Australia, Scotland will become A1.
