Qualification Rules for the Super Eight Stage of the World Cup

Following the Group stage the top 2 teams in each group will progress to the next phase (the Super Eight series). Each team will play every other team that has qualified for the Super Eight series except for the team that it played in the Group stage (six matches). The result of this match and any points gained will be carried forward to the Super Eight series. No other points from the Group stage will be carried forward to the Super Eight series.

The following point system will apply:

Win 2 Tie or no result 1 Loss 0

Group Matches
In the event of teams finishing on equal points in its Group, the right to play in the Super Eight series will be decided in the following order of priority:

• The team with the most wins in the Group matches will be
placed in the higher position.
• If there are teams with equal points and equal wins in the
Group matches then in such case the team with the higher
net run rate in the Group matches will be placed in the
higher position

• If following the net run rate calculation above there are
teams which are still equal, then the team with the higher
number of wickets taken per balls bowled in the Group
matches in which results were achieved will be placed in the
higher position.
• If still equal, the team which was the winner of the head to
head match played between them will be placed in the
higher position.
• In the highly unlikely event that teams cannot be separated
by the above this will be done by drawing lots.

However, for the purpose of the Super Eight stage, even if Australia finish second and South Africa first on the basis of point in its group, Australia will still be treated as A1 and South Africa as A2. Here, the ICC ratings will apply.

ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 - Rules for the Bowl Out

The following procedure will apply should the provision for a bowl out be adopted in any match.

1. Subject to weather conditions the bowl out will take place on the scheduled day of the match at a time to be determined by the referee.

2. The bowl out will take place on the pitch allocated for the match (the designated pitch) unless otherwise determined by the umpires in consultation with the ground authority and the referee.

3. A full set of stumps, including bails, will be pitched at both ends of the designated pitch.

4. The bowlers will all bowl from the same end.

5. The host television broadcaster shall be consulted as to which end of the ground the bowlers should bowl from, although the final decision will be taken by the referee.

6. CWC 07 shall ensure there is an adequate supply of dry, used balls.

7. The captains shall toss a coin for the right to decide which team bowls first or second in the bowl out. The referee will supervise the toss in the normal manner.

8. The captains shall nominate their five bowlers to each other, the umpires and referee prior to the toss. In the event of injury during the bowl out, the injured player may be replaced by another bowler.

9. The wicket keeper will not be permitted to stand up to the stumps.

10. No bowler will be allowed a practice delivery.

11. The umpires will stand in their normal positions and will be responsible for officially recording the number of ‘hits’ on the wicket. Their decision shall be final as to the result.

12. The referee will be responsible for making sure only the chosen bowlers actually bowl, and that no bowler bowls more than once until permitted to do so.

13. The bowls are taken alternately by the teams.

14. The team with the most number of hits after five bowls shall be declared the winner.

15. If, after both teams have taken five bowls, both have scored the same number of hits on the wicket, or have not scored any hits, bowls continue to be taken in the same order until one team has scored a hit more than the other from the same number of bowls. That team shall be declared the winner.

16. Each bowl is taken by a different player and all 10 eligible players (the wicket keeper shall not bowl) must bowl a delivery before any player can take a second bowl.

17. Only the eligible players and match officials are permitted to remain on the field of play when the bowls are being taken.

18. All players, except the bowler at the time and the wicket keeper, must remain just outside the 30 yard circle at mid-wicket.

19. Unless otherwise stated by the referee and on-field umpires, Law 24 and ICC standard playing condition 24.1 shall apply. In the case of an infringement the umpire shall call ‘no ball’ and the delivery shall be considered a miss and will not be retaken.

West Indies crush Pakistan in World Cup opener

Pakistan vs West Indies, 13th March 2007, Sabina Park in Jamaica
Pakistan Scorecard cum Summary:
187 all out in 47.2 overs, lost to West Indies by 54 runs
Man of the match: D Smith
Imran Nazir – 6
Hafeez – 11
Younis Khan – 9
Mohammad Yousuf – 37
Inzamam-ul-Haq – 36
Shoaib Malik – 62
Kamran Akmal – duck
Rana Naved – 11
Rao Ifthikar – 11
Umar Gul – 0
Kaneria not out without scoring

Nazir, Khan & Yousuf were caught by the Windies keeper Ramdin. While Powell got rid of both the openers, Bravo cleaned the last 3. Smith chipped in with 2 wickets. Taylore & Collymore took one each

Match 1: West Indies vs Pakistan - Windies Scorecard

West Indies: Scorecard cum Highlights
241/9 in 50 overs
Chris Gayle caught Akmal bowled Gul – 2 runs off 6 balls, Strike Rate: 33.33
Chanderpaul c Akmal b Ifthikar – 19 off 63, SR: 30.16
Sarwarn c Younis Khan b Ifthikar – 49 runs off 65 balls, Strike Rate: 75.38
Marlon Samuels c Malik b Hafeez – 63 off 70
( with 5 boundaries and 3 sixes, Samuel’s strike rate was 90%. He was the one who both steadied the West Indian ship and provided them momentum. He fell when the score was 181)
Brian Lara c Akmal b Hafeez – 37 off 56 balls
(He got out at exactly the right moment for Pakistan. If the Windies captain had been around for a couple of more overs, the score would have been well in excess of 250. Not that it mattered)
Bravo – 16 off 17
Ramdin failed, fell for 1
Smith was the one who gave the inning the much needed late momentum. His 32 off just 15 balls included 2 sixes and 3 boundaries
Taylor – run out for 1
Powell and Collymore not out, for 1 and 8 respectively
Rao Ifthikar finished with top honours for Pakistan, taking 3 wickets. Gul and Hafeez took 2 wickets each, while Kaneria took 1. Don't know why Inzamam didn't utilize Gul's full quota of 10 overs. Probably a calculation mistake - Gul's figures read 9-1-38-2.

World Cup Warms-Up from Today

In a few hours from now, action begins at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007, with 8 of the participating nations beginning the first of their warm-up matches today. The matches for the day are:

West Indies vs Kenya, Trelawny Stadium, Jamaica
( The Trelawny will also be the venue for the opening ceremony of the World Cup to be held on Sunday, 11th March)
South Africa vs Ireland, Trinidad
England vs Bermuda, St. Vincent
Sri Lanka vs Scotland, 3Ws Oval, Barbados

The remaining 8 teams will be seen in action tomorrow, followed by a no-play Wednesday before the teams begin the second round of warm-up from Thursday.

Tuesday's (6 March) warm-up schedule is:

India vs Netherlands, Trelawny, Jamaica
Australia vs Zimbabwe, St, Vincent
Newzealand vs Bangladesh, Barbados

Though all-rounder Andrew Symonds did participate in some light action on the park, Australia is in a bit of a worry right now with only 12 players ready to play in Tuesday's match against the African side. ( In the warm-up matches, each team is allowed to utlilize upto 13 players. Obviously, these warm-up matches do not have official ODI status.)

"Take your party to cricket city Trinidad, where the rambunctious annual carnival seems to last all year - laughter and celebration are just another day's work for a supremely fun loving people."
- Carmen Roberts, writing for Travel Plus

Every year, in the month of February, the island nations of Trinidad & Tobago come alive with the annual carnival. This year the excitement is that much more as locals wait for an extended party this year, as the world's biggest cricket show unfurls in the Carribean. Music & Dance are as much a part of life here as cricket - no match at the Queen's Park stadium goes unaccompanied by singing & feverish chanting. So it's anyone's guess what the atmosphere is going to be like during the World Cup.

Getting there:

Air India, American Airlines and British West Indies Airways (BWIA) fly from Indian metros via London and New York to Port of Spain. The islands are also well-connected from Australia and UK. ( directly or indirectly through the States).

Hotels in Trinidad & Tobago:

Chancellor Hotel, St. Anns, Phone: +1 186 623 0883
Hilton Trinida, Port of Spain, phone: + 1 868 623 0883
Other good hotels include the Hilton Tobago, The Gingerbread House and The Oceanpoint.


Smokey and Bunty's on Western Main Road. St. Jame's is another popular bar.
Food: Veni Mange serves you authentic local food, great ambience too.

Don't miss:

ICC Cricket Ratings & Super Eight: Super Confusion

"Team names for the Super Eight stage are indicative based on the top two teams from the Group Stage qualifying. 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, for example, Scotland qualifies instead of Australia, Scotland will become A1."

That's an
extract from the World Cup Schedule page on the official International Cricket Committee site. On this page, the ICC has shown us the likely contenders in the Super Eight matches - for example if the match is between A2 & B1, then the likely contestants should be India and Australia. It was funny why the ICC had gone to such ridiculous lengths to explain - that's where the fine print becomes important. Read on..

What the fine print means is that the ICC Cricket Ratings will rule. For example, even if India beats all other teams in its group, Sri Lanka may still finish on top of the group as far as the Super Eight is concerned because it's the ICC Cricket Ratings that will decide that.

I also don't know what the ICC means by that last statement: "If Scotland qualifies instead of Australia...how do we know who is qualifying instead of whom..what if Scotland and the Netherlands qualify?"
