How the teams progress..The tournament involves two group stages and there are seedings. In the Group stage, the 16 teams have been divided into four groups of four and seeded according to their world rankings. There will be six matches in the Super 8s, with each team playing each other, except for the one team they have already played in the group stage.
Group A: Australia (1), South Africa (5), Scotland (12), Netherlands (16)|
Group B: Sri Lanka (2), India (8), Bangladesh (11), Bermuda (15)
Group C: New Zealand (3), England (7), Kenya (10), Canada (14)
Group D: Pakistan (4), West Indies (6), Zimbabwe (9), Ireland (13)
Each team will play every other team in its group. They will get two points for a win, one point for a tie or no result and nought for a defeat.
The top two teams from each group will progress to the next phase - the Super 8s.
If any teams finish equal on points at the end of the group stages, a series of tiebreakers will be used in order, until one team emerges superior.
Tiebreaker 1: Team with the most wins
Tiebreaker 2: Team with the higher net run-rate
Tiebreaker 3: Team with the most wickets taken by balls bowled
Tiebreaker 4: Winner of the game between two level teams
Tiebreaker 5: Draw lots
Super 8sThe top four teams from the Super 8s will progress to the semi-finals and for any tiebreakers the criteria listed in the group stage above will be used.
The super 8s seeding is indicative-based on the ranked top two teams from group stage qualifying.
If these two teams qualify they will be seeded in position one or two as specified regardless of whether they finish first or second in their group.
Semi-finalsThe team who finished first in the Super 8s will play the team which finished fourth. Second will play third.
Weather policyThere is a reserve day for every match at the World Cup.
Any incomplete matches will be continued the next day from where they left off, a new game will not be started.
Every effort will be made to complete the match on the scheduled day with any necessary reduction in overs taking place.
Only if the minimum number of overs (20 per side) cannot be bowled on the scheduled day will the match be completed on the reserve day.
