THE TOP three sides from each group will, on Friday, commence the Super Six stage of the World Cup. Each team carries forward points gained against co-qualifiers for the early stages.

So, for example, Zimbabwe, who finished third in Group A, carry forward four points after beating both of the teams above them, South Africa and India. South Africa, despite finishing top of the group, carry only two points forward, thanks to their earlier victory over India.

After all the Super Six teams have player one another, the top four sides advance to the semi-finals. The first-placed team faces the fourth-placed side for a place in the final, with the other finalist decided by the winner of the match between the second and third-placed sides.
