not only going to the second round will help. if we go to second round and still finish 8th we get 1st(champion) and 9th (the team we knocked out to get in second round) in the next WC.
1st we have to ensure we go to second round. then also we have to ensure we dont finish 8. we somehow by winning or NRR have to become 7th.....
anyway there is another chance of getting 7th. we qualify for 2nd round. and two other test teams dont qualify. now whatever we do in 2nd round we will finish as seeded 7th as the two teams not qualifying for 2nd round in 8th and ninth
