To Play in SBNS on 25th of March (A2 v B3)
1- We have to beat Saffers on Saturday and finish 3rd
2- We have to hope Srilanka dont end up as a runner-up in their group otherwise we are of to Colombo.
Please read the news below
South Africa are guaranteed to finish first or second in Group B if they beat Bangladesh on Saturday, but what is causing the delay in finalising the quarterfinal draw is a tournament rule that says India will play all their knockout matches in India, irrespective of their opponents. Sri Lanka will play in Sri Lanka unless they play India and Bangladesh will play in Bangladesh unless they are playing either Sri Lanka or India.
So that extends to the semi-finals too and, although the International Cricket Council has denied any knowledge of it, clandestine contingency plans appear to be being made for the final as well.
