Grouping was done by ranking - 1,4,5 of qualifier went to weaker Zimbabwe and 2,3,6 went to stronger Bangladesh. This is how it was done last time too.

Matches will be played in Dharmasala and it's in high altitude. Dew will be a factor in evening matches as it always is in that venue. Bangladesh plays Ireland and Oman in D/N match but their opponent Netherlands will be up in a Day match. The ground is small and 200+ scores are sometimes not defendable (as seen in latest SA series). The pitch is a dream of batsman kind.

In Nagpur, it's more of a subcontinent version (as seen in SA Test series). So, Afghans should prevail barring some upsets. Given that Afghans got a home venue in Delhi and will get an opportunity to play Indian state teams upfront, they should be in a good place to compete.
