Default Ridiculous ICC - height of hypocrisy - Super 8 teams already decided !!!!!!

[edit]

The most ridiculous thing that ICC can do ! check this on the ICC world cup schedule. I hope Bangla cricket will strongly voice its comments to ICC body for publishing this kind of schedule on the official website.

favoring teams is one thing, publishing the super 8 team names with their schedule is another. I think this is a blatant dis-respect for the other 8 teams playing in the WC.

I dont buy this crap of disclaimer published in the page
"Team names for the Super Eight stage are indicative based on the top two teams from the Group Stage qualifying. If these two teams do qualify they will be seeded in position 1 or 2 as specified regardless of whether they finish first or second in their group. For example, if South Africa wins Group A and Australia comes second, for the purposes of the Super Eights, South Africa will still be A2 and Australia will be A1. If, for example, Scotland qualifies instead of Australia, Scotland will become A1"

plz check these links
