Pak-India effect:
If either Pak or India or both were in the Super8, though we may not like it, teams in the Semis and #5 and #6 would not get an easy ride. (though, we and Ireland deserved to qualify and they deserved to leave, with their 1st round performance). The final standing would look a bit different and the true performance of teams like WI and England might have attracted more focus.
