given the fact that 4 teams are starting with 2 points, and each team plays 6 games, I would say 8 points would be needed to make the semis (and even that would probably cause a tie with the 5th placed team and head-to-head record may come into play as well as NRR in the event of a 3 way tie).

Realistically we should be able to beat Ireland and have a very good chance against England. New Zeland and West Indies are the teams we will have to target in order to qualify for the semis. The batting power of the Aussies and SA will make it very very tough to contend with these sides in the smaller stadiums of the caribbean.
