Following the Group stage, how will I know which teams will advance to the Super 8 stage?

Upon completion of the Group stage, the top two teams from each of the four groups will move into the Super 8 stage of the tournament, where they will be placed into two groups of four teams.

Teams seeded first and second in their first round groups at the start of the event will retain that seeding in the Super 8 stage, provided they qualify.

If the first and second seeds do not progress, the team that does will take their place. For example, if Netherlands were to come top of group D and South Africa came second, South Africa would remain as D1 in the Super 8s and Netherlands would follow the schedule for D2 in the Super 8 stage.

How will I know which teams will advance to the Semi-Finals and Final?

Upon completion of the Super 8 stage, the top two teams from each of the two groups will progress to the Semi-Finals. We encourage fans to refer to the points table at t20worldcup.com for updates after each match has been concluded. The winner of each Semi-Final will play in the Final.
