Cricket World Cup
1) arent the stadiums ENORMOUS?
2) how is it being decided? Are there nay knockouts or is it league style? i keep seeing teams plying that i thought were "out" by now.
3) when does it finish
There are 10 teams and each team plays the other 9 in a league format.
Then the top four after the league format play in two semi-finals. The top team (India) play the team 4th in the league (New Zealand). The team finishing second (South Africa) play the team finishing third (Australia)
Then the winners of these two semi-finals play each other in the Final!
Results and fixtures here
Even if teams cannot qualify for semifinals, they still have to play the league matches. For instance, India v Netherlands tomorrow. India are guaranteed top spot and Ned definitely can't qualify, so a dead rubber. I wonder if many Indian fans will turn out to watch.
