How it works...

How does the point system work?

If you have questions about the format or playing conditions of the World Cup, here follows a small explanation of some of those issues:

Competition Format

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 will be contested by 16 teams which have been 'seeded' and divided into four groups.

The first round of the competition will be the Group Stage (GS).

Each team will play every other team in its group. Points will be allocated for each match in accordance with the system described furtheron, and this system will apply thoughout the competition.

Following the GS, the two top teams in each group will progress to the next phase, the Super 8 series (S8). Each team will play every other team that has qualified for the S8, except for the team coming from the same GS. The result of this match in the GS and any points gained will be carried forward to the S8 series. No other points will be carried forward.

The top four teams from the S8 series will progress to the semifinals (SF), when the team placed 2nd will play the 3rd team (1st semifinal), and the team placed 1st will play the 4th team (2nd semifinal).

Point System

Win = 2 points
Tie/No Result = 1 point
Loss = 0 points

In the event of teams finishing on equal points in the GS in its group, the right to play in the S8 series will be decided in the following order of priority:
* The team with the most wins in the Group will be placed in the higher position.
* If still equal, the team with the higher net run rate in the Group will be placed in the higher position (see below for calculation)
* If still equal, then the team with the higher number of wickets taken per balls bowled in the Group matches in which results were achieved, will be placed in the higher position.
* If still equal, the team which was the winner in the head-to-head match played between them, will be placed in the higher position.
* If still equal, lots will be drawn.

In the event of teams finishing on equal points in the S8 stage, the right to play in the SF will be decided in the same order of priority as above.

If a SF is tied, the teams shall compete in a bowl-out to determine the finalist.
If a SF has no result, the team with the higher net run rate in the S8 stage shall progress to the final. If the teams are still equal, lots will be drawn.

If the final is tied, the teams shall have a bowl-out to determine the winner.
If the final has no result, the teams will be joint winners.

Net Run Rate (NRR)

A team's NRR is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over (RpO) scored by that team throughout the competition, the average RpO scored against that team.

Should a team be out in less than its full quota of overs, the calculation of its NRR will be based on the full quota of overs to which it was entitled, and not the number of overs in which the team was dismissed.

Only matches in which a result was achieved will be taken into consideration when NRRs are calculated.
