Tale of the Tape - CWC prognosis.

Few upset results thus far, and a few more to come.  Or are there? There are 19 matches to play in pool play and most should go to favouritism.  However it is quite possible 5 matches could go to upsets,; Bangladesh v Scotland, India v West Indies, Pakistan v South Africa, Australia v Sri Lanka and England v Bangladesh, but in reality the winners should be the favourites.  So with that in mind how do the Pool Tables appear at the competition end:

Pool A

NZ 12
SL  10
Aus  7
Eng  6
Bang 5
Afgan 2
Scotland 0

Pool B (very interesting)

Ind 12
SA  10
Pak  6
Ireland 6 (on NRR and beating WI)
WI  6
Zim  2
UAE  0

If I understand the concept, Pool A 1st plays Pool B 4th, Pool A 2nd plays Pool B 3rd, Pool A 3rd plays Pool B 2nd and Pool A 4th plays Pool B 1st.  So that means some interesting match ups:

NZ v Ire
SL v Pak
Aus v SA
Eng v Ind
