T20 World Cup 2009 Super Eights

The teams for the super Eights have been nominated and the matches of super-eights will be starting form the June 11. Two teams from each group that makes eight teams have qualified for the super-eight matches. The eight teams are further divided in two groups i.e., Group E and F. Here is the list of team qualified for the super eight or 2nd round of ICC World Twenty20 2009:
C1-West Indies
C2-Sri Lanka
D2-South Africa
D1-New Zealand

Talking about the selected teams, some suprises could be seen. First surprise is the missing Australia in the both groups. In the 1st round Australia was along Sri Lanka and West Indies. Australia had to loose both its matches and was out of the tournament. Another part is Bangladesh, who was also defeated in its both match against India and Ireland. This is the Ireland's second chance in Super Eights. Ireland was in super Eights of ICC World Cup 2007 in WI. Netherlands, who had impressive victory against England was knock-out by Pakistan. All three teams in Group B had same points but the Net Run Rate made Dutch out of series. South Africa topped group D along with New Zealand in second spot. Scotland lost its both match and was ruled out before the Super 8s.
