India jumps to second spot in group

March 20, 2007 10:22 IST

India surged ahead to the second spot in Group 'B' after their record 257-run win over Bermuda in the cricket World Cup.

India now has a net run rate of +2.51 and are second in the table after two games.

Sri Lanka sits at the top with a net run rate of +4.86 from their only game against Bermuda.

Following its upset win over India, Bangladesh is placed third in the table with a net run rate of +0.14.

Bermuda, the fourth team in the group, have slumped to a net run rate of -5.00 after two heavy losses.

Both Bermuda and India have played two out of their three league matches. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, on the other hand, have played just one game each.

The group is still open with all the three teams on two points each after one win against their name.

For India to advance to the Super Eight stage, they will have to beat Sri Lanka in their last league match on Friday and hope for things to go their way.

Sri Lanka takes on Bangladesh tomorrow.

Bangladesh will play Bermuda in the last Group 'B' game on Sunday.
