New Delhi (Agencies) - With 10 days to go in the league stage of the 2011 World Cup, teams are jostling for a place in the knock-out stage, especially in Group B where six of the seven teams are still in contention for a quarter-final spot. In contrast, Group A is a foregone conclusion with the top teams - New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia - all assured of a place in the last eight. What remains to be seen is who finishes where. And that will be important as it will determine who they play against in the quarter-final. New Zealand, with six points, should easily add two more to their kitty in their next game against Canada, while Pakistan, also on six points, should put it past Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka, on five points, will eye full marks against Zimbabwe, while Australia is expected to go the top of the group with two wins against Kenya and Canada. The only two matches of interest in this group that will determine the final group position is New Zealand vs Sri Lanka on March 18 and Pakistan vs Australia on March 19. Meanwhile, in Group B the laptops will be out working the permutations and combinations. India and England, on five points each, are just one win away from making it to the last eight, but South Africa and West Indies, both on four points, will have to win at least two more games to confirm their tickets to the next round. Ireland and Bangladesh - both on two points - could give their fans much to cheer, if they pull off a win in their next games. Ireland, who have proved to be no pushovers, take on the West Indies in their next game and if they do an encore of their England slaying, the Windies could be scurrying for cover. Bangladesh take on England in their next game at Chittagong on March 11 and with Kevin Pietersen and Stuart Broad both out of the World Cup plans, the co-hosts could cause an upset if they play to their potential. Both Ireland and Bangladesh are expected to put it past the Dutch, so the pressure will be mounting on the Windies and the Proteas, both of whom have three games left in the group stage. South Africa play India on March 12 and then take on Ireland on March 15, while their final game is against Bangladesh on March 19. The Windies take on Ireland on Thursday, and then play England on March 17 and India on March 20. And if everything goes as per plan, there will be four teams tied on six points at the end of the group stage. Group B could surely turn out to be the group of death.
