stage of the 2007 Cricket World Cup
was scheduled between 27 March 2007 and 21 April 2007, and determined the four qualifiers for the semi-finals

competition. Two points were awarded for a win and one for a tie or a no result. If teams were tied on points, the team with the most wins was ranked ahead, and if this is also equal net run rate
determined the ranking order.
