The group stages are over, now the eight remaining teams battle for the four places available for the semi-finals to be held on 24 and 25 April.
In the Super 8 round, every team plays six matches, against every other team except the side they played in the group stage.
ICC World Cup: Super Eights
The four group winners - Australia, Sri Lanka, New Zealand and West Indies - begin with two extra points, due to the victory they obtained over the second-placed side in the group.
It means South Africa, Bangladesh, England and Ireland have a harder job of finishing in the top four when the Super 8 round finishes.
Team with the most wins
Team with best net run-rate
Team with most wickets taken per balls bowled
Winner of the game between two level teams
Each team will be given two points for every win, with one for a tie or a no-result.
If more than one team ties on points for fourth-placed, the following tie-break rules apply:
The team with the most wins goes through, but net run-rate - including all matches played in the competition - is the next and most likely factor to split the sides.
In the unlikely event that there are identical net run rates, the team with the most wickets taken per balls bowled would win through.
The team that finishes first in the Super Eight stage will play the team which finished fourth. Second will play third.
There is a reserve day for every match at the World Cup.
Every effort will be made to complete the match on the scheduled day with any necessary reduction in overs taking place.
Only if the minimum number of overs (20 per side) cannot be bowled on the scheduled day will the match be completed on the reserve day.
Any incomplete matches will be continued the next day from where they left off - a new game will not be started.
