*Kenya awarded four points after New Zealand refused to play in Nairobi

When all group matches have been completed, if two or more teams are level on points, the following set of criteria are used to determine which teams go through to the Super Six:

1. The team with the most wins in Group matches
2. Teams equal on both points and wins will be decided by the winner of the group game between them. If more than two teams have equal points and wins, the team winning the most number of matches played between those teams will be placed higher
3. If still equal, the team with the higher net run rate will go forward
4. If still equal, the team with the higher number of wickets taken per balls bowled in Group matches in which results were achieved, will go forward
5. In the unlikely event that none of the above criteria succeed in separating teams, lots would be drawn
