Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Ireland
With these teams in Group F of the ICC World Twenty20, it looks a lot more weaker than Group E.
But then, all relatively weaker sides will give each other tough competition, will they not?
Here's a look at the 4 teams.
Pakistan, started as my favorites and entered through the back door.
Their batting has hardly look settled with 3 different opening pairs used in 4 matches. Younis Khan and Misbah have looked to guide their ship but have come too low down the order to do any damage.
But with the news of Abdul Razzaq's inclusion comes the ray of hope.
Its uncertain as to when Razzaq will join the team, but if he's available for all Super 8 games, then his recent exploits in the RBS 20-20 Cup and those of the past for Hyderabad Heroes in the ICL, provide Pakistan with a chance to bolster their top order.
Overall though, the batting remains a worry.
Sohail Tanvir looked good with the new ball; Aamer has been sharp picking up first over wickets in both games; Gul's yorkers have continued to do damage; Afridi and Ajmal found destructive from against the Dutch.
The bowling looks in good shape; the Kiwis and the Irish (fingers crossed) will find it difficult to cope with the pace and spin.
Sri Lanka will be harder to get past, however.
Q's Call: Played 3, Won 2, Lost 1
Sri Lanka, unexpectedly rocked the group stages and now look favorites.
With Dilshan, Jayasuriya, Sangakkara, and Jayawardene their batting looks top heavy but 3 of them have fired explosively in 2 games; while Mubarak came good at the end against the Aussies.
However, their middle order and the longish tail is a concern and untested.
Their bowling has relied on the triple threat from the M factor with both the Aussies and the Windies unable to confidently play Murali, Mendis, and Malinga. Even though Malinga has gone for some runs his slower ones and yorkers have picked wickets regularly.
They look like the strongest team in this group and look set to win all their games.

New Zealand, the injured eternal semi finalists
They have been severely depleted by injuries to Ross Taylor and Jesse Ryder, leaving the batting to rely solely on McCullum with support from the inexperienced duo of Martin Guptill and Neil Broom.
Oram and Styris have flattered to get going, while Franklyn has also been missing through injury.
Furthermore, their bowling, with the exception of Ian Butler who has been exceptional, has looked one dimensional with the absence of Daniel Vettori, who is also out due to injury.
4 key men injured - what have they been up to in London?
The eternal semi finalists don't look like winning much during the Super 8s.

Ireland, the ones with the ability to upset
Their batting seems to rely on the O'Brien brothers, both aggressive stroke players, while they're bowling depends on Boyd Rankin and Trent Johnston.
These names were instrumental in dumping Pakistan out of the ODI World Cup in 2007; many Pakistanis still have nightmares about that day.
While Intikhab Alam will be one nervous man leading up to Monday.
However, this time I don't think Pakistan will repeat the mistakes of 2007.
They may be tough competition for a depleted New Zealand side, but McCullum's luck as captain can't be that bad.
While Sri Lanka's Triple M Threat will devour them.
Q's Call: Played 3, Won 0, Lost 3
Before the tournament, my call for the semi finalists from this Group was Pakistan and New Zealand; with the way Sri Lanka has played so far, I am compelled to change that.
So Sri Lanka and Pakistan go through from here to take on West Indies and India respectively.
Just for the record, my calls usually turn out the other way round.
NOTE: My Calls stand at 8-4, Wrong to Right so far.
