The T20 super 8 fixture doesnt give advantage to group champions, is it fair?

well this time Icc have arranged the tournament in such a way that all the fans of the strong team can take their ticket early. example: India is the group champions in our group and we remain as C2 even if India was second from the group. its good fro the fans to book the ticket early and to gain more profit for the ICC, but its missing the advantage given to the champion of the group. now India have to face strong teams like australia and westindies but it would not have been the same if it was scheduled in the past format of worldcup. so whats your view?

it is only seeming westindies is strong indian team is balanced enough to overcome the wetindies india surely has uppar hand in its group only facing australia as difficulty let see what goes on, but the format is not so fair india is the champion of the group it should be categorized as C1 and southafrica as C2 and same should be happen for all other groups

ya thats what i said. India is C1 and SA is C2,it should be like that only. in previous 50 over worldcup ICC faced a huge loss due to the early knock out if indian team from the tournament. there they have seen that the tickets were booked more for a match of Ireland, inda was supposed to beon that slot if india have qualified. So ICC is making use of that imagination of cricket fans, now what ever happens all the matches of C2 would have been booked so early.
