Ridiculous—most number of wins in case of same points

The current world cup rule selecting semi finals slot encase of two teams ending at same points is unfair. Let’s imagine England and Sri Lanka finish at same points, but Sri Lanka had two games washed out. England did not get a washed out game yet. So current rules will select England top of Sri Lanka as they have more wins.

My argument is that then why you give one point each to two teams in case of wash out. Those points won’t be valid when there is a same point scenario. This rule will be unfair to teams which had bad weather. If they have same points then the Net run rate should have been considered.

Hope ICC will not use this rule in future tournaments.
