"17th June 1999 Australia v South Africa, Birmingham, tied (Australia go through due to victory in game 39)* "
I think you'll find Australia progressed because they finished higher on the Super Six table.
- I remembered it as Australia went thru because they beat SA previously, so I believe the article is correct. Nb I was not the orignal author Steven jones 00:01, 15 Jun 2004 (UTC)
- You're both correct. Australia finished ahead of South Africa on the Super Six table because Australia had beaten South Africa in Game 39. They were tied on points in the Super Six, but the tournament rules stated that such ties would be broken by head-to-head results, thus making game 39 the determinant. I'll amend the article to indicate this. --dmmaus 01:14, 15 Jun 2004 (UTC)
No. There was a three-way tie at the top of the S6 table. Pak, Aus, SA all on 3 wins. Pak d Aus, Aus d SA and SA d Pak; so head-to-head was redundant. The top three were split on net run rate.
- That was the method used to decide the match-ups for the semi-finals. On run rate, Pakistan finished top of the Super Six table, Australia second, South Africa third, New Zealand fourth. According to the tournament playing conditions, the top team played the fourth (Pak v NZ) and the second played the third (Aus v SA) in the semi-finals. The winners of the semi-finals progressed to the final. When Aus and SA tied their semi-final, splitting them no longer involved Pakistan, and so the head-to-head result was the determinant. If South Africa had had a higher run rate that Australia, Australia still would have progressed from the semi into the final. From the official tournament web site:  --dmmaus 07:58, 17 Jun 2004 (UTC)
- Actually, my mistake, you're right. The relevant section of the tournament playing conditions reads: "If a Semi-final is tied or there is no result, the team that finished higher at the end of the Super Six stage as decided by clause 11.3 shall proceed to the Final." So yes, Australia progressed to the final because they had a better run rate than South Africa, placing them above SA in the Super Six table. I'll amend the article. --dmmaus 08:05, 17 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Player of the Series
No 'Man of the Series' was awarded in1975, 1979, 1983 and 1987. The first was awarded in 1993. The award was changed to 'Player of the Tournament' in 1999 and then to 'Player of the Series' in 2003 - Ctbolt 03:29, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
I think in World Cup-1999, "man of the series" award was given to Shane Warne while "player of the tournament" to Lance Kluesner. 1999 in fact was the only year in which two such titles were awarded simultaneously. Discussions invited.
Own page required for 2nd semi final
since there are still some people who consider that semi final to be the best of all time. I would suggest that its own seperate page is made for that match. The 438 game has its own page.Scubasteve55 (talk) 20:23, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
