By Author CPL

The Cricket World Cup group stage is over, and eight teams have reached the quarter-finals of the sport's showpiece event.

Here's how they'll line up over the course of the next few days:

Wed 18 March: South Africa v Sri Lanka (Sydney)
Thu 19 March: India v Bangladesh (Melbourne)
Fri 20 March: Australia v Pakistan (Adelaide)
Sat 21 March: New Zealand v West Indies (Wellington)

Here's how the Caribbean Premier League stars fared over the past few days Down Under...

BARBADOS TRIDENTS

West Indies captain Jason Holder brilliantly bowled his team into the last eight as they thrashed UAE in their final group stage game, Holder taking 4-27 from his 10 overs in a fearsome spell of fast bowling that reduced the opposition to 46-6 at one stage. Jonathan Carter saw the Windies home comfortably in their run chase, hitting an unbeaten 50 from 58 balls. Dwayne Smith failed with the bat again, scoring 15 from 9 balls.

GUYANA AMAZON WARRIORS

Sri Lanka didn't play this week, so there was a deserved rest for Lasith Malinga, Tillakaratne Dilshan and Thisara Perera. Denesh Ramdin helped Windies home against UAE with an unbeaten 33 from 50 balls, while Lendl Simmons was not required to bat.

JAMAICA TALLAWAHS

Jerome Taylor kept his impressive World Cup going with a fine spell of 3-36 from 8.4 overs as the Windies ripped into UAE in Napier - he's now the joint-5th top wicket-taker in the tournament with 14 overall. Andre Russell impressed with the ball too, taking 2-20 from 8 overs before scoring 7 not out in their reply. Daniel Vettori will be meeting his Tallawahs team-mates in the quarters and he warmed up with 1-42 from 10 overs as the Kiwis made it 6 wins out of 6 against Bangladesh. Sri Lanka's Mahela Jayawardene had a restful week, while Chris Gayle sat out the Windies win over UAE.

ST KITTS & NEVIS PATRIOTS

Martin Guptill arrived at the World Cup party in style, smashing a brilliant 100-ball 105 in New Zealand's fine win over Bangladesh to set him up nicely for Saturday's showdown with the West Indies. Marlon Samuels took 1-25 from 10 overs for the Windies against UAE but was out for 9, while Sheldon Cottrell didn't play. Shahid Afridi, meanwhile, took 0-38 from 10 overs as Pakistan saw off Ireland to set up a mouth-watering last eight clash with Australia in Adelaide.

ST LUCIA ZOUKS

Two Zouks' stars struck fine half-centuries as they got their World Cup campaigns off and running: Johnson Charles batted beautifully for the West Indies against UAE, hammering 55 from 40 balls; Ross Taylor made 56 from 97 balls as New Zealand saw off the challenge of Bangladesh. Darren Sammy only bowled one over and didn't bat for the Windies, while Kemar Roach's 8 overs went for 54. Shakib Al Hasan, meanwhile, struck 23 from 18 balls and bowled wonderfully against the Kiwis for Bangladesh, taking 4-55 from 8.5 overs.
