Did you calculate this with the official criterias (only last four years count)?

Duh. :p and 75 %, 50 %, 25 % weighting etc.

However, Botswana's and Africa's points (and China's and Asia's) are combined as Botswana essentially took Africa's place.

good to be at home but any reason why we cannot choose surface?

Thanks

Oh, sorry! You can. The lot just meant that because Sweden and China haven't met before, it was randomly drawn. It's a standard term from the rules and I didn't realise the potential confusion.

it is not about surface but about ground (meaning the country where you play ;))...

Great work, Sam! :yeah:

I always wondered, why was it Botswana who took Africa's place and not South Africa for instance?
