    Five, yes of course. Would that involve players from all 5 teams taking shots, with teams who miss dropping out, then if 2 or more teams miss you start again among them until 4 have got through?

          Wales v China B underway now, with Mark Williams losing the first singles frame. The match between England and Northern Ireland follows it.

            Wales roar back to win 4-1 and take the group. Lisowski v Mark Allen about to start off the Northern Ireland - England game, with NI needing to win all five frames.

              Allen takes it with a 113 break. Now Kyren Wilson takes on Jordan Brown. World #5 looking to seal England's path to the QFs against the player ranked 94.

                Wilson has sewn up the frame so that's England onto 15 frames and secures their progress.

                There was for the first time a women's world cup as well - report here:
                https://snookerhq.com/2019/06/19/tha...ker-world-cup/
                It was played in the week before the world championship.

                  England through as group winners after overcoming NI 3-2. Apart from the matches to determine whether it's Hong Kong, Iran or a blue ball shootout including Ireland for the runner up spot, here is the bracket.

                  ------------------
                  China A
                  HK/Iran/RoI
                  ------------------
                  Wales
                  Scotland
                  ​​​​​​​------------------

                  ​​​​​​​------------------
                  England
                  Thailand
                  ​​​​​​​------------------
                  Belgium
                  China B
                  ​​​​​​​------------------

                  Quarter finals tomorrow, semi finals and final on Sunday. As mentioned, these are best of 7 and stop as soon as a team gets four wins. Frame 6, if needed, is another doubles frame, with frame 7 (if needed) being a deciding singles frame where the captain chooses who will play it.

                    Hong Kong edged out Iran 3-2 to get through.

                    Scotland-Wales went to a decider and Maguire beat day to book Scotland's place in the semi finals. China B are also through after Liang and Zhou defeated the Belgian pair.

                      England needed a deciding frame to get past Thailand, and Wilson won frame two after getting a snooker and clearance when needed.

                      No such drama for China A, winning 4-0 against HK.

                      So that leaves us with this:

                      China A v Scotland
                      England v China B

                        Scotland comfortably through, 4-1 winners against China A but England are two frames down against China B.

                          China B beats England in a decider.
