When the group is being considered as a whole, it can be treated as a single entity: "the group was ready to go on stage." But when the individuality of its members is being emphasized, "group" is plural: "the group were in disagreement about where to go for dinner."

it depends on using actually. when a group is represented as a whole and individually then it is singular but when its shows variety and divisions it will be plural. as an example * The cricket team has made us proud. * The players of the cricket team are really praiseworthy....
