Pakistan may not reach semifinals even if winning all the matches, here is how?
ISLAMABAD - Even if Pakistan wins the remainder of matches and ends up on 11 points, even then there’s no guarantee of a semi-finals berth. There are two scenarios for that case as well:
- If England wins their two matches, New Zealand wins one of their matches and India wins two, the three will cement their places in top 4.
- The other case would be that if Sri Lanka wins all of their matches and India and New Zealand win two and one matches respectively, the three teams will end up in top 4.
So, first things first, Pakistan needs to win the remaining two matches before we jump to any conclusions. Until then, the tournament promises plenty of excitement.
These scenarios do not take into account washed out matches. The scenarios would change significantly in case of rain in any of these key games.
