The race for the World Cup is getting more intense day by day.Both India and South Africa have secured their places in the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2023. Although Australia and New Zealand are currently ranked third and fourth, respectively, they are perhaps not qualified. In order to secure a place in the second round, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and the Netherlands have to face a variety of obstacles and situations.
Afghanistan, Pakistan, and New Zealand each have four wins and four losses. To qualify, they have to win their remaining matches and end with a higher net-run rate than their opponents. If New Zealand loses their last match, they are going to hope that Pakistan and Afghanistan lose each match that is left to play while maintaining a higher net run rate than them. With a pair of victories, it is possible for the Netherlands to win the next match.
If New Zealand is defeated by Siri Lanka, then Pakistan would go to the semi-finals, and if New Zealand wins, then Pakistan would have to beat England with good run-rate to qualify for semi-finals.
