India assured of semi-final berth after win vs Bangladesh?
Until the last round of games on Sunday, November 6, when Rohit Sharma's team plays the final match of the group against Zimbabwe at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), India will not formally qualify. Nobody can replace India in the top two if South Africa defeats Pakistan and Pakistan defeats Bangladesh.
How can Pakistan still qualify for semifinal?
The chances of a Babar Azam-led Pakistan moving into the semi-finals are fading fast, but they are still not mathematically out of the running. First, Pakistan must beat South Africa on Thursday. A loss in that match and Pakistan will be out of race for semi finals like Zimbabwe and the Netherlands.
If Pakistan do win against the Proteas then they will need another victory in their fifth and final match against Bangladesh, preferably by a huge margin to give them a strong final net run rate (NRR) just in case that becomes a deciding factor.
According to Zee News report, in those circumstances, they could finish above India should there be a shock Zimbabwe win in the final group match. Pakistan could also finish above South Africa if either the Dutch do them a favour with an upset in that game, or if rain prevents a result and Pakistan manage to overtake the Proteas on NRR.
