T20 World Cup: England has reached the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup group-1 after winning 4 of their matches. Who will be the second team from this group?. The answer to this largely depends on the outcome of the 2 matches that will be held today. In the two matches today, there is one team in each match that needs to win to stay in the semi-finals. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see both the matches. The first match between Australia and Bangladesh will be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. West Indies-Sri Lanka will face each other in the second match. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have already been eliminated from the World Cup.
Australia vs Bangladesh: What will happen if Australia loses?
Australia is third in the points table after winning 2 of their 3 matches. Their main rival in the race for the semi-finals is South Africa. South Africa has won 3 of their 4 matches and is second in the points table. Their net run rate is also better than Australia’s.
Australia needs to win both their remaining matches to reach the semi-finals. Losing a single match means they will have to depend on the outcome of the South Africa-England match. If Africa loses to England, the semifinalist will be decided on the basis of net run rate.
If Australia gets defeated in this match and then loses to the West Indies, they will be eliminated from the World Cup.
Australia vs Bangladesh: What if Australia wins?
If Australia registers a win, they will not have to rely on any team. They can win the next match against the West Indies to chart their way to the semi-finals. However, if South Africa beats England in their next match, the semi-final team will be selected on the basis of net runs.
West Indies vs Sri Lanka: What will happen if West Indies lose?
If the West Indies lose to Sri Lanka, they will be clearly out of the World Cup.
West Indies vs Sri Lanka: What will happen if West Indies win?
West Indies can keep their hopes alive by registering a win against Sri Lanka but will also have to win their last match against Australia. Not only that, they will have to win both the matches by a good margin so that their net run rate is better than South Africa. At the same time, they can hope that the England team beats South Africa.
