Afghanistan will be knocked out of the World Cup if they beat Pakistan. Entering the top 4

Afghanistan Semi Final Scenario: Afghanistan has given a deep wound to three teams in the World Cup 2023, which these teams can never forget. Afghanistan caused three major upsets by defeating first England, then Pakistan and then Sri Lanka. The team will now face Netherlands in the 34th match of the tournament. If Afghanistan wins this match, it will be a big blow for Pakistan. The race to make it to the top-4 will be tough for the team. Let me explain the whole equation to you.

Afghanistan’s victory will be a blow to Pakistan.

The match between Afghanistan and Netherlands will be played at Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow. If Afghanistan wins this match then it will be difficult for Pakistan to reach the top-4. Afghanistan has 6 points from 6 matches while Pakistan has 6 points from 7 matches. In such a situation, with a win over Netherlands, the Afghan team will get 8 points and will reach above Pakistan. Pakistan will have to win both the remaining matches to remain in the race for the semi-finals, but if Afghanistan wins the remaining three matches, Pakistan will be out of the World Cup.

Afghanistan made it to the semi-finals

Afghanistan has a good chance of reaching the top-4. The team will reach 8 points with a win against Netherlands. If Afghanistan wins its remaining two matches, it will have 12 points. However, it will depend on the results of other teams. Afghanistan’s next match is not going to be easy. Netherlands will be followed by in-form teams like Australia and South Africa, who have made lethal comebacks in the tournament.

not an easy match

Whereas, if we talk about Netherlands team, it is not so easy to win against Afghanistan. Netherlands has defeated teams like South Africa in the current World Cup. In such a situation, the mistake of estimating Netherlands as a weak team in Afghanistan can be costly.

India qualified

India defeated Sri Lanka by 302 runs to enter the semi-finals. India has been the team to beat so far in this tournament. 7 teams of the tournament have not lost so far. The team now has league matches left against South Africa and Netherlands. India currently tops the table with 14 points.
