If 2019 world champions England lose the match against the Men in Green, they may drop out of a place, but their chances will still be alive.

England need to avoid a big defeat

On the other hand, if Bangladesh, who is playing against Australia in the first double-header, loses to Australia, then England can qualify for the 2025 Champions Trophy in Pakistan. Bangladesh, who also have 4 points, will remain there and will qualify on the basis of higher net runs. However, a Bangladesh win will put England in trouble if they lose themselves.
