Big threat on a team, will be out without playing the last league match! Pakistan will benefit

World Cup 2023, Semifinal: Team India was the first team to make it to the semi-finals of the 2023 World Cup. After this, South Africa and then Australia also entered the last-4. Now only Pakistan, New Zealand and Afghanistan are left in the race to grab a spot. The Kiwi team will play its last league match against Sri Lanka on 9 November. At one time it seemed that New Zealand would easily make it to the semi-finals. However, they have lost their last four matches.

New Zealand will take on Sri Lanka at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Thursday. Before this match, a big threat is looming over the Kiwi team. New Zealand lost its last match against Pakistan by 400 runs due to rain. Now once again rain can spoil the game of this team. The match is going on between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. Rainy season continues in Bengaluru. There is a 50 percent chance of rain in the entire match. There will be pain in his eyes even if there is a fight. In such a situation, this match may also get washed away due to rain, after which the Kiwi team will have to be satisfied with only 1 point.

Losing the semi-final ticket will not hurt Sri Lanka, but New Zealand could be out of the semi-finals without playing their last league match. The last teams in the semi-finals will be Pakistan, Afghanistan and New Zealand. Whoever has 10 points and a better net run rate than the other two will qualify for the semi-finals. But if New Zealand gets just one point against Sri Lanka, they will be out. That means Kiwi team will have to win this match in every situation.

If it rains again with New Zealand and the match is not completed then Pakistan will bat in such conditions. In such a situation, Afghanistan and Pakistan will have a chance to get tickets for the semi-finals. Pakistan will play its last match against England, which may be easy for Babar’s army to defeat. Afghanistan will face South Africa. If the New Zealand match gets washed out due to rain, Pakistan’s lead over Afghanistan will be huge.
