After both these matches, it will be decided to a great extent who will be the strong contender to qualify for the semi-finals from Group-1. In this group, three teams New Zealand, Australia and England are equal to 5-5 points. If New Zealand wins today, they will qualify because of their excellent net run rate.
New Zealand, Australia must win
While Australia also wins their match, it will have to depend on the England and Sri Lanka match to be held tomorrow (November 5). If England also wins the match, then the net run rate will be seen. On the basis of that, the second team from Group-1 will be able to reach the semi-finals. That is, it is clear that now all three of New Zealand, Australia and England will have to win their last match.
What is the position of Sri Lanka in Group 1?
There is also a Sri Lankan team in this group, whose last match is to be played against England tomorrow. Sri Lanka team has 4 points now. This team is completely dependent on the Australia-New Zealand match to reach the semi-finals. If either of these two teams lose their match and Sri Lanka beat England in their last match, their way to the semi-finals will be cleared.
