CWC: Pool Stages, Final Week Scenarios

CricketFilePhotoBPerth, Australia – In Pool B, Pakistan’s upset win over South Africa ensured the battle for the top four remained wide open.

Pool A

Remaining matches:

Sri Lanka v Scotland, Hobart, March 11

New Zealand v Bangladesh, Hamilton, March 13

England v Afghanistan, Sydney, March 13

Australia v Scotland, Hobart, March 14

Pool B

Remaining matches:

South Africa v United Arab Emirates, Wellington, March 12

India v Zimbabwe, Auckland, March 14

West Indies v United Arab Emirates, Napier, March 15

Pakistan v Ireland, Adelaide, March 15

West Indies’ last remaining match is against UAE and they can still make the play-offs. If Ireland loses their final game and the Windies beat UAE, the quarter finals beckon due to their superior NRR.

In a less likely scenario, the Windies could also make it on NRR if they beat UAE and Pakistan lose to Ireland, but big margins would be needed on either side for it to happen.
