T20 World Cup 2022: Here’s How Australia Can Qualify For Semi-Finals?

AUS


England defeated New Zealand by 20 runs in the T20 World Cup 2022 match played in Brisbane on Tuesday. With this, England has implicated Australia's life. Now the race to qualify for the semi-finals in Group 1 has become very interesting. This is because Australia, England and New Zealand now have 5-5 points.

However, on the basis of net runrate, New Zealand's team is on top in the points table of Group 1 and England's team is at number two. The defending world champion Australia is present at number three. The net run rate of New Zealand's team is +2.233. The net run rate of England at number two is now +0.547. Australia's net run rate at number three is -0.304.

Interesting fight for the semi-finals

Top 2 teams from Group 1 and Group 2 will qualify for the semi-finals. Australia, England and New Zealand have 5 points each in Group 1. The condition of Australia is at its worst at the moment. To enter the semi-finals, Australia will have to win their last match against Afghanistan in Group 1 by a huge margin and better their net run rate than England. However, if Australia's last match is canceled due to rain, then it will be out of the T20 World Cup.

Here's the whole calculation:

England will have to win their last match against Sri Lanka in Group 1 by a huge margin if they want to make it to the semi-finals. England will have to keep in mind that its net run rate is higher than Australia. England will also have to pray that their last match is not canceled due to rain. New Zealand just need to win their last match against Ireland in Group 1 to make it to the semi-finals. Net run rate is not an issue for New Zealand.
