How can Afghanistan still qualify for semi final after losing to Australia?

Even after suffering a heart-breaking three-wicket defeat at the hands of Australia in the ongoing ODI World Cup, Afghanistan are still in the race to qualify for the semi-finals of the marquee tournament. To do so, the Hashmatullah Shahidi-led side will expect New Zealand and Pakistan to lose their matches at the hands of Sri Lanka and England respectively.
