Points Table, Most Run Scorers, and Most Wicket-Takers
In the 42nd match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, South Africa delivered a commanding victory over Afghanistan, shattering the Afghan team’s dreams of a semi-final berth. The Proteas now stand poised to clash with Australia in the upcoming second semi-final on November 16. Meanwhile, New Zealand’s impressive triumph over Sri Lanka on the previous day has significantly bolstered their chances of reaching the semi-finals, leaving Pakistan with a formidable challenge to secure their own spot in the semis.
Sri Lanka faced a significant setback, missing out on direct qualification for the Champions Trophy 2025. In contrast, England displayed a strong resurgence, defeating the Netherlands and securing their second win in the tournament, edging closer to a confirmed spot in the Champions Trophy 2025. However, their semi-final aspirations could be at risk if they falter against Pakistan this Saturday. The Men In Green, in turn, must achieve a resounding victory against England to keep their own semi-final hopes alive.
Sitting at the fifth spot in the standings with eight points earned from an equal number of matches, Pakistan faces an uphill battle. Their upcoming clash against England in Kolkata demands an impressive performance – a victory by a margin of 287 runs if they bat first or by achieving it with 284 balls to spare, equivalent to over 47 overs if they chase. The odds are stacked against Pakistan, making it likely that New Zealand will face India in the first semi-final at the Wankhede Stadium on November 15.
