Can England still qualify for semi finals after defeat against India? – Check Here

England team’s disappointing campaign in the 2023 ODI World Cup continues with four back-to-back losses in this tournament against teams like Afghanistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and India respectively. England has almost been knocked out of the ODI World Cup 2023 with five losses in six games so far, but here in this article, we will have a look at whether this English side still has a chance to qualify for the semi-finals (or) not.

England’s remaining schedule in ODI World Cup 2023:

vs Australia in Ahmedabad, 4th Nov

vs Netherlands in Pune, 8th Nov

vs Pakistan in Kolkata, 11th Nov

ODI World Cup 2023 Points Table:

India – 6 wins (6 games)

South Africa – 5 wins (6 games)

New Zealand – 4 wins (6 games)

Australia – 4 wins (6 games)

Sri Lanka – 2 wins (5 games)

Pakistan – 2 wins (6 games)

Afghanistan – 2 wins (5 games)

Netherlands – 2 wins (6 games)

Bangladesh – 1 win (6 games)

England – 1 win (6 games)

Note: Points Table updated till IND vs ENG (Match-29)

Now England can end with a maximum of 4 wins in this ODI World Cup 2023 if they go on to win their remaining three games in the tournament.

If England wins their remaining three games, then teams like Australia, Netherlands and Pakistan will lose one more game.

Now, if we look at top-4 sides already India and South Africa have more than 4 wins in the table while New Zealand and Australia have exactly 4 wins in the points table.

We assume New Zealand and Australia to lose all games so that they remain with only 4 wins in the points table.

– New Zealand will lose their remaining three games to South Africa, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka and stay at only 4 wins in the points table.

– Australia will lose their remaining three games to England, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh and stay at only 4 wins in the points table.

– Sri Lanka should lose three more games in their remaining schedule. Sri Lanka can lose their next three games to Afghanistan, India, and Bangladesh and they can defeat New Zealand alone to end with only three wins in the table.

– Pakistan should lose two more games in their remaining schedule. Pakistan can lose two of their remaining games to Bangladesh, and England and they can defeat New Zealand alone to end with only three wins in the table.

– Afghanistan should lose three more games in their remaining schedule. Afghanistan will beat Sri Lanka as per the above point, thus Afghanistan can lose their remaining games to sides like Netherlands, Australia, and South Africa to stay with only three wins in the table.

As per the above statement, it will be better if Australia loses all games hence Afghanistan will beat Australia and would have four wins in the table.

РThe Netherlands should lose two more games in their remaining schedule. As per the above statement, the Netherlands will beat Afghanistan thus they should lose two other games against teams like England and India. 

– Bangladesh should lose one more game in their remaining schedule. But as per the above statements Bangladesh will beat Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Australia hence they will also end up with four wins in the table.

If all these happen then India, South Africa, and two teams (Australia, New Zealand, England, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh) will qualify for the semi-finals based on NRR.

England should ensure that their NRR is better than other sides like Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Australia (or) New Zealand respectively.
