Now, England can end with a maximum of 5 wins in this ODI World Cup 2023 if they win their remaining four games in this tournament.

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

– The Netherlands already have four losses and if they go on to lose another game against England then they will have five losses in the table and end up below England.

 – Bangladesh should lose one more game in the remainder of the schedule where they will be playing against sides like Netherlands, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia.

Now it will be better if Bangladesh lose to the Netherlands as they would go below England and also if Bangladesh beats Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia then it will be very helpful for England as those three sides will lose one more game.

– Afghanistan should lose two more games in their remaining schedule where they will be playing against sides like Sri Lanka, Netherlands, Australia and South Africa.

Now it will be better if Afghanistan loses to the Netherlands and South Africa as the Netherlands remain below England and South Africa is very much above in the points table, while Afghanistan beating Sri Lanka and Australia will be very helpful for England as their contemporary side will lose one more game.

– Pakistan should lose two more games in their remaining schedule of ODI World Cup 2023. As per the above points, Pakistan would lose to England and Bangladesh, hence they will go below England in the points table.

– Sri Lanka should lose two more games in their remaining schedule of ODI World Cup 2023. As per the above points, Sri Lanka would lose to Bangladesh and Afghanistan, hence they will also go below England in the points table.

– Australia should lose three more games in their remaining schedule of ODI World Cup 2023. As per the above points, Australia would lose to England, Bangladesh and Afghanistan hence they will also go below England in the points table.

If all these results happen, then, the Netherlands, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia would go below England in the points table with only four wins in the table, hence England can qualify for the semi-finals of ODI WC 2023 with five wins.

Majorly, England would need help from both Bangladesh and Afghanistan to beat sides like Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia. Similarly, Bangladesh and Afghanistan  should lose to Netherlands as well.
