Brisbane: T20 World Cup (T20 World Cup 2022) Tough situation. In the same group, England, New Zealand and Australia are currently on 5 points. New Zealand has the highest net run rate. These points are at the top of the table. England and Australia are second and third. Sri Lanka is fourth in the group table with 4 points. TV9Bangla asked if it is possible for defending champions Australia to reach the semi-finals?
According to the statistics, based on the net run rate, the previous World Cup champion Australia is under some pressure at the moment. It is better to say that the difference between total run rate while batting and total run rate while bowling is called net run rate. It is possible for a team’s net run rate to drop even after winning a match. If England win by 1 run batting first, it is more damaging than winning by 1 run defending 200 runs. Australia’s progress to the semi-finals depends on several factors. New Zealand and England are yet to reach the semi-finals. Let’s take a look at that time equation…
First, if New Zealand beat Ireland, then hope is gone. If the match is tied and goes to Super Over, Irish’s run rate will be 1.675. On the other hand, to reach the semi-finals, England need to beat Sri Lanka by 100 runs or concede all runs in 10 overs or less. On the other hand, to qualify for the semi-finals, Afghanistan will have to beat Australia by 150 or be bowled out by 60 runs in 3 overs.
Unless something major happens, New Zealand is almost certain to beat Ireland and go into the semi-finals with 2 points. After that, the battle between Australia and England to go to the semi-finals will begin. A 61-run win or a 140-run chase to end the match in 13 overs will leave no stone unturned in England’s path to the semi-finals.
