How can Pakistan qualify for Super 8s for the T20 World Cup 2024

Pakistan’s T20 World Cup campaign received a lifeline after their convincing win over Canada on June 11th. Despite earlier losses to the USA and India, this victory keeps them in contention for the Super 8 stage.

The team’s journey began with a shocking upset. After a close encounter with the USA in Dallas, the match went into a Super Over, which the underdogs ultimately won. This defeat marked a major upset in T20 World Cup history.

Their second match against arch-rivals India proved equally challenging. Chasing a modest target of 120 runs, Pakistan fell short by a mere six runs. The Indian bowling attack, led by Jasprit Bumrah, successfully defended their total of 119.

However, hope flickered back for Pakistan in their third Group A match. Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Rizwan played starring roles in their dominant seven-wicket victory over Canada. Amir’s impressive bowling figures of 2/13 restricted Canada to a paltry 106 runs, while Rizwan anchored the chase with an unbeaten 53.

Pakistan’s fate now hinges on their upcoming encounter with Ireland on June 16th in Florida. This match is a must-win situation, but qualification still requires favorable outcomes elsewhere.

Both India and the USA currently lead the group with four points each from two games. Their upcoming head-to-head clash will determine who automatically progresses to the Super 8 round.

Here’s a breakdown of Pakistan’s qualification scenario:

  • Win against Ireland.
  • Hope for USA losses in their remaining games against India and Ireland.

Since Pakistan and USA have similar net run rates, a combination of these results could see the Men in Green advance. The margins required for Pakistan’s qualification are small.

For instance, if the USA loses their remaining matches by a combined 10 runs (assuming first-inning totals of 140), any margin of victory for Pakistan against Ireland would suffice, provided they score at least 112 batting first.

However, rain casts a shadow over Pakistan’s path. Florida, the venue for both their upcoming match against Ireland and the USA’s clash with Ireland, faces a risk of rain. A washout in either encounter would eliminate Pakistan from the tournament.
