With two spots still up for grabs in the top four, there is a bit of permutation and combination for India to seal a berth for the semis in Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022.
India will face South Africa in their final league match of Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. Table-toppers Australia and second-placed South Africa are already into the semi finals. The last two spots in the top four are open for India, England and the West Indies.
England will play against Bangladesh in the first match on Sunday while India will take on South Africa in the final match of the league stage.
A win against South Africa will take India to 8 points in seven matches and put them above current third-placed West Indies who have seven points. If England, who also have 6 points from as many matches, also win their last match, then the third and fourth position between India and England will be determined by net run-rate.
If India’s last league match is washed out due to rain, then they will be tied at 7 points with West Indies but a better run rate will help them to leapfrog the Caribbeans. But if India lose, they have to depend on Bangladesh defeating England by a huge margin.
