The most straightforward path for Pakistan at this point would be to see Australia losing three of their four remaining games, although this seems unlikely given that two of the games are against weaker opponents like Afghanistan and Bangladesh. Pakistan would benefit from more upsets in the tournament.

Additionally, Pakistan would prefer New Zealand to win three of their remaining matches while losing one against Pakistan. If Australia avoids an upset against Bangladesh or Afghanistan but loses to New Zealand, then Net Run Rate (NRR) could come into play.

For Pakistan to qualify, the following results could be helpful:

– If all the results align with the above-stated “wish,” then India will finish with 18 points, New Zealand with 14, South Africa with 12, and Pakistan with 10 points, placing them ahead of Australia and Sri Lanka, each with 8 points. If Australia wins against Bangladesh in match 43, which is highly likely, then Pakistan and Australia will tie with 10 points each.

The specific scenarios for Pakistan’s qualification will become clearer by the next mid-week, and the outlook for Pakistan will keep evolving based on the results in the upcoming games.
