India, South Africa, and Australia have already Qualified for the semis, and with just one slot left now, New Zealand, Pakistan, and Afghanistan are alive and are in a hustle for the berth. On paper, Pakistan and Afghanistan are still in the race but practically, they can not qualify for knockout games. Pakistan will either have to chase down any target under 2.3 overs or win by 273 runs against England. And for Afghanistan, they have to beat South Africa by 669 runs in order the overcome New Zealand.
Rachin Ravindra, the young sensation from New Zealand is having a dream-like World Cup as he became the player with the most runs leaving QDK, Virat, and likes behind. He has been consistently leading the team from the start providing the team an excellent opening and big runs.
It was New Zealand vs Sri Lanka the last night where New Zealand chased down the 172 runs target in just 24 overs. Pakistan would have been happier if Sri Lanka managed to defeat New Zealand. Winning the toss, New Zealand opted to bowl first as the match was in the eyes of the rain god.
New Zealand bowlers picked up wickets in regular intervals and never allowed Sri Lanka to settle and try to counterattack. Kusal Perera smacked a half-century and a good last-wicket partnership between Theekshana and Madhushanka led Sri Lanka to 171.
It was a cakewalk for them but they needed to keep overs in their mind so that there was no chance left for Pakistan and Afghanistan. A good opening partnership, good contribution from the middle order, and New Zealand safely breached the target in just 23.2 overs.
Not only did they win the match but also made it quite difficult for Pakistan and Afghanistan to even think of the qualification.
