T20 World Cup 2024: Semi-Finals Qualification Scenario for all Super 8 Group 2 teams


T20 World Cup 2024: The ICC T20 World Cup 2024 has reached its exciting Super 8 phase, and all the remaining eight teams divided in two groups of four teams each are fighting it our fiercely against each other to secure their qualification for the semi-finals of the tournament.

While the Super Right’s Group 1 has been dominated by India and Australia, Group 2 has seen the West Indies and South Africa dominate the proceedings. But, the qualification spots have not been sealed yet, and all four participating Group 2 teams are still alive in the race to qualifying for the semi-finals of the ongoing 2024 T20 World Cup.

South Africa defeated England by seven runs in a thrilling encounter yesterday at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in Saint Lucia, and they are sitting at the top of Group 2 with four points in two matches.

Co-hosts West Indies, on the other hand, won against fellow-hosts the United States of America by a comfortable margin of nine wickets on Sunday, June 22, and have occupied the second position in the table with two points in two games.

England’s defeat against the Proteas means they are ranked third in the overall standings and have the same number of points as the Windies, but their net run rate of +0.412 is less than the +1.814 of the Rovman Powell-led team.

The USA will play their final Super Eight encounter against the Jos Buttler-led team while the Windies will lock horns against the highly confident South Africa om 23rd June, Sunday to close-out the group two games of the Super Eight.

Ahead of the remaining Group two Super eight games, let’s take a look at each team’s qualification scenario for the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2024:

Semi-Finals Qualification Scenario for all super 8 group 2 teams:

1. South Africa (Four points in two-games)

South Africa under the leadership of Aiden Markram are currently sitting at the top of Super eight Group two. With two back to back wins in their last two encounters , the Proteas will be looking to secure a hat-trick of Super eight victories by defeating Rovman Powell’s West Indies in their final game to easily secure qualification for the semi-finals.

However, if things go South for the Aiden Markram-led team and the Windies defeat them, then they will have to hope England lose against the USA or don’t defeat them by a huge margin so that their Net Run Rate of +0.412 dosen’t go past South Africa’s Net Run Rate of +0.625.

2. West Indies (Two points in two games)

Co-hosts West Indies are ranked second in Group two of the Super eight. With just a single win in two encounters, the Rovman Powell-led team will have to defeat the Proteas at all costs in their upcoming Super eight fixture. If the Proteas get the better of the Carribbean team, then Rovman Powell and his men will have to rely on fellow co-hosts United States of America defeating 2022 champions England in order to secure their qualification for the Semi-finals of the tournament.

3. England (Two points in two games)

Jos Buttler-led England will have to defeat the United States of America with a huge-margin at all costs if they want to ensure their swift qualification to the semi-finals of the tournament. West Indies have a much better Net Run Rate of +1.814 in comparison to England’s +0.412. So the Three Lions would want the South Africans to win against the Windies in the other game so that the Net Run Rate dosen’t come into play.

4. United States of America (Zero points in two games)

Co-hosts United States of America are sitting at the bottom of Group two. They have failed to replicate their group stage form in the Super eight and are currently winless in two matches. Many feel they won’t be able to qualify for the Semis but they have a small chance to qualify if South Africa beats West Indies and the Aaron Jones-led team defeat 2022 champions England by a huge margin.
