T20 World Cup: After the conclusion of 21 games in ICC T20 World Cup 2024, the qualification spots of the Super 8 are still up for grabs as the 20 participating teams haven’t managed to secure the guaranteed qualification spots yet. Oman is the only team so far who have been effectively eliminated from the tournament since they have faced defeats in their first three matches.

All the participating Teams are divided into four groups of five teams each and the teams which manage to finish in the top two of each group will advance to the super 8 phase of this year’s mega event.

A lot of deciding group stage matches are still pending and ahead of these important games, let’s take a look at each team’s qualification scenario for the Super 8 phase of ICC T20 World Cup 2024:

Afghanistan (Group C, Four points in Two games with a Net Run Rate of + 5.225)

Afghanistan are a part of Group C and under the leadership of Rashid Khan, they have performed well in the group stage, winning their first two games against Uganda and New Zealand by comfortable margins. The Afghans just need one more win in their remaining encounters against Papua New Guinea and co – hosts West Indies in order to guarantee their spot in the Super 8.

Australia (Group B, Four points in Two matches with a Net Run Rate of +1.875)

2021 T20 World Cup winners Australia are drawn in Group B alongside the likes of England, Oman, Scotland and Namibia. All Rounder Mitchell Marsh is leading the Aussies in this world cup and under his captaincy, the Kangaroos have triumphed over the likes of Oman and Ashes Rivals England in their first two matches. They are scheduled to play Namibia on 12th June and Scotland on 16th June respectively and a win against either of these two teams will help the Mitchell Marsh-led team to qualify for the Super 8.

Bangladesh (Group D, Two points in two games with a Net Run Rate of +0.075)

Bangladesh suffered a heartbreaking defeat against South Africa in yesterday’s match as they lost the match by a small margin of just four runs. Despite this, the Najmul Hossain Shanto – led team are sitting at the second position of Group D above the likes of Netherlands, Nepal and Sri Lanka. The Tigers are scheduled to play against the Netherlands and Nepal in their remaining encounters and wins in both of these matches will help them qualify for the Super 8.

Canada (Group A, Two points in two games with a Net Run Rate of -0.274)

Canada lost their opening match against co – hosts USA but a win against Ireland has kept them in the hunt for the top two qualification spots of Super 8. They are scheduled to take on Pakistan and India in their remaining encounters. If they Win against both of these heavyweights and if USA don’t win against India or Ireland, then that will allow Canada to finish in the Top two of Group A and qualify for the Super 8 round.

England (Group B, one point in two matches with a Net Run Rate of -1.800)

Reigning champions England haven’t had an ideal start to their T20 World Cup campaign as they lost against Australia in their previous match while their opening encounter against Scotland got washed out due to rain. They have to win the remaining matches against Namibia and Oman by any means and hope that Australia defeats Scotland by a huge margin if they want to advance to the Super 8.

India (Group A, four points in two matches with a Net Run Rate of +1.455)

2007 winners India have had a strong start to the 2024 T20 World Cup as they registered comfortable wins against Ireland and arch rivals Pakistan in their first two matches. A win in their remaining encounters against co – hosts USA or Canada will help them secure qualification for the Super 8.

Ireland (Group A, zero points in two games with a Net Run Rate of -1.712)

Ireland’s hopes of finishing in the top two are looking pretty slim as they need to secure huge margin victories against co – hosts USA and Pakistan and hope that the Americans lose by a big margin against India.

Namibia (Group B, two points in two matches with a Net Run Rate of -0.309)

Namibia are sitting at the third position in Group B having won against Oman and lost to Scotland respectively. Their remaining matches are against Australia and England and the Gerhard Erasmus – led team will have to register crucial wins against both the Cricketing giants if they want to have any hopes of qualifying for the next round.

New Zealand (Group C, zero points in one match with a Net Run Rate of -4.200)

Kane Williamson – led New Zealand suffered a humiliating defeat against Rashid Khan’s Afghanistan in their opening encounter and that’s the only match which they have played so far. They would like to move on from that match and win all of their remaining encounters against Uganda, co – hosts West Indies and Papua New Guinea in order to finish in the top two. The match against the Windies will be a do – or – die one for both sides.

Netherlands (Group D, two points in two matches with a Net Run Rate of +0.024)

The Netherlands started their T20 World Cup campaign with a win against Nepal and gave South Africa a run for their money in the next match but eventually the Dutch fell short against them. With just one victory in two encounters, the European side need to win against Nepal and Bangladesh if they want to advance to the next round.

Nepal (Group D, zero points in one match with a Net Run Rate of -0.539)
Nepal squad: Rohit Paudel (c), Aasif Sheikh, Bhim Sharki, Kushal Malla, Kushal Bhurtel, Kishore Mahato, Dipendra Singh Airee, Gulshan Jha, Aarif Sheikh, Karan KC, Sandeep Lamichhane, Lalit Rajbanshi, Sompal Kami, Mousom Dhakal, Sundeep Jora, Pratish GC, Arjun Saud

Nepal didn’t have a good start as they lost their opening match against the Netherlands by six wickets. They are scheduled to play against Sri Lanka on 12th June, South Africa on 15th June and Bangladesh on 17th June respectively. Victories in all three of these games will guarantee Nepal a spot in the Super 8 phase of the tournament.

Oman (Group B, zero points in three matches with a Net Run Rate of -1.613)

Oman is the first team to get eliminated from ICC T20 World Cup 2024 having lost their first three games against Namibia, Australia and Scotland. The middle eastern team are scheduled to play their final group stage match against defending champions England on 14th June but even if they win in that game, they won’t be able to finish in the top two.

Papua New Guinea (Group C, zero points in two matches with a Net Run Rate of -0.434)

Papua New Guinea lost their first two games against co – hosts West Indies and Uganda. Their remaining games against Afghanistan and New Zealand are going to be tough therefore they are unlikely to qualify for the Super 8.

Pakistan (Group A, zero points in two games with a Net Run Rate of -0.150)

Pakistan have performed really poorly in the group stage as they lost against USA and fierce rivals India in their first two matches. They play against Canada on 11th June and  Ireland on 16th June and both of these matches are going to be do – or – die ones for the Babar Azam-led team. If they win against both these teams, then they would want the United States of America to lose both of their remaining encounters so that the Shaheens can qualify for the Super 8 phase.

Sri Lanka (Group D, zero points in two games with a Net Run Rate of -0.777)

Sri Lanka have performed extremely poorly in the group stage so far as they lost against South Africa and arch rivals Bangladesh in their first two games. They will have to defeat the Netherlands and Nepal by big margins in their remaining matches and hope that the Dutch defeat Bangladesh so that the 2014 winners can qualify for the Super 8.

South Africa (Group D, six points in three games with a Net Run Rate of +0.603)

With six points in three games, the Proteas have effectively qualified for the Super eight round but they would want to end the group stage on a winning note by defeating Nepal in their final group stage match.

Scotland (Group B, five points in three games with a Net Run Rate of +2.164)

Scotland are having a dream run in the ongoing T20 World Cup as they are sitting comfortably at the top of Group B with five points and they are considered as the favorites to qualify for the Super 8 alongside Australia. But, they will have to win in the upcoming encounter against the Aussies if they want to confirm their qualification for the next round.

United States of America (Group A, four points in two matches with a Net Run Rate of +0.626)

Co – Hosts United States of America have had a good start to their T20 World Cup Campaign, defeating the likes of Canada and Pakistan in their first two matches of the tournament. They are currently placed second in Group A and they just need to win one game against India or Ireland in order to secure qualification for the next round.

Uganda (Group C, two points in three encounters with a Net Run Rate of -4.217)

Uganda’s chances of qualifying for the next round are looking pretty slim as they will have to win by a big margin against New Zealand in their final group stage match. If they win, they will have four points next to their name but those four points might just prove to be insufficient in helping them qualify for the Super 8.

West Indies (Group C, four points in two games with a Net Run Rate of +3.574)
