England vs Pakistan

In the 44th match of the World Cup 2023, England and Pakistan face each other at the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata. Both the teams are playing for different objectives and England are eyeing a place in the Champions Trophy, while Pakistan are taking on the impossible task of reaching the semi-finals of the tournament. In this match, England almost ended Pakistan’s semi-final hopes by winning the toss and deciding to bat first. Now England needs to win at any cost to secure their place in the Champions Trophy. However, according to an equation, they can qualify for the semi-finals even if they lose this match. Let us know how.

How will England qualify even if they lose to Pakistan?

England is currently at 7th position in the World Cup points table with 4 points from 8 matches. They face tough competition from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Netherlands to make the top eight, which is one of the criteria for making the Champions Trophy. If 2019 world champions England lose their match against the Men in Green, they could drop a spot, but their chances are still alive.

England will have to avoid a big defeat

England will be hoping to win this match to remain in contention for Champions Trophy qualification. However, if they lose, they would not want to lose by a big margin. A big defeat will see their net run rate drop below other teams. After this they will try to oust Sri Lanka from the top eight.

On the other hand, if Bangladesh, who is playing against Australia in the first double-header, loses to Australia, then England can qualify for the 2025 Champions Trophy in Pakistan. Bangladesh, who also have 4 points, will remain there and will qualify on the basis of higher net runs. However, a Bangladesh win would put England in trouble if they lose themselves.
