T20 WC 2022: Australia out of the race for the semi-finals! Upset is expected from Sri Lanka, the game is played with the defending champion

Adelaide: Defending champions Australia are almost on the verge of being eliminated from the race for the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. In their last Super-12 match, Australia beat Afghanistan by 4 runs to get two crucial points but these points are not enough to take them to the semi-finals. In fact, the screw in Group-1 is now stuck on the run rate. New Zealand’s team has reached the semi-finals from this group. On the other hand, England is yet to play their last match against Sri Lanka. In such a situation, who will reach the semi-finals between Australia and England, it now depends on the Sri Lankan team. The victory and defeat of Sri Lanka will now decide the fate of England and Australia.

England ahead of Australia in run rate

In the Super-12, the Australian team won three out of five matches. And one match was washed away due to rain. In this way he has seven points but in terms of run rate, he is behind England. Australia’s run rate in five matches is -0.173. On the other hand, the England team is yet to play its last match against Sri Lanka and has 5 points from four matches but its run rate is +0.547. In such a situation, if the England team beats Sri Lanka even by a small margin, then its run rate will be better than Australia. In this way, he will enter the semi-finals, beating Australia.

Australia hopes from Sri Lanka

Australia is now completely dependent on Sri Lanka for the semi-finals. It is a do or die match for England against Sri Lanka. In this match, if the England team loses to Sri Lanka in any way, then there will be an opportunity for Australia. Because in terms of run rate, she can no longer beat England. In such a situation, if the England team loses, then it will be left with only 5 points, due to which Australia will reach the semi-finals.

Afghanistan spoiled the game

The biggest blow to Australia was given by the Afghanistan team. Afghanistan gave a tough fight to Australia in the last match of the league. Australia somehow won the match, due to which their run rate further declined. Australia had scored 168 runs in this match. While defending his target, he had to stop Afghanistan within 106 runs so that he could be better in the run rate than England but due to Rashid Khan’s explosive batting, this could not happen and Afghanistan made 164 for 7 wickets.
