After dropping their last four games, New Zealand’s chances of making the semi-finals currently seem bleak.With eight points, they remain fourth in the standings, although their NRR has decreased to 0.398 following their loss to Pakistan in their most recent game.
If New Zealand wins their next game in Bangalore against Sri Lanka, they still have a chance to advance. Then, they will need to pray that their opponents, Afghanistan and Pakistan, who both have eight points, don’t defeat them by a significant enough margin in their last league games to pass them on NRR.
But the prospect of rain remains, and it’s possible that New Zealand’s last match may be rained out. In such case, they would only have nine points and would need to hope that Pakistan and Afghanistan lose their next games in order to remain on eight.
