IND vs PAK Semi-Final World Cup 2023 Possibility: A clash between the two arch-rivals is a possibility in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023. The way the tournament is going, there is a good chance that India and Pakistan could meet in the semi-finals on November 15. In this article we will discuss about how Pakistan can qualify for the semi-finals and make the India vs Pakistan semi-final clash.
IND vs PAK Semi-Final World Cup 2023
India has won all eight of their matches in the World Cup 2023 and is in first place. South Africa is in second place, and Australia is in third place. New Zealand, Pakistan, and Afghanistan are all tied for fourth place.
India will play the fourth-place team in the first semi-final. If Pakistan finishes in fourth place, then India and Pakistan will play each other in the semi-finals.
If Australia wins one of their two remaining matches, they will be guaranteed a spot in the semi-finals of the World Cup 2023. This will leave one semi-final spot open, which will be contested by New Zealand, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
Australia’s current position in the points table is very strong, and they are one of the favorites to win the tournament. They have a well-balanced team with experienced players in all departments.
New Zealand, Pakistan, and Afghanistan are all evenly matched teams, and it will be difficult to predict who will qualify for the semi-finals. New Zealand has a slight advantage due to their experience and batting lineup. Pakistan has a very good bowling lineup, but their batting has been inconsistent. Afghanistan is a dark horse in the tournament, and they have the potential to upset any team.
World Cup 2023 Semi-Final Qualification Scenarios
Pakistan’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals are best if they win their last game against England and hope that both New Zealand and Afghanistan lose their last games. This would give Pakistan 10 points, while New Zealand and Afghanistan would have 8 points each, qualifying Pakistan for the semi-finals.
If Afghanistan wins at least one of their last two games (against Australia and South Africa) and New Zealand loses to Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and Pakistan will be tied on 10 points and their net run rate will decide who gets the fourth semi-final spot. Pakistan has a slightly better net run rate than Afghanistan, which is good news for Pakistan.
If Afghanistan wins both of its last games, they will have 12 points, which will rule out Pakistan’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals and the possibility of an India vs Pakistan semi-final.
If New Zealand wins their last game and Pakistan and Afghanistan both lose their last games, New Zealand will qualify for the semi-finals.
If New Zealand and Pakistan both win their last games and Afghanistan wins one of their last two games, then all three teams will have 10 points and their net run rate will decide who qualifies for the semi-finals. The team with the best net run rate will advance to the semi-finals.
India vs Pakistan World Cup 2023 Semi-Final Possibility
An India vs Pakistan semi-final in the World Cup 2023 is possible only if Pakistan qualifies for the semi-finals. If that happens, the first semi-final on November 15 will be between India and Pakistan at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
