They have gone undefeated so far, first surviving a final-ball thriller against West Indies to cement their spot in the knock-outs. They will finish on top of the group if they win against Pakistan in the next game, but an upset loss could see them finish second, due to West Indies’ superior net run-rate.

Everything to play for as West Indies take on India in a virtual quarterfinal on Sunday.


Pakistan are mathematically still in the running for the semi-finals thanks to their plucky win over India, but to do so they would have to thrash England by a big margin to overtake them on net run-rate.


India could long rue their Duckworth-Lewis defeat to Pakistan. That loss, combined with a narrow defeat to England, leaves them needing to beat West Indies to advance to the semi-finals. They have the home ground advantage, but West Indies have impressed since their warm-up loss to Australia, so it’s tough to pick a winner.


Bangladesh have finished at the bottom of the heap. A loss to Pakistan ended their winless campaign.
