ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 points table


With Pakistan playing Canada in their third match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, all eyes would be on them as anything but a win will knock the 2009 champions out of the tournament.  


USA with two wins is setting at the second spot in the Group A points table which is topped by the Indian team.

For Pakistan to qualify, they have to not only win their last two matches but also hope that the USA loses its last two matches. In that case, Pakistan would have to win its matches by a combined total of 10 runs and the USA would have to lose their matches by a combined total of 18 runs or more.

In Group B, Scotland is at the top of the table with two wins and a wash-out from their three games. Australia has won both their matches and therefore they are in the second spot. 


For England to qualify for the Super 8, the defending champions would not only have to win big against Namibia and Oman in their next two matches but also hope that the Scots do not surprise the Aussies.

Afghanistan and West Indies will be on their toes in their next few games as Group C is going to see a lot of changes. While New Zealand, who were thrashed by the Afghans will play the West Indies, the Afghans will also play the hosts. 


In that case, Kiwis would have to make sure that they win all their remaining three matches and hope that whoever between Afghanistan and West Indies wins the battle between the two sides, wins it by a big margin. That will bring the net run rate of the losing team down and allow the Kiwis to go through as the second-best team.

In Group D, South Africa has already made it to the Super 8. However, their win against Bangladesh in a low-scoring thriller on Monday, June 9 has kept the hopes alive of other teams in the group. Sri Lanka, which has lost both its matches, can also go through if they beat Nepal and the Netherlands by a big margin. But they would have to hope that the Dutch beat Bangladesh. 


For Bangladesh, who are in the second position, the equation is simple- win against the Netherlands and Nepal and go through to the next round.
