West Indies team World T20 Qualification scenarios


West Indies (Points 4; NRR +0.893)

With two resounding wins in their first two games, the West Indies sit pretty on top of the table in Group 1. Their NRR of +0.893 is the best in the group which means they already have a foot in the door to the semifinal. They are the only side which can progress even if they lose both their remaining games.

Matches left:

vs South Africa, Nagpur, 25 March 2016

vs Afghanistan, Nagpur, 27 March 2016
Qualification scenarios:

- Win both their matches and go to semifinal as the topper of the group.

- If they beat South Africa and lose to Afghanistan, they are clearly through as only one among England or Sri Lanka can match them on points.

- If they lose to South Africa and beat Afghanistan, they will either go through directly or will put them in a three way tie with South Africa and England depending on other results and net run rate will come into play.

- They can qualify even if they lose both their remaining matches, thanks to their superior net run rate, if other results come their way. The most realistic possible elimination of West Indies can happen if they lose both their games, South Africa and England beat Sri Lanka and Afghanistan lose to England and then falling behind in run rate.
