Afghanistan had a heartbreaking loss to Australia after Glenn Maxwell’s heroic 201 not out took the game away from him. But still, Afghans aren’t out of the running for the semi-final race, and here’s how they can qualify.
Afghanistan has been performing great even from the start of the World Cup, they defeated the heavyweights like England and Pakistan. However, the semi-final dream isn’t over for the Afghanistan side.
How can Afghanistan qualify for the World Cup 2023 semi-finals?
Afghanistan had the worst defeat as their hopes for the Semi were very bright when they took 7 Australian wickets before touching the 100-mark. But Glen Maxwell was really a nightmare for Afghanistan who took the win away from Afghanistan.
Before the game, the ideal situation for Afghanistan was to win both matches. Well, one part of it is done and now they head to face South Africa in Ahmedabad. A win will ensure that they will have the upper hand in the equation, but that may not be enough.
Given their inferior run rate to Pakistan and New Zealand, Afghanistan will need to beat South Africa by a big margin or hope both New Zealand and Pakistan lose their next matches.
Remaining match for Afghanistan:
vs South Africa on November 10 in Ahmedabad.
Remaining match for New Zealand:
vs Sri Lanka on November 9 in Bangalore.
Remaining match for Pakistan:
vs England on November 11 in Kolkata
