In a high-voltage, low-scoring drama at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York, India beat Pakistan by six runs. In the last ball thriller, Babar Azam led the Men in Green and failed to chase 119 runs against Jasprit Bumrah and company. 

With this win, India has virtually qualified for the playoffs. The Rohit Sharma-led team just needs one win in the next two games to officially confirm that. However, things have turned a little difficult for Pakistan. With two back-to-back losses, they are under a lot of pressure and threatened with elimination.

What is the Qualification scenario for Pakistan:

In group A, India clinches the top position with two back-to-back wins. They have four points in two games. On the other hand, the United States of America also had two wins in two games, including one against Pakistan. They are second in the table. 

Canada jumps to the fourth position in the group with a loss over Pakistan and a loss from the USA. Being the third team now, Pakistan will have to win the remaining game in the tournament with a good NRR. Now, the scenarios have changed a lot. Since the USA is also at four points like India, Pakistan will hope for either team to lose in India vs. USA match, and then the team that loses this match should lose their remaining game for Pakistan to qualify.

Despite winning these two matches, Pakistan will depend on other results, especially matches involving the USA. If the USA wins one of their next two games, they will be through, and Pakistan will be eliminated, while if the US flatters, Pakistan will need to go past their NRR to make it into the Super 8.

What is the Qualification scenario for India?

As India has the best NRR and two wins in the first two games in Group A, they hold an advantage in the qualification race. A win in the next two games will confirm their berth in the Super 8 stage. Notably, India will play the USA on June 12 and Canada on June 15.
