The stage is set for a thrilling encounter between Pakistan and Bangladesh, with the winner progressing to the semi-finals

While Pakistan hold a statistical advantage, the semi-final equation might still change hands depending on the outcome of their upcoming clash.

While the exact equation needed for Bangladesh to catapult Pakistan will largely be reliant on who bats first and how many runs are scored, it’s likely Bangladesh will need to win by more than 51 runs if batting first or chase down their victory target within 38.3 overs if batting second.

Any other result other than a comfortable Bangladesh victory will see Pakistan clinch the final spot in the semi-finals, with a second-placed finish in Group 1 the most likely outcome for Saad Baig’s side

If Pakistan do hang on and finish second in Group 1 they will face in-form Australia in the semi-finals, with the three-time tournament victors finishing top of Group 2 and unbeaten at the event so far.

South Africa finished second in Group 2 and will face the top team from Group 1 in the semi-finals, with reigning champions India their most likely opponent
