Under-19 Women’s T20 WC 2023 Qualification scenarios Explained, Check how Shafali Varma led India U19 team can qualify for Semifinals?
Current scenario – GROUP A
India and Australia are currently top of the table with six points each. Both have completed their round of games at the Super Six stage, where each team plays two other teams.
South Africa survived a nerve-jangling final over to beat Sri Lanka by one run to end their World Cup campaign on a high.
Even with victory South Africa were unable to usurp India or Australia on net run rate, with only Bangladesh now able to snatch one of the qualification places from Group 1.
Bangladesh have their remaining fixture against UAE in the last round of Group 1 games. If Bangladesh win the match, Group 1 will have 3 teams level on six points, making the entry into the semi-finals dependent on net run rate.
Both India and Australia have pretty good net run rates at the end of day 11 of the tournament and are well-placed to make the semi-finals.
WOMEN’S U19 WORLD CUP 2023 Qualification scenarios :
If teams finish on equal points in the Super Six groups, the teams to progress to the semi-finals will be decided by “the greatest number of wins in its Super Six Group” as per tournament playing conditions.This means that points carried over from the Group stage would also be a factor in deciding overall points in the Super Six stage and the points table already reflects the same.
However, it is to be noted that not all points were carried into the Super Six. Points earned in matches involving the fourth-place finisher in each First Round group were not carried over to the Super Six stage. According to the Playing Conditions for the tournament, equal points in the Super Six stage will mean semi-final spots are decided in the following priority order:
16.10.6 Super 6
In the event of teams finishing on equal points in their Group, the right to progress to the semi-finals will be decided in the following order of priority:
a) The team with the greatest number of wins in its Super 6 Group will be placed in the higher position.
b) If there are teams with equal points and equal wins in its Super 6 Group, then in such case the team with the higher net run rate in its Super 6 Group will be placed in the higher position (refer to clause 16.10.9 below for the calculation of net run rate).
c) If two or more teams are still equal, they will be ordered according to the head-to-head match played between them (points then net run rate in those matches).
d) If the above does not resolve the Super 6 Group ordering, or if all matches within a Super 6 Group produce no results, then the teams will be ordered as per their original Super 12s Group seedings.
