Pakistan is the only team of this season that has won all 5 matches in group stage levels which helped it top the points table in Group 2. Pakistan on Sunday beat Scotland and finalized the knockouts list.

England lost one game against South Africa but still, it ranked number 1 in group 2. Despite defeating England, South Africa still couldn’t make it to the semifinals, the reason is they have a lower run rate (NRR) than England. Though England, Australia and South Africa have reached 8 points but they two could only make it to the semifinals. Australia with an NRR of +1.216 had a victory against West Indies and finished at second place.
