Can India qualify for the Women’s World Cup 2022 semifinals?

Yes, India stands a chance to qualify for the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 semifinals. India will have to displace either West Indies or England to qualify for the Women’s World Cup semifinals.

Currently, India has 6 points from 6 matches, while West Indies has 7 points from 7 matches and England has 6 points from 6 matches. Australia has already confirmed its place in the semifinals with 12 points, while South Africa is also most likely to go through as it has 9 points so far. Other three teams -New Zealand, Bangladesh and Pakistan are out of the race.

India will have to rely on various combinations to qualify for the Women’s World Cup semifinals. Both India and England have one group stage match left, the result of which will determine India’s future in the tournament.

Let us look at the possible scenarios below:

1. India wins against South Africa

The first and best scenario is for India to win their last match against South Africa on March 27. A win will assure India a confirmed place in the semifinals. It will put India easily ahead of West Indies with 8 points and then even if England wins its last group-stage match, both India and England will qualify for the World Cup Semifinals.

2. England to lose against Bangladesh

If England loses against Bangladesh on March 27, then India stands the chance to qualify for the World Cup 2022 semifinals even if it loses against South Africa. However, India will need to maintain a higher net run rate than England to qualify in that case because both will have the same number of points. Currently, India’s net run rate is +0.768 and England’s net run rate is +0.778.
