England Qualified for Super 8 – 2024 T20 World Cup

After facing multiple hurdles, England qualified for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 stage after the Australia vs Scotland match resulted in the favour of the “Three Lions”.

After their first match against Scotland was abandoned due to rain, England faced a tragic defeat against Australia in their second game. Following a dreadful start, England bounced back and won their remaining two group matches played against Oman and Namibia.

In a do-or-die match against Namibia, England pulled 41 runs victory by the DLS method after rain intervened in the crucial game.

Though England won their last two matches and sustained a safe spot in the Super 8 race, they were forced to depend on the match result of the Australia vs Scotland clash. As per the rules, England will qualify for the Super 8 if Australia emerges as the winner.

On the other hand, if Scotland wins the game they will seal their spot in the Super 8 along with Australia.

Scotland is one of the few teams not to face any defeats in the ongoing 2024 T20 World Cup. After their first match against England was abandoned due to rain, they won their next two matches and made a safe spot in the points table.

With the victory, Australia helped their arch-rivals England to qualify for the Super 8. England has been placed in Group 2 along with the West Indies, South Africa and USA.

England will face West Indies on June 20 in Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia to play their first Super 8 game of the tournament.
