If Pakistan wins matches, then it’s going to be part of Bangladesh on ninety one factors however may be ranked in the back of its Asian competitors by using a fragment.
within the scenario of Pakistan triumphing the series, it’ll pass ahead of Bangladesh and, as such, will enhance its chances of qualifying directly for the event it won in Australia in 1992.
at the flipside, Australia will hold its pre- collection points if it wins the collection 4-1, whilst it’s going to concede one factor if it wins 3-2. Australia can fall from the pinnacle pedestal however to make it happen, Pakistan will must win by means of 4-1 or higher.
