ODI World Cup 2023 Top 10 Teams: The West Indies, who won the first two ODI World Cups, have been ruled out of the 2023 World Cup to be played in India in October-November. After the Caribbean team is out of the Super-10 of the World Cup, now these four teams have a chance to join the main event.
Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Scotland and the Netherlands are among the two teams in the race to qualify for the 50-over World Cup starting in India from October 5. Sri Lanka has six points from three Super Six matches. Sri Lanka, who have been unbeaten so far in the tournament, will qualify for the World Cup if they beat Zimbabwe on Sunday.
On the other hand, even if the Sri Lankan team loses against Zimbabwe on July 2, it will still have a chance to qualify for the main event of the Pakistan World Cup. However, then he will have to defeat the West Indies in his last Super Six match on July 7.
Zimbabwe also have six points from three matches and have won all their matches like Sri Lanka. The team’s net run rate (0.752) is not very good and despite a win against Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe’s road to making it to the World Cup will not be easy.
A defeat against Scotland in their last match could rule Zimbabwe out of the tournament. Scotland has four points in three matches. The victory against the West Indies has increased the team’s hopes of qualifying. If the team wins both its remaining matches and the Sri Lankan team defeats Zimbabwe, then the Scotland team will qualify. If the Zimbabwe team wins this match, then Sri Lanka, Scotland and Zimbabwe can have eight points each. In such a situation, the net run rate will matter a lot. Scotland’s net run rate is 0.188 and they will have to win at any cost in their next match against Zimbabwe on Tuesday.
The Netherlands have two points from three matches and will have to register big wins in their remaining two matches against Oman and Scotland to make it to the World Cup. The Netherlands team would like Sri Lanka to qualify, so that the second place match will be between them, Zimbabwe and Scotland. Netherlands has the lowest net run rate (minus 0.560) among the four teams.
