Pakistan are undefeated in the T20 World Cup 2021 and were the first team to reach the tournament’s semi-finals after their consecutive victories against India, New Zealand, Afghanistan, and Namibia in the Super 12 stage.

Pakistan will face Scotland — who have exited the tournament — this Sunday in Sharjah. However, despite the Men In Green being the first ones to book their place in the semis, it is still unclear whom they will be up against.

There are two groups in the Super 12 stage. The team which ends at the top of each group will play the team which ranks second on the other group’s points table.

England — despite losing to South Africa in Sharjah — have topped Group 1, while Australia emerged as the runner ups.

In Group 2, Pakistan are currently on the top, while New Zealand are in second place.

Now, there are two scenarios of  whom Pakistan will face in the semi final:

Scenario 1:

If Pakistan remain undefeated and beat Scotland in their match today (Sunday), they will face Australia in Dubai.

Scenario 2:

If New Zealand beat Afghanistan and Pakistan lose against Scotland,  the Black Caps will top the points table and the Men In Green will rank second. In this situation, Pakistan will play against England in Abu Dhabi.

Scenario 3:

Regardless of the result of Pakistan’s match against Scotland, if Afghanistan beats New Zealand and India beats Namibia comprehensively, Pakistan will be table toppers and play against Australia.

However, the semi-final will see India and England in action, in case of India qualifying for the final fours.
