England find themselves in a precarious situation after Scotland’s massive win over Oman on the same day India beat Pakistan in New York.

While Pakistan’s second straight loss in the T20 World Cup 2024 has put the team’s chances of qualifying for the T20 World Cup 2024, England too find themselves in a similar situation after Scotland’s massive win over Oman on the same day India beat Pakistan in New York.

Both Pakistan and England were the T20 World Cup 2022 finalists, with England going to lift the crown in Australia. Still, now the situation is such that both top teams could be eliminated from the T20 World Cup in the league stages.

In Group B, Scotland, with five points from three matches, is currently leading the table. Their impressive performance, including a win over Oman, has put them in a strong position.

Scotland picked up wins against Namibia and Oman. The scenario is such that England, with games remaining, can only reach a maximum of 5 points.

England, on the other hand, will need to deliver big wins in their remaining matches to keep their Super 8 qualification hopes alive and also Hope that Scotland do not upset Australia in the final league game. The stakes couldn’t be higher.
