Cricket News: ODI World Cup 2023 qualification scenarios | Will Zimbabwe qualify for the 2023 ODI World Cup?

Zimbabwe have put themselves in a strong position to qualify for the 2023 ODI World Cup in India. In front of a full and passionate crowd in Harare, the hosts put on a magnificent display against West Indies, who themselves are in danger of missing out on the showpiece tournament.

Sri Lanka are also well placed to qualify, with the Netherlands, Scotland and Oman all still in with a shot.

ODI World Cup 2023 Qualification Scenarios

Super Sixes table:

TeamPointsNRR
1. Sri Lanka61.832
2. Zimbabwe60.752
3. Scotland2-0.060
4. Netherlands2-0.739
5. West Indies0-0.350
6. Oman0-2.139

Here are the scenarios for the six remaining teams in the 2023 World Cup Qualifier. The top two teams after the super six stage will qualify to the ODI World Cup.

Zimbabwe

  • 6 points in Super Sixes
  • Starting NRR in super sixes: +0.752
  • Remaining matches: Sri Lanka, Scotland.
  • Maximum points they can finish on after next phase: 10

Hosts Zimbabwe are on the doorstep of the 2023 ODI World Cup. Their tight win over Oman lifts them to six points, meaning that one more win should see them qualify.

Sri Lanka

  • 4 points in Super Sixes
  • Current starting NRR in super sixes: +2.698
  • Remaining matches: Zimbabwe, West Indies, Netherlands.
  • Maximum points they can finish on after next phase: 10

Sri Lanka are in a strong position. They beat Scotland and Oman well, which means they take a very strong net run rate into the super sixes. Two wins against Zimbabwe, West Indies and the Netherlands should be enough to qualify to the World Cup.

Netherlands

  • 2 points in Super Sixes
  • Current starting NRR in super sixes: -0.739
  • Remaining matches: Scotland, Oman, Sri Lanka.
  • Maximum points they can finish on after next phase: 8

Extraordinary. Netherlands looked gone when chasing a mammoth 375 against West Indies, especially after they were beaten soundly by Zimbabwe earlier in the tournament. The efforts of Teja Nidamanuru, Scott Edwards and Logan van Beek have given the Dutch, who are missing a number of first-team players, a shot at making the World Cup after a thrilling super over victory.

If they win all their remaining games, they will finish on eight points and should qualify.

Scotland

  • 2 points in Super Sixes
  • Current starting NRR in super sixes: -0.060
  • Remaining matches: Zimbabwe, West Indies, Netherlands.
  • Maximum points they can finish on after next phase: 8

Scotland will likely need to win all three matches to stand a chance of qualification. They will move to eight points if that happens. If they win two, they will finish with six and need to hope Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka don’t finish with more than six points. However, Scotland’s net run rate, currently negative, could come into equation at that stage.

West Indies

  • 0 points in Super Sixes
  • Current starting NRR in super sixes: -0.350
  • Remaining matches: Scotland, Oman, Sri Lanka.
  • Maximum points they can finish on after next phase: 6

West Indies are on the mat. Their error-ridden loss to Netherlands means they will enter the super sixes on zero points, four points behind leaders Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka.

To qualify with six points on NRR, West Indies need:

  • To beat Scotland (moves West Indies to two points, keeps Scotland on two points)
  • Sri Lanka to beat Zimbabwe (moves Sri Lanka to eight points, keeps Zimbabwe on six points with lower NRR)
  • To beat Oman (moves West Indies to four points)
  • Scotland to beat Zimbabwe (moves Scotland to four points, keeps Zimbabwe on six points)
  • To beat Sri Lanka (moves West Indies to six points, level with Zimbabwe)
  • Either Scotland or Netherlands to have a lower net run rate with six points

Oman

  • 0 points in Super Sixes
  • Starting NRR in super sixes: -2.139
  • Remaining matches: West Indies, Netherlands.
  • Maximum points they can finish on after next phase: 4

Oman are all but eliminated after their promising showing against Zimbabwe, where they just fell short by 14 runs. A Sri Lanka win over Netherlands on 30 June will confirm their elimination.
