Now, the situation is that England, Australia, and India, all can qualify for the ultimate of the World-Check Championship in opposition to New Zealand in June 2021. Let’s go step-by-step:
How can India qualify?
India is presently on the highest of the league desk. However, Kohli’s males should win the sequence by the next margins: 2-0, 2-1, 3-0, 3-1, or 4-0. Drawing the sequence is not any possibility for India (and England) as Australia would undergo if the sequence is drawn. India should go for the kill.

How can England qualify?
England is presently on the fourth spot. They should do one thing very drastic to go previous Australia’s PCT. England should win the sequence by the next margins to qualify: 3-0, 3-1, or 4-0. England’s possibilities look very slim as the Indian workforce is hard to beat on their house floor.
How can Australia qualify?
The ball isn’t within the Aussie courtroom anymore after the withdrawal from the SA sequence. However, they have a really brilliant likelihood of reserving the spot within the WTC Closing. Australia will qualify if – India vs England sequence is drawn with any score-line, If India wins the sequence 1-0 or if England wins the sequence 1-0, 2-0, 2-1.
All this may sound slightly complicated for everybody, however, one should remember the fact that every sequence would carry 120 factors. So, if a sequence has two matches then one match would carry 60 factors and so forth.
