They will probably do % points like the WTC. It doesn't really matter though, because there is no Super League after this so no chance of being relegated for finishing last place.

Going by the way Pakistan are getting thrashed by an Australia C team, and remember they lost to an England C team last year, I think we have an interesting situation here.

Sri Lanka, Pakistan, West Indies, South Africa - at the moment these are the 4 'top' nations, who find themselves at serious risk of playing the Qualifier.

What this means is that Zimbabwe, Ireland, Afghanistan, may be even Netherlands, if they can find some lucky wins there is every chance one they can find themselves directly qualifying for the World Cup.

Afghanistan, I'm very sure, will end up qualifying directly.

Ireland may have played 18 games but they've got some points in the bag, 3 wins of their next 6, somehow punching above their weight, will give them an outside chance.

Zimbabwe, still looks difficult, but not completely out of reach, they have 12 games remaining, 6 of which are against Afghans and Netherlands, and India / Aus will field weak squads... So who knows folks. Its quite wide open as of now.

Incredible win for Pakistan the other day. I must say I spoke too early regarding them. Excellent innings by Imam and Babar, 1-1 with all to play for in the decider.
