Now, Zimbabwe also has a good chance of reaching the semi-finals of the competition. On that note, here, we take a look at how Zimbabwe can qualify for the 2022 T20 World Cup Semi-Finals.

How can Zimbabwe can qualify for the 2022 T20 World Cup Semi-Finals?

Zimbabwe shared the spoils with South Africa in the first game of both sides in the T20 World Cup. Although South Africa was very close to victory, DLS rules helped Zimbabwe. Each side had to play five overs for a result but rain interrupted before the Proteas could do that. Hence, both teams got one point each.

Now, by defeating Pakistan, Zimbabwe has earned itself a real chance of reaching the semi-finals of the T20 WC. Zimbabwe first has to defeat the Netherlands and Bangladesh to put the points on the board. Of course, India is also an opponent but it will be hard to beat the men in blue. Next up, Zimbabwe must hope that South Africa loses their games to India and Pakistan. This can also happen because Pakistan also needs wins and they might come down hard on South Africa. There is a big chance that we could see Zimbabwe enter the next stage. The fans of the game will hope for that to happen.


A tournament of upsets so far

It has been a tournament of upsets so far. Sri Lanka, West Indies, England and Pakistan have all lost to lesser-established cricketing nations in this edition.

Having seen these results, ICC might take a decision to increase the size of participants for the future editions. This would help the teams better and will also make the tournament interesting.
