Pakistan have overtaken Afghanistan to secure the third spot in the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League.
Playing a bilateral series against the Netherlands in Rotterdam, Pakistan have sealed the series 2-0, with one match left scheduled to take place on August 20.
Following their back-to-back wins, Pakistan have 110 points after playing 17 matches in the current cycle with a net run rate of +0.221, as per the latest ICC standings.
England are on top with 125 points, Bangladesh are placed second with 120 points, and India are placed on the seventh spot on the list with 89 points after losing four matches out of nine played.
Each team earns 10 points for a win, five for a tie/no result/abandoned match, and zero for a loss.
In case Pakistan clean sweep the Netherlands in the ongoing series, it will lift their points to 120 and assure them of a place in next year’s event proper, irrespective of how their remaining two series against New Zealand and Afghanistan pan out.
