Both Pakistan and Sri Lanka have two points each and so Thursday’s game has become a knockout match with the winning team reaching the final on September 17.

If the match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka is canceled due to rain, the Sri Lankan team will reach the final without having played the match. In fact, Pakistan’s net run rate is very poor. If the match is canceled in such a situation, Sri Lanka will advance to the final. After two Super 4 games, Pakistan’s net run rate is -1.892. While Sri Lanka’s net run rate is -0.200.
