Although Sri Lanka is yet to play the final match against the Netherlands tonight in Abu Dhabi by virtue of their two huge victories against Namibia and Ireland with a superior Net run rate, they top the pints table in Group A. Even if the Netherlands win today Sri Lanka will remain in top spot in Group A. Scotland having played all three games top the points table in Group B. Bangladesh became the second team to qualify yesterday when they beat Papua New Guinea in convincing fashion. By virtue of winning two games they qualify for a berth in Super 12 in Group A.it is highly unlikely that Namibia or Ireland who clash today as their third and final game that they could get even close to Sri Lanka’s net run rate.
