How can England qualify for T20 World Cup semi-finals?

All three sides are currently level on points after four matches with a win, a loss and a no result.

Despite this, both New Zealand and Australia are favourites against Ireland and Afghanistan.

Therefore, there is a possibility that net run rate will decide who progresses to the semi-finals.

New Zealand hold the advantage in terms of net run rate (+2.233) for now despite England beating then by 20 runs on Tuesday.

England sit on a +0.547 net run rate, holding an advantage over Australia who are on -0.304.

For it to go to net run rate, all three teams at the top of the table must finish level on points ahead of the semi-finals, and this looks like a real possibility.
