India leads the Super Six points table with eight points while South Africa is the other side to have qualified with six points. Pakistan and Sri Lanka are on four points each and close to qualifying, while Bangladesh is on two points and with a long shot at qualifying as it needs to pull off a huge win in its last match.
Ireland plays its last match against South Africa but is out of contention as it has no points in the Super Six, which includes points carried over from wins against other qualifiers from a side’s preliminary group, even as they play qualifiers from the other group in the second stage of the tournament.
World champion Australia, England, New Zealand and the West Indies have already qualified for the ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 by finishing in the top four of the ICC Women’s Championship.
Pakistan’s huge 86 runs victory over Ireland on Friday means it has not only boosted its run-rate but also gains confidence going into the match against arch rival India.
