Most cricket fans are aware of the latest development in the cricket fixtures according to which Pak VS Zim cricket series has been changed into tri-series with the addition of West Indies. This change will not only provide fans with better quality cricket to watch but can also have dramatic effects on the Champions Trophy qualification.
Before this announcement, it was obvious that Bangladesh had qualified for the tournament and the chances of them disqualifying were minute. Pakistan was pushed to number nine in the ICC ranking but Pakistan had a chance to perform well against Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe to get eight spot and push West Indies down to number nine. However, this tri-series has presented an interesting scenario now.
A situation can develop in a way that Pakistan and West Indies can go up to push Bangladesh down to ninth position. The results of Bangladesh series against India and South and Pakistan matches against Sri Lanka as well as the tri-series will finally decide the two bottom teams to qualify for Champion Trophy. At present, any two of the three teams (Pakistan, West Indies and Bangladesh) can qualify. The comeback of Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir has also been anticipated in this series, which can be real good news for cricket fans.
So, what are your thoughts on it? Which teams do you think will qualify for the Champions Trophy? Pakistan and West Indies are currently facing the dangers of not making it to the big tournament.
