Sri Lanka can play, Africa depends on others
Sri Lanka’s team is present at number three in the World Cup points table and it also has a golden chance to reach this final. For this, Sri Lanka will have to win both the Test matches being played against New Zealand in March 2023, making a big upset. If Sri Lanka makes a clean sweep in this series and the Indian team does not beat Australia with a clean sweep, then it will play the final with Australia.
At the same time, due to this draw and after losing the series, South Africa’s chances are looking less. South Africa need to beat West Indies 2-0 to qualify for the final. Even after this, Africa would like Sri Lanka to lose a match while India should not win against Australia by a big margin. If this happens then Africa can qualify.
