With this triumph, New Zealand positions themselves on the verge of securing a semi-final spot, currently in fourth place with 10 points, maintaining a superior net run-rate over rivals Pakistan and Afghanistan. For both Pakistan and Afghanistan to qualify, they require unlikely victory margins in their final matches against England and South Africa, respectively.
Despite facing four consecutive losses, the Black Caps rebounded in their last league match, setting the stage for a potential semi-final clash against the undefeated India. Ravindra, leading the batting chart with 565 runs, also displayed his prowess in bowling by taking two wickets in the match.
On the flip side, Sri Lanka end their league stage campaign with a seventh loss in nine matches, facing a challenging run in the Cricket World Cup.
